You'd think such a great and benevolent government would relieve your tax burden in these times of uncertainty to help you stay in your home.
For the love of god why the hell do people still tolerate this? Even defend this?
You're a worthless deadbeat if you dont enjoy the burden government places on your head, they say. You're one of those brain dead capitalists in the
corporations pocket, they say. All while their lord and master government on high rapes families from sea to shining sea.
Rather than tax evictions there needs to be more standoffs. Neighbors be neighbors and stand shoulder to shoulder when they come to kick you out and
take your home and say "no, no more, these are our homes" and never cry for a dead tyrant. Remember they chose their jobs. Dont buy the lie of "just
doing my job" or "I'm a regular guy just like you." It didnt fly in Nuremberg and it shouldnt fly here..
But of course the great and benevolent government jacked up your rates when your home was riding an all time high of artificial value so it could rake
in as much as possible and when your homes value crashed it just kept on jacking the rates because now it's your sworn duty to keep that great and
benevolent government swimming in cash and if something happens and you can no longer afford your home your great and benevolent government will
surely be there with bank in hand to take over that property of yours and shop it around to somebody who can afford their greatness and
No, I don't think the gov't would relieve my tax burden. But as far as my property taxes, I didn't live in one of those areas that had property
values balloon to ridiculous highs. We just had an appraisal b/c we were disputing the amount we are paying in taxes. Well, what we found out is
that the county actually has the value of our house as $146,000. Our appraisal valued our house at $165,000 and we paid $150,000 five years ago.
(We also had a down payment of $34,000) So we dropped our dispute and got with a group that is disputing the hike in the tax rate over the last 6
years due to industry moving to China, Indonesia, Mexico, etc.
The fact is that the middle class is being taxed out of existence. With the way things are going, there will only be the haves and the have nots.
So no, I am not one of those people that think government is supposed to make my life better. (if they want to do that, they can keep their hands
out of my back pocket) I do think that we owe what was promised to the generations that came before us. I doubt I'll ever see a Social Security check.
That is why we have 401k's, Roth's, Savings and investment property that is not in the city limits.
