Who is the better man?
Is the man who freely gives to the poor a better man than the one who was taxed and had his money given to the poor?
Is the man who gives his time to charity a better man than the one who takes a second job to feed his family?
Is the man who is taxed and still gives to charity but lets his family go hungry better than the man who feeds his family but spends his extra time with his children?
My taxes increased a lot this last year. My net gain barely increased at all. I am now considering the prospect of traveling for business in order to better support my family. I would not even have to think of it if the IRS were not sending me love letters because I "underpaid" my taxes.
Now the Democrat presidential candidates are telling me that they are going to take more. They are going to take more "for the greater good."
Should they win the House, the Senate, and the Presidency, they are going to take more and then, instead of telling people they can feel good about all of there property that is being given to charity, they are going to try to shame the "richest Americans" (which I certainly am not).
They are going to take from them with their hands and vilify them with their mouths.
Because they do not like having their property taken from them, Democrats will consider them bad men.
