  •  progressive taxation (4+ / 0-)

    is the key to so much --

    No wonder they put it in the Constitution:


    The Constitution of the United States Article 1. -- Section. 8

    The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

    To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;

    To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

    [emphasis added]

    The General Welfare --  providing for the Public Good,

    that's one of those "Progressive Ideals" ...


    What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.
    -- Maslow ...... my list.
