So, I've been talking to some of my rather liberal friends lately, and their statements had me trying hard not to laugh in their faces.
They're completely against any kind of discrimination when it comes to race, upbringing, country of origin, etc... yet completely okay with discrimination by income. If discrimination is such a bad thing, why are we all not paying the exact same percentage (or even better, the exact same dollar amount) in taxes every year? Why are some people taxed far more (even after tax writeoffs) of a percentage of their yearly income than the rest of us, and why is that perfectly okay? It's still discrimination, and you're either for it, against it... or you're a hypocrite.
