According to my tax bracket, almost 6 months of the year, HALF THE YEAR, I have to get out of bed and go to work for the government. Almost 50% of everything I earn goes to the federal and state government and thats not even the highest bracket. Oh, and then you can add to that property taxes for the county and sales taxes and taxes on my investments and a death tax when I die…whew!In my perfect America I can keep more of what I earn. I’ll pay maybe 25% to live in this great country but I should be able to spend the rest according to how I want. There will be sales taxes, so the government will still get plenty of cash. And there will be corporate gains taxes, etc.
