(NOTE: Before reading this essay, it may be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the mechanics of arguably the most basic building-block element of any economy, the zero-sum labor-for-wages trade/exchange.)
"As the FairTax has gained public support, income tax experts like [fill in the blank] have started throwing the kitchen sink at the proposal . . . Many in Washington have based their careers on the income tax system and object to a simple and transparent tax system because it can't be 'gamed' for profit. The FairTax monthly prebate 'untaxes' spending on the necessities of life and eliminates the exceptions to federal taxes that provide such a lucrative playground for lobbyists... It's time for a tax system that benefits the public and the nation instead of just congressional power players and lobbyists. The FairTax is simply a better way to collect taxes for everyone — except those who profit from manipulations of the tax code." — Ken Hoagland, Communications Director, FairTax.org.
After all the blather from all the self-interested "establishment" liars and assorted other scumbags1, perhaps the two most important things to remember about the Fair Tax are that 1) it actually HELPS THE POOR with a monthly prebate on the necessities of life determined by family size, and 2) it taxes you only on WHAT YOU SPEND instead of taxing you on WHAT YOU EARN.
You, the individual, are thereby left free to 1) produce as many things as possible for yourself without being taxed on your labor as if it was "profit" off of somebody else's labor, 2) retain your 5th Amendment right to not "voluntarily" — on pain of fines, forfeiture and imprisonment, of course, isn't that what "voluntary" really means — rat yourself out to Big Brother regarding how much you earn, and 3) save your money without having either the principal or interest taxed, which makes it possible for laboring classes to build pools of capital with which to go into business for themselves — the American Dream.
If individual freedom is to survive in America, logic dictates that it is absolutely crucial that a national sales tax, known as “The Fair Tax,” be implemented simultaneously as the so-called “Income Tax” is eliminated, and the 16th Amendment is repealed. As radio talk-show host, Neal Boortz (who, along with Congressman John Linder, co-wrote the Fair Tax book) is fond of telling us, implementation of the Fair Tax would represent the biggest shift in power from so-called “government” (our wannabe rulers, like Obama and Hillzilla) back to the grassroots individual in history. As economics professor Walter E. Williams is fond of saying, “Let’s take a look at it.”
For starters, the word “income” — as enforced by the tyrannical IRS with the active assistance of intellectually-corrupt, lying, revisionist-history federal judges, but not defined with specificity anywhere in Title 26, the Internal Revenue Code — is a deliberate, carefully planned fraud strategically designed to hide, and otherwise camouflage and obfuscate, the day-and-night, the life-and-death, difference between being compensated in a voluntary zero-sum exchange for your own labor, and making a profit or realizing a gain off of someone else’s labor. This gigantic cover-up, this immense obfuscation, is entirely evil, and has never been, nor ever will be (until the revolution), openly and honestly talked about by the IRS or the manipulative, deceptive, and power-hungry politicians2 in Congress who created it. But that is for another essay and a different section in this website. As you can easily observe, not even "You-can-help-change-the-world" Wikipedia has discussed the ideas I have discussed in this pro-Fair-Tax essay with any meaningful intellectually honest specificity. Golly gee, I wonder why not?!
The lying, revisionist-history federal judges (there have been but few dissenters) pretend that the 16th Amendment words, “income … from whatever source,” found in the phrase, “Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived,” mean that compensation derived from a voluntary zero-sum exchange for one’s own labor can be constitutionally taxed at the same rate as profit or gain realized off of someone else’s labor. Of course this de facto, entirely unconstitutional, very evil, per se Golden-Rule-violative, and devastatingly destructive policy has never been openly discussed in public with any intellectually honest specificity, because its inherent unfairness and lack of wisdom is self-evident when articulated in clear language.
Should you happen to naively believe that my using the term "liar" to describe federal judges is overly harsh, I challenge you to read U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's remarks ("Constitutional Interpretation the Old Fashioned Way") at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C., on March 14, 2005 about routine judicial interpretation of the U.S. Constitution: "prior to the last 50 years or so, prior to the advent of the 'Living Constitution,' judges did their distortions the good old fashioned way, the honest way — they lied about it." For further evidence, compare the historically accurate truth of Hepburn v. Griswold 75 U.S. (8 Wallace) 606 (Feb 7, 1870) to the infamous anti-freedom revisionist-history lies of Legal Tender Cases of Knox v. Lee, Parker v. Davis, 79 U.S. (12 Wallace) 457 (1870), and Juilliard v. Greenman, 11 U.S. 421, decided on March 3, 1884 promulgated by Ulysses-S.-Grant-packed court majorities. Check out Justice Stephen J. Field's heroic lone dissent in Juilliard. I believe that should prove my point regarding judicial lying for any wannabe-clever, politically correct, constitutionally illiterate potential demonizers (strategic spreaders of propaganda and moral panic for public relations purposes per the tactics of Nazi psychologist Carl Schmitt) of this essay.
Here's what the fascist3, neo-feudalist Taker "government" (aka "political2") classes don't want the Maker productive classes to know: If the employer-owner of a plumbing shop charges a customer $40/hour for one of his employee- plumber's time, but pays pays his employee- plumber $20/hr, the owner of the plumbing shop has realized a $20/hr profit, or gain (aka "INCOME"), from the labor of another person: his employee- plumber. The only loss incurred by the plumbing shop owner was the $20/hr wage he paid his employee in exchange for the labor purchased. Obviously, the plumbing shop owner didn't incur any loss on the extra $20/hr of profit paid by the customer for the plumber's time — it was 100% profit, or gain (aka "INCOME"). To the employee-plumber, however, the $20/hr wage he gets paid by his employer, the owner of the plumbing shop, is COMPENSATION for his LOSS of time, education, effort, and skills. It is a free-will-based voluntary zero-sum exchange in which he receives the COMPENSATION of $20/hr for the LOSS of time, education, effort, and skills he incurred. The only way the employee-plumber's wage of $20/hr of COMPENSATION can be logically (albeit fraudulently) taxed as "INCOME" (aka profit, gain) is if the monetary value of his labor, his LOSS of time, education, effort, and skills, is fraudulently calculated to be ZERO.
In other words, the so-called "income tax," as fraudulently and unconstitutionally enforced by the predatory statist children of hell, deliberately accords ZERO monetary value to a person's own labor. From both a logical, technical, and de facto point of view, that means that human labor is not accorded a monetary value unless another person pays money for it. Therefore, to the purchasers of labor (the employer classes), labor is accorded a monetary value which is deductible as overhead, a cost of "doing business" (which is why common "law" doesn't specifically define the word "business"). But to the owners/sellers of labor (aka the hoi polloi wage-earning employee classes), their labor is accorded by the criminal "income tax" cabal as having ZERO monetary value. In every sense of the word, logical, technical, moral, legal, political, and de facto, that simply means that, under the so-called "income tax" system, THE OWNERS/SELLERS OF LABOR DO NOT "LEGALLY" OWN THEIR OWN LABOR. Hence the term "wage slave", a 100% accurate appellation/euphemism under the satanic and feudal "income tax" system.
Here's how the self-evident unequal protection of law between the buyers and sellers of labor works: The voluntary exchange between the buyers ("employers") and sellers ("employees") of labor is a ZERO SUM exchange. The money paid for the labor is worth EXACTLY the amount of labor paid/exchanged for the money or the exchange could/would not have voluntarily taken place. In the exchange, both the buyer of the labor and the seller of the labor incur a loss. The buyer's loss is the money ("wages") paid for the labor purchased. The seller's loss is the labor (including the inextricable monetary value thereof) paid for the money purchased. Under the current fraudulent, immoral and unconstitutional taxation scheme strategically camouflaged by the deliberately deceptive (and otherwise meaningless) word "income", the buyer's/employer's loss (money equal in value to the labor it is exchanged for) is deductible as a cost/expense of doing "business4". The seller'/employee's loss (labor whose inextricable monetary value is equal to the money it is exchanged for) is not deductible.
It gets worse. Both the buyer/employer of labor and the seller/employee of labor also incur a gain. The buyer's/employer's gain in the exchange is the $20 worth (one hour) of labor exchanged for the money. The seller'/employee's gain is the $20 worth of money exchanged for the labor. The seller'/employee's gain, the $20 worth of money, is fraudulently taxed as if it were 100% profit/gain, when in fact it is equal-monetary-value COMPENSATION for the seller'/employee's loss of labor incurred in the exchange. But the buyer's/employer's gain, the $20 worth of labor (also equal-monetary-value COMPENSATION), is treated as if it had ZERO monetary value, and the buyer/employer is only taxed on the profit/gain/increase (which actually is profit/gain/increase and NOT compensation), if any, the buyer/employer makes off of the $20 worth of labor.
On its very face, on both the gain side and the loss side of the wages-for-labor COMPENSATORY exchange, the government's taxation scheme — which completely obfuscates and ignores the moral and constitutional differences between owning and living off your own labor and buying and living off the "other guy's" labor — constitutes blatant, arrogant, self-evident prima facie discrimination and unequal protection of law which has NO logical/rational connection to any legitimate government purpose. The suspect class is labor, and, were the federal judges not a bunch of classist, elitist liars, precisely because there IS an identifiable suspect class (labor), the so-called "federal question" at issue would normally be examined under what is called the "strict scrutiny" rule. But when America's judiciaries are populated by lying traitors to the U.S. Constitution who are bought and paid for by the Shadow Aristocracy "globalist" arch-criminal bankster elite, citizens who try to stand up against this immense and inexcusable injustice are routinely fined and imprisoned — and in some actual cases, even tortured and murdered.
Regarding the word, "source" (as in "from whatever source"), the money a person has in a savings account is the "source" of the "interest" accruing from it. The "interest" is the monetary profit or gain (aka "income") from the "source" savings. With money, the source itself is never taxed, only the "income" from the source." With wage slaves, their labor IS THE SOURCE, so when their wages, their COMPENSATION for their loss of labor, is taxed, their labor is being stolen, and their "source" itself is being taxed as if it were profit or gain. That constitutes blatant constitutionally-violative, arbitrary and capricious unequal protection of law. But don't try telling that to our corrupt politicians2 lying federal judges, because they couldn't care less about what any wage slave thinks. Like the proverbial "house Negroes" in the metaphoric Grand Globalist's "Tara"-esque vision/plan for humanity — The Great Plantation Earth — they are quite confident in their supreme arrogance, excellent lifetime salaries, fabulous benefits, and generous retirement packages, that the wage slaves, the hoi polloi labor-resource classes, don't understand enough about either economics or politics to have the remotest chance of actually doing anything about the great "income tax" labor ripoff.
Because the first natural law of economics is “whatever you tax you get less of, while whatever you subsidize you get more of,” the gravitational force of the evil “income tax” policy is to encourage everybody (at least the self-perceived- as-clever types) to take advantage of an inherently evil and unfair tax scheme and live off the “other guy’s” labor. The entrepreneurial bourgeoisie have a much easier time seeing and adjusting to the wannabe-clever deception than the simpler hoi polloi labor-resource classes. Of course, the predatory ruling classes know all about the so-called “income tax” deception because they designed and implemented it with the express purpose of benefitting from the "other guy's" labor. It's pretty easy to see why famous French economist, Frédéric Bastiat, said "Government is the great fiction through which everybody endeavors to live at the expense of everybody else."
With all its subsidies, exceptions, exemptions, credits and loopholes for some, and penalties and surcharges for others, the so-called “income tax” is nothing more than a tool of theft and redistribution designed to facilitate “social engineering” for the purposes of buying votes and attaining and perpetuating the One-Ring Power (to rule and steal) of political office. Its gravitational force is towards centralization, collectivism, social divisiveness, individual helplessness and victimhood, and “globalist” economic interdependence. Each individual pays whatever the politicians2 and bureaucrats say he pays, and each individual, in direct violation of the Fifth Amendment right to not bear witness against oneself, is forced to waive all privacy in economic affairs and keep detailed records solely for the benefit of, and control by, the parasite/predator classes. Nothing could be a greater threat to, and enemy of, a level economic playing field and of individual freedom.
In stark, day-and-night, life-and-death (De 30:19), polar contrast, a sales tax encourages and rewards self-sufficiency while it discourages and taxes interdependence. A rich person buys a lot of things made by the labor of other people, and pays a lot of taxes. A poor person makes do, utilizes “hand-me-downs,” grows a garden, produces more things for himself, learns to be more self-sufficient, buys a lot fewer things made by the labor of others, and pays a lot fewer taxes. All individuals pay the same percentage of tax on all the things they buy which were made by the labor of other people, without exceptions. Nobody has to bear witness against himself in economic affairs solely for the benefit of, and control by, the parasite/predator classes. Nothing could be inherently more fair in its concept or its actual social mechanics. Nothing could be a greater facilitator of a level economic playing field and of individual freedom.
Quite often you hear ignoramuses or wannabe-clever manipulators saying “Oh my, but sales taxes are hardest on the poor, and most unfair to the poor.” In the case of the Fair Tax, that is an outright deliberate lie. With the Fair Tax, everybody, including the poor, gets a rebate/refund check in the amount of approximately $400/month which represents the amount that a 23% sales tax would total on the necessities of life for a family of four. If a poor family was so self-sufficient and ingenious as to spend less than the calculated minimum annual sustenance amount, say $25,000/year for the sake of example, the $400+/month refund check would be like a windfall godsend! The $400/month refund to the rich would mean nothing because they would spend that and a whole lot more buying all the mega-expensive luxury items and mansions they wanted. And who cares about that? I wouldn’t want to live in a mansion anyway. Besides, under no circumstances, is the so-called “income tax,” (designed by and for the rich), ever going to cater to the class envy of some of the stupidly entitlement-minded poor anyway. The poor will NEVER control the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, “law” enforcement, and/or the nukes. It just ain’t gonna happen, cousin! No way, no how!
Many patriotic individuals have been persecuted — e.g. former Congressman George V. Hansen for writing his book, "To Harass Our People: The IRS and Government Abuse of Power", e.g. Frederick Tupper Saussy (R.I.P.) for writing "Miracle On Main Street", e.g. former Congressman James A. Traficant, Jr. (see videos below) for changing the burden of proof in tax cases from the "taxpayer" to the IRS — imprisoned, murdered, and even tortured to keep a majority of Americans from understanding the information contained in this essay. So let’s honor bravehearts like George Hansen, Gordon Kahl, Tupper Saussy, James A. Traficant, Jr., and a whole host of others. Let's encourage all our families, friends, neighbors, and other folks we know, to become a Fair Tax activist. It’s long past time for any person who cares anything whatsoever about human potential, individual freedom, fair play, and a level economic playing field to DO something besides complain. Besides the Fair Tax website, there are numerous videos about the Fair Tax on YouTube.com. You can go there and type "Fair Tax" into the YouTube search engine. Following are several direct links: Fair Tax - Dave Ramsey Supports the Fair Tax Fair Tax - Duncan Hunter addresses FT rally Fair Tax - John Linder and Neal Boortz explain it Fair Tax - John Stossel addresses FT rally Fair Tax - Mike Gravel explains FT prebate Fair Tax - Mike Huckabee addresses FT rally Fair Tax - Mike Huckabee explains why FT is a great idea Fair Tax - Movie Fair Tax - Sean Hannity addresses FT rally Fair Tax - Song (Eliminate the IRS) KB Gunn & Boston Tea Party Neal Boortz, one of the authors of the Fair Tax Book, has also written a couple of excellent articles for Townhall. One is titled "Fear of the FairTax," and the other is titled "The FairTax -- The Truth." The problem is, Boortz doesn't seem to fully comprehend the level of evil represented by the arch-criminal global financial elite who have always used such ruses as "mutually assured destruction," "global warming," "the asteroid is coming," "the terrorists are gonna get you," etc., to scare mountains of money out of the non-political laboring classes. Boortz doesn't seem to understand that these sociopathic statist Lex Luthors would not hesitate to drop a nuke or two on American cities and blame the Islamofascist "terrorists," who, very conveniently, just happen to be barbarians in their own right. Anything to maintain their ownership and control of the international currency and tax manipulation machinery.
I have a question for all the intellectually dishonest dolts (they know who they are) on both "left" and "right" who love to demonize anybody who disagrees with their constitutionally illiterate ignorance-based "opinions": Which of the two possible models for society has the best chance for helping the human race achieve its full spiritual and intellectual potential, 1) a never-ending stupid-human pecking order struggle for the political power with which to steal the "other guy's" labor and live off your fellow man, or 2) a "civilized" society based on a written social contract/compact (e.g. U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights) which is based on the principles of self-ownership and self-determination of the individual, and which both the ruling dominant members of the stupid-human pecking order (aka "government") and the hoi-polloi subject citizenry are under equal legal obligation to obey? For me and, I dare say, for any reasonable person of good will, the answer is a no-brainer: #2. If choice #2 is indeed your answer as well (because most people, even dolts, consider themselves to be decent, Golden-Rule-following people), then I respectfully suggest that if there is something about the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights with which you disagree, do the hard political2 work of changing it per Article V BEFORE you start lying, spinning and demonizing those individuals or groups who disagree with your opinions.
Having said all that, be fully aware that, for obvious reasons, the entitlement-minded “government” itself, plus “government” media, “government” schools, “government” churches, and “government” politicians, officers, bureaucrats, employees, friends, families, grantors, patrons, beneficiaries, and assorted entitlement-minded “dole-ites” will all do everything in their power, fighting tooth and nail, dragging their heels kicking and screaming every inch of the way, to keep the so-called “income tax” from being eliminated and the Fair Tax implemented. That explains why so many wannbe-clever, constitutionally illiterate, hard-hearted and intellectually dishonest people so much enjoy demonizing individuals like Joe Stack, an ostensibly decent, hard-working and intelligent man who felt so abused and harassed by the IRS that he finally decided to fly his private plane into the IRS building in Austin, Texas. That's why they imprisoned poor Charles Schenck for daring to hand out a 1st-Amendment-protected flyer titled "Assert Your Rights!" in an effort to encourage young men to resist the draft during World War I. Thanks primarily to an essay by Zechariah Chafee titled "Freedom of Speech in War Time," Oliver Wendell Holmes later repented of his "you can't cry 'Fire!' in a crowded theater" rationale in the Schenck v. U.S., 249 U.S. 47 (1919) decision, to the point of voting with the minority in the similar cases of Abrams v. U.S., 250 U.S. 616 (1919), Frohwerk v. U.S. , 249 U.S. 204 (1919), and Schaefer v. U.S. , 251 U.S. 466 (1920), but to no avail. Schenck is still law, although it has been all but overruled by Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969).
Lastly, always remember to be fully aware at all times that, as Machiavelli warned us in "The Prince," trying to change an established social pecking order is arguably the most dangerous of all human undertakings. But, despite the dangers and difficulties, the cultural war to restore individual freedom and the Bill of Rights in America seems to me to be very much worth waging. Wouldn’t you agree?

Unfortunately, the world is full of self-perceived-as-clever individuals. These self-anointed-as-a-higher-form-of-life control freaks are sick and spiritually lost people for whom the casual assertion of the misleading is a practiced technique. Shaman-like, they speak in ritualistic deception-based sound-byte language. They are moral cyborgs, who absorb environmental data and instantaneously adjust their attitude, their posture, and their message to whatever works and advances their greed-driven agendas. They are human hairballs coughed up by a diseased culture which has embraced corruption and gone stark raving mad. They are evil, serve evil, and are altogether unworthy of respect, much less obedience.
Considering the standard operating behavior of the arrogant manipulative types of “politically correct” people who routinely engage in the politics of personal destruction (including false accusations of threats, racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, homophobia, tax protesting, tax cheating5, hate crimes, hate speech etc.), and, having read “The Art of Political War” by David Horowitz, I am forced to the sad conclusion it would probably be wisest to include the following codicil: This essay is purely a 1st Amendment nonviolent expression of disgust/opinion (sort of like the curl-the-hair-on-the-back-of-your-neck revulsion which happens when you get doggy doo on the bottom of your shoe), and is NOT to be construed as a threat of any kind, express or implied, against any person or property. Nor is this email to be construed as any kind of attempt, direct or indirect, to encourage or solicit any person to violate any federal, state, or local law. Most importantly, it is NOT to be construed under any circumstances as "legal advice".
This essay is strictly (100%) 1st-Amendment-protected educational, political and religious/philosophical speech/opinion - [see Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969) (unanimous court), Meyer v Grant, 486 US 414 (1988) (unanimous court), and United States v. Ballard, 322 U.S. 78 (1944)] - about certain historical FACTS denied and/or obfuscated by a lying, treasonous, revisionist-history, totally-out-of-control, constitution-abrogating, murderous, fascistic3, neo-feudalist federal gubmint and its cronies in the various state and local gubmints. This essay is written in the best historical free-political-speech tradition of the time-honored figurative and hyperbolic philosophical statement, "The king is a treasonous, murderous, tyrannical scumbag1 who desperately deserves/needs to be killed!" End the FED/IRS!

Sherry Peel Jackson is a genuine American hero. She is a former Internal Revenue Service Agent and a former Certified Public Accountant. She was deliberatedly persecuted as a Goebbelsian propaganda strategy by evil One_Ring domestic terrorists in the DOJ and the IRS for willful failure to file an income tax return. She was convicted. On February 14th, 2008 she was sentenced by the lying revisionist-history federal courts to four years in federal prison for failure to file her tax returns.

The Truth About the IRS and Income Tax by Attorney Tom Cryer - YouTube video
WARNING: Be sure to compare what attorney Tom Crier said in the above video and on the websites he mentions, truthattack.org and liefreezone.com, with what attorney Jeff Dickstein — a world-class in-the-trenches constitutional-freedom warrior who has been involved in the tax-honesty movement for some 25 years whom I personally met and spoke with many years ago, and whose opinion I trust to be legally accurate and pragmatically truthful — says in the video immediately below. Dickstein says he has won more federal criminal tax cases than any other person in the world, yet he says he has lost "probably 75-80% of those types of cases he has been involved with. It's not that Crier is incorrect in the law, it's that the fascistic treasonous-to-the-U.S.-Constitution domestic terrorists in the DOJ and the IRS, along with their cronies, the lying revisionist-history federal courts, don't care what the law is. Very few things are more dangerous than trying to take the PROVABLE historical truth/facts of what the intent of the Founders is regarding money and taxation into federal court before a lying revisionist-history federal judge in the utterly naive hope of obtaining legal and moral justice. Winning such a court contest seldom happens, as Jeff Dickstein points out in his lecture.
JEFF DICKSTEIN (lawyer): (at about 5:25 into vid) “All a lawyer means is that you paid a lot of money to a university to be brainwashed that the judges decide what the law is. When I was in law school, we never read the Constitution. We read decisions of judges telling us what the Constitution meant.” (at about 6:00 into vid) "Well, there is no [U.S.] Constitution anymore. It's just an idle word. It doesn't exist. It's been flushed down the toilet. It doesn't exist. There's no 1st Amendment. There's no 2nd Amendment. There's no 4th Amendment. There's no 5th Amendment. There's no 6th Amendment. It just doesn't exist."

1. As I said in the "Welcome" section of this website, (it bears constant repetition): Regarding the words "scum" and "scumbag" as an epithet used in self-defensive demonization against select individuals. Hey, what can I say? It is a long-proven statistical fact that negative political ads work. And since the so-called "left" uses lies, half-truths, demonization and the politics of personal destruction as standard political strategies, failure to engage in a little "turn about is fair play" merely makes it easier for the various assortments of disordered illiterate fascist control freaks to destroy individual freedom. As I said on my blog homepage, "Some folks just think they're smarter than everybody else, a higher form of life than everybody else. So, instead of engaging in good faith discussions about specific ideas, they simply resort to deception, sophistry, unspecificity, undefined terms, manipulation, demonization and the politics of personal destruction AS A MATTER OF PREFERRED STRATEGY to get their little spoiled-brat control-freak way. Such behavior is anathema to intellectual honesty, an open mind, a kind heart, free inquiry, the freedoms of thought and speech, and the free flow of information. It MUST be eternally warred against if humankind is to entertain a realistic hope of ever reaching its full spiritual and intellectual potential." To avoid the violence which is directly related to repression of free speech and the crushing of polite and civil discourse, I believe it is essential to engage in strategic tit-for-tat with wannabe-clever manipulative demonizers by openly calling them what they are: the anti-freedom, anti-Golden-Rule scum of the earth (aka "scumbags"). Accordingly, it doesn't bother me in the least to do so. No less brilliant a person than Jesus of Nazareth himself referred to the scumbags of his day as "hypocrites", "blind guides", "vipers" and "whitewashed sepulchres". To paraphrase Ann Coulter, Jesus was not some moron driving around in a Volvo with a "be nice to people" bumper sticker on it. So, having read The Art of Political War and Other Radical Pursuits by David Horowitz, I don't have any problem with calling reprobate "scum" what it is.
2. Always remember, "politics" = person or group A trying to persuade person or group B to obey the will of A, most frequently for the personal financial benefit of A and to the personal financial detriment (higher taxes) of B. That is why deception = the so-called "art" of politics. That is also why "politician" = professional deceiver, and why "political" = deception-based, or having to do with deception. Everybody is competing for political power to steal labor and money out of the "other guy's" pocket and put it in their own. Politicians get votes by promising to be all things to all people. Because that is a physical impossibility, most of their promises of necessity get broken. Because they know this in advance, they are ALL liars to one degree or another. The king is always the most corrupt person in the kingdom. After all, the first two kings of Israel, Saul and David, were murderers. In my opinion, any person who sincerely wants to be the king is criminally insane and an implacable deadly enemy to individual freedom.
3. Fascism = private economic enterprise under centralized governmental control. — Webster’s New World Dictionary of the American Language, Second College Edition. I would expand that definition: fascism = private economic enterprise under centralized governmental control, in which “government” is used as a “business” tool by private interests. Another way of articulating the same idea is: fascism = private ownership of government.
John Flynn defined the word thusly: “Fascism is a system of social organization in which the political state is a dictatorship supported by a political elite and in which the economic society is an autarchial capitalism, enclosed and planned, in which the government assumes responsibility for creating adequate purchasing power through the instrumentality of national debt and in which militarism is adopted as a great economic project for creating work as well as a great romantic project in the service of the imperialist state.” [As We Go Marching, p. 161, 2nd ed.] — John T. Flynn (1882-1964) American Journalist and Author
"Fascist" = scumbag1 "businessman" who uses the police powers of government (via bribes, special-interest legislation, holding office himself, etc) to corruptly increase profits and eliminate or reduce competition for his (or her) business/es beyond what they would be in a genuinely fair and free marketplace comprised of willing sellers and willing buyers.
MANY Democrats and Republicans are fascists, especially the ones in Congress. To paraphrase Jesse Ventura in a conversation with Willie Nelson and Alex Jones, the DEMS and GOP are like professional wrestling: they pretend to be adversaries in public. But behind closed doors, they're good buddies, hanging out with each other, making business deals and having dinner together at fancy restaurants and at each other homes and mansions.
4. "BUSINESS. The term 'business' has no definite or legal meaning. Connor v. City of University Park, Tex.Civ.App, 142 S.W. 2d 706, 715; it may be an uncertain one. In Frey's Will, 154 Misc. 421, 277 N.Y.S. 269, 272...." ~ Black's Law Dictionary, Revised Fourth Edition. It's not for nothing that "government" or "law" doesn't want to define the word "business"! Wannabe-clever parasites don't want the productive classes to understand the actual mechanics of how their labor is being systematically stolen by the dominant members of the stupid-human pecking order who love to call themselves "government" and their organized thievery "law" and/or "taxation".
5. The favorite argument of the labor-stealing fascist3 neo-feudalists is the so-called "fair share" argument: "Looky, looky! — S/he's not paying his/her fair share of taxes, and everybody else has a moral obligation to do so. Therefore, in our infinite ignorance, naivete and constitutional illiteracy, let's find him guilty and send him to jail where cheaters belong!" The problem with this scumbag1 manipulation is that in a totally corrupt, prima facie unconstitutional, labor-stealing, "fractional reserve" monetary system where infinite amounts of money are literally created out of thin air with computer entries, THERE IS NO SUCH THING as an individual's moral "fair share" of taxes. "Fair share" is a lie, an anti-constitutional illusion, a greed-based self-imposed delusion believed by massively ignorant, constitutionally illiterate sheeple, too many of whom unfortunately wind up as jurors in federal criminal tax trials.ShareThis
