The day that the rich become a bigger problem than the federal government will be a day for rejoicing. The current federal personal income tax tab impoverishes every one except perhaps the very rich, which class includes most of our elected officials.
The federal government has no legitimate role in leveling personal income. If the richest 1% disappeared tomorrow, we would still be choking to death on debt. If the richest 1% doubled tomorrow, we would still be choking to death on debt.
Speaking of death, we are in a do or die struggle with our own government, and the outcome will be death or imprisonment or enslavement; the way it looks today, our government will not be the victim in this struggle.
Which government and/or party is going to save us? I don't know, but it certainly won't be the government or either party now trying to choke us to death with debt.
