Seattle Plans to Rob from the Rich… Again


Taxation is theft if the money confiscated is used in a redistributive way. It is immoral to vote for politicians who promise to tax some people so the money can go to other people.

Why is it OK for elected officials to take money from some people so it can be given to other people? Where is the morality in this type of thinking? But this is exactly what a bunch of people in Seattle, WA, want the City Council to do.

“An overwhelming number of people spoke in support of a citywide income tax in Seattle on Wednesday at City Hall.

“People in support of taxing the richest residents cited everything from ‘simple justice,’ to the untapped pool of money that could be used to deal with pressing problems like homelessness and drug abuse.”

If people want to donate their money to help the homeless and drug abusers, they are free to do so. If these “simple justice” advocates want to appeal to the folks at Starbucks and Microsoft, companies that are worth billions of dollars, to donate money to help, they are free to do so.
