you all need to see that "where over 50% of our taxes goes" video.

the federal government takes like 3 trilling or something, of all our taxes, to just lock away, virtually and fake.

think about when your pay gets cut, or they raise taxes.

"sorry we have to let you go, we gotta shut it down, we gotta cut your pay"


they have so much money, almost every single problem in america could be fixed, yet they continue to steal, yes STEAL our taxes (would you pay if you didn't have to?)

to spend them on things the simply DO NOT WORK, and things that WE THE PEOPLE, DO NOT WANT.

no taxation without representation.

i don't see representation, i see oppression and robbery.

the economy is bad because every single day "they" hammer it into everyones heads/

"on the news today, things are REALLY bad, the economy oh noes"

its a lie.

gas prices.

also a lie.

they could make it 1$ a gallon with the money they steal, and don't get me started on how they suppress new technologies from the public, like free energy.

they can afford it all, but they are greedy and would rather shut down schools and hospitals, and then spend millions upon millions on "get learned" programs for kids that don't do well in school, because school sucks, and is rigged to be difficult.

school is a place of learning, but no. not any more.


take this information as you like, im going to sleep. (probably)

Gas prices are a lie; the price of crude oil has NOTHING to do with the price of refined oil at the pump; the refining process takes roughly 3 months, meaning whatever the price of crude oil is today, the price of oil at the pump should not reflect that price for at least 3 months. It's all exploitation.

Private interest>public interest. This is all there is to be said of why our country's infrastructure is in shambles.

One more thing for the TrutherGirls to add to the list...

"If you were told that taxes were how beneficial goods and services were funded..."

Man I am tracking you on this one. Every single purchase made from wholesale and retail has a tax fixed to it. Think about it for a moment. All imports are taxed, there is employment to move these goods to the retail outlet, ie shipping and the like. These guys are taxed on their income. The employee spends his earning on goods that have taxes fixed to them then state sales taxes at 6-9% depending on which state ........our government is a "great collector of Taxes"

I agree with you across the board

Gotta fund Empire bro.
Close to 1.7 Trillion in military expenditures worldwide. Billions spent in foreign aid. Plus we build schools,bridges, roads, water treatment facilities, AFTER we have blown them up in senseless wars and occupations.
Its a strange hybrid of imperialism, mixed with Socialism in the sense that the countries we have not gone to war with we enforce dependence on America through Foreign aid.

We suck at Empire. Prior empires knew enough to demand tribute from the countries they occupy, we just continually enforce higher and higher taxes on the citizenry of the homeland, to fund our ever expanding adventures overseas.

700 military Bases all over the Planet, in darn near every country (begin sarcasm)...TAX THE PLANET!!

The entire concept of taxing none existant money is a farse. The .gov does not need to extract wealth from Americans, evver since they made the federal reserve, taxation has been for the sole reason of causing economic hardship on the people.

Just for example, the .gov can and does print money wholesale, they no more need to extract wealth from Americans to pay the bills, than they need to invade a 3rd world country to protect Americans at home.

The entire concept makes no sense at any level, yet most people are not smart enough to see what's right in front of their eyes.

Money is fantasy, it does not exist, it is imaginary. It only has value because we collectively believe it does, everyone believeing a wrong idea does not make it any more true.

As it is imaginary, and they can simply print as much as they need( google the FED if you don't know what I mean) which means. The entire system of extracting taxes from people is nonsense in the first place. There is no point, or need, except to keep people as financially drained as possible.
