I do not believe in punishing success.” Goldwater added, “The graduated tax is a confiscatory tax. Its effect, and to a large extent its aim, is to bring down all men to a common level.”

In Liberty and Tyranny, Mark Levin recalls a fantastic quote by Ronald Reagan: “Since when do we in America believe that our society is made up of two diametrically opposed classes—one rich, one poor—both in a permanent state of conflict and neither able to get ahead except at the expense of the other? Since when do we in America accept this alien and discredited theory of social and class warfare?”

America should be a paragon of equal opportunity, not a place where the hefty hand of government robs the fruits of one person’s labor to give to another.

The debate over whether or not to extend the Bush tax cuts for all has been the latest hot topic. But the bigger issue, one we must press our elected representatives to address, is that of bringing true justice to the American tax system.
