Doing a service to humanity, in the US and countries attacked by it at least.

They get around having to fund wars started by the government , corrupt police, and don't pay politicians' salaries. Honestly, is there a better thing they could do? The government is a sickly over-bloated cow anyways, more food would just accelerate the problems we have with it.

Well, the income gap is growing, and that's going to kill the economy, as well as the fact that they should pay taxes at 1960s levels to fund the gov't so we don't screw over everyone else.

Leninism did not intend to abolish government, and it was not intended to be democratic either. These were both by policy.

Haha, and what about the bridges, roads, welfare, schools, street lighting et cetera, all paid for by taxes? Who do you call when your house catches on fire?

You can whine about wars, the government being an 'over-bloated cow' and the police being 'corrupt', but your life is supported by tax-payer money!

Hey I can agree with MGSB for once. Taxes are an abuse very often. People assume the money is going to be used to give them free stuff? Pffft.

He did go a bit extremely though. No Taxes = no government. And that would have several bad impacts on local economies and such.

An income tax is the most degrading and totalitarian of all possible taxes. Its implementation wrongly suggests that the government owns the lives and labor of the citizens it is supposed to represent. Tellingly, “a heavy progressive or graduated income tax” is Plank #2 of the Communist Manifesto, which was written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels and first published in 1848.

RON PAUL SPEECH:

"Could America exist without an income tax? The idea seems radical, yet in truth America did just fine without a federal income tax for the first 126 years of its history. Prior to 1913, the government operated with revenues raised through tariffs, excise taxes, and property taxes, without ever touching a worker’s paycheck. In the late 1800s, when Congress first attempted to impose an income tax, the notion of taxing a citizen’s hard work was considered radical! Public outcry ensued; more importantly, the Supreme Court ruled the income tax unconstitutional. Only with passage of the 16th Amendment did Congress gain the ability to tax the productive endeavors of its citizens.

Yet don’t we need an income tax to fund the important functions of the federal government? You may be surprised to know that the income tax accounts for only approximately one-third of federal revenue. Only 10 years ago, the federal budget was roughly one-third less than it is today. Surely we could find ways to cut spending back to 1990 levels, especially when the Treasury has single year tax surpluses for the past several years. So perhaps the idea of an America without an income tax is not so radical after all.

The harmful effects of the income tax are obvious. First and foremost, it has enabled government to expand far beyond its proper constitutional limits, regulating virtually every aspect of our lives. It has given government a claim on our lives and work, destroying our privacy in the process. It takes billions of dollars out of the legitimate private economy, with most Americans giving more than a third of everything they make to the federal government. This economic drain destroys jobs and penalizes productive behavior. The ridiculous complexity of the tax laws makes compliance a nightmare for both individuals and businesses. All things considered, our Founders would be dismayed by the income tax mess and the tragic loss of liberty which results.

My main gripe is, that there are rich folk who don't pay tax, and get away with it fine, but when poor people don't pay tax, the government go out of their way to fuck them over.

No Taxes = no government.


No taxes doesn't necessarily mean no government, it just means a government that runs on donations or gets its own money through government-owned business. Not all the money government gets are from taxes. (but this is not done)

Wouldn't it be great if just cut out the middle man of rich people and jet the government seize the means of production? Holy crap i think I'm onto something here.

People would all work equally for their government, and the government would distribute the fruit of the labor! Yes perfect! I'll call it Genghisism.

What if we killed multiple birds with one stone?

We raise tariffs, bringing jobs here, decreasing unemployment, meaning less welfare, meaning less taxpayer money to it.

Plus I'd rather feel like I'm doing something wholesome if my life if I manufacture things. Much better than plugging numbers into computers.



We can further reduce taxes by pillaging other countries, create a serf class to till the land, mine, manufacture, ship, produce, and purchase goods, require a check which will be given to the government to run for presidency, eliminate welfare, privatize the military, power, water, and health services of the US, and engage in imperialism and take over and exploit any country that has goods we want. I'm just kidding on that. Would that even reduce taxes?

haha... a government which runs on donations! to funny. You cannot call this government then. It would be something like... a steward?

Privatizing the military is a very good thing too! Even better than privatized prisons!
Imagine the US army as mercenaries! Great! This could bring back some flow to the political developments!

^ This is called a mafia.
In the Basque Country we used to have places uncontrolled by the government, where ETA (a terrorist organization) used to run with donations or a (forced by arms) "revolutionary tax" in some villages.
So now a mafia system would be better than a state system? Not sure.

Or we could just have less of a army you nationalistic dumbasses. I like how when someone proposes anything to lower taxes , a bunch of proud patriots come and start crying that if we're lowering taxes we will privatize everything and anarchy will break lose. Here's a thought: No we do not need to invade every country in the world, so we don't need a big military. That ought to cover the costs of a tax cut nicely, and we can get rid of the red subsidies to businesses too, that would help the liberals who get mad about the wealth inequality (which is caused by the subsidies and favoring people in the market). Does this sound like this will plunge is into anarchy? No. Does it sound like we won't be giving the government our paycheck to molest? Yes. The amount of people who are directly effected poorly by government intervention in the markets plus the government taking a third of your wealth that support the government so much is very high here too so maybe we could cut spending on propaganda films too.
