I hear the reasoning, I don't agree with it

I don't understand why you labeled me as you did, nor do I accept it as anywhere near a true description of myself. I would prefer to stick to discussing the merits of the topic at hand.

"...with extortion...there is no voluntary exchange. The extortionist
might well gain, but the victim’s rights are violated, in that he must
give up something to which he was legally entitled. When someone
extorts money from you with the statement 'your money or your life!'
and you give up the former, you are wronged since you own both."

The issue is not in a percentage, but rather in the principle. Therefore, I won't cheer on someone based simply on his or your opinion of what a fairer system of taxation is.

"The rich man writes the book of laws the poor man must defend, but the highest laws are written on the hearts of honest men."
