Taxes : Fair, moral or arbitrary ?

Trump pays no Federal taxes but he claims that it's perfectly legal and blames our outrage on the Tax Code.

Supporters of that unfair state of affairs claim that if taxpayers feels slighted or are unhappy, they just have to petition Congress to change the Law. Is that fair? Fair perhaps, but definitely immoral, unjust and un-Christian. At least that's my opinion.

The example I tend to throw at the hypocrites hiding against our American Tax Code is that it might be a good idea to set up a rule under which anyone could steal – yes, I meant STEAL – up to $20,000 worth of goods and/or services per year, and get Scott-free.

You could steal your neighbor lawn mower, a stranger's motorcycle, skip paying a fat hotel bill or a nice men's suit and still be within your legal limits. If that were the case, mobs would march in the streets in protests, and the law would be repealed sine die.

Isn't it time we did the same with our immoral, unjust and un-Christian entire Tax Code?
