A tool of the statists

One method or tool the statists use to reward their friends and punish their enemies is through the US Tax Code or more officially know as U.S. Code: Title 26 – INTERNAL REVENUE CODE . This seventy-five thousand plus pages of rules and regulations is a plethora of tax breaks and loopholes for friends and punishment for those, who for whatever reason, are not fiends of the ruling oligarchy.  Wall Street Bankers, Hedge Fund Mangers, Oil Companies, Alternative Energy Providers, the non-producers of society, and the ever growing non-profit industry are some of the Oligarchy’s friends that readily come to mind.

The main enemy of the state are the working person who derives an income from a W2 reported salary and forced to surrender a large portion of it to the state. That theft along with deficit financing provide the resources to keep the state going.

Murry Rothbard said, “taxation is theft, purely and simply even though it is theft on a grand and colossal scale which no acknowledged criminals could hope to match. It is a compulsory seizure of the property of the State’s inhabitants, or subjects”.1

Rothbard was correct and if this crime by the state could be stopped we would become a more free, fairer, and prosperous society.
