Look,we have to stop playing their game.The people we vote into office consider us buffoons.Tax money tax money tax money; that's what they thrive on. They have to stay up late at night trying to contrive new and different ways to spend it. We have to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs.Cut the tax money!!
Drive less= less fuel tax
Here in OR, they want to tax us on how many miles we drive to work and back. Their reason? Because there are alot more green cars on the roads now and the taxes are shrinking. LOL go figure!
Buy less= less sales tax,less excise tax,etc.
There is no sales tax here...yet and we've buried it multiple times, I lost count after 6x already, with a resounding NO! but, our state taxes are among the highest in the nation. The real problem is, taxes are just a bandaid, till the economy re-opens the gaping wound and it begins to hemorrhage...kinda like it is now.
Work for hire less= less income tax
Only problem with this is, living expenses are such that ppl need to live and try and stay on top of it all without using credit. The only way to do this is either live off the grid or get a higher paying job...and we all know where we are with this now.
Barter and trade for goods and service.Hard to tax,hard to even trace.
I'm not sure in this age, it can be effectively done.
Personally, it's coming down to where none of us will be able to buy sell or trade without some sort of new tracking system and people will gladly clamber to whatever TPTB offer to save their lifestyle. As the book reads, to a bitter soul, everything is sweet.
These so called civil servants are hard core criminals Imo.They have taxed and spent us into slavery to the system.
Stop playing their game!! Every little bit helps!!!
VIENNA: The United Nations' crime and drug watchdog has indications that money made in illicit drug trade has been used to keep banks afloat in the global financial crisis, its head was quoted as saying on Sunday.
Vienna-based UNODC Executive Director Antonio Maria Costa said in an interview released by Austrian weekly Profil that drug money often became the only available capital when the crisis spiralled out of control last year.
"In many instances, drug money is currently the only liquid investment capital," Costa was quoted as saying by Profil. "In the second half of 2008, liquidity was the banking system's main problem and hence liquid capital became an important factor."

I say we vote everyone out of their position. We can do that you know. What we need are people running this country who actually know what it's like to work for a living. Then they can make an Amendment, which is the correct way of changing a Constitutional law, crushing the banking system which has raped us for so long. That's a start at least.

The US is in urgent need of it's manufacturing base creating value from real assets and selling them on the open market. Unlike many nations we are fully capable of prospering without the aid of other countries.
The Federal Reserve thought it knew what it was doing: it was letting the private sector handle the Depression in its own fashion. It saw the private sector's task as the "liquidation" of the American economy. And it feared that expansionary monetary policy would impede the necessary private-sector process of readjustment.
