Very well said I am also in the top 2% and they have no right to steal my money through both income tax and estate tax.
While I concur with your theft philosophy, keep in mind that they’re not taxing your money; only your currency. That little piece of paper that says $100, isn’t backed by anything other than an increasingly shaky confidence that it will be honored as “money”. You could wake up one morning to find out that it’s lost 30-40% of its value. Hopefully you’re heavily invested in gold..in your personal safe, guarded appropriately.
I call it institutionalized theft.
In the mail the other day, I got a request from some group, for a donation.
My answer to them (in their own postage envelope):
“America elected a President who said that I am rich and that I am NOT paying my share.
He will hire people to take my money from me FOR you.
If you need help, contact the people the President has hired to take money from me, on YOUR BEHALF!
I’ll be responding like this for the next four years.
