So all laws are infallible?
Just the law. If real, grown-up people who work and vote thought that way they'd vote for some whacky libertarian party. But we don't.
many of these taxpayers could most likely go into poverty themselves with these policies?
Have you met many people who've "gone into poverty" because of paying tax? It hasn't happened in your lifetime. Tax rates are a percentage of income calculated on the basis of a combination of public need and the amount the taxpayer can afford.
Is that really fair to other taxpayers?
The children? Aren't they entitled to the best start in life that society can provide? Regardless of their parents' shortcomings.
Since you care about feckless and indolent parents a lot, why don't you lend them your house or something? That's what they really need. Its not enough just helping them with some modest contributions here and there.
Well, I pay tax at the highest rate! More than just "modest contributions", isn't it...
Do you mean a smart guy like yourself who has supposedly been successful in business can't figure that out?
Not supposedly! And as usual, you've failed to understand a simple point:
You make future policies that give these people incentives to work and provide for themselves
Not "you" but the government makes "future policies". Every government for many years has made "future policies". I've never seen a government of any party or in any of the countries I've lived in who have said otherwise. And none of those "future policies" has been especially successful. Except perhaps in your fantasy world...
no longer feckless and indolent when they know a check won't be coming to them
Go to the third world and say that. Or parts of north and east Poland for that matter. But you've never been to Poland, have you?
When you give free money to someone, it saps them of their desire to work hard or think outside of the box to produce something.
Maybe some sort of source for that. No, I didn't think so. :-)
Wasn't your success running your businesses prompted by tapping your inner work ethic and desire?
No. It was all about money and the opportunity to make it.
Not very bright, are you?
