When this country was founded, there was no personal income tax.
Income Tax was defined as taxes paid by those in business...or companies.
The duties of John Hanson a Black Moor, the First President under the Articles Of Confederation, was to go around to the richest business people and ask them to contribute to help pay off our debt for the Revolutionary War.
I'm going by memory here, so if I don't get this exactly right...oh well.
Taxes on the personal level did not exist. This does not mean individuals did not contribute money towards making this a great country. But the money was not confiscated from them by a heavy handed government like we have today. Each man contributed what he thought he could afford.
Take George Washington for instance. George Washington was our First President under The Constitution. When money was needed to build a bridge or something for common good, George Washington would hold a lottery.
Money would be collected by tickets being sold, and when enough tickets had been sold to pay the amount for the lottery winner and the bridge, then a drawing was held.
We have reached a time where our bully government confiscates 40% of our earnings.
What would you call someone who withdraws money from your bank account without your permission?
A "thief' is what I'd call them. This government confiscates about 25% of the 40% right out of my paycheck. I have no say so about it whatsoever.
We have a thieving government that does not care about us. These Politicians only care about their own pocket books...and power.
Every year about this time I get upset and depressed. To see how much of my hard earned wages have been confiscated by this bully government, and it really makes me upset.
And now I just read in the New York Post that our Federal Taxes are set to go up by 30% over the next few years? This is Obama doing this!
Obama talks about raising taxes on the rich...and then quietly sets things in motion to make the working poor and middle class pay 30% more.
It's all so evil...Obama is evil.
The Obama Crime Family is the most corrupt Administration that I've seen in my life.
Vote...VOTE!!! Vote for anyone but King Hussein Obama.
HEY HEY HO HO BARACK OBAMA'S GOT TO GO!
