Look around your house, garden, garage ,workshop, look at your store. Do you wish you had the money to improve it or do personal things just because you want to?
You're earning money but what you're paid and what your paycheck is are grossly different.
Taxes cause that. Some taxes are necessary for police, fire, roads etc. Let's look what's not needed. The fancy offices and town halls, schools and more. Why do they have to be so top of the line when We The People who are paying for them are barely getting by?
Pensions and top of the line healthcare for civil and elected public SERVANTS when the people paying for them aren't getting pensions or top of the line healthcare.
Don't forget all our taxes going to charities we may or may not support. Where is this allowed in the Constitution? I thought one of the reasons religions are tax exempt was because of their income going to charities.
Let's not ignore regulatory agencies that issue regulations/laws that have fines and punishments attached to them. Our laws, fines and punishments are supposed to be presented to us, discussed in public forums and then our representatives are supposed to vote on them according to what We The People want. They are not supposed to be written up privately in closed rooms by civil servants and not voted on.
People remember every time you see the words government, funded it is nothing more than a lie pushed by the government and a complacent media. It is TAXPAYER FUNDED. The government produces nothing all it does is extort taxes and fees from the citizens. Seniors and retirees who have spent decades paying into these taxes and fees should now be exempt Social Security be tax free.
