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.

It was clear to Alstry years ago, that once we cut off credit to the private economy...our private economy would collapse and the America as we knew it was over.....

What completely took me by surprise was the fact that so many remained silent as our and our fellow citizens personal liberties and property rights were stripped right before our eyes.......and it appears that many still havn't figured it out yet.

However, more and more are waking up.....and as more and more see it....the politicians will have to make a very difficult choice.....confront their very angry citizens about what transpired and what they engineered with their fellow banker buddies.....

 The California city of Bell says seven more city workers received high salaries, with two making more than $400,000 per year and three making more than $200,000.

Interim City Manager Pedro Carrillo announced the salaries at a news conference Friday and vowed reforms for the blue-collar Los Angeles suburb of about 37,000 residents. He says the city will begin a study to ensure salaries are commensurate with experience.

Several activists disrupted the news conference, furious over the new revelations.

or start a war against an EXTERNAL enemy to distract the population from what could amount the the greatest crime in World history?
