After nearly a century of increasingly oppressive and predatory taxation (that is right folks, the Centennial of Woodrow Wilson’s Income Tax arrives in 2013) the great, Dumb American Masses still exhibit confusion about certain basic concepts vis-a-vis taxation, public funding, Sovereign Citizen Rights and Responsibilities.
Basic Confusion Number 1. Corporations DO NOT PAY TAXES. Never have and never will. When a corporation is taxed it merely becomes a glorified money launderer for the Government. Every dime of taxation the Corporation pays comes from the Individual Citizen’s Pocket.
When you, the person, purchase goods or services from a Corporation you pay every dime of the Corporation’s Tax Liability in the form of a higher price for said goods or services. For the Corporation, it is just another form of overhead to be added to the price of every widget sold. Maybe it is time to label Corporate Taxation properly: money laundering for the Government.
Basic Confusion Number 2. There is no such thing as a “Federal Dollar” or “State Dollar” or “Municipal Dollar”. All the “Dollars” are looted directly from your wallet.
So when a politician promises to bring “Federal Highway Funds” to fix the bridge in your neighborhood it is just another tax you can not afford and do not need. In your individual case it might be cheaper and easier to buy a Surplus World War II Bailey Bridge and charge all users a toll to pay off the cost.
But that alternative is verboten by Government Decree.
When a municipality offers affordable housing subsidies to low income renters that is also just another pilfer party assault directly on your wallet. Again, in your individual case it might be cheaper and easier just to help your Church or Civic Organization house said low income renters or even turn low income renters into high income renters, but that alternative is also verboten by Government Decree.
Basic Confusion Number 3. It IS NOT YOUR JOB as a Sovereign Citizen to dutifully acquiesce to EVERY government document and demand of whatever nature.
It is YOUR job to say “this far and no further”.
It is your job to just say NO to increasingly feral Government Demands of any and all types.
So how about it? Are you finally going to burn your 1040 form after years of abuse? Rest assured the Government will have no difficulty burning your mortgage and your 401K and your IRA for the “benefit of the many”.
This is the first election in memory the two major candidates are Tweedledum and Tweedledumber.
Tweedledee is not even seated at the Public Debate Table.
