YankeeReb: taxes are Marxist.
Not socialism light but Marxism pure and simple. Wasn’t a “progressive income tax” one of Karl Marx’s stated goals along with an estate tax to basically abolish “inherited wealth”. We became an economic power without an income tax or corporate tax. Since 1913 the biggest growth has been in the size of all levels of government.Myrddin: Taxes are Slavery.
The 16th [Amendment] has been abused to the point where we have become slaves to the government. The 16th was ill conceived. There is no limit on how much tax can be imposed, nor does it comply with the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment. It is wrong to lay unequal burdens upon citizens. It is wrong to memorialize a disincentive to success in the Constitution. A progressive tax is a disincentive to succeed.tisket: Taxes are unnecessary.
It did ok for 136 years without an income tax. Money was usually raised through Bond Issues, where it was put to a vote. This however, was not a certain way of getting cash for all their tyrannical schemes fast enough, so in 1912 - wham! - the income tax - pay up bud!citizenredstater9271: taxes are a mind control plot:
Fake conservatives aren’t going to come out in favor of taxation. They realize how evil it is but still think it’s okay for the gov. to take our money b/c of brainwashing.dragnet2: Taxes are rape.
Did you know the federal and state governments just pull their tax schemes and regulations out of thin air?
Why is it Americans are gang raped to pay billions in income tax for border security, while our borders resemble a lawless Boston marathon of millions?
