*Stating that it's immoral to tax rich people more just because they have more money
Is that really that radical? Consider the inverse. Should take resources away from those who have them?
Again with respect to that first point, if you go back to where I made the comment - I also pointed out that poor in the US are quite wealthy in absolute terms versus those who are poor in absolute terms elsewhere in the world. Should we therefore take resources away from the poor and rich in the US to give to the poorest elsewhere in the world?
It's immoral for the simple reason that it requires coercion to take their resources for spending based on your perceived needs. Further, I think there might be more sympathy to higher taxes if there were a perception that funds as currently taxed are being spent appropriately or efficiently - do you believe that's currently the case?
But back to the original point - is it fair to tax those who contribute most to a given society? These individuals already pay considerably more than most - in fact, if you look at the numbers the top 10% pay for well over half of the overall federal government.
If wealth was obtained simply by taking it from others and transfers I might agree with you - but the reality is that it's created. Shouldn't services be paid for by those who use them? Is it fair that so many don't even contribute in taxes but still consume society's resources?
Just a reminder of a Robert Heinlein quote:
"Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as “bad luck.”"
Incidentally, Google makes a point to counter what you consider radical right - http://thehill.com/blogs/hillicon-valley/technology/196385-google-piracy-bill-a-trial-lawyers-dream
Given that I highly doubt most people would consider Google to be a radical right wing organization, have you considered that you may in fact be radical left?
