Stick ’em Up! Taxation – Legalized Government Theft

You know, our tax situation is ridiculous! Legalized Government Theft! I couldn’t understand it before – and now Obama and the Dem Congress has added even more incomprehensible complexity via Obamacare. The fact is there are 71,000 pages of federal tax law.

Something must be done to end this abuse of government and political power. We have a runaway government – a runaway administration – a runaway congress – a runaway IRS – and no one is curbing it. This is irresponsible!

Government is taking working people’s money – other people’s property – and giving it to those who don’t work – to enhance its political power and perks. What in heaven’s name is wrong with the American people – putting up with this kind of abuse. Government has become little more than a legalized criminal enterprise – and it’s growing, growing, growing every year.

Obama promised to make things better. All he has done is make things worse. He has moved us in the direction of Fabian Socialism – a form of de facto Communism.

Frankly, it’s time for a tax revolt. Americans should force the government to cut this nonsense. The growth of government and taxation must stop.  They are destroying the American-Way, the American Prosperity Machine** that has given our nation the highest standard of living in history.

Liberal-Leftists (Democrats) simply don’t get it: When government taxes workers – and pays non-workers – we get more non-workers. We now have twenty two million unemployed  and underemployed workers. Government Policy Should Make the Poor, Rich – Not the Rich, Poor! The prosperity of any nation is the result of its collective productivity – less the cost of government and nonproductive entitlements – as measured in non-inflated (constant) dollars.

**The American-Way ― The American Prosperity Machine: Traditional Judeo/Christian principles and values . . . the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness . . . freedom of speech, action, religion and family governance . . .  an educated and informed society . . . freedom from gender and racial discrimination . . . affordable healthcare . . . the rule of Constitutional Law . . . honest elections and presidential leadership . . . patriotic, truthful, checks-&-balances, limited government  . . .  a strong military . . . the right of citizens to own and bear arms . . . secure borders . . . free, competitive markets and institutions . . . properly-regulated, free-enterprise . . . balanced trade . . . private property rights . . . low cost, domestically supplied energy and natural resources . . .  individual responsibility . . . controlled immigration . . . entrepreneurialism . . . a strong work ethic . . . full employment . . . fair pay . . . appropriate safety nets . . . low taxes . . . a strong, reliable currency . . . financial availability, mobility, and responsibility (balanced budget, minimal debt) . . .
