As Senate considers the “The Senate Squishy” and their “compromise” which means higher taxes ALL AROUND! Whoopeedoo…lets remember some words of wisdom from an great American and a true Patriot said about taxation…
“An unlimited power to tax involves, necessarily, a power to destroy; because there is a limit beyond which no institution and no property can bear taxation.” –John Marshall
John Marshall was telling government (and the people) that they could indeed destroy freedom, capitalism and our very free-market system by over-taxing the people…after all what caused the American Revolution in the first place? Wait…yes taxes, an over abundance of UNFAIR taxes in fact…you see Americans have a dislike for taxes, unless you are part of the nearly 50% of Americans who pay no taxes add to that the 24% of leftists in the country and you can see where Obama got his fallacious 80% of people don’t mind higher taxes. THEY are the ones who think that “taxing the rich” is a great idea because it means more for them…unfortunately that gravy train runs out of gas when the gravy runs out…which is pretty much NOW.
Redistribution does not work at least not for long…Greece, Spain, Cuba, Russia…ANY of those ring a bell?
