Duh. Effort vs. rewards.
I don't approve it, mind you. I just understand it.
we should stop federal taxes, and really lean into arms dealing and facilitate some wars and start annexing new territories and then imposing some harsh taxes on them
Conservatism is dead. Conserve what?
Not sure why, and even if so I don't think that justifies giving a troll answer as you did.
We did fine without an income tax for most of our history. It's unfortunate that huge numbers of people have become brainwashed into accepting the idea that the federal government gets any piece of our incomes.
Define “fine”. It’s obvious life today is FAR better than say 200 years ago and it’s not even arguable.
You got a mocking response because the idea is so bad and poorly thought out.
Yes, and the federal income tax is not a primary reason for that.
Separately: I think it's more likely than not that we would be better off today if the federal government had never instituted an income tax.
"sufficient to fund federal government expenditures"
Poorly thought out. Again, the success and well being of the people is what’s important.
Also, never said it was primary but certainly necessary.
Easy fix: do away with federal income tax and close the IRS.
What is poorly thought out? Be specific. I made a series of factual statements.
Yes. Obviously, that is not where our disagreement lies.
You're saying it's a sure thing that we would be worse off today overall if the federal government had never instituted an income tax?
See post #53.
It will save $4T. Just cut all the programs that money goes to.
Unless you are a notorious Italian or Irish mobster, then they go after you. Not too many of them around these days.
Fortune 500 companies get audited routinely and the biggest ones get audited while they prepare their return
Rich people hire really good CPA's to make sure they if they DO get audited, they won't get into trouble. The IRS knows this. Poor people do their own taxes and don't have CPA's to fight for them if they get audited.
All true, always has been , always will be..people with money pay good money for good accounting, good accountants know what they are doing And minimize risk to their clients..
Lower income families don’t have the same resources...
Poor people have been saying this forever. Too bad weve been tricked into thinking all us poor folks are good for is lying and whining.
You're right I'm thinking of something else. My brain will catch up and clarify.
Separate names with a comma.
