There is something so totalitarian and spread around the world that hurts everyone. It is bringing people to ultimate poverty and it isn’t good for anything. What it is? Income tax.
When the United States became independent the founders fought a war. This war was not for freedom. Tax without representation is not fair is the current slogan. But the American people stood up against taxation. They came to the right conclusion: tax is not fair and should be abolished.
If we look at the ongoing history of resistance against taxation than we see that the Americans keep fighting taxation. When taxation on Whisky was introduced the Whisky rebellion started. The direct property tax was also answered with a rebellion.
In the past, the USA funded its small government with tariffs. Which were imposed to protect failing industries? Just as the USA government is now funding itself with tariffs.
People say that paying tax is fair. But it is not. It is a totalitarian system which is just failing to create prosperity.
