Income Tax - Shattering the Myths



Happy THEFT DAY to everyone out there!
That book is fantastic.

You obviously don't know how the free market works.

*Looks at this discussion, and is STILL baffled at how gullible the right-fringe is, to ONLY focus on the negatives of Gov't, without realizing how much better off we all are.
Who's "right-fringe?" It certainly isn't me.

^Wasn't it you (or another poster with your same views?) who said something about how the Democratic party has set us back 100 years? Yeah, it sounds good, but think about how IGNORANT that statement really is. Compare us to 1919, and tell me about how much more advanced and productive we were as a society then, versus now. Tell me about how we could feed 8 billion people on earth with 1919 farming technology. Tell me about how we could get food to market on the roads then (or the private roads you advocate for now) and still keep prices as low as they are.
I don't believe in political parties, so it wasn't I who said that.

The free market is the REASON why the poverty rate is minuscule compared to 100 years ago--not governments.

There is a LOT of bad with Gov't, and a lot of waste, and corruption, but my goodness, you Kool-aid drinkers are the biggest threat to life as we know it. And no, that is NOT an exageration.
ALL government is evil.

In the 20th century alone governments murdered over 200 million people.

Because Trump isn't what he appears to be.

I never claimed they did. I DO recall many people saying how Gov't regulations have set us back 100 years (I quoted that exact figure last week). I never said Government has saved the world, or done anything for that matter, I said that NOBODY, Government or otherwise has set us back 100 years. If they had, we'd be at 1919 standards, and we are not.

Nice attempt to twist my words, but that's not what I said.

Those taxes you so despise are what goes into supporting the infrastructure of your country,such as police/fire/military/roads/schools etc ,The only way to get out from under the tax thumb of the IRS and enjoy living free of income taxes is for an individual to renounce his U.S. citizenship and become a citizen or legal resident of a country with no income tax.

"Muh roads!"

Statist bingo in one post.

-Private security > trigger-happy cops
-75% of all firefighters are volunteer. Plus private firefighting is a growing industry.
-Roads should be privately-owned. And income taxes don't pay for roads.
-Government schools should be abolished. And income taxes don't pay for schools.

Notice how you don't mention things like a worldwide military empire, funding the Yemen genocide, and enabling a domestic police state (Homeland Security, TSA, NSA, etc.).

It costs $2500 to renounce, which is far and away the highest exit fee in the world. Why should it cost $2500 to renounce?

What say, C-D posters? What would you do with the money the IRS and your respective states (if applicable) stole from you?
Happy Rent Day*

Where do these people reside who feel they don't need to pay taxes, do they not use any services.
