Enough Is Enough: Abolish the IRS
By Editor on April 12, 2015

*** begin quote ***

The income tax is absolutely crazy if one takes a moment to think about it. We’ve become so conditioned to accept it that we don’t even realize how ridiculous it is. The government taxes one for being productive, for creating income for one’s family, for doing one’s part to grow the economy. It doesn’t make any sense.

*** and ***

The IRS has also become a political tool as the Lois Lerner debacle illustrated. 

*** and ***

We should seriously consider a flat tax. Forget consider, we should institute a low flat tax tomorrow. 12.5% across the board. I could live with that (for right now.) 1 postcard on April 15th. No forms. Easy. Actually EZ.

*** end quote ***

I say 10%!

With reduction every year.

Until it’s zero.

Like Prohibition, “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”, and the Federal Reserve, “We, The Sheeple” have allowed a lot of mistakes to be made.

Argh!

  1. Well John, despite my Peace Studies background I *do* have to allow for at least *some* level of support of “men with guns” to protect us from some of the sick and crazy folks out there. The trick is always in “Who’s Minding The Minders?” and we’ve given so MUCH power and money to those minders that we’re in big trouble.

    P.S. I think alcohol is already down at around a 15% tax rate. Cigarettes on the other hand are hit with roughly a 300% tax rate. The tobacco companies, after putting in all the work that any corporations of their size puts in, gets something like 25 to 50 cents per pack sold. The government meanwhile, after putting in ZERO work, walks away with anywhere from about three up to around ten dollars per pack sold (if you include sales, MSA, Excise, SCHIP, and middleman taxes paid)

    ZERO is the correct number. And every ratchet down is “good”. I am NOT “generous”; I’m afraid of the “Gang with Guns”!

  3. Hey, I could live with a simple 12.5% tax on cigarettes and alcohol! Heck, I’d even support 15%! See what a generous guy I am?
