should we be taxing earnings...or should we be taxing wealth?

maybe I'm wrong but I think we are going about taxation all wrong.Instead of taxing earnings I think we should be taxing wealth.
Excluding your primary residence I think we should have a 12 or 15 percent tax on wealth.

Making 10 bucks an hour and working at wallyworld living paycheck to paycheck? your total federal tax for the year would be about 1,600 before exemptions...basically giving you a tax bill of zero after exemptions

You're Bill Fucking Gates and you're worth 50 billion dollars?...your first year tax bill would be 7.5 billion dollars....before personal exemptions of course
