Taxing Us to Death; Government's Main Job
Jim Quinn

(Editor's Note: Inflation is theft. A little inflation is a little theft, and a lot of inflation is a lot of theft. There is nothing natural about inflation. The Federal Reserve is the only cause of inflation in the U.S.A., and a major cause of inflation throughout the world. Everyone involved with the Federal Reserve are thieves. The IRS is the collection agency for the Federal Reserve. They, too, are thieves. Not one in a hundred working there realizes it. But that hardly matters. We are talking about thousands upon thousands of thieves. No wonder we are in such a mess. The IRS was created in 1913, to function as the collection agency (read in "muscle") for the Fed. Picture the enforcers, Guido, Bubba & Fats. You know; "pay up or we will beat the hell out of you with baseball bats. Legislated thugs. - JSB) 

I had this exact discussion at a family graduation party on Saturday. My brother-in-law and I were talking about all the woke bullshit they have been jamming down our throats and we eventually got around to taxes. I then launched into a tirade against taxes and the government that enforces them at the point of a gun. 

I told him everyone kept 100% of their earnings up until 1913 and the country had been able to grow and prosper up until that time without an income tax. He then said what the regime media and the government has drilled into the minds of the masses – “but who would build and maintain the roads and infrastructure of the country?”. Based on what I observe, they’ve done a piss poor job of that. Without an income tax, they wouldn’t be able to wage endless wars or make welfare promises they can’t keep. It would make the government toothless – which is exactly what they should be.

Then I launched into how they tax our income, then with the pittance left over, they inflict us with sales tax, gasoline tax, property tax, utility taxes, hotel taxes, garbage taxes, the most insidious tax ever created, the inflation tax, as well as a myriad of other taxes and fees. We are taxed to death, with zero benefit to us. And now for the coup de grace they will roll-out climate change taxes. By the end of my tirade I think my brother-in-law was firmly on my side and less trusting in his government.
