@Scard. You cannot draw a parallel like that between real life and a video game.I've lived on both sides of the line. At one point, I was so far below the poverty line, that I had to supplement my diet with stuff I pulled out of trash cans at local fast food joints, so that I could stave my hunger.You have no comprehension of what it is like to be poor (or what it truly means to be rich) until you've been homeless.I have clawed my way out; through my own hard work and determination, to a place where I do in fact now pay taxes. In fact, I dare say a ridiculously large portion of my current income goes to taxes; it's hard to call it anything other than what it is.But I am under NO delusion that the people who currently are in the situation that I used to be, deserve to be burdened by the same tax load that I am now.Whether or not YOU want to acknowledge it; there is a baseline amount of money needed to feed, clothe, and shelter yourself and your family. That amount of money, in my humble opinion, should never be counted as part of your taxable income; no matter how much (or how little) money you make.FAIR TAX 2012
