 Could ignorance be the answer?

taxes

I have no problem paying taxes because I’m an adult and that’s part of the deal.

 

What is really part of the deal is being adult debt-slaves, who are unaware of their servitude, which is only exceeded by being happy debt-slaves.

I have no problem paying taxes because roads don’t pave themselves.

Few Americans understand a simple fact: annually, taxpaying Americans pay hundreds of billions of dollars more than is required to keep all our roads paved and in good shape.

Still, however, we have deteriorating roads from one end of our country to the other. In fact, the US infrastructure is failing in every state of our union.

About one-third of our roads are in sub-standard condition.

We even have 4,095 dams that are at risk of failing.





In fact, many of our harbors, rail lines, bridges, sewers, buildings, electrical grids, atomic power plants, and water treatment facilities, are falling apart with hundreds of billions of dollars in deferred maintenance.

The World Economic Forum ranks the US infrastructure as 23rd amongst all nations.

All of this decay is occurring in spite of confiscatory taxes on individual hard-working American citizens.

Nevertheless, there seems to be no limit to the amount of money our government will spend on destroying the infrastructures of Middle Eastern nations.

War isn’t free. Pay your taxes tea baggers.

No, war is not free. Its costs, however, far exceed its financial drain on our US economy in terms of its lost of life, its destruction of infrastructures, and the poisoning of the world’s environment.

If it is taxes that make such atrocities possible, how can anyone hold up signs advocating them?

Could ignorance be the answer?

 

Author Details
J. (Jack) Speer-Williams: 

Jack is a former Hollywood producer of live stage shows that featured various movie and TV stars. In Los Angeles for almost a quarter of a century, Jack had a front-row seat in observing the disintegration of the foundations of America society before he retreated to the woods of New Hampshire. 

 A graduate of the University of Florida, where he studied economics, Jack was also a running back on the Gator scout team, a member of the ATO social fraternity, Cadet Commander of the school’s ROTC unit and president of the military honorary society, Scabbard and Blade. 

After serving honorably in the US Army, where Jack earned his paratrooper wings, he began to see the folly and crimes attendant to the unilateral wars of American aggression. It was then that Jack embarked on a spiritual path ” one he has walked for over 40 years. 

Content with his sylvan seclusion, Jack, experienced in “show business,” began writing of how to spot media propaganda, something he meant to be his legacy to his three grown children. Today, however, Jack invites all others to read his non-partisan observations of national and international events. 

According to Jack, “Those of us stuck deeply into the engineered left/right paradigm have no desire to be objective, and are thus blinded to all truth that does not reinforce biased opinions. Remedial work in geo-politics will not open the minds of such people, as they are badly in need of spiritual remedies; nevertheless, facts are facts, and some are available to truth-seekers, the subject matter of my writings.”
