Are You Aiding and Abetting the IRS?

i

‘”Aiding and abetting is an additional provision in United States criminal law, for situations where it cannot be shown the party personally carried out the criminal offense, but where another person may have carried out the illegal act as an agent of the charged, working together with or under the direction of the charged party, who is an accessory to the crime.’

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
If try to sit, I’ll tax your seat,
If you get too cold, I’ll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet,
~’Taxman’  George Harrison

“The hardest thing to understand in the world is the income tax.”  Albert Einstein

When asked, in an extremely unscientific poll I have been conducting over the years,  “Why do you continue to pay income taxes when you know these payments are being used to engage in illegal wars on country’s that have never attacked us and to pay the banksters servicing costs on our massive debt that they created with the consent and full ownership of our amoral government ‘leaders’?

This poll found that:
12% said they ‘had no idea’ or ‘did not know’
87.8% said that they had voluntarily paid into the system because ‘they did not want to go to jail’.

I then asked a follow up to those who did not want to go to jail if they knew anyone personally who had gone to jail for not  paying their taxes and their answer was a 100% ‘No!’  I followed this up with a simple question to all of:  Do you know why, how or when the U.S federal income tax system was installed.  That got another 100% response of ‘No’ from all those polled.

Tax Freedom Day is the day that we stop working, beginning from January 1 each year, just to pay our federal income taxes.This year, due to the many increased tax rates on most, Tax Freedom Day is moved back 5 days to April 18th.

So to recap; Every April 15th we voluntarily assess our own wages and earnings into a system we have no idea how, when or why it was created. We work on average for  3 1/2 months just pay into our taxes and this money is used principally to fund war operations against others and pay just the service charges on our  $16 Trillion dollar debt. All because we are ignorant or afraid to go to jail if we don’t pay which directly involves our complicit act of self policing ourselves while perpetuating and annually compounding the problems we most want to solve in this country of too much debt and war, which if eliminated by our refusal to voluntarily pay taxes would end both major problems we face.

Did you know?

100 years ago our nation had no debt, had the wealthiest middle class in the world and only the top 10% paid income tax.  Since that time here are just some of the taxes that have been added:

Sales Tax
Hotel Tax
School Tax
Liquor Tax
Luxury Tax
Excise Taxes
Property Tax
Cigarette Tax
Medicare Tax
Inventory Tax
Car Rental Tax
Real Estate Tax
Well Permit Tax
Fuel Permit Tax
Inheritance Tax
Road Usage Tax
CDL license Tax
State Income Tax
Food License Tax
Vehicle Sales Tax
Social Security Tax

This past November Californians’ voted to increase our sales tax otherwise we were threatened that our public school systems would suffer ‘drastic cuts’, even though none of the tax increases would necessarily go to the schools but into the states General Fund.

In addition to cuts being proposed to our social security system, that we paid into and the allegedly the government has grossly mismanaged, here are more taxes being proposed and already being enacted.

  • ObamaCare’s $1 trillion in total tax increase will hit everything from health insurers, drug companies, and tanning salons to Health Saving Accounts and – eventually – high-cost employer-based health insurance.
  • In 2013 Americans are paying 2% more in payroll tax due to the ending of a temporary exemption
  • Beginning in June, 2013, California drivers will be paying 3.5 cents more in gasoline tax (because we are driving less!  remember the clunker rebates to switch to more fuel efficient cars?)
  • Rural CA residents have been assessed a Calfire tax in 2013 even though we pay property taxes for local fire services.
  • California legislatures are planning on pushing through a gun ownership liability tax
  • Maryland just announced a ‘rain tax’ on residents being called a ‘Storm Management Fee’ directed by the EPA
  • Austin, Texas and many other cities are enacting required “Energy Audits” on homes before they can sell their homes, effectively a tax on the sale of your home, which has its roots in the UN Agenda 21.
  • The United Nations has plans for a global carbon tax on individuals and financial transaction taxes as part of their Agenda 21.

U.S. Income Tax Has It’s Roots in Marxism:

In 1848, Karl Marx declared in his Communist Manifesto that a progressive tax on personal income was one of the 10 essential measures to ensure a communist revolution in an advanced country in order to bring about his fabled “classless society.” Socialist and communist ideas gained momentum in many parts of Europe, and it wasn’t long before they reached America. Various attempts to impose a progressive federal income tax — making the rich pay a higher percentage than the poor — soon appeared in this country. The Revenue Act of 1861 was a federal income tax used to raise revenue to fund the Civil War. It was a flat tax of three percent on annual income above $800. The following year, this was replaced with a graduated (progressive) tax from three to five percent on income above $600 in the Revenue Act of 1862, which ended in 1866.

Interestingly, the progressive income tax was originally backed strongly by the rich themselves. Senator Nelson Aldrich of Rhode Island, for example, a man widely known to be John D. Rockefeller’s “inside man” in the Senate, was a principal proponent of a federal progressive income tax made legal by an amendment to the constitution. This is not surprising, for although the “progressives” who championed the income tax claimed that it would be a tax on the rich and that it would help the little guy, in reality it was largely a tax on the middle class. This is mainly because the wealthy, through the use of trusts and tax-exempt foundations, are able to escape much of their tax burden yet still have great influence and power over business, banking, and government. There was a significant difference between the propaganda and the reality; the populism championed by the progressives and populists was not the “share the wealth” program they portrayed it to be, but a control-the-wealth program. Under the guise of helping the little guy, the elites worked hard to implement an income tax. In keeping with the ideology of its primary backers, the new income tax was to be a “progressive” tax — one in which the tax rate increases as the taxable base income increases.

While certainly not oppressive when compared to today’s income-tax schedule, the new federal income tax represented a radical departure from the type of government Americans had lived under prior to the income tax. It gave the federal government access to potentially huge amounts of revenue that the government could then tap to finance various programs, very much including unconstitutional programs. Of course, even with increased funds available via the income tax, spending money on unconstitutional programs is still unconstitutional, but with the federal government now possessing the means to siphon vast streams of money out of the pockets of the American people into the coffers in Washington, the temptation to tap this resource to empower Washington was clearly too great to resist. The transfer of revenue and power to Washington not only strengthened Washington but also weakened the states, which themselves are republics (not provinces) in our federal system of government and possess powers not transferred to the national government by the U.S. Constitution.

The very fact that the income tax now imposed on the American people is a progressive tax means the tax serves the purpose not only of providing the U.S. government with a powerful means of obtaining revenue, but also enables the government to redistribute the wealth. And with the creation of a de facto central bank (the Federal Reserve, no more ‘Federal’ then Federal Express), also in 1913, the federal government has been essentially freed from budgetary restraints, since it can now simply print money to cover operating expenses if revenue is insufficient.

By 1920, only 12 percent of the adult population paid an income tax. By 1940, that percentage had doubled. In 1942, the “temporary measure” of automatic withholding was instituted but never ended. Withholding gives the federal government the first crack at everyone’s income. The government now takes what it wants and needs for its many projects, most of them unconstitutional, and leaves the income earner the rest. By 1960, more than two-thirds of American adults were paying the income tax, with most of it withheld from every paycheck. By the 1980s, estimates were that 75 to 80 percent of the nation’s adults were paying the tax and that taxes on incomes amounted to 25 percent of all earnings, with taxes from all sources — federal, state, and local — moving above the one-third mark.  (Source)
