Thank You Uncle Sam, May I have Another Please?

April 15th, the last day suck it up, and watch your hard-earned dollars to taken from you. It has been one hundred years since the passage of the unconstitutional amendment was passed. The Revenue Tax of 1812 was put into place to help fund the Civil War. As I have said before, the war was much more than just abolishing slavery! A long story made short, thanks to the Progressives and Socialist, not to mention some phony conservatives of the day, got this great devil of an amendment passed.

I have always wondered why we the taxpayer are burden with filing forms and not the government? Why did the feds not go for a Flat Tax? Why? Because it would have limited the influence and control the feds would have over individuals, and the states. It is the same with federal mandated health insurance! It is about control of people and wealth.

This is just my opinion, and a person can spend a lifetime researching and writing on this subject. We are no longer a nation of free-living, independent individualist. We now have a large population of folks who believe the federal government is their god/care giver, and that they are entitled to products and services that they refuse to provide for themselves. Dependency on the government is slavery, something that the Civil War was supposed to abolish.

    It’s bad enough paying taxes, then you have to pay an accountant to help you file.

    Not 1812 but Aug 5,1861, Lincoln imposes the first federal income tax by signing the Revenue Act. Strapped for cash with which to pursue the Civil War, Lincoln and Congress agreed to impose a 3 percent tax on annual incomes over $800. The retired American history teacher is alive and watchful. I don’t mind paying taxes but I do object to taking my money to merely give it away to other people and countries. A bigger resentment is that my pension and social security are taxed and the money that went into these funds were already taxed over the decades.

      Thank you Carl for you awesome input. You are correct. I just chose to use the 1862 tax. Lincoln had a dark side! I don’t mind paying a federal tax if it is used for national defense and to lightly regulate business. But what we have now is nothing short of criminal.

      Right on. I don’t mind paying taxes at all, I am happy to participate in building a great nation. I’m not too keen on supporting extravagant lifestyles of the rich and elected-famous, however. And like you, I’m not a fan of paying taxes on already taxed monies.

    Every year we lose more and more freedom. The slow gradual creeping slavery. The new normal.

    You know, if you do a quick calculation, everyone who pays less than $12K federal taxes per PERSON ($3.8 Trillion federal spending divided by 315 million population) is getting on average more from the government than he or she puts in. That makes about 80% of us dependent on the government.

    Thanks for this great post. Yu saved me a ton of research. I wanted to blog about the income tax law because I remember from somewhere that it is not a law. I’d like to share this by reblogging if I may.

    there was a nation there was a people who felt who did feel, they were lead they were ruled not by truth and honesty, but by greed and selfishness feeling that they were owed so. their children were no longer taught that work responsibility and truth were the best way. no they trained from birth that government the state were those on whom they should depend and place their faith.

    The question of why didn’t they use a flat tax is the most important one in my mind. A flat tax would work so much better. There wouldn’t really be any need to file anything, at the end of the year you get a report from your employer or whatever and see that you made X amount of dollars so you verify you paid whatever the percentage is of it and you are done. There wouldn’t be any need for refunds or anything like that. I think it would be easier, of course I’m not an economist, accountant, or elected official. What do I know about such things?
