POLITICAL: Vote by dollars; count all the dollars that are stolen from us

“What’s good for General Motors is good for the country.” Since we now “own” GM and other “private” entities we can easily adopt the proxy voting systems used in corporate America for federal elections (in corporate elections each shareholder gets voting power in proportion to shares owned). Each eligible voter would have a total number of votes equal to the dollar amount paid in personal federal income taxes over the previous two years. If you paid $20,000 in taxes you get 20,000 votes. If you paid $200,000 in taxes you get 200,000 votes. Again, what could be fairer?

Of course, we’d have to eliminate ALL the hidden taxes we pay. Sales tax, capital gains, etc. etc. etc. And the two biggest taxes of all — inflation and the corporate income taxes that get passed on to real people!

McDonald told the newspaper that two tax preparation companies, Seguros Internacionales, in Spartanburg and Forest City, N.C., and Poz Servicios Para Hispanos, in Boiling Springs, and associated individuals filed at least 10,000 federal income tax returns and claimed more than $22 million in refunds. The two firms are said to have been shut down.

“The fraud can go undetected for years – until the child looks for a job as a teenager,” he explained.

Rubenstein adds that the ACTC is even available to illegals without Social Security numbers. They simply use an Income Taxpayer Identification Number, or ITIN, which he says the “IRS is only too happy to provide.”

According to the report, the General Accounting Office has reported that the IRS estimates between 27 and 32 percent of EITC dollars are collected fraudulently.

Yeah, when you file your return, think about the EITC and get mad.

The whole income tax fiasco should make you mad anyway, but this should just send you off the deep end!

It does me.

Argh!

RANT: VAT on spending “tax free” dollars

America: Prepare For An Avalanche Of Taxes
by J.D. Longstreet

*** begin quote ***

Charles Krauthammer has authored a piece entitled: “The ‘value added tax’ is coming to America” In his article Krauthammer says: “People are used to sales taxes, and this one produces a river of revenue. Every 1 percent of VAT would yield up to $1 trillion a decade (depending on what you exclude – if you exempt food the yield would be more like $900 billion).

It’s the ultimate cash cow. Obama will need it. By introducing universal health care, he has pulled off the largest expansion of the welfare state in four decades. And the most expensive. Which is why all of the European Union has the VAT. Huge VATs. Germany: 19 percent. France and Italy: 20 percent. Most of Scandinavia: 25 percent.

Social Security was supposed to be tax free. Then the Democratic congresscritters reneged on that pledge, so it’s included in your income tax.

Roth’s were supposed to accumulate tax free since you already paid tax on them.

After the plague of taxes, you save a few bucks.

Then, when you go to spend them, you’re paying taxes.

Hidden taxes abound in the cost of products and services thanks to the corporate taxes.

When do we say “Stop, thief!”?

QUOTE: The Sixteenth Amendment

“It was not until the Abraham Lincoln administration that an income tax was imposed on Americans. Its stated purpose was to finance the war, but it took until 1872 for it to be repealed. During the Grover Cleveland administration, Congress enacted the Income Tax Act of 1894. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional in 1895. It took the Sixteenth Amendment (1913) to make permanent what the Framers feared — today’s income tax.” — Walter Williams
