“This ‘tax’ is really a very uneconomical method of collecting money and a serious threat to the individual citizens.
“Income tax has been continually used to ‘get’ people against whom no charge could be proven.
“It cuts the money off before it can be invested or used in the country.”

     One of the Russian objectives is to make a US public rejection of  “brush wars” by reason of the resulting oppressive taxation. So it is being accomplished very nicely.

     Now you can’t have much faith in any country, be it England or France or the US which taxes its citizens via a dossier-collecting income tax czar. The true ruler of every citizen including those at the top would be that bureau one had to report to or else. When income tax gets up to one collector per taxpayer and interferes with one’s ability to live, and when inflation sweeps away all one’s savings, the population is likely to say that it’s not worth serving, not worth supporting and that any insurgent group would furnish a better government.

     Henry Cabot Lodge’s* one-time boast that “with modernly armed armies no citizen revolt could ever succeed.” That, of course, supposes that the Army remains loyal to the politicians—and armies seldom do when the country has no cause and the pay won’t buy anything any more.

     Income tax is dead against the original US Constitution. Since its adaption in England there have been only depressions.

     This “tax” is really a very uneconomical method of collecting money and a serious threat to the individual citizens.

     Income tax has been continually used to “get” people against whom no charge could be proven.

     It cuts the money off before it can be invested or used in the country.

     It denies expansion to commerce and inhibits trade.

     If a revolutionary wanted to set a country up to antagonize its citizens, shatter pride in their government and prepare the ground, he would advise putting in income tax and then year by year insist it became more onerous.

     So the West is getting itself into severe “economic trouble.”

     Yet the US just had a record produce year and England just had a record export year.

     Any commie could tell them that the real wealth of a nation is its production and natural resources. Any other economist knows this. But apparently the governments don’t get the word somehow.
