Ron Paul: “Income Tax = Involuntary Servitude” – 4/13/2009

income tax In his latest column, Ron Paul talks about Tax Freedom Day, a hypothetical holiday which is celebrated today, April 13, and symbolizes the fact that Americans are slaving away 3.5 months, or 28.2% of this year to fulfill the governments voracious appetite for outrageous taxes, catastrophic bailouts and misguided stimulus efforts. Ron Paul wants to abolish the income tax and replace it with nothing, and until that dream becomes a political reality, he fights for every tax cut and tax credit possible.
_________________________________________
Taxes are the issue this week as Americans struggle to make the April 15th deadline to file their returns. It is a good time to contemplate the effects of big government and what it does to our country. The income tax is one of the most egregious encroachments on our liberties today. It is a form of involuntary servitude, which was supposed to have been outlawed by the 13th Amendment.

Tax Freedom Day is defined as the day when the nation as a whole has theoretically earned enough income to fund its annual federal tax burden. For all of the days of the year before this day, you are a slave to government. For 2009, Tax Freedom Day will come on April 13th. Almost a century ago in 1910, before the mistakes of 1913-namely the inception of the Federal Reserve and our current income tax, Tax Freedom Day was January 19th, signifying a mere 5% tax burden. Somehow, our country functioned just fine.

If calculated to include government spending and the deficit, rather than just collections, Tax Freedom Day would actually fall on May 29. The annual deficit adds to the growing debt of future generations and adds insult to injury to those that struggle to make this economy work. It is a slap in the face that this is not enough to prevent this crushing governmental burden from falling on the next generation.

For months now, Washington has been desperately throwing taxpayers money at various programs to stimulate us out of the recession, to no avail. Seeing hard-earned money confiscated from the people and spent in such wasteful ways, such as the recent bailouts, is almost too much to bear. Getting rid of the income tax altogether, while very beneficial, may be a while in coming. In the meantime, I am fighting for every tax cut or tax credit possible.

I can think of no better economic stimulus than letting people keep their money and spend it how they see fit. For this reason, I am an original cosponsor on a bill that would give Americans a two month employment and income tax holiday, while taking unused TARP money back from the Secretary of the Treasury and putting it in the Social Security trust fund instead.

In addition, I have recently introduced the Child Health Care Affordability Act. If passed this legislation would provide parents with a tax credit of up to $500 for health care expenses of dependent children. I have also re-introduced the Tax Free Tips Act, which would make tips exempt from federal income and payroll taxes. I am also an original cosponsor of a bill that would make permanent the deduction of state and local sales taxes. My bill HR 162 exempts Social Security benefits from Income Tax.

These are just a few of the many tax related bills I am fighting for in Congress, but without a corresponding cut in the size of government, which I am also fighting for, we are simply adding to the future tax burden of our children.

No Law Requires You to Pay Income Tax, Period.

income tax http://RevolutionNews.US — Did you know that the U.S. Government permits the FED to create money out of thin air – with no gold backing?

. The IRS is a Criminal Organization.

Did you know that the FED loans the money to the U.S. Government WITH INTEREST? (This interest makes up the Federal Debt)

Did you know that the Federal Reserve (FED) is a private, for-profit organization?

Have you wondered why the U.S. Government does not print the money itself and eliminate paying interest to the private for-profit FED?

Did you know that 1999 payments to the private FED totaled $1,703,000,000,000? That is over $36 million dollars per hour!

Do you realize that because of the above, the children, grand children, great grand children and great, great grandchildren of the FED owners will NEVER have to work a day in their lives while you work 12 hours a day just to make ends meet?

Did you know that on January 15, 1984 the Grace Commission (a private sector, blue ribbon committee requested by President Ronald Regan) found that “100 percent of what is collected is absorbed SOLELY by interest on the Federal Debt�.all individual Income Tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the service taxpayers EXPECT FROM GOVERNMENT!”

Did you know that President John F. Kennedy started creating United States dollars to replace the Federal Reserve dollars shortly before he was assassinated?

Did you know that in 1933 under Executive Order Number (6073) then President F.D. Roosevelt made it illegal for anyone to own or trade gold (Except Federal Reserve Banks) with jail and large fines for those that did not give up their gold? That executive order was only applicable in federal possessions and territories. The People were simply too na�ve to know that back then.

Would you be surprised to know that, based on the income of many homeowners, if you were able to keep the amount of tax withheld from you annually, this tax savings would equal the equivalent of 40 acres and a mule in only two years?

DO YOU CARE?

If you care, do your own research and either make a decision to be an Informed Slave or GET OFF THE PLANTATION! Just turn off WWF Smackdown, American Idle, Lost, Survivor, Boston Legal and the baseball game for at least a few days and check these sources:

Income Tax vs. Consumption Tax

income tax … I stand corrected — Honk Kong first imposed an Income Tax in 1947. It has a top rate of 16%, a high personal exemption, and capital gains, dividends, and interest income are not taxed! Certainly not as good as no income tax at all, but a much better system then the one we have here!

Pay Your Income Tax: 1943 Disney Propoganda

income tax Funded and approved by the US Department of Treasury in 1943, this Disney featurette called “The New Spirit” was to encourage every good American to do his “duty” and pay his taxes, which, at this time, were at an all time high. Those who do not wish to pay or don’t pay it gladly are depicted as friends of Hitler and enemies of liberty and democracy.

Contrary to what has been stated on other posts of this film, it was never “banned” by anyone. Not only was it approved by the Treasury Secretary, it received an Academy Award nomination for “Best Documentary Feature.” Even President Roosevelt himself had a hand in approving Donald Duck as the main character.

Federal Income Tax – Why you should not pay

income tax This clip comes from Aaron Russo’s film, America: Freedom to Fascism. You can watch the film online @ http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1656880303867390173

Please learn the truth behind the Income Tax: it was created with the Federal Reserve Act in 1913 – its purpose being to fund the government to pay the interest incurred on government loans from the (private) Federal Reserve. In other words, the income tax is paid to central bankers, and have no gains to you whatsoever.

Learn about how international bankers (such as the Rothschild’s and Rockefeller’s) have come to dominate the world through the control of financial systems, via their ownership of central banking institutions.

But that’s only the beginning…

We have become their slaves, and they desire to form a world-government that will control us all under their supreme authority. And knowing the truth is the only thing that can set us free.

MARCH ON WASHINGTON!
April 15th, 2008

PROTEST THE INCOME TAX AT YOUR LOCAL POST OFFICE!

So long as there is a central bank, you will never be free or prosperous.
