Itís Time To Walketh The Talketh!
By R. A. Hawkins
I think it is high time to end all forms of taxation here and now. I feel, nay I demand, we end all taxes. Nothing good has come from them yet and it is time to establish some rules of conduct for those against taxes and their inherent evils. Everyone is tired of the huge disaster created by the welfare state. By the welfare state I also mean the one we have created overseas. In the European countries we have created an intellectual vacuum called socialism. We were their protectors and they went out to create a huge socialized medicine system with the savings brought by our military presence. They were to be the frontline of our defenses against the advances of communism and have backed out repeatedly when we needed a bit of a payback. The same kind of attitude is prevalent here now. Go out and talk to people on welfare. You will quickly see that your desire to no longer support them is almost a hate crime in their minds. They demand their fair share of your money. We have created a fertile field wherein communism can readily sprout and flourish. This is your tax money at work.
Part of the problem is the tax money is often Ďworkedí to create a paid electorate for people who couldnít get into office otherwise. Those certain wielders of the tax purse strings have even used the money to forge their very own mouth piece in the name of the First Amendment. I just love to hear all of that goofy liberal drivel on my radio that Iím paying for. The Public stations are all just about the same in that regard. To attempt to approach them in any way is a violation of the First Amendment? What a ludicrous argument that is. Let them pay for their own station in the free market like the rest of us. Isnít it interesting to see them provide about the only anti-conservative voice using legalized plunder because they canít make it in the free market? No wonder they hate our system. They canít handle it. Itís time to do something about it.
I think just about everybody is fed up enough with this mess to agree we need to have a change and have it now. Here is what we all have to do in order to not be hypocrites. We must never again use the Internet because it was created with tax money and specifically for the military. That is a good cue to the anti-war crowd, to never use the internet again. The same goes for the use of any computer. There are plenty of reasons for the left wingers, no wingers and the right wingers alike to never use a computer again. The left wingers can stay off their computers because the technology was created, once again, by Imperialist military contractors. The right wing tax haters need to stay off of the computers for economic reasons. They realize that if it wasnít for this technology of miniaturization created through tax money, they wouldnít even be able to afford the land the computer on their desk would take up. It is a matter of honor. The Libertarians can use any of the above reasons to stay off of the Internet and their computers. They donít know what or why they believe anything, and besides all of that, feeling like youíre right is much more important than having a clue as to what you are really talking about. As a matter of fact, if you are on both sides of each issue you will always be right as long as you remember to ignore the equal number of losses you suffer. If you have any doubts on that go ask Hitlery or Dashallhope.
It is also imperative that all of the above never have any form of modern surgery. In order to be honest they will all have to medically go back to whatever they were doing in say the fifties, or even the forties. There really isnít too much under the sun that wasnít enhanced medically or electronically in some way by tax money. Cars that are super efficient and which will soon be available have all been products of the same type of evil tax enhanced projects. Weíre talking integrated circuits, miniature lasers and the works. All of that gore-tex and nylon many of us like will have to be chucked. I hope many of the tax complainers will go along with my suggestions, as the world and the Internet will become a much more rational place. Oh you noticed that I sort of backed out and quit mentioning us and began talking about other people there? There is a good reason for that. Iím hoping that the more knee-jerk over-reacting people didnít bother to finish the article, as the world will be a better place without their noise. I hope they are disconnecting and cussing as they fling their now nonessential computers into the trash can. I do hope they got as far as the medical part so they will be maybe a little quicker to depart us. What is the point of all of this?
Well, maybe it would be a good idea for people to stop for a second and see how properly spent tax money has benefited them. One of the few areas where tax money has actually been spent well is in the expansion of the technological frontiers. If youíre reading this youíve been benefiting from it for a while. The computer you are now using is a product of the space program. The space it used to take up would have been a few city blocks and it still wouldnít be as powerful as the one you are now using. That sparked a whole bunch of new businesses and there are new spin-off technologies on the way as a result. I have no doubt a lot of what will come wonít be very good, but thatís just one of those human nature things. There will be a lot of good to come of it, however. For those who choose to get their kids out of public schools, which are quite often miserable nests of socialism and various other types of failures, the Internet is often where they turn for access to interesting and educational topics for their children. Iím certain there is somebody out there that is probably thinking "Yeah well how did all of this benefit me or say maybe the tires on my car?"
Oh ye of little brains! Even thy tires were improved by the magic of the new technology. They couldst not measureth so finitely until now. Know ye not? For once they were able to measureth it round about and to weigh and measureth it to find it wanting or perfect in their sight. The same thinking shouldst be applied to taxes and the expenditureth thereof. The results should be weighed and measured and cast down if the results are found to be wanting. Understandeth ye not? Am I but lone voice crying out in the bewilderness?
Right now would still be a good time for a tax cut because that actually increases the number of jobs because money starts flowing again. Money circulating in the economy generates more tax revenues as it passes through each gate. When a company or person has to withhold money for the purposes of being able to pay their taxes the money isnít flowing. That creates what they call stagflation. Too much money chasing after too few goods can cause inflation and too little money chasing after too many goods can have the same effect. The liberals havenít figured that out yet. Either that or they have and want to continue to use taxation to create the division they need for a full scale communist revolution as they continue to whittle away at the middle class while claiming their enemy is the uber-rich.
