It makes my skin crawl when I here people talk about forcing the wealthy to "pay their fair share." They already pay a higher percentage than me. How is that fair? I'm very far from being wealthy, but it is still disturbing to see the mobs wanting to take from the wealthy. Some of the wealthy earned their money honestly and provide a lot in return.

If you want fairness, fight for a limited government that gives everyone equal treatment, and doesn't distort the free market. If someone gets rich in a free market system on their own merits, then they have earned it fairly and the mobs with pitchforks shouldn't be able to legally take it away.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
