Just two videos which I found funny as we all just paid our federal income taxes. I think for many people, even those who aren't really politically astute, income taxes are the one thing that has a tendency to wake people up or take the red pill.

It often happens once you've worked really hard and start getting some measure of success and start seeing how much the government is ripping you off.

Lil Boosie is a rapper from Louisiana. He was hot in the early 2000s and wound up doing a couple of year bid (on death row) for a murder charge that he eventually beat. Anyway, he is known for his straight at you interviews on VladTV, a popular interview show on youtube. This video is from a couple of years ago when Trump was running and he was asked who he would vote for and his response was "Whoever lowers my taxes..."

He goes on a screed about paying 35% or $350k for every $1 million he makes. He eloquently equates it to being held up by the mob. It is quite enlightening.




Next up, you have Cardi B. Grammy award winning stripper.... complaining about she doesn't know where her taxes are going.





All I can say..... Welcome to the Republican Party...

35% of every million? The guy is a 1%er. Aren't THOSE the kind of people everyone wants to pay more of their "fair share"? I think I paid 12%-13% overall this year on a nice income. Pretty good compared to the EU.

A rapper complaining about the amount taxed ?
That means the 1% is being taxed despite what the Dems say.

A stripper does not know where tax money goes ?
Perhaps a bit of old fashioned school and some Civics classes are in order.

Why is this a Republican thing ?

It's worse than the mob. If you move to another city/state, you at least have a chance at getting away from the mob.

Local government rips us off way more than federal. At least in New Jersey. With no federal government policing local government organize crime runs the government in New Jersey. At this point 2nd and 3rd cousins are making 6 figures working for the police of municipal government.
