I support a flat income tax because I think if everyone pays at the same rate, everyone is equally invested in seeing that government is run efficiently and taxes are kept in check. Instead, they have us all divided up with the middle class paying more percentage-wise often than both the wealthiest Americans and the poorest. That’s not fair. In my opinion, it’s a form of economic genocide. Why should the wealthy then care if the government isn’t running efficiently if their tax rates are lower than most after deductions and loopholes? Why should the poor care about the tax rate if they pay effectively little or no taxes?

A flat tax is the fairest tax, plain and simple.

The problem with having a tax revolt at the individual level is that individuals never see the money paid to the government for income taxes. Their employers act as an often unwilling agent of the state by directly withdrawing their income taxes from their pay and giving it directly to the government. So the individual doesn’t have the option of saying, “No, you are doing things with my taxes substantially in a way I disagree with and so I’m going to keep my tax monies until you change your ways.” That’s not an option anymore. That is of course one of the primary reasons why taxes keep going up and up. There is no individual control over the method of taxation.

Because the individual never sees the money used to pay their income taxes aside from a description on their earnings statements, they have essentially been stripped of that money because they have no authority to control what is done with the result of their own labor. That is of course what makes it a form of theft in the modern day historical definition that “taxation is theft.”

The only way to have a true tax revolt in today’s day and age would be for employers to perhaps take a vote of their employees and if the majority of the employees don’t think their taxes should come out of their pay automatically, then the employers disburse their complete wages and salaries directly to their employees and the employees can either pay their taxes or withhold them, based on their beliefs. Or some variation of that.

To my knowledge, that is not an option currently, but perhaps it should be.

The reason the Mueller Report took so long to complete is that the investigation needed to go beyond the mid-term elections. The Democratic Party knew there was no Russian collusion. The objective wasn’t to discover any collusion, rather it was to install Socialist-Democrats during the mid-term elections, almost two years after the investigation began.

The objective of The Mueller Investigation was to create doubt in the minds of those voters on the fence and force them over to the Socialist-Democrats. It worked. We now have avowed socialists in office throughout the country and as many Democrats who probably don’t even recognize that they are socialists.

By indicting anyone and everyone surrounding the President on whatever charge they could levy, the opposition sent the voters to the ballot box with a big question on their minds and many changed their ideology. That is clear by the results of the election.

So, it is my opinion that the reason the report took so long to complete was so that it went beyond the mid-term elections and threw the election in favor of the Socialist-Democrats.

It worked. Remember that the next time you go to vote.

Some like to refer to Social Security as an “entitlement,” because you pay in to it all your life and so when you retire, you should benefit. It’s therefor in their minds an entitlement.

Wrong! You never see the principal again. Unlike when you contribute to a 401K (which is taxed all to hell before you get back at it to remove the principal or receive payments), or an IRA for that matter, unlike both of them with Social Security you only ever see your payments, if you live long enough to get them. Therefor, Social Security is a tax, not an entitlement. You will never see your principal again.

You might have contributed many tens of thousands of dollars or more which upon death your offspring or siblings will never see again in the form of money willed to them. And throughout your life you must pay Social Security Taxes on your income. You have no choice.

Social Security is not an entitlement, it’s a tax. Add it to your Federal and State income tax to see your total tax liability. Call it what it is. You can’t change it until you realize what it truly is, a tax. It’s a tax because you never see your principal again. Gone are thousands and thousands of dollars that you could have prospered with upon retirement. Instead, you get a measly monthly payment.

Don’t let the communists fool you.

Undoubtedly the Democratic Party’s desire to have Michael Cohen testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform undermined President Trump’s ability to negotiate a safer America during his summit with Kim Jong Un.

It is likely that North Korean adviser’s informed the dictator that President Trump is in no position to negotiate a nuclear deal, something that would make all of us safer, due to the political infighting going on here in The US and the simultaneous testimony of Michael Cohen publicly discrediting The President, political behavior that would not go unpunished in North Korea, severely unpunished, something they probably can’t even comprehend there, and probably would not even consider.

In the future one would hope that the Democratic Party would refrain from its unwavering desire to gain control of all branches of government by emasculating American global political authority and let our elected leadership work effectively and unhindered to protect the citizens of the country.

Those nukes aren’t pointed at The Democratic Party Headquarters. They are pointed at the people. That’s where most nuclear weapons are pointed. That’s what makes them a deterrent. And yet it is primarily the Democrats that want to take away the people’s guns. I guess now we know why. It kind of makes you wonder whose side they are on? When you think about it, how the repeated actions of The Democratic Party support a potential adversary, it’s not a real stretch to reach that conclusion, if you know what I mean. It’s not right there on the surface, but if you uncover a few layers, there it is right there staring you in the face.
