Why should anybody pay $5,000,000 in taxes? If we are the land where all are created equal, then shouldn’t all be taxed equal? Wesley Snipes is a victim of Statism gone awry; as if the state is the rightful owner of the fruits of Wesley Snipe’s labor.
If we are all to be treated equally, then why should Wesley Snipes pay $5,000,000 in taxes and you shouldn’t? The fact that he should afford it shouldn’t have anything to do with it. Just as people aren’t charged $10 for a loaf of bread or $100 for a gallon of milk just because they can “afford it.”
Where is the $5,000,000 Wesley Snipes paid going to go? Most of it will stay in Washington mired in the system of bureaucracy we have been funding. These agencies have falsely been under the guise of “helping the people.”
The crime isn’t that Wesley Snipes failed to pay $5 million in taxes. The crime is that Washington has failed to justify a $3.1 trillion budget.
