Obamacare Hyper-Inflates IRS: The Fourth Branch of Government
More than 200 years ago, enlightened men of a far more superior intellect than anyone in authority today established a framework which is the foundation of all of the American liberties. And for this, precious blood is spilled.
After the monarchy had been expelled, those who had embarked on the struggle for freedom knew that they had to give this brand new nation some strong legs that would carry her far into the future. Those legs comprise the three separate, but equal, branches of government, with the idea being that each branch would keep the others in check. Here is a brief refresher for those who were educated in a government school:The legislative branch writes the law; the executive branch carries out the law; and the judicial branch interprets the law.
In the last 100 years, we have had men (and women) in all three branches who think THEY are of far more superior intellect than anyone who has existed. But when we listen to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid we might experience the same response as waking up next to a bad mistake.
These glittering jewels of colossal brilliance have overstepped their constitutional authority to such a degree that they have instituted a fourth branch of government: The Internal Revenue Service. Its role is to enforce the will of the ruling class on the people through the tax system.The IRS, under the name The Bureau of Internal Revenue, first came into being during the Civil War, when a temporary income tax was put in place to fund the war effort. Although post-war monies were needed to fund the continuing Reconstruction, the tax was politically unpopular and Congress allowed it to expire in 1872.
There were various failed attempts to re-impose the income tax, but it was not until 1913 that the 16th amendment, establishing a national income tax, was ratified. This was mainly due to a successful class warfare campaign, put forth by the progressive movement, which convinced people that only the rich would pay the tax. With the income tax in place, it allowed the cancer known as the IRS to firmly take root.Using a carrot and stick approach, the tax system has been set up so as to allow write-offs and deductions for certain behaviors, and to impose penalties for other behaviors. It is the government’s way of steering the population in the direction they would have us to go. What is worse, the income tax punishes productivity with a higher tax rate, and rewards the lack of it with a tax credit. Common sense would dictate that reward should be reserved for the behaviors we want MORE of, but the ruling class cannot abide a citizenry that is productive and self-sufficient.
Thus, Uncle Sam gifts laziness and sloth as a vote-buying ploy. In fact, half the population pays no income tax, at all.Now, thanks to the overreach of the executive and legislative branches, and the sanctioning of that overreach by the judicial branch, the IRS has been given enforcement power over our health care. When the government controls your health care, the government controls YOU, and the “brown shirts” at the IRS have been given that task. The department has already begun to hire thousands of new agents to handle the additional workload. The tax code, which has already grown to thousands of pages, has systematically ballooned to thousands more.
According to a report by The Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), the average American in 2012 had to work until July 15, deemed the “Cost of Government Day”, in order to earn “enough gross income to pay his or her share” of the cost of government. This includes federal spending, state and local spending, and regulatory costs. The report also claims that if taxes are allowed to increase, as many in the ruling class are clamoring for, the “Cost of Government Day” could extend beyond August. Additionally, if you plan to kick off anytime soon, you had better do it this year. ATR also reminds us that the death tax is set to rise in 2013:
In 2013, the death tax will revert to its antiquated, pre-2001 form. The applicable exclusion amount will plummet to $1,000,000, and the top marginal rate will leap twenty points to 55%. A 5% surtax will also return, to be levied on estates between $10 million and $17 million. This raises the top effective rate of the death tax to 60%.
So then, how can we consider ourselves a free nation if we spend more time out of the year working to provide for the hogs at the trough than we do to provide for ourselves? Or how can we consider ourselves a free nation if the government now has the authority to mandate a purchase, with the failure to do so resulting in a tax? And how can we consider ourselves a free nation if the government keeps more of our inheritance than we leave to our families? Yet, there is so little public pressure put on the politicians to reform the tax system, partially because people like the emotional high of getting a fat check from Uncle Sam at the beginning of the year. It is one more example of behavioral control through taxation.
The ruling class considers all of the wealth as belonging to them, and THEY will decide how much you are allowed to keep. The IRS has been allowed to grow into such a massive behemoth that it makes Michael Moore look like a famine victim, and the tax system has become such a tangled knot that once the consequences of Obamacare are fully realized, the gears of the economic engine will lock up completely and grind to a halt. This does not account for the amount of debt that our country is already shouldering. Our entire way of life is on the verge of collapsing. Of course, the ruling class is salivating at that very prospect, as they despise the free enterprise system and hold the concept of self-determination in complete disdain.
Fundamental tax reform is as vital to the survival of our republic as national defense. The framework of liberty in America is being allowed to decay. Those three legs that the founders steadied her upon have been turned into four. With the IRS being the fourth leg, added to the three corrupted legs, America has now been made to walk like a dog with a limp by the new monarchy.
The American Revolution was fought over taxation, and , if we want to maintain our freedom, the American Restoration must also be fought over taxation.
