We are smacked silly with taxes. So silly that we don't do anything about it.
Have we forgotten that we are free people and the government serves us?
It is not the other way around.
The government people have somehow instilled in their well-paid selves that they are free to do what they want and that we are there to serve them. They tax us and tax us and tax us, then they tax the taxes.
When they run out of taxes they switch over to charging fees, as if somehow those are different. A little while later they think up even more taxes and then some more fees. They are out of control. It is very much like organized crime taking what it wants.
How do they get away with it? They get away with it because no one stands up and says no.
It is quite valid to tell the governments to roll back all taxes 50% and then tell them to live within those means. And it is quite valid to tell them to do it now. And to tell them that there will be no further increases unless the people say yes.
If the government people put up excuses and say, "We can't", or, "But, but, but," then you replace them. They are there to serve you. It is not the opposite.
You are a free citizen and you can tell them what to do.
