Using taxation as a method of increasing economic activity is like pushing a string uphill, and it…

I agree, the Republicans and Democrats both have it wrong. You cannot create the American dream through taxing and entitlements.

Here is a silly analogy:

Assume, we know Squirrels have 220 Trillion nuts squirrelled away for the winter. We know a Squirrel needs 25,000 nuts a year to maintain their weight.

Every time a Squirrel finds a nut, we take the first nut and let them keep the next 9 nuts. So, we are potentially taking away a nut that a hungry Squirrel may immediately need. Furthermore, we do not know or care if the Squirrel owes the Mole 40,000 nuts at 10% interest a year. Squirrel Betty has 500,000 nuts in her home, but Squirrel Tina has no nuts in her home. But that does not matter. Each Squirrel pays 10%. Once a Squirrel gets to 37,500 nuts the rules change and you pay 25% or 1 nut per 4.

What do you think the outcome will be overtime?

This is our tax system.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
