specific questions and chose instead to bring up the rotten herring of Tax Policy. But Tax Policy includes Inheritance Taxes which you oppose and a Tax System which would benefit the less well off by reducing their tax burden and passing it up the line to those who have been prospering while everybody else has been losing since the early 80's, which you would likely call Income Redistribution and oppose.
I would also suggest that there be a tax on importation by American companies of goods made in other countries for them to sell in the US. Like Nike does and all the other American companies who have moved their production facilities to cheaper labour markets and less stringent protection for workers and lower Environmental regulations. By depleting the demand side of the job market Corporations have put massive downward pressure on wages and job availability in the US. There has to be a countervailing tax policy to redress this imbalance, not least because it has also reduced the Corporate Tax portion of government revenues.
Oh, and there's precisely that fairness argument made in Leviticus as well, as a good Christian boy like you should know. There is a chapter about dealing fairly with others of your tribe (i.e country) and not cheating them or paying them low wages. Or don't you read that part of the Bible? I've noticed a lot of New Evangelicals neglect the Old Testament, whereas real original Evangelicals like John Wesley and Methodists and the Anabaptists (Baptists to Americans) embraced it in the early days of Evangelism and right up until the 1960's. In fact it wasn't until the 70's and the new crop of Conservative Evangelists came along that the Old Testament was chucked away as sort of "foreign" (meaning too Semitic). Of course nobody said that very loudly, they just belittled it and shuffled it off to the side and made up a lot of unfounded (in the Bible) teaching to replace it.
There was an old saying that "A Christian is a man who prays on his knees on Sunday, and preys on his neigbours the other 6 days of the week." It was an Evangelical putdown of the Roman Catholic Church. And if you know the history of Chicago, or Kansas City, or New York or any number of other cities run by the Irish mafia, was a deserved putdown.
Rob, raise a good Presbyterian/Episcopalian, despite my mother's latent Methodism, which fit well with Presbyterianism. Episcopalian was my choice when I was in the 6th grade.
