This right here is the key thing. They always push the "taxes are do damn high" on the federal government when it is the states piling up on it. This tax plan would have forced them to lower or get voted out of office.

ding ding ding, the new SALT reform completely shoots anyone in commiefornia who makes over 100k a year, right in the dick. That means a lot of the liberal elites in hollywood are going to see a lot less money.

There is no such thing as an unfair deduction. Deductions for everyone!

Taxation is theft.

Tax cuts are kinda pointless due to not fixing the issue of fiat currency. Now under the gold standard, fuck yea tax cuts.

The taxes that were the catalyst for the American Revolution were NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT WE CURRENTLY PAY.

To be fair, taxes weren't the only reason for the American Revolution.

It's difficult to get it exact, but it's at least 100 times more tax paid today. Think about it, there was no income tax anywhere before 1913.

It's worse when you realize the lunatics who manage the tax money.

They fucking use it to fund genital mutilation.

Not everyone sees it so clearly, unlike us. Which is why I love to use that phrase as often as possible.

We didn't like paying taxes without representation. That's the part you're missing.

well that is technically correct but a misrepresentation of the situation.

  1. The US colonies had their own Assemblies which could raise taxes and had local representation.
  2. The idea to send US representatives to the UK was pretty impractical, a 2-3 month sea voyage, meant that the representative would be cut off from his constituency.
  3. The taxes that were requested were to pay for the defence of the US from the French.

You remember Trump saying how NATO countries should contribute to their own defence? Well the US colonies didn't want to contribute anything.

Did u not read the fucking reply we are paying 100 times more now they didn't even have a fucking income tax back then and if they tried implementing one there would have been a second revolt real quick.. Our great grand parents fucked us over hard core.

It wasn't just taxes, it was taxation without representation in government. Basically #Brexit. The 13 colonies did not feel properly represented as a political entity in the British Empire and so threw a nice rebellion.

Lower taxes are good. But the fucking politicians in the house and senate need to stop borrowing so much so that that they can keep spending so much. We're going into the hole to hell here...not in a good way either. By reducing taxes, we will be falling into the hole to hell even faster. The attitude seems to be: "Fuck it, let the next generation get fucked in the ass"

Now, if the economy grows and they are able to stop increasing the spending, then we'll be fine. The increased spending and widening amount we owe is disturbing.
