Seattle progressives want to punish success

The immoral left
Progressives believe in equal outcome. Conservatives believe in equal opportunity. 

Progressives believe if I have ten dollars in my wallet and they only have one dollar in theirs, I somehow screwed them out of their money. If a person is wealthy, progressives see him/her as evil.

But if a person starts off poor, which is a good person to a progressive because the person is somehow a victim of someone rich, but then this person works hard, earns a decent  amount of money and then becomes wealthy, at what point did this person become a 'bad person'?

The Seattle City Council unanimously approved an income tax on their wealth residents Monday--this will be legally challenged before you can say, "Where are your papers, comrade?"

The progressives (aka leftists) are calling for a 2.25 percent tax on total income above $250,000 for individuals and for married couples filing jointly above $500,000.

"Seattle should serve everyone, not just rich folks," Carissa Knipe told the council before the 9-0 vote, saying she makes over $170,000 per year. Lucky for her she isn't affected by the socialistic proposal.

She clearly doesn't understand that she has the absolute right to pay more tax than required, or give money to the less fortunate, as she wants others to do. "I would love to be taxed," the 24-year-old from Ballard lied. The crowd of socialist tax supporters applauded her, none of whom are likely to be directly shelling out any dough.

I'm not a lawyer but this seems unconstitutional. There's the sense of inequality in the eyes of the law. A sense of taxation without representation. A sense of highway robbery--the Robin Hood Syndrome.

The only "fair share" is an equal share--a percentage that everyone pays based on their earnings. What could be more fair than that? But socialists (aka Communists) believe the rich should pay a far greater percentage than they pay, if they pay at all.

They were the kids who took your toys in the sandbox.

Hopefully they will be defeated in court.
