I feel the same way.
Starting three years ago, I started making really good money. Especially for a young man where I'm from, I may as well be Donald Trump. And, I was
proud to pay taxes. I was working out of state, where there was no state tax, and was naive at the time to think somehow, they just combined it into
"federal" and everything was divided up evenly. After a while, I started getting really agitated by the hundreds and hundreds of dollars coming out
of my check each week. What really killed me was when I started working more overtime than regular time.
I assumed that the more hours I worked, the less they would take, because that "just made sense" to me. So I worked 84 hour work weeks... After the
first check, I thought it was some sort of anomaly. How could they be taking 400 - 500 a week from me, and every single week? That's 1600 dollars a
month they were making off my naive ass! That's 19,000 dollars a year. I was given $3,000 back in my return.
I was a young person. I wasn't married. I was totally independent from the state and it's welfares. I worked hard and almost every day of my life
for 2 years straight. I wasn't taking any money back from the state or from my federal government and they were hitting me for a 1/4 of my paycheck
I started researching ways to cut down on my taxes when I came across "From Freedom
It shook me up. It really did. In high school I tried to get my father to sign the minor release papers for the Marine Corp at 17,
because my mother refused to sign them. The only thing that stopped me was my dad was AWOL and the recruiters never heard back from him. I still have
ambitions to join today! I figure that it's going to happen before the time I'm 25! But, at that time I was ready to go to war for my country. Ready
to fight for what I felt was right at the time, and this video hit me harder than any punch I've ever taken.
These faceless bastards sat back and collected 15,000 dollars a year from me! A hard working, country loving American. And not only do they want money
made from our blood (literally) and sweat (ultra literally), but now they want to single handedly stifle, if not completely tear down my country with
their money laundering program?
Hell no. Not again. Never will I fall for somebody else's bull#. Not Bernake's, not bush's, not McCain's, not Obama's, not Pelosi's, not
anybody's. If Ron Paul lied to us, I would write him off just as easily as the others. This is a take no prisoners protest.
I've watched my country nose dive at the hands of these men, and now they're asking for our help? After they are in someway responsible for
evictions, homelessness, repossessions, breaking up of families, suicides, and now complete economic failure. After ruining life after life, these
cowards want a hand?
Really? They just want a lil' help, a lil' hand. We'll just have to carry them for a minute, no big deal.
They deserve the gallows for high treason. Along with Bush, Cheney, Rove, Bernanke, Pelosi, McCain, Biden, and anybody else who's enabled these
thieves to ruin the lives of my fellow people.
We're not trash, we're not serfs, we're not indentured servants, we're not bums, we're not scum, we're not helpless, we're not hopeless, we're
not inferior to them, and we are in no way some sort of commodity that can be bought and sold. We are people and they have trounced on my humanity
since I was born.
The only thing they would ever get from me is a throw of the switch.
