You have to be purposefully misreading what I'm writing to get your conclusion.

If anything, I'm viewing the entire society as an organism and taxes as a needed injection that will cause some pain. Where can we give the injection in the way that will cause the least pain overall?

I'm not out to stick it to the rich because I hate them. I don't hate them. Although I wouldn't consider my family to be rich, we aren't poor. I am certainly fine with paying taxes and with paying more than what people who have less than me have to pay. That's part of what I do to help everyone succeed. It's part of being American. I'm certainly not angry about those who have more than me, but I think it is fair that they would have to pay more than me in taxes. Because we all use the things that our taxes support. We all benefit from them. When the poorest among us do better, everyone does better.

    It's got nothing to do with value... but in HURTING a social group you do not like.

      Hurting financially. Pretending his point was their 'feelings', you literally feigned ignorance to create an argument.
