Leftists always claim to be on the side of victims, the poor, and the marginalized. Often these so-called victims are criminals, the worst elements of our society, who are sociopathic in behavior, e.g., substance abusers, and are unable to function in normal society. Some Christian leftists claim that since Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor”, these poor are the true church. They are the focal point of God’s love and care, not the “rich”. And you, because you are middle-class or “rich”, you belong to the oppressors. It doesn’t matter how many good jobs you provide and how many families depend on you, you are an abuser.
When you turn the tables on these leftists and claim, “I am a victim”, they ignore you, mock you, claiming that you are an extremist or mentally ill. But those of us who pay taxes are being robbed regularly by government. We work hard and we risk our capital, and the government expects its pound of flesh and strips us of our wealth, and then gives it to the “poor”–such as the banksters or the people who refuse to get a job and call their welfare cheque their “pension”. This is abuse and we are oppressed victims. We are like the people in biblical times called the Am haEretz, the people of the land, who were oppressed by Roman tax collectors.
Consider that Charlie Engle went to prison for mortgage fraud while not a single bankster went to jail. I’d sure love to put my mortgage broker in jail, but I’m sure he’s still free. I won’t mention his name to protect the guilty, but he received over $5000 in fees for his claim that my brother’s business could earn more than three times its historical cash-flow in SBA loan papers for a commercial building that he couldn’t afford. As my brother’s partner, I lost a lot of money on that deal. Yet Engle goes to jail, and the big fraudsters are free. And so are the Congressmen who pass the unjust laws and receive sweet-heart loans from the banksters.
Today I read an essay on “Morality and the IRS” which claimed that many people are so frightened and demoralized by their treatment at the hands of IRS that they commit suicide. Indeed, it doesn’t take long to find stories to that effect. Joe Stack who flew his plane into a IRS building in Austin, TX, left a public suicide note explaining that the IRS drove him to self murder–and the leftists who run the media call those who sympathize with Stack “extremists in the patriot movement“. One IRS agent testified to the Senate Finance Committee in 1997 that she knew of at least five suicides but thought that the number could be much higher. If the IRS threatens a person with prison and fines, or steals from their bank accounts and garnishes their pay cheques, then it can really cause a lot of domestic havoc, marital discord, and personal suffering. I know. My own wife is tired of hearing of my woes and is not above threatening me. Such tribulations could lead the weak among us to Selbstmord.
The socialists want this. They want big government that takes care of us cradle-to-grave. They begrudge even our little savings accounts, such as the TFSA, where we are allowed to gain interest without taxation–even though the pathetic returns from interest accounts don’t even keep up with organized government robbery called “inflation”. And yet government does a very bad job of providing services, and we would be much better off if they would just get off our backs and let us fend for ourselves.
The IRS–and probably every other revenue service in the world–is no better than the mafia. Consider that American citizens are required to pay taxes to the USA no matter where in the world that they happen to live. Non-residents cannot receive US healthcare, grants, education, or whatever the service might happen to be, because they don’t even live in the United States. But this taxation is justified because they receive “protection” from the US government. It makes me think of how Richie Aprile offers protection to Beansie (See video below: viewer discretion is advised because of foul language and violence). Yeah, the US government has the right to tax me here in Canada because it is protecting me from all the bad guys out there who want to harm me or steal from me. Wait a second, the only ones who are constantly threatening me work for the government. You see! The government has become a criminal organization and I am victim. Well, excuse me IRS sirs. I am now under the protection of Canadian organized crime. In order to make that clear, I’ve lost my right to live in the United States of America. Poor Beansie, Tony Soprano didn’t protect him from Richie. Hopefully, the Canadian mob boss will do a better job for me.
