How Can You Make A Moral Argument For Theft

The honest answer is that you can't. We see this talking point more and more these days, politicians and especially the left are forever telling us what is and is not morally correct. They seem to have become the modern day moral bastions of morality and all things holy, well except when it comes to killing babies, even after they are born these days, but that a topic for another day. They have now declared that anyone who is wealthy is by default immoral, and because of this immorality, it is not at all immoral to take what they have by force.

So here's the question, at what point does wealth become immoral? Where do you draw the line, is it at one hundred thousand dollars, a million or at one hundred million, and then, who gets to decide? How does is work, even if theft is morally wrong, when the majority mob wants it, then it is allowed? Try applying that logic to rape, because that is exactly how crazy a proposal it is.

"The real goal should be reduced government spending, rather than balanced budgets achieved by ever rising tax rates to cover ever rising spending." - Thomas Sowell

"We have the right as individuals to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to appropriate a dollar of the public money." - Davy Crockett

The biggest problem was face as a society across the world, is that we have politicians who will say anything for the sake of power. They are not at all interested in doing what is right, just, or follow their constitutions or the laws of their countries. They appeal to the masses with promises of free stuff and hand outs in exchange for a vote, no consideration or even understanding the perils of pushing ideologies like equality of outcome, or historically genocidal ideas of socialism.

Just because someone has made lots of money, does not mean he stole it from others, and just because someone has more than you, does not make it just that we can all agree to take from them because they have more. Just because you can vote for something, does not make it moral or just.

Well. Taking on AOC is pretty low hanging fruit. She's such a bozo.

You and I are in almost lock step on taxation. I firmly believe that taxation is necessary in any society. I do believe it should be a flat rate so that everybody, I mean everybody pays the same rate. You make more money, you pay more. No deductions, no exceptions.

It's a little bit like "The Mexicans will pay for this wall". It's political bullshit.
