Taxation is theft…

Every patriotic American knows that. Being FORCED to give up your money is a lot different than handing it over voluntarily or philanthropically (“The Lord loves a cheerful giver!”) – and while the government isn’t ACTUALLY holding a gun to you and telling you to “pay up, sucker”, they’re technically allowed to do that—people have been arrested and done hard time in prison for failure to pay them their tribute.

However…

We do get something for our money. We get security and safety, we get smooth roads and stable bridges, our children get to go to school, and we get our trash picked up…

The truth is that it’s not TRULY theft, but rather a forced exchanging of money for services.

Regardless, that’s not total freedom… but it’s as close as we’re going to get.

Of course, we could talk about a flat tax system till we’re blue in the face – that would probably make things a LOT easier…

Or, imagine if the government let us allocate our taxes to whichever program we chose? “Mr. Robertson, for the last six years in a row, you’ve given 100% to “National Defense” – are you sure there’s not another program you’d like to help?” …

“No…”

But we don’t have that choice…

We just have to hand it over and let them put it where they want.

Where Liberals And Conservatives DIVERGE On Prosperity

That being said…

Ideologically speaking, there’s a HUGE difference between conservatives and liberals when it comes to taxes…

Liberals seem to believe that you can tax a nation into prosperity…

Conservatives don’t.

This fact is taking center stage with the insane amount of Democrats and socialists vying for the DNC presidential nomination, as many of them are keep talking about an unprecedented number of free services…

Free college, free health care…

Free, free, free.

Of course, the cost of these “free” services comes in the form of taxes – and have all admitted or even bragged about the fact that in order to get these services, taxes will have to be raised.

Now, they try to get people to believe that they’ll only be raising taxes on the rich and Wall Street…

But if you believe that they won’t jack them up on everybody else too, you’re absolutely crazy or just plain naïve.

They love to talk about raising taxes so everybody pays their “fair share” …

Yet, when their tax records are released, it’s clear that these politicians only pay the minimum amount. They use tax loopholes and rules to pay JUST what they owe – but never more than that.

Why Won’t These Hypocrites Give MORE?

Even though there’s always the option to pay more…

Even though they could each donate to help pay down the national debt – none choose to.

NONE of the candidates have paid more than they’re told – even though there’s a line on tax forms that allow you to voluntarily pay MORE than you’re required, they choose not to.

They want you to pay more…

Even though they refuse to.

By the way, it’s not just Americans that refuse to pay more…

Norway—you know, one of those “socialist” countries that Libs love to point to as one of the shining examples of how America should be—instituted it a while ago. While they’d like to make you believe people in these countries LOVE paying taxes…

They’re wrong.

From a Bloomberg article, “Eager to pay more taxes? Then look no further than Norway. …Launched in June, the initiative has received a lukewarm reception, with the equivalent of just $1,325 in extra revenue being collected so far, according to the Finance Ministry. That’s not much for a country of 5.3 million people… ‘The tax scheme was set up to allow those who want to pay more taxes to do so in a simple and straightforward way,’ Finance Minister Siv Jensen said in an emailed comment. ‘If anyone thinks the tax level is too low, they now have the chance to pay more.’ …Jonas Gahr Store, the wealthy Labor Party contender…, has so far refused to take up the government’s offer.”

Do you see how it works?

Politicians and the elite want you to pay more – but, when given the chance, refuse to do so themselves.

It’s a scam…

Just like everything else that comes out of the Leftist think-tank.

They have one goal – to get as much money and power as possible…

Everything else is an EMPTY shell of a lie.

Believe that.
