I am often asked by consumers “What is our viewpoint on taxes?”
We live in an incredible country. There are no free rides and if you live in this country, you should participate in paying for the things you use.
Taxes are certainly necessary to pay for roads, bridges and many other things we as consumers use. If your going to use a road or a bridge it is only fair that you help pay for it.
Our country was built upon the right to allow people the freedom to choose.
The problem with the current tax system is that it steals the freedom of choice from consumers by using false & misleading statements which is illegal. Let’s take a closer look.
1. The U.S. tax code is over 3.7 million words. The entire 3.7 million words are all written in fiction to ensure not a single fact exists. Consumers have never been taught to know what a fact looks like. The writing of these 3.7 million plus words was designed to ensure that consumers lost their freedom by creating something so complicated they could never understand. If you do not understand the codes, how can you determine whether your rights are being violated?
Consumers have to pay money out of their own pocket to hire professions who spend years learning and re-learing the tax codes. http://apps.irs.gov/app/picklist/list/formsPublications.html
2. In a free market, people choose where they spend their money. If you want to donate to a particular charity, you should have the right to do so. If you do not agree with a government project, you should not be forced to pay for it. With the current system income tax is taken and the money is used however the government sees fit. Would you rather take the money and spend it how you see fit? Money is a symbol of freedom because money is used as the means to pay for your choices. When money is illegally taken from a consumer through fraudulent grammar, then freedom is lost.
Bob McEwen does an incredible job explaining how freedom works in the following videos. http://theadvocacyforconsumerrights.org/educational-videos/
3. The IRS contains over 95,000 employees who are paid for by consumers. So now a consumer is not only paying people to write the complicated tax codes, they are also paying people to understand the tax codes and paying for 95,000 people to collect the taxes. An entire industry, paid for my consumers, has been created to deal with taxes.
Explaining taxes to kids is always fun. Your kid earns $10. You then go in and take $4 away. Your kid asks why you just took his $4. You answer back that you took the $4 because you want to go buy something at the store for yourself. Your kid then says that is stealing and that if you want $4 then go earn it like he did. Can’t get much simpler than that.
Have you ever wondered why the IRS never signs a tax form? When was the last time the IRS sent you a receipt for your taxes?
Internal Revenue Service
Internal is an adjective used to describe Revenue. “Internal” In = no, ter = terra or earth, nal = contract. “Internal” = no earth contract.
Revenue is an adjective used to describe Service. “Revenue” Re = no, venue = venue. “Revenue” = no venue
Service is a pronoun. “Pronoun” Pro = no, no = no, un = contract. “Pronoun” = no no contract
Internal Revenue Service = A no service with no venue and no earth contract.
In a free economy, a sales tax is all that is necessary. There is no need for 3.7 million words or a staff of 95,000 employees.
If you buy something you will pay taxes on your purchase.
If you want to save your money then you can save your money. If you want to donate you can donate.
Freedom of choice.
“The Tax Code represents the genius of legal fiction… The IRS has never really known why people pay the income tax… The IRS encourages voluntary compliance, through FEAR.”
– Jack Warren Wade Jr., former IRS officer in charge of the IRS Nationwide Revenue Officer Training Program
