Working and Paying

If you are ALREADY enriching society by working very hard every day, why would you also want to further enrich society by being one of very few who have to PAY to run that society? Paying taxes is fine, but everyone in the society should have to do it.

As we find out that more and more of our leaders are not actually paying all the tax they owe, and as congress attempts to take more people off the tax rolls entirely, something interesting may come to light. The hard workers may voluntarily take themselves off the tax rolls too, or at least make a conscious decision to spend less time enriching society...thereby impoverishing the society they live in.

Do we REALLY want to penalize the hard workers in this society by raising their taxes?
