If Clinton wins, Dilbert Creator Scott Adams would think hard about retiring early and “becoming a user of resources instead of a creator of resources.”

As Adams explains,

My current tax rate is about half of my income when you add up all of the various taxes. I don’t have many deductions. Clinton proposes an estate tax that would take about half of what is left. In effect, Clinton wants my tax rate to be around 75% for every dollar I earn today.

That level of taxation would make me feel like a government employee. The vast majority of my time and energy would go toward making money that politicians would decide how to spend. That doesn’t feel like a rewarding life. If Clinton wins, I would think hard about retiring early and becoming a user of resources instead of a creator of resources. Because I don’t want a government job.

    Wait, what? A reasonable person? Now perhaps, if you could convey that sentiment regarding every aspect of your society and what a lie it is.

    Mind my rhetoric, but what is the idea of survival and progress if it is inevitably, death?

    Personally, I needed a reason that isn’t a lie, a meaning that isn’t a reason why.

      Oh yeah, forgot to mention. Scott Adams is not a particularly reasonable at all, just a sellout.
