Here in The Netherlands our government is out of control and taxing it's citizens into poverty. Even the European Central Bank is calling out to them
to stop running the country into the ground.
And guess what their newest tax scams are... Right, environmental taxes.
In a time span of 6 months they introduced packing tax on supermarket products, extra tax on airplane flights and extra tax on cars that have engines
bigger then 2 liters, effectively putting the tax on a car at 65% of the buying price!
And they hide behind the environment to justify these taxes that are according to them necessary for our survival. Do they spend the money they gain
with these environmental taxes on actually improving the invironment?
Of course not, because that is obviously not the point. The point is to capitalize on the new invironmental hype and make big money off it. They are
discussing a new environmental tax with a big smile on their face as we speak. What is it? Co2 tax. Yes they want to measure the Co2 output on all
citizens and let them pay for it accordingly. What's the next step? Well we jokingly speculate here in The Netherlands that it will be breathing tax.
Everybody produces Co2 when they breathe so...
What these hypocrits that call themselves politicians should do is get off the big oil egotrip and start utilizing alternative energy (which I'm
certain we already have). But unfortunately our government and royal family are heavily in league with Royal Dutch Shell. So they tax their citizens
into poverty through all these so called "necessary" invironmental taxes and get rich whilst also in the meantime making billions of the inflated
