Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What in the world happened? Can you spell "politicians?" And I still have to press 1 for English!?!?!?!?

GO AHEAD - - - BE AN AMERICAN! Send this around the USA at least 100 times!

  1. Thank you for the truth that you have posted in this little bit about taxes. The government needs to keep its greedy littel fingers out of our pies.

  2. We are taxed on every side by huge government, yet, I am a stay at home mom. I have three children who have attended private school education, one still attends and God has always provided ALL our needs. We tithe to our local church and give to other ministries and God's word says if you put Him first you will never lack for anything. People forget to put the Lord first because they choose to put all their money on expensive vehicles, they have to live in the finest, most espensive homes and when it comes time to give to God, there isn't enough to go around. If you are faithful to God, He will be faithful to us. We live in a nice home, have purchased nice vehicles for two of our children and paid for them to attend private schools all on my husbands salary, and no, he doesn't work overtime. The Lord has provided all our needs because we put him first in our lives. The tithe comes first and everything else is taken care of, sometimes miraculously. If we would all learn to lean on God instead of our own way of thinking, God will prove himself to us. We have never gone without anything. The word of God says, "Seek first the Kingdom of God and ALL these things will be added unto you." You will not lack in anything and I can say these things because He has ALWAYS provided for us and blessed us in spite of what the government does to take away. The Lord says to "prove me" that means to take Him at His word and do what His word says and watch and see if He won't come through for you. Give Him a chance, obey His word and watch Him come through for you, I dare you. :) God Bless!

  3. You asked "What in the world happened?". Here's an answer. America "decided", about 125 years ago (Supreme Court decision Julliard vs. Greenman, 110 US 421, March 3, 1884), that the control of our currency was going to be passed to the private bankers against whom our Founding Fathers fought and shed blood. The Federal Reserve-Income Tax act of 1916 merely formalized what had already been conclusively decided years earlier.

    We now have, and have had for nearly a century, intrinsically-worthless paper money, explicitly forbidden by the Constitution to this day. This did NOT begin with the O'Blubberer administration last year, but with the Federal Reserve Bank last century.

    One thing all economists agree upon is that every time a worthless paper dollar is printed ("worthless" being defined as having no gold behind it), there is, as if by an immutable Law of Nature, an exactly commensurate decrease in the value of all other circulating dollars. Thus, if the number of circulating dollars doubles, the purchasing power of each will be precisely halved.

    It can be easily demonstrated that the amount of new money printed is about 5-6% over the circulating total, every year. To demonstrate this, all you have to do is what I do, namely to compulsively keep records of anything and everything whose price has been recorded over long periods.

    Whether you look at the cost of a New York City subway token, a slice of pizza, the hourly labor rate at Toyota, a Slurpy, or a new baseball stadium, or even the value of the Dow Jones Industrial Average – WHATEVER you look at, NO EXCEPTIONS, its purchase price inflates at about 5-6% per year, plus or minus a point or two. You won't find anything which inflates at below 4%, and few things above 6%.

    In some cases, like the case of gold, the price may at times fluctuate wildly, but even gold, over the long run, obeys the immutable 5-6% rule. There are NO EXCEPTIONS.

    How does this affect us? Only people with "leverage" (like the drunks and whoremongers called "Congress") can exact a pay increase of 5% per year. I'm a doctor, and I can't. Labor union members? Forget about it. They're lucky if they get 2-3%, and then only with a crippling strike which more than consumes their gains.

    For the rest of us, the purchasing power of our hard-earned dollars DECREASES at the rate of 5-6% every year, COMPOUNDED ANNUALLY. It's the exact opposite of bank interest – it's a leech, sucking the financial blood out of us individually, and out of the American economy generally. And it is absolutely unstoppable. No act of Congress, "Executive Order", or unconstitutional new law from the Supreme Court can have any effect on this.

    This entirely explains the phenomena mentioned by Patrice. Few can have a house without a mortgage, almost all women must work just to keep the family afloat (and mark my words, child-labor is just around the corner), and retirement at all is becoming unaffordable for more and more Americans each year.

    Every loss in the purchasing power of the American fiat dollar must be compensated by a government handout of some sort. Whether American Freedom survives at all, which seems like a long-shot right now, depends upon how willing Americans are to follow the commands of the Almighty.

    "Love thy neighbor as thyself" is a good place to start, but when your neighbors are Muslims who want you dead, that can be difficult. When you read that "the Jews control America" and your neighbors are Jews, that can be difficult. When your neighbors purport to be Christians, but, like most, they still celebrate the birthday of the Messiah on Saturnalia, and his resurrection on a holiday named after the Phoenician goddess Astarte, that too can be difficult.

    Another good passage is Genesis 12:1-3, "Now the LORD said unto Abram… I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse; and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed". It says "ALL" the families of the earth. Where did we go wrong?

  4. Greetings
    Everyday, I read the articles and commentary posted on WND, ACT for America, and a few other sites. It is from those sites that I stumbled across your blog site and felt compelled to write.
    As the Obamanation’s socialism grows, I become increasingly alarmed at the ungodly direction we are taking in this nation today. It seems unstoppable at this point, and the Democrats have declared they are going to stuff their doctrines down our throats weather we want them or not
    Bearing this in mind, “seeing the handwriting on the wall,” I began to consider my own personal options – relative to surviving.
    Believing in God, and the Constitution, – I am now branded by our government as a dissident, a seditionist, a terrorist. Further, the current administration, (akin to Nazi Germany) is marching rough shod over people like myself suggests that preparations for “hard times” might be wise.
    Once I concluded that I needed to make these preparations for survival - the first thing I realized is that I am woefully unprepared.
    The second thing I realized is that I know nothing what so ever about such preparedness – and thus, gathering information as to what to do, how to do it, is step one.
    In doing so, I found several “survivalist” sites on the internet. A few I discarded, others I bookmarked and refer to in my decision to “get ready for it.”
    The one site I have come to trust the most, www.survivalblog.com suggests many things, not the least of which is living location. And this brings me to my point in writing to you.
    Your lifestyle – and location, is a PERFECTLY selected geography. Live stalk, crops and land for farming and self-sufficiency, isolation from the world with plenty of trees for wood and concealment, natural water supply year round, yet, in spite of your ‘farming’ lifestyle you have up to date communication with the outside.
    The point is – you are perfectly positioned and set up (I suspect this is not just random coincidence – much to the credit of your husband) to survive the coming collapse of America, and the devastation that I am convinced is coming soon.
    You are perfectly set up for whatever may come. YOU WILL be among those to survive the coming horrors.
    But what this means is - when the dust settles and we begin to rebuild a nation – (assuming the socialists fail - history is on the side of freedom and God, thus I believe the dictators are destined to fail) - then it will fall to you and your family to come out of the forests – and lead/teach the people. Most in America today having gone through the public education system, and dedicating 4 hours a day to TV news and propaganda; will NEED your guidance.
    In other words, to whom God gives much, God requires much – and obviously you and your family are richly blessed in many ways. Thus, as I view the world’s news and the “feeling in my bones” as I pray, and view your blog site, I suspect the burden of responsibility for leadership and rebuilding may fall upon you (and your children, who by then will be young adults) when a devastated nation takes its first steps towards rebuilding.
    I simply felt compelled to write and extend to you my hope and prayer of continued prosperity, health and safety, and rich Blessings from the Lord - to you and your entire family. To express to you my hope that all is, and continues to be well with you and your family, and, perhaps to offer some encouragement in your efforts and your lifestyle choices. The sacrifices you make today will pay greater dividends that you imagine – and I fear, sooner than you may think.
    I suspect that those who survive are desperately going to need you – and between now and then, I hope you thrive and prosper so that when that time comes, you are prepared to accept the task that I see as appointed unto you.
