    That's like beauty. Some people will tell you any tax is over taxation. But that's not what makes it so. We have a system in place. No one is forced to remain a part of it and everyone is subject to its laws.
    This should determine just how brainwashed you are for such a smart guy!

    A flat 5% or lower increase (income) tax is equitable, and not burdensome.
    - All earners in America have an equal responsibility to calculate and render taxes.
    - Minimizes the motivation of others including strangers to encourage tax evasion.
    - Simple to compute; minimizes accounting burden; low cost of implementation to taxpayer.
    - No need for IRS*-like tax collectors. Judges should handle tax evasion as they would any other theft.

    So, to answer you question: at least 95% of it should remain yours, the rest goes to fund the government.

    The correct answer to the question If I earn a dollar, how much of it am I entitled to keep? is all of it.
    If any of my views seem to be strange or new to you, it is to be hoped that you will not close your mind to them, but will emulate the noble Bereans, and not only read and study the chapters would discuss, but will also search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.

    So how do you expect the government to function if it has no income?

    Keep in mind that an income (or increase) tax is the only tax God approves of.

    If any of my views seem to be strange or new to you, it is to be hoped that you will not close your mind to them, but will emulate the noble Bereans, and not only read and study the chapters would discuss, but will also search the Scriptures to see whether these things be so.

    Just because God approves of something, doesn't mean He wanted it in the 1st place.

    Hey, doc, could you come up with just a general way of funding the government if there was no tax?

    How was the government funded prior to 1913? BTW I know the answer.
