Eat the rich

So there's this poll asking if you think it's immoral for the super-rich to avoid paying taxes. After I filled it out, I commented:

It is most definetely immoral to not pay taxes if you're rich enough to afford to do so. The rich should be required to pay taxes.

I'm of the opinion that there should be a new law: any rich son of a bitch who tries to renounce their citizenship, or has offshore accounts for tax evasion purposes, would - under the new law - get any and all assets still in the US siezed by the IRS. So their choices would be:

1. Be rich, with ALL your liquid assets held in this country (you can still own property elsewhere, or do business in other countries, if the other countries let you), and pay taxes like you're supposed to.

2. Be rich and leave the country, never to do business or own property in the USA again, because if you do, the IRS will seize everything in the US that you own to pay for the taxes you decided not to pay.

Not going to happen, sadly. Tax laws are made by a group of Rich people at the request of rich people.

That's not how it *should* be. The People are supposed to decide these things. *le sigh*
