Imagine you’re given the special opportunity to name your own tax rate…
- The tax rate would only apply to you, and would be good forever.
- You’re free to keep as much of your income as you’d like, and spend it on whatever you choose.
- No one else would know what you chose to pay, unless you told them.
What would your custom rate be?

Now that you’ve chosen what YOUR rate should be, you also get to decide whether EVERYONE ELSE should get the same deal.
So, does everyone else get to decide what level of taxes they pay? If you chose a number like zero or close to it for yourself, does the same go for everyone else? Or, do you feel that you should get to have this right, but are not willing to extend it to others?
If you are willing to extend this right to others, this means you’re not willing to use government force to benefit yourself while burdening others. If everyone is free to spend their money as they see fit, there is no longer any need for government to take it and spend it for them.
If however you are unwilling to allow others the same courtesy as you received, you’re taking a hypocritical position while advocating that others suffer burdens from which you yourself should be exempt. This is the very nature of government abuse.
