Of course there is an incentive to try harder.
If I am making a wimpy 10 bars of candy an hour and the candy monster comes and takes 30% I am left with 7 bars to do with what I like.

If I am making 100 bars/hour and the monster comes and takes 30% I am left with 70 bars to do with what I like.

Therefore the more candy bars I make the more it benefits me and the more it benefits my country

The problem is, we have too many candy hoarders that have so much candy they are forced to hide it in their pockets. They even move it into other countries because they don't want to pay the same 30% as everyone else.

Heck they are even willing to pay people tons of candy to overlook their candy when it's audit time.

The bag solution you provide is a bit off, but still fits. The worst way to measure candy is by the bag full. 15% of a pillow case is way more than 15% of a plastic grocery bag. What some people try to do is put all their good candy into a smaller bag so when the monster comes he can't take all of the good candy.

Flat tax is the only thing that makes any sense at all.

Imagine this same experiment where you only took 10% from a bag filled with candy and took 30% from a bag half full.
This is the problem with the current economic state of this country.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11169418


We should just get rid of the income tax....

I know that wouldn't happen....politicians love wasting our money too much for that to ever happen.

I don't understand why people advocate taking more money from people. Just because those people earn more than them..

I don't want people who make more than me, to pay more taxes....that's not right, let the people keep what they earn.

I love that smilie that a few people post, says "I never understood why it is considered greed to want to keep what you earn, yet not considered greed to want and take what others have earned."
 Quoting: *Evan*


Yeah I'll agree the income tax is completely absurd. But the way I look at it its like this. If I am a high income earner and rely on people to do the heavy lifting for me, i.e. a job creator. Then I rely more heavily on public transportation, health care, road maintenance, electric, water, sewer, gas. Cause not only do my employees need these things to get to their job, but also I use more federal and state facilities and utilities. I own buildings that need to be up more often than not.

My workers rely on the same utilities as I, but if the road is closed they just can't get to work. If the power s out, they don't make any widgets for the day. Sure some may still collect pay, but most will not.

So as a high income job creator I rely more heavily on govt. Utilities and transportation. Heck I can even run my business through the post office.

So this is how I justify the flat tax rate ideology. Yes I make more so I owe more, but in all actuality I rely on public services more so than the average worker. Considering workers only rely on these things for their own good, I rely on utilities and transportation for each one of my workers and for the business as a whole.

Do I think its fair for high earners to have to pay more percentage wise than a normal wage earner? No but having to pay more into a system that I rely more heavily on is something that I totally agree with.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11169418


I see your point of view. I have a few disagreements with it, but all in all I see your points.

cheers
 Quoting: *Evan*


cheers

I'll agree there are definitely some holes to my theory, but there are holes in every financial theory.

That is why there isn't any one that has withstood the test of time.

Income tax needs to die either way.
And if you are an american and make most of your money in the US you can't shelter your earnings.

OP, like the 'comedian' are simply put, not very intelligent, and much like the GOP talking heads, are simply trying to use a horribly inaccurate, and frankly dishonest analogy to try to appeal to the misguided ideas of those even dumber than they are.

Allow me to explain;

The question of 'redistributing wealth', as stated in the very quotes within that video, is of asking the rich to pay the same share of taxes as everyone else. Their 'fair share'.

If you are to make the (again, shockingly unintelligent) analogy of comparing taxes to kids and their Halloween candy, this would be a more accurate setup;


ALL the kids are required by pay back a certain percentage of the candy they received to pay for the shuttle van that carried them around all night. The kids who gathered up 1 bag of candy all have to pay 30% of their candy into the van fund.

But the kids who gathered up 3 bags of candy only have to pay 15% of their candy into the van fund.

Now go ask the kids if that's fair and see what kind of answers you get.

You poor people are just so, so dumb. You lack the mental skills to even evaluate the validity of an analogy.
 Quoting: CleverMoniker 26707174


You're fucking stupid. The truth is, based on your analogy, the ones with 3 bags of candy would have to pay 50% of their candy to the van fund. Kids that bitch because they have little or no candy would be given candy through the van fund without doing anything to earn their candy.

After a few years of this van fund the kids with 3 bags of candy paying 50% start to get pissed. They find ways to keep more of the candy they earned by hiding it in the van.

Poor people are just jealous of rich people, that's the basis of everything.

Re: COMEDIAN ‘REDISTRIBUTES’ CHILDREN’S CANDY IN HILARIOUS ‘OBAMA-STYLE’ HALLOWEEN PRANK
it's a lame prank referring to wealth redistribution from the top five percent down, a large part of middle class developement in history. the right wing US media has twisted this into some evil communist notion of wealth redistrubution in a very cynical way, which then gets repeated parrot-style by mindless right-wing people. Wealth redistribution is simply the process of creating a more equitable society with a bigger middle class via higher taxes on the wealthy. Americans really need to stop allowing right wing media interests from fucking their interests big-time.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14967818


This is wrong. Higher taxes, on anybody, have never helped the middle class. The rich will always be rich (they’ve got the money to pay off who they need to pay off to make sure of it) and the poor will always be poor. The war the government has always waged is on the middle class. The middle class serves no purpose to the government.

Forget about party affiliation. I’m neither republican nor democrat. Both parties are a different side of the same coin. Pick your poison, fascism or socialism, either way it’s a very small group controlling everybody else. Forget about the fact that the redistributionist’s are playing on words and ignoring the difference between wage income and investment income. Also forget about trying to figure out what a single dollar bill is worth to the government over its lifetime (how many thousands or millions of times is that same dollar taxed). Lastly forget about the fact that our entire tax system is so broken that any discussion about fixing the tax code should start with a blank sheet.

The only thing you have to remember and this was government 101 until about 15 to 20 years ago, is that the government is not here to help or to be trusted and should always be kept at arm’s length. That’s what this country was founded on and the philosophy is even truer today than it was then.

I understand the philosophy of an increasing tax burden (percentage) for increasing WAGE income; being that everybody has to pay for basic cost of living (food, water, shelter, clothing, etc.), which is a higher burden of income for lower income earners, if they are taxed at the same rate as higher income earners they will have less % of disposable income than higher income earners. Though I understand it and grudgingly accept it I don’t believe in the broader philosophy. I firmly believe the federal government should stay out of the people’s business, should only pay for defense and upkeep of a national transportation system and everything else should be handled at the state level. The one basic fact that all democrats fail to look square in the face (that is voters, not the politicians, they know this) is that higher taxes hurt the middle class. When companies have to pay more in taxes they have less revenue for new hires, higher salaries, and bonuses for the middle class. When companies have to scale back the first to go are the blue collar positions.

Either way you slice it, at the end of the day, government reach hurts only one class.

Those kids didn't earn that candy so how is it unfair to redistribute it?

And what's with all of this "me, mine" stuff? It teaches kids to be selfish not to mention look at how attached they get to something so stupid and destructive as candy. Is just silly to teach them to get so attached to anything.

This is bullshit. There is more than enough candy for everyone! Trick or treat wouldn't even be an option if it wasn't for the adults (government). The rich wouldn't have what they have if it wasn't for the government. Who is the government? The upper echelon is usually the wealthy. But the bulk of it is the 99%. So it serves in the 1% best interest to hand out that hoarded candy. Otherwise the kids are going leave a trick if they don't get s treat....French revolution style!

If Obama wins the popular vote it will prove that more Americans would rather have hand outs than earn their way, have self respect, and gain others respect.

If Obama wins the pop. vote it will show that the majority of Americans are simply content to exist, not accomplish.

This is not the American dream. This is not the America I grew up in.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19430158

The confusion arises due to the gray area (in general perception) of defining what type of income something is.

Take these 3 scenarios:

1) If you keep all your candy at home in your closet, you're not making anything extra. You have no extra income from it, so you pay nothing extra.

2) If you trick or treat every year to get more candy, you're making more than someone that doesn't trick or treat. Since you have extra income from it, you'll pay some sort of tax on it.

3) If you put your huge stash of candy in the bank for 2% interest each year, you are essentially "investing" that candy to make more candy... Once again, you are making some extra income and will pay some sort of tax on it.

Should there be an inherent difference between the income in #2 and the income in #3? Should the candy that you "work" for be treated differently than the candy that you "invest" for? Obviously, the current system says YES, but that is where a lot of people disagree. At the end of the day, candy is still candy to them.

Or the kids who's parents were too busy working two minimum wage jobs to take them trick or treating all night. Clearly its not a level playing field. Those kids who have the ability to go out and get three bags of candy are usually only able to do so because they had a head start not because they worked that much harder.

That's nice of your child to worship a satanic pagan custom then share his ritualistic offerings to others.

Awww....what would Jesus do?

That's awesome. That's the spirit we need around here.

But notice your kid did that of her own free will because she cared. She didn't go around and steal at gunpoint other kids candy to redistribute to those who hadn't gone trick or treating.

OP, like the 'comedian' are simply put, not very intelligent, and much like the GOP talking heads, are simply trying to use a horribly inaccurate, and frankly dishonest analogy to try to appeal to the misguided ideas of those even dumber than they are.

Allow me to explain;

The question of 'redistributing wealth', as stated in the very quotes within that video, is of asking the rich to pay the same share of taxes as everyone else. Their 'fair share'.

If you are to make the (again, shockingly unintelligent) analogy of comparing taxes to kids and their Halloween candy, this would be a more accurate setup;


ALL the kids are required by pay back a certain percentage of the candy they received to pay for the shuttle van that carried them around all night. The kids who gathered up 1 bag of candy all have to pay 30% of their candy into the van fund.

But the kids who gathered up 3 bags of candy only have to pay 15% of their candy into the van fund.

Now go ask the kids if that's fair and see what kind of answers you get.

You poor people are just so, so dumb. You lack the mental skills to even evaluate the validity of an analogy.
 Quoting: CleverMoniker 26707174


Why do you want to rob from someone to give to others?

The solution is simple. Eliminate every single tax out there. All of them. Replace them with a consumption tax, a VAT.

If you consume you pay. If you save, you earn interest. You could all but eliminate the IRS. Then everyone pays their fair share.

I agree that would be fair, but here we have both!!! yak

That's a really clever way to teach children about taxes. Hell should have taught them income tax at the same time, take their candy and put into your own pocket. Pretty cool video.

i can't believe those kids stood up to individual rights..they must be home schoolers
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25595420


Very likely. Or you just don't piss off a bunch of kids by stealing their candy, they'll revolt. Wait.... they're doing the same thing to us with taxation without representation? Oh, well.... let's just do nothing.
