The real deal is you are a dolt, who probably does not have a clue about where and how the bulk of the money you pay in taxes is spent, nor how those taxes cripple our economy.
I HAVE NO PROBLEM PAYING TAXES – 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 creaking 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.
Many of our freeways, harbors, transit systems, bridges, rail lines, buildings, sewers, electrical grids, atomic power plants, and water treatment facilities are falling apart, with hundreds of billions of dollars of long deferred maintenance.
The World Economic Forum ranks America’s infrastructure as twenty-third amongst all nations.
All 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, TEABAGGERS!
No, war is not free. Its costs, however, far exceed its financial drain on our US economy. Because of its loss of life, its destruction of infrastructures, its foul poisoning of the world’s environment, and the rabid enemies we are making around the world, wars have costs far beyond what is easily imaginable.
For every so-called terrorist we kill with a drone, we create thousands of new enemies. For every mother and child we burn to death with our bombs, we create many more of new enemies, all with a growing hatred of us and our constant war on humanity.
Meanwhile, back in America where our public resources are still being squandered in perpetual wars on defenseless nations, the nescient of our country continue buying the big lie: We have to make enemies around the world in order to maintain our nation’s security.
This broadly promoted conventional narrative is imposed on us from the Democrats (promoters of high taxes, sodomy, and baby killings) and the Republicans (defenders of fractional reserve lending, usury, and compound interest), thus we are prevented a clear view of the reality that could end the madness.
Why have Americans allowed taxes on their income, while at the same time acquiesced to their government’s deficient spending? Any people that would allow that has long lost their ability to ensure a prosperous society.
Additionally, there are sales, property, estate, gift, pet, vehicle, telephone, food, drink, inheritance, marriage, utility taxes, and about thirty-five more.
The highest tax of all, however, is inflation which is caused by “our” irresponsible government’s deficient spending – primarily for wars.
Inflation, which will only get worse, has brought down the buying power of the 1913 dollar to three pennies.
No longer can young couples do what my aunt and uncle did: they bought a beautiful, spacious two-story home within walking distance of a church, a theater, two drug stores, a grocery-deli market, a library, and a high school, for $6,500. And, they could walk to these conveniences with without any fear of the street crimes “our” government’s inflation and taxes have helped to bring into existence.
Yes, wage earners are paid more today than they were prior to 1913, when there were no income taxes at all; but much of that great difference is lost with a communist plank in the US Tax Code: the Progressive Income Tax – which allows the government to tax us at a higher rate the more income we earn.
And then, of course, the rest of today’s increased wages are dwarfed by the government’s continual generation of inflation.
Why have Americans allowed “their” government to steal so much money from them, which has been used to destroy so much life, liberty, and happiness, not only in our country, but across the world?
Could ignorance be the answer? If so, how ignorant are the ignorant?
