The Greatness of America

by Regis Boff

The use of taxes as a hammer with which the poor can both punish the rich and somehow equalize themselves is an illusion that the rich want the poor to have. Taxes can’t hurt the rich unless an attempt is made to guillotine them with a tax code and this is suicidal.

The American system has proven this over and over again with its own immigrants. This is the true greatness of our country.
