Americans are taxed to the 18th degree. We all realize this. We must have a "license," to drive, and to be engaged in any type of business, some of which, require multiple licenses, such as a restaurant. So when you think about it, we own NOTHING!!!! We like to think we "own," real-estate, but we dont. Stop paying your property taxes, and see what happens. So in effect, we are "leasing," our so-called property, through the payment of taxes, from the government. Income taxes are actually a type of licensing fee, permitting you to work at earning an income. Business taxes and sales taxes, are actually an ongoing licensing fee, the government charges the businesses and us with, so that they may "legally,"sell to the public, and for us to buy whatever the business is selling. If you disagree, try not paying the government any amount of income,business, or sales tax, and see what happens. All these taxes and licensing fees, (and there are many not listed here,) are, of necessity, passed onto the end user of goods and services, the American consumer! Personal property taxes license you to own personal property. The list goes on and on. The prices we must pay for fuel, food, clothing, utilities, insurance, etc. are inflated by every type of tax and fee imaginable. It varies from state to state, but Americans pay from 48 cents, to over 55 cents, out of every dollar they earn, for taxes, licensing, and regulatory fees, which are both, seen, and hidden in the prices of goods and services. Americans MUST regain control of our government, and our future!! Its past time for this to be the great Nation it was, before Socialism reared its hidious head. Time to chop the head off the dragon, before it consumes us!
