No One Has a “Fair Share” of Taxes

This article was reprinted in LewRockwell.com and raises some good questions about our taxes.  Should we vote on the recipients of our taxes as we do on political leaders?

I’ve printed some of the best sites for clear and honest media on the sidebar to the right.  Since all of these sites, including this one, are being censored by the people who want to control you, it is important that you help to disseminate these alternative websites that carry the side of the story that gets no press.

There’s nothing fair about the coerced funding of unlawful, wasteful and morally repugnant pursuits

A recurring theme in national tax debates is the idea that everyone should pay their “fair share” of taxes.

While that aspiration’s validity is widely taken for granted, the stark reality is there’s no such thing as a “fair share” of federal taxes.

To understand why, let’s first scrutinize what’s meant by “fair.” When paired with “share,” the most fitting definition is “reasonable, right and just.”

If the United States government were limited to its only morally sound function—protecting rights, liberties and lives—perhaps one could entertain the theoretical notion of a “reasonable, right and just” share of the cost.

However, that ideal is far from today’s grim reality, as tax revenue is used to assault rights, liberties and lives of Americans and people around the world—to say nothing of the sprawling waste and cronyism associated with a 2021 budget of $6.8 trillion.

So tell me:

  • What exactly is my “fair share” of the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), which enforces economic sanctions that purposefully inflict suffering on innocent civilians in foreign lands?
  • What’s my fair share of the tyrannical practice of civil asset forfeiture, in which cash and other property is seized from citizens without any requirement to file charges?
  • What’s my fair share of the $1.2 trillion allocated in 2021 for the unconstitutional Departments of Housing and Urban Development, Labor, Education and Transportation, and Small Business Administration?
  • What’s my fair share of the cages in which the government confines people for choosing to intoxicate themselves with a plant or a powder rather than a bottle?
  • What’s my fair share of the several trillion dollars spent on the overwhelmingly pointless war in Afghanistan or the even more catastrophic invasion and occupation of Iraq?
  • What’s my fair share of so-called “Covid relief” money used to bail out fiscally irresponsible state and local governments and pay unemployed people more than they were making on the job?
  • What’s my fair share of the jaw-dropping $81 million the CIA paid to two depraved psychologists who crafted the agency’s immoral and ineffective post-9/11 torture program?
  • What’s my fair share of the unjust prosecution of journalist Julian Assange for publishing documents that revealed wrongdoing and embarrassed powerful politicians?
  • What’s my fair share of the $3.8 billion handed over to the Israeli government this year—with every one of those dollars violating a U.S. law?
  • What’s my fair share of the $1.6 trillion cost of the snakebit, contractor-enriching F-35 fighter jet program—which the Pentagon already wants to replace with something else?
  • What’s my fair share of the ongoing salary of the U.S. Central Command’s General Kenneth F. McKenzie, who betrayed his oath to the Constitution by carrying out President Biden’s unlawful orders to bomb Syria?
  • What’s my fair share of $1.5 million spent encouraging eastern Mediterranean youth to stop smoking hookah?

Anticipating objections, please note that the moral standing of federal income taxation isn’t buttressed by whatever few authorized, proper, efficient and beneficial undertakings it finances.

Let’s say your homeowners association does a fine job providing basic services and maintaining common facilities, and you contentedly pay your annual “fair share” of $2,500.

However, the HOA then announces it will:

  • Spend $80,000 to impose unemployment, malnutrition and the degradation of medical services in a neighborhood across town
  • Give a contractor friend of the HOA president $200,000 to do $50,000 worth of sidewalk work
  • Pay two men $90,000 a year to torture suspected car burglars and vandals

Shrugging off your objections that the proposed new undertakings are immoral, corrupt, wasteful and unauthorized by the HOA bylaws, the board informs you that—using the same allocation method as before—your dues have doubled to $5,000.

“You may not like everything we’re doing now,” they say, “but don’t forget—some of the money goes to plow snow and maintain the swimming pool. You benefit from that.”

Given how half the money will be used, do you think one can rationally insist it’s only “fair” that you pay the $5,000?

For the record—and the benefit of our government monitors—I pay every dollar demanded by the federal tax code. I pay not because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s the coerced thing to do. And if the lawless, immoral HOA threatened to lock you in the clubhouse basement if you didn’t fork over the $5,000, I’m sure you’d pay them too.

But, like me, you’d thoroughly reject the idea that there can be anything “fair”—that is, reasonable, right and just—about your share of the coerced funding of unlawful, wasteful and morally repugnant pursuits.

The Pandemic That Wasn’t: The Truth from the Front Line

It’s very clear that there is not and has never been a pandemic worthy of lockdowns, masks, hysteria and wall to wall fear-mongering by the major media.

Nor has there ever been a need for a rushed ‘vaccine’.   Millions of us in the U.S. and around the world have marched and protested to get our lives back.

We have been ignored by the players in the deep state.   Why?  What is their real game plan?

The attached article and video by Dr, Mercola and Ronnie Cummins, President of Organic Consumers Association, will help to explain what has happened.  I’ve included snippets but the real article is worth reading.

Story at a Glance

  • Something very unusual happened in 2020. For the first time, doctors around the world were actively discouraged from helping, and prevented from saving, their patients
  • Esteemed doctors and medical facilities have developed effective treatment protocols for COVID-19, including Harvard, Johns Hopkins and Emory, yet all been suppressed and censored in an apparent effort to cause as much suffering and death as possible
  • Anne Garner, attorney and founder of New Mexico Stands Up! is filing a number of groundbreaking lawsuits on behalf of the American people to reestablish and protect rights and freedoms.

Shocking Statistics Ignored

Anyone who has looked at the U.S. federal vaccine adverse events reporting system (VAERS) will be struck by the shockingly high number of serious injuries and deaths occurring after receiving the COVID-19 “vaccine.”

Many of these occur within the first 24 to 48 hours after taking the vaccine, which ought to raise automatic questions. Yet the timing of these injuries and deaths are ignored, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration insists that none of them has any relation to the vaccines,19 which simply isn’t believable.  …..

Side Effects Skyrocket

These numbers are skyrocketing by the day. As of April 23, 2021, the total number of adverse reports had jumped to 118,902, 12,618 of which were serious and 3,544 of which died.20 While shocking as is, the real numbers are undoubtedly even higher, as VAERS is a passive surveillance system that relies on voluntary reporting.

……..

Attempts to Save Lives Suppressed

As noted by McCullough during the roundtable discussion, something very unusual happened in 2020. For the first time, doctors around the world were actively discouraged and prevented from saving their patients. There was “an enormous, complete, pervasive, steadfast suppression of any attempts to help patients with COVID-19,” he says.

He points out that esteemed medical facilities have developed effective treatment protocols for COVID-19, including Harvard, Johns Hopkins and Emory, yet these have all been suppressed and censored.

Willfully Inflated Death Counts

Fritz, a certified death reporting clerk who has worked for years assisting doctors and acting as an interface between funeral homes and state and federal reporting agencies, is now helping families correct death certificates that inaccurately list COVID-19 as the cause of death.

March 24, 2020, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a COVID alert that some say has led to significantly inflated and therefore fraudulent death counts.
