Taxation has limits set by social and economic realities, not by decisions of the state. Historically, when it reaches a point at which it controls about two-thirds of economic assets and activity, the people are so deprived of the fruits of their labor they are no longer willing to put up with it. It is then that revolution occurs. Two examples of many are Henry VIII's destruction of the power of the church in England, and the French Revolution.
There's nothing new in the slippery argument that due to one crisis or another, or one compelling need or another, or one noble objective or another, taxpayers should be willing to pay just a little more. We hear it all the time, and we always have. Those little increments of more have stepped us up to a level of taxation that is at its economic maximum. In America, government, including all levels and mandated cost transfers, now controls somewhere between sixty and seventy percent of the economy. We're already at critical mass, or very close.
No, we should not continue to swallow the claim that just a little more will solve our problems. It hasn't, and there is no more to let the state take in its never-ending, futile quest to expand its authority and wealth infinitely, which is what that argument represents. As Thatcher said, the problem with socialists is that eventually they run out of other peoples' money. You've done it. You can't take more because you've already screwed over everyone you can. There's no more to take. Welcome to the real world.
