March marks 100 year Anniversary of Progressive Income Tax #Yippee #SOTR


Via Against Crony Capitalism:

On February 3, 1913 Delaware ratified the 16th Amendment to the Constitution which created the income tax. It was a dark day for America yet some see it as a day to be celebrated, or ahem, “commemorated.” Professor Ajay K. Mehrotra at Indiana University is one of these people. In an essay in Bloomberg he explains to us that the income tax was not born from any effort ”radically” redistribute of wealth, but in fact from a high minded progressive effort more interested in “balanc(ing) fiscal duties and civic responsibilities.”

Yet who really thinks that the United States government actually accomplishes any benevolence within the US? I certainly don’t. Public opinion has been solidly against higher taxes until just recently when a sizable group of Americans realized that they could live off of the government and have proceeded to do so.

The proliferation of government intervention into the private sector spawned an insatiable need to increase taxes on all Americans to fund benevolent programs, intended to balance power and help the poor.

Instead of helping, Americans have watched powerlessly as their hard earned money has been wasted on studies into lesbian prostitution, shrimp running on treadmills and studying pig poop.

The time to put an end to all of this waste is now.

    Stacy, I just saw your youtube video explaining why you are a conservative. I had been watching Alfonzo Rachel vids and yours came up.
    I’m sure you must get this all the time and it will be, literally, the first time I’ve done this via email, web etc. but you are smokin hot, are you married, attached or otherwise engaged?
    You seem to be an exceptional woman.
    I realize someone like you will never be alone, so this was kind of tongue-in-cheek as they say. But I will be favoriting your site and will check in from time to time.

    Conservatively Yours,

    Best Regards,
