  1. I know it wont happen cause the sheeple and too scared but what do you guys think?

  2. anyone on the government payroll would shit their pants immediately.
  3. That would be one of my dreams come true.

    The state would disappear when nobody tribute to the state at all. (This right here, needs to happen, has to happen.)
  4. Alot of workers get it taken out directly from paycheck. It would have to be corporate america wouldnt it?

    Sheeple my ass.
  6. We would instantly lose 41% of tax revenues roughly. That would not be good, our tax revenues are already low enough.
  7. That 41 percent gets to stay in yours and other people's pockets. That is a good thing.

  8. You're forgetting that it would increase the debt tremendously and we would have to cut an absurd amount of government to account for the 41% decrease in tax revenues.

    Also 40% of income taxes are paid by the top 1% of earners, so actually it would benefit the rich more than the vast majority of the country.
  9. You know, not everyone hates paying taxes the way you do.

    Sometimes there are things in life you just have to do. All cultivating such a hatred for the unavoidable parts of life does is make you an angry, bitter, unlikeable curmudgeon. YOU KIDS GET THE HELL OFF MY LAWN!!!

    I guess accepting that makes me a sheeple.:rolleyes:

    If (big if) every American stopped, they'd have a tough time collecting, but they can always just print money.


    No, Renaldo. Some of just see a racket for what it is. We don't all get upset about it.

    I know, I know. Some libertarians make a distinction between coerced action and voluntary action. It logically follows that we're all cranky, old curmudgeons yelling at children. :rolleyes:

    income tax is actually about 33% of government revenue. 1.5 trillion of the 4.5 trillion revenue. It wouldnt be good, but we could slowly phase out the IRS and we would be fine with 3 trillion per year.

  12. Jesse has sunglasses on, that's legit.
  13. They should seperate the country into halves with and without taxes.

    A couple of years later the no tax side will get invaded because they don't have a military.
  14. Is it just me, or does it seem like Jesse snorted a line right before this interview? :eek:
  15. Seemed extremely biased and not backed up, he did a lot of conspiracy sounding stuff and asked idiots if theyd read the IRS handbook cover to cover essentially, which is rediculous.He said a bunch of shit he didn't prove, in fact, that was the majority of the video. Im not very moved.
  16. The IRS would raise taxes; S.& P. would downgrade our debt rating and the media would blame the tea party.

  17. what happens if obama gets trampled by unicorns?
    what happens if bigfoot storms the pentagon?
    what happens if the illuminati put fluoride in our water to poison us slowly over 60 years?
    what happens if the vampires and werewolves team up to wage war against humans?

    ...oh, I'm sorry, that's all insane bullshit that doesn't matter because it will never happen.
    carry on.
  18. Our government currently operates on a trillion dollar deficit annually, and has done so for the last 3 years. Paying income taxes doesn't seem to be the problem when it comes to the government paying it's bills.

    We could end the overseas wars and eliminate the income tax, it would do a lot to boost our economy to be quite honest. Instead of propping up authoritarian regimes in Afghanistan and Iraq, the money could be used here at home, and without an income tax Americans have that much more cash to bring home and spend as they choose.

    The only argument I hear for the income tax is basically 'Well how would the government pay it's bills without the revenue it brings in from income taxes?' It seems as though the idea hasn't occurred to these people that the government is spending enormous amounts of money on things that are totally unnecessary.

    As far as reducing the national debt, 14 plus trillion dollars is mathematically impossible to pay, if you want to try and repay that debt you will end up with a situation that makes Greece's austerity measures look extravagant. Not to mention unfunded liabilities, can't wait till those IOU cards are sent out.
  19. edit: wrong post. i have nothing to say.
