Liberty is not a means to a political end. It is itself the highest political end.
- Lord Acton

The ideal Government of all reflective men, from Aristotle onward, is one which lets the individual alone one which barely escapes being no government at all.
- H.L. Mencken

A rich or middle class person do not eat more than the lower classes, nor do they necessarily own a lot more stuff, as there is a reason they're rich.

And that would be relevant if food was the only thing taxed. I am not sure if it's taxed at all.

Goods are taxed. Of which the wealthy buy more of.

Rich people have very low propensities to consume. That's why we tax based on income, not consumption: a true "fairtax" would be a flat income tax. Consumption taxes are regressive because they take larger bites of poorer incomes. Say you have a marginal propensity to consume of 0.9 and earn $20k a year, comparing this Situation A with Situation B where you have a MPC of 0.5 and earn $100k. With a 10% consumption tax, that's an effective 9% tax on income for Situation A, and an effective 5% tax on income for Situation B.

I agree. But the comment I responded to claimed the rich and poor are taxed the same in actual dollars. Which is not correct.

In you example the tax payments were $1,800 and $5,000 respectively.

$1,800 < $5,000.

A homeless man's $1 and a millionaire's $1 are two different ways to look at the same thing. Here we see a disproportionate number of $1 bills taken from people to whom it is worth more, to whom every cent counts, instead of from those who do not have the need to pick up a $20 note they dropped on the floor, because by the time they realise it they'd have already made that amount back. In real terms, obviously, you're right, but a 0.0021% tax on billionaires yields the same conclusion as an 80% tax on those making $25,000.

And yet it hit one person harder than another, with different effective tax rates. Something that hits various people differently should not be defined as fair anyway.

There is only one fair tax.

I hope I do not have to elaborate, at least to you.

Hah! Yes, definitively not.
