"Absolute -------- and a complete denial that our economy is primarily a service economy."
It's statements like this that leave no doubt that you've never set foot in an economics class. This is pretty much day-one ----.
"Then try to tax an acre in Montana that is producing nothing. Land does not earn anything without workers, thus all real income comes from labor. Yes, you can make money in the stock market, etc. but you cannot create real income without labor because Labor is the real origination of all wealth."
That's basically what Marx said too, about 180 years ago. Of course Marxism has not been part of contemporary economics programs for decades. You might still find his preachings taught in a philosophy department once in while.
The fact is that, as a wealth generator, an acre of farm land is as valueless as a farmer without a plot to farm. Neither will be doing much of anything. Just like a machine that makes widgets will generate no wealth through the production of wigets without first having an operator to run the machine and precursor materials to turn into widgets.
Again, this is ECON 101 stuff. You would know this had you ever bothered to take the class. Although I can see how it could cause conflict with your chosen faith.
