On this September 29, 2017, an analogy being a comparison on two things, like racial prejudice and black people, I’ve listened to arguments on this. Is it right to disrespect the flag, the thing that holds the nation together? President Trump doesn’t think so.
I’m a white male. The comparison made by the left: I’m against minorities. I’m egocentric. The comparison made by the right: blacks are disruptive and disorderly. The nation has never been more divided.
President Trump has launched his tax plan. According to President Trump, his tax plan is to simplify a ridiculously complicated process. This is a good thing to do. His plan is to cut oppressive taxation on the middleclass. This is a good thing to do. According to the President, cutting corporate taxes will bring jobs back to the United States, causing wages to go up. This is a good thing to do. The President plans to end the so-called death tax. This will allow farming families who have for generations farmed continue to farm. This is a good thing.
But what about the comparisons being made? This is not a good thing. Nothing in the President’s tax plan addresses this great and growing problem. In fact, it further promotes the division in America.
I’ve a story to tell you never hear and never will hear if you leave it to the powers that be.
Federal income tax, like everything government gets involved in on a personal level, begins as something really great government wants to do for the people, like redistribution of incomes.
The rich are prone to take advantage of the not so rich. The U.S. government passed the 16th Amendment to the Constitution, a tax on the capitals gains of the rich, as well as their incomes. In 1925, in the year I was born, Congress decided that the tax collector should be permitted to enter the private domain of the rich, an expedience the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution did not allow, this expedience needed to see that the rich didn’t cheat on their income tax. We agreed that this was necessary. My question: why a tax on income if it demands expedience?
When I was a boy, the average worker paid zero tax on his income. It took only one job to support a family. Mothers were homemakers. By the way, this included black families.
The feds’ redistribution plan is responsible for welfare mothers. The more children, the more the welfare. Consequently, 70 percent of black children exist in single parent families. The crime rate has soared. The more the redistribution, the more the tax needed; the more the division; and the more the centralization of power.
Money goes where money flows. The rich buy politicians. That’s why President Trump is a billionaire. He has played the game. He knows all about it.
Consequently, government statistics show that one percent of the American people own 50 percent of the wealth. While it is true that everything President Trump wants is good, this I bring to your attention is the end result of redistribution of the wealth, a story you never hear from politicians. Actually, the story I tell is the biggest fraud in history. And who are the victims? You guessed it. Black people.
I happen to be a white male—out of sight out of mind. In 1925, we agreed it was necessary to do away with Fourth Amendment privacy for the purpose of income tax collection.
In 1974, I wrote a letter to Attorney General William B. Saxbe advising him that federal income taxation was unconstitutional. Why? Because I was being taxed. I wasn’t rich. In fact federal income tax put me out of business. That which began as a tax against the rich, for the purpose of income redistribution, became a tax against every American worker. The plans of mice and men often go awry.
Saxbe forwarded my letter to the tax collector who went on a fishing expedition. He sent his man to my home. This federal agent spent a week going through my personal records looking for something—anything he could use to tax me. He found something.
I received a phone call. The tax collector wanted to discuss the tax I allegedly owed. I filed a petition to be heard in the U.S. Tax Court. It took four years to be heard. In the meanwhile the tax collector was privileged to do anything he chose. I was struggling to exist on a minimum paying job. The tax collector illegally put me on the street. Now you know how black folks are treated. This white male made the mistake of complaining. Like many a black male, I ended with my car license my address. Next stop for many a black male is prison.
I had a story that interested the lamestream press. It was printed. The tax collector apologized and that was the end of it. The tax collector continued to harass me.
Why a tax on income? Why not a tax on spending? President Trump wants to give the working poor a $12,000 tax break. Try to live on $12,000. It is impossible for a working person. Federal income tax began as a tax on the rich. Why not a $30,000 exemption, a minimum living for the worker.
Why doesn’t the President talk about a tax on spending? It’s obvious why he doesn’t. If the rich wanted to live like royalty, they would pay a king’s ransom in tax.
The rich would not pay any tax on capital investment. By such investment, there would be more jobs. Clearly, federal income tax was an underhanded means of the rich and powerful taking advantage of the meek. So much for the President’s plan.
It is all a game of charades, folks. Tax is one of the means being used to divide the nation—to keep the poor coming to their lords with their hands out.
We live in a credit economy. Astronomical sums are borrowed by politicians to buy votes, with handouts of taxpayer money. Wars and national emergencies require immense borrowing, for which bankers earn interest. The world’s wealth is concentrated in banks. As long as we allow this system, we are all slaves. Racial prejudice is sucker bate. America’s flag is being trampled, not by those blamed, but by the powers that be. The division is turning us into slaves.
We’ve not yet begun to discuss the real problem, the politicians means of redistribution of the wealth. It all ends in the pockets of the rich and powerful. It’s a joke! We need the end of federal income tax. We have the right to exist on the fruits of our own labor. How could we ever have allowed this?
