Tax The high So The Government Can Help The Poor Pay Attention
The other day, I talked with a left-leaning Bernie Sanders supporter who disliked Clinton and consequently did not vote this time around in the 2016 Presidential Election. He told me we should tax the high to pay for college for every American, to pay for health care of every American and to give a minimum check to every person who did not have a job. I smiled and said; oh really and he said; Yah!
So, I asked him how much did he think all that would cost. He said; a lot, but if we tax the high we could pay for it all. truly, I explained to him that there were many billionaires but if we took all of their money it wouldnt already run our government for 6-months and then they wouldnt be high anymore, theyd be as poor as a family living in the projects, so they wouldnt have anything to tax next year to pay. I suggested that maybe we should tax the high so the government could help the poor pay more attention. Without thinking about it, he just said Yah!
You see, he didnt care what the tax was for, he just wanted to soak the high. I asked him if he realized that high people were a small minority in America, and that wed be attacking minorities if we taxed them more than everyone else. He said; Who cares, tax the high! Okay, so I asked him if he cared about high people and he said; Hell No! I laughed and I said that was a good thing that he didnt care about them? He asked me why, and I told him because with talk like that I bet they dont care about you either. He just stopped talking for a moment to consider that point.
Then he said to me; The high have everything. And, I asked him if hed like to be high too, and he said; Of course and then I asked him if it would be okay if I hired the government to come and take all his money, his house and belongings. He said, no because he felt that wouldnt be right. I told him; tough luck, because next time someone like Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton runs for office I will vote for them to come take your money and then give it to me. He was starting to see my point, but angry hed lost the argue. truly, he lost more than that, hed already lost his moral high ground. Think on this.
