I'm not sure about 70% but taxes definetely should be raised on the rich, Progressive taxation is the only moral way to go. If you have a lot it is your duty your moral obligation to share i remember learning that in kindergarden and sunday school, If you are lucky enough to be rich and don't give me this crap about how hard you woked because i have been around wealthy people all my life and poor people too, The very rich and very poor are lazy and indolent but the working poor work very hard the middle class works hard, The upper classes, They got lucky thats all, No one deserves to be rich if some are poor

It appears that you have something against rich people. Rich people may have gotten rich by luck but some, Also more commonly done, Via hard work. Thousands of hours in a room working hard on a product which then finally gets its big break.

It is nobodies moral duty to "share" what they have. If you earn something, It's yours. You may choose to give, Spend or keep.

To put it in simple words, If you were to earn lots of money via hard work, How would you feel to have a large portion snatched away for simply the reason of you earning it. I recommend researching anarcho capitalism, It'd be beneficial to you :>

Americans suffer from a disease, Greed is a sin a disease, You do have a duy to share, And human nature can and will be changed If you see someone with more than they deserve it should make you angry, Especially if they have more than you do and you don't have anything, How is that fair? Even the bible tells you to share.
