I hate to break this to you, but we have all been on the farm for a very long time. Voting for a new master doesn't make you free.But I will say that this thing has revealed itself to the nation in the past few months. This thing does not view people as humans, but as livestock to be managed and milked. This thing is inherently evil.
I'm no fan of Bloomberg, but most of the politically incorrect things he has said are true. If you have no dog in the tax fight, there is no reason to resist raising taxes on others so that you can get more freebies.“People say, ‘Oh, we don’t want to tax the poor,’” but raising taxes on them “should have a bigger impact on their behavior” – for their own good – former New York City Mayor Bloomberg told a Spring 2018 meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
This is why I would rather have a national sales tax than an income tax. Everyone pays a sales tax. A national sales tax would also encourage saving, making people less dependent upon the government.If the amount YOU pay in taxes is on the line, you will resist the Democrats' continual calls for tax increases. If low-income families have to share the tax burden, there will be fewer low-income people voting Democrat. Everyone should have to pay something in taxes. That could be 5%, but it should be something.
That's called the VAT (value-added tax) in Europe. It's a consumption tax that's embedded in the cost of almost everything. The VAT is paid in addition to income taxes. You won't see a sales tax listed on a receipt in Europe because the VAT is already included in the cost of the products. The VAT is also charged on homes and cars. It can be anywhere from 25% to 35%, depending on the country.This is why I would rather have a national sales tax than an income tax. Everyone pays a sales tax. A national sales tax would also encourage saving, making people less dependent upon the government.
That's Communism to the core!Bloomberg to Poor: 'Taxes or Life? Which Do You Want?'
