It's that time of year again when we have to appease the God of Taxes.
Remember, by tithing your earnings to the Tax God he will provide you with a lot of basic services.
At least in theory. It really comes down to the minions who are collecting our donations where the money actually goes.
Tax minions have no morals. Let's get that out of the way right now.
They have a nasty habit of favoring the wealthy and burdening the middle class. Lobbyist parasites bribe the tax minions who take their direction from their masters up the governmental chain.
The wealthy often don't even pay taxes. Like our first illegitimate president Donny Little Hands for example.
We all know the tax code is unfair and far too complicated. There must be a better system where everyone pays their fair share.
Here's two alternatives to consider:
Progressive taxation and a Flat tax
Progressive tax systems have tiered tax rates that charge higher income individuals higher percentages of their income and offer the lowest rates to those with the lowest incomes.
With the Flat tax they generally assign one tax rate to all taxpayers. No one pays more or less than anyone else under a flat tax system.
Both methods have their merits. The current taxation rate we're currently laboring under is not fair to the majority of Americans.
All I'm asking for is a level playing field.
Oh yea! And... I sure would like to see Chump's tax returns.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
