The Evil of the Income Tax
Where does one begin to discuss the rampant evil of such a thing? Sadly though I must, as it has become readily apparent that people no longer understand the true danger of such a wrong headed idea.
Many "conservatives" complain about the income tax because they believe it generates to much money for the government to blow. It takes huge sums from the economy and therefore hurts our standard of living.
Others will tell you that the real reason the tax is so evil is that it is theft. It's wealth distribution in its most vile and base form.
Both of these are certainly accurate descriptions of problems with the tax system. They are by no means the worst though.
The real evil of the income tax is the threat it poses to freedom. With an income tax, the government now has a reason to know what you do for a living, where you work, how much you make, how much you spend, and what you spend it on. Who you hire, how much you pay them, how much they work... are all now matters of government interest.
Where we get our money... is now a matter of government scrutiny.
This was the single dumbest thing the people of America could've done. The first person who suggested a federal income tax should've been publicly hung, right then and there, for treason. Such a thing simply gives the government to much power.
Ask yourself this...
If there is a federal sales tax... what business does the government have checking up on deposits of certain sizes? What business is it of the government where you work or how much you make?
None. None, and None.
And that is exactly why the government will never give up the Income Tax. Its the best method available for keeping tabs on the plebians... as well as keeping them in line.
