Waiting for a Tax Cut

Whenever you hear of tax “reform,” think of a shell game, or the re-arranging of chairs on a sinking ship. America is in dire need, not for tax “reform,” but of genuine tax “cuts.” Government revenues, spending and debt have to shrink. Don’t hold your breath.

Paying Lip Service to Tax Reform is like talking about bringing Reform to Income Inequality, we clearly see how well that has worked out. All this talk of Tax Reform is pretty much HOLLOW, if the Electorate fails to grasp that All Federal Spending, whether financed by Taxes or Debt, forcibly removes Resources from the Private Sector and of course Private Citizenry. Thus, all Government Spending is in essence a form of Taxation. Therefore, cutting Income and other Taxes without cutting Spending merely replaces one type of Taxation with another. Instead of directly paying for the Woolly Mammoth Government we… Read more »

Since mega corps love govt, and the rich (the founders were rich businessmen) created it in the first place, they should pay for it and their laws and regulations should only apply to them, not us.

Every time they propose tax cuts or reform of the tax code, the opposite occurs. More taxes and more tax code.
They have no trouble giving themselves a pay raise.

Exactly. This country could use some major help. But then again this country was built off of the backs of the citizens but they just refer to us as taxpayers. Do you see the problem there? They've robbed us blind and will continue to do so so long as we are too broke to fight back legally or too sick from their poison chemicals to physically pick up on our 2A rights.

Read "Taxation is Robbery" by Frank Chodorov. Taxes are an aggression against inalienable property rights and so should be abolished. However, any movement towards abolition, like cuts, should be welcomed. William Lloyd Garrison, in the 1830s, said that while slavery should be abolished immediately, he knew it would not happen immediately.

I'm starting to think there's an inherent mistake being made by everyone mentioning "jobs" and complaining about "wages" and "jobs." Maybe less and less humans are required as middlemen between the business owner and consumer, combined with as population rises, there's more supply of labor, even skilled labor due to education. No one mentions the # of people in the upper class is increasing, and I feel it's due to entrepreneurs and the internet's giving the freedom to reach billions of people with a $500 device.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. I hope these are steps that will continue any path toward liberty. Thank you Ron for keeping it real. You are my hero.

Dr Paul you crushed it in the last rant there. You're exactly right, taxes solidify a state! That's why countries acquire central banks and power of the purse. A piece of papers value is set by the basic fact that you have to pay taxes with that currency. So you have to acquire that currency. THEIR currency.

Which begs the question, what is government good for?

In Leviathan, Hobbes argued that only a strong monarchy would keep society civilised. I think that's garbage.

What is the relationship between the Federal Reserve and the connected rich?

Anyone? I'd really like to know.

The country is bankrupt! The federal government can not go bankrupt barring stupidity. The federal government has the power to coin money so it doesn't need a single taxpayer's dollar to spend.

Typical of the classic debt spiral our government is incurring debt at an exponential rate. The national debt almost doubles for every 8-year presidential administration. The debt nearly doubled under Bush. The debt nearly doubled under Obama. And now the debt is going to double under Trump. Fiddling around in the margins is not going to make any difference. Unfortunately at this late date there isn't an easy solution. It would be like a person who makes $100,000 a year who has $200,000 in credit card debt deciding not to eat out once a week to pay off their credit… Read more »

Get rid of the income tax on wages. Income tax is for gains. When I get a paycheck it's because I worked for it with my blood sweat and tears. It was not a gain it's an even exchange.

Is Ron saying no to tax cuts proposals? Gov. expenses are out control. Why should taxpayers continue to suffer for it? I can't even afford local gov. policies changes to compensate for increasing homeless and illegal populations.

The #1 problem with our government is too much sending. Too high taxes is the #2. Just because a bill addresses problem #2 and not #1 doesn't mean we shouldn't try it.

The Welf and Este families were the same clan that ruled in Northern Italy and Germany with ancestry from the old French dynasties like the Burgundian family. The colors burgundy and royal purple are symbols used by royalty since ancient Phoenicia as purple was the most expensive color to produce. Many of the top bloodlines have ancestry from the House of Burgundy like the Savoy family who ruled in Northern Italy and they intermarried with the Este family which are also from Northern Italy. Welf is where the term Guelph comes from and this noble faction were wealthy merchants that sided with the Papacy. The House of Este ruled in Modena,… Read more »

Agree with all of this. But any time they are going to do a tax cut we need to support it! The spending can be talked about in a different conversation.

This comment is off-topic! I appreciate almost everything Ron Paul and others of similar persuasion! How is Rand doing? This is very disappointing! Is his wife taking his place in the senate chamber, trying to keep McCain from getting us into some war in Africa?

The Us Fed is the stumbling block to all tax cuts, JFK tried to take the stollen meat out of the salivating croc mouths but failed.
Trump has a good chance to win this competition only if the Zion Media stops spreading its irrelevant and trivial comments agains Trump's endeavours.
