@Tom 13 - Re: You are mistaking the *absolute*
Ah, the classic "I'm alright Jack" argument...
Let me put it another way. Imagine we all had to move a pile of bricks from one place to another by hand. Now imagine that I am six feet tall, well muscled, regularly go to the gym, am well fed etc whereas you are 5 feet tall, not in the best of health and poorly nourished.
Which is better: For the stronger person to carry more bricks or for him to say "No, since you can only carry two bricks, it's fair and just for me to only carry two bricks as well"? Should the burden be placed on those best capable of carrying it or distributed equally so that the stronger and the weaker carry the same amount?
(There's a certain irony that many on the Right Wing of politics are fundamentally opposed to equality, apart from when it benefits them...)
PS And I think you need to look up what a Straw Man argument is, because that other post was certainly not one.
