I read your whole OP, and it's well thought out. It articulates the liberal position on those issues, especially #1. But, and it's been adressed by others already, there is zero effect on you regarding how much the "rich" get taxed. The problem, IMO, is this perception that the government is the only way problems are solved (regardless of the FACT that the government causes more problems than it solves) and therefore they need tons of money to make everything alright. They already tax the piss out of the "rich", the ones who invest and create wealth and jobs in this country. It's like you think that rich people are just born that way or that at some point they become evil or uncaring once they reach a certain income level, an arbitrary number arrived at by some weird accounting system that makes no sense.

When half of the country pays 0 income tax, and 25 percent pays most of the tax, how is that possibly fair? How many rich people contribute large amounts of their money to charity? How many invest in businesses and create jobs?

Way more than the ones who don't pay a dime in taxes, I can tell you that.
