Why Do We Pay Income Taxes?
First...it is clear why we paid income taxes in the past.....so our government could be funded to perform the functions that were better served by the collective resources of the nation.....like defense, law, etc....
That makes sense....and the process worked great for a few hundred years.
HOWEVER, today....about one out of every two dollars the FEDERAL government spends is borrowed.....and not just any amount.......the highest spending in American government history.......WHILE at the same time, much of the rest of the nation is being cut off of credit.
Basically, politicians are borrowing massive amounts of money simply to pay their personal very generous salaries and benefits packages. They are borrowing money so their families can take lavish vacations. They are borrowing money so their friends companies can get favored government loans.
If politicians can borrow money to pay their own salaries, and fund their families vacations....why can't citizens? Wasn't the premise of the creation of America....."ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL?"
It has become very clear, that in the last few years, (AND PRIOR TO OBAMA'S ELECTION) the taxes we pay is no longer a constraint on the spending of government, like it was for the past over 200 years.....much of government's spending is simply BORROWING AND SPENDING massive amounts of money in quantities never seen before in American history
And if that is the case, where government can simply borrow any amount it wants and spend, why do we pay taxes at all? Why can't we borrow money from government to pay taxes....after all, politicians borrow money to pay their own salaries and thus borrow to pay their income taxes....why can't all citizens do the same.....wouldn't that be fair?.
Why should a private American citizen suffer because he can't borrow money but a public politician have access to all the money in the world......and even money that doesn't even exist? It seems insane that a rational society would pay taxes to a government that simply prints money to pay its politicians salaries AND taxes yet cuts off the private sector from that same money?
Is this the America our forefathers founded? Is this the liberty our prior generations died defending?
I am confident a light will turn on one day... and the collective population will figure out the injustice of this insane behavior and assault against the principals from which our nation was founded......the only question now is when....and what will trigger the event......
8.9.10....it is only a qustion of when.
