I wold like to thank my opponent for starting this debate, I hope it will be effective and informative. Now I would like to first get some things cleared up. My opponent states that we should tax the rich, he proposes no method of doing so, or what amount. Secondly, he uses very vague language when discussing the "rich fat cats." For reference this [1] is a rich person. His claim "all the rich pepl nd give the $$ to the poor." Which I am assuming roughly translates to, "the rich's taxes should be re-distributed to the poor." I think that this would not be a good idea because America is based in the doctrine of Capitalism. Capitalism is defined as, "An economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit." [2]
Americans have the right to make money. Without companies being able to compete there would be no reason to improve products. Why should I try to make my product better and make more money if the government will just take the extra money I make from producing a better product. Without competition, there is no incentive to work harder.
I am interested in what my opponent will say back and await it eagerly.
