What the IRS doesn’t want you to know, and other facts about taxes

Did you know that none of our collected income tax goes to run the government?

Neither did I. But here are 31 Questions and Answers about the Internal Revenue Service.

If you want to know even more about the taxes, here is some info on the history and fairness of them.

And James Madison, although he was nicknamed the ‘Father of the Constitution’, said: “The power of taxing people and their property is essential to the very existence of government.”

Here are some more quotes relating to taxes:

Laurence J. Peter

But then America is a land of taxation that was founded to avoid taxation.

Thomas Paine

What at first was plunder assumed the softer name of revenue.

This post explains where taxes go. And as to what should be cut? Well, why do hardworking Americans have to prop up everyone and everything else with their money? Can’t people just live and keep their own money? The thing is that the people who would really need the money (although would still be taken from others if they did receive the money) don’t get anything. The income tax is only 40% of the federal budget.

But this is the big picture about how all the tax dollars are spent. Not just a pie chart that doesn’t break it down. (Click to zoom in.) And I see many things that can be cut. The ‘Global War on Terror’ for instance. 189.316 billion dollars. Or the ‘No Child Left Behind Act’. 21 billion.

Here you can read an article about what Ron Paul thinks on the situation.

A short excerpt:

Ron Paul has slammed Barack Obama’s claim that reckless government spending and taxation is the only way to alleviate the economic crisis by pointing out that the end of the great depression only came after taxes and spending were drastically cut.

Finally, if you want to know about socialism: one blogger has written about America’s march towards socialism. There are two parts: part 1 and part 2.
