If I asked you what Donald Trump and Bono have in common, the easy and accurate answer is that they both have lots of money.
After all, it seems like a rock star and a real-estate tycoon are about as different as two people could possibly be.
Yet the answer should be obvious.
I’ll give you a big hint. You probably have the same perspective as well.
At least if you answer “no” to the first question and “yes” to the second question.
- Do you ever voluntarily pay extra tax?
- Or do you, like John Kerry or Bill and Hillary Clinton, take prudent steps to minimize the amount of your income confiscated by government?
In other words, the perspective shared by Donald Trump and Bono is one that is widely held by every sensible person. Simply stated, your income belongs in your pocket, not in the grasping hands of politicians.
