When taxation is forced, one cannot say they live in a free country. Taxation is not optional in this country, therefore this country is not free. Bottom line. If one decides not to pay their taxes, they are threatened with violence and/or prison if they don’t pay. That is point-blank extortion. And since it is being done by an authoritarian government, it is naked tyranny. – Gary Z Mcgee
That is especially true when Americans are being taxed for things they do not see or understand, otherwise known as ‘taxation without representation’ one of the foundational abuses behind the American Revolution. Then ask yourself, if we are paying up to 40% of our yearly income in some cases, why does the US need over 40 billion dollars from Saudi Arabia to help secure America infrastructure? It should both be alarming that Saudi Arabia–the world’s leader in human rights violations–will have a hand in American infrastructure, and, that despite paying higher taxes than ever before, this country cannot seem to survive without foreign aid. These are just a few ongoing issues that are being completely drowned out by anything and everything Donald Trump.
“I mean literally if you turn on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN – it’s nothing but Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump! And very little information about the famines in Syria, northeast Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Yemen. We’ve got to break through all of the smoke. This is not fake news, this is reality.” UN World Food Program Director-General David Beasley told AP in Geneva.
This is clearly becoming a pattern, and that should make anyone paying attention begin to question whether this was the plan all along. When a story as profound as the murder of Seth Rich, and the extremely damning connections to the Clintons and the DNC, is being overshadowed by whether or not Donald Trump discussed one thing or another with Russian diplomats, the reality of the situation becomes clear.
We discuss the Seth Rich story, WikiLeaks, and the collapse of the Russian hacking narrative, Net Neutrality, as well as reveal which group is the largest polluter in not just the nation, but the world, today on TLAV Political Roundtable.
