I'm an independent, and in my opinion there should be a SINGLE, FLAT, UNBIASED TAX for everyone. Rich people shouldn't have to pay more taxes than the middle class just because they earned more money than you, and the middle class shouldn't have to pay a higher percentage of taxes than the rich just because the rich get so much tax deductibles for charity donations. Of course, tax deductibles for charity donations are quintessential-without them, charities would suffer greatly-so we would need to figure out how to work that into a flat-tax plan. Either that, or the rich could be given a higher tax percentage, but it would even out with the middle class's after their tax deductibles are calculated into the equation. This is all up for debate and discussion, but one thing is clear: CLASS WARFARE IS NOT THE ANSWER.
