My main point wat that in order to be rich you do not have to be very hardworking or a genius but must be either very lucky or very unscrupulous

The foundation or self-reliance is hard work! One is not rich by how much money he has or how many toys he has, that is physical wealth.

A truly rich person is one who has loved ones and knows how to serve others. We only truly know how to live, if we know how to share our life and our possessions in service to others.

If I'm following this thread right, the Florida tax seems to be a consumption tax (i.e. the wealth man in the example saves most of his money and thereby pays less tax, percentage wise.) Our discussion seems to leave out that those who save, are adding investment funds into the system, which adds to economic growth and helps all of us.

Happy trails.....rclyde
