Prior to 1913 No One Paid Income Tax. Why Now? | | Tenth Amendment Center

Of course, those receiving and benefiting from these programs will defend them.  But the fact remains that tax monies provide largely government jobs, which are almost entirely consumption jobs (jobs that consume the production of society but produce little consumable).  Such jobs cannot produce for public consumption a potato, a carton of milk, or even a can of hair spray.  They bring another person to the table to eat, but not another to produce something to eat.

Seems like we need to get back to “lean” Constitutional activities and cut the warfare / welfare state down to a much more manageable size.

Regardless of who’s in charge — the Democans or the Republicrats — Gooferment just gets bigger and bigger.

No new programs, no new taxes, and an ongoing program of 1% annual real bottom line cuts.

    Great article. In Canada, we didn’t pay income tax prior to 1917. I wrote a post about it on my blog called Temporary Measures.
