Letters to the Editor

Letter: Taxes aim – purge freedom of choice

To the editor:

"Let them march all they want as long as they pay their taxes" – Alexander Haig.

The word march could be "protest" or "petition" or even "boycott," and I doubt if this present U.S. Congress would listen. The 1 percent, the globalists, know that high taxes are the means by which they can control the populace and govern this country without a seat at the voting table.  

High taxes mean a loss of freedom and choices for the working middle class. High taxes are a guise to population control. High taxes limit freedom of choice regarding your lifestyle, your right to subsidize only the charities of your choosing. High taxes are a means to control your choice in education. It, step by step, eliminates private schools. Every taxpayer should read Andrew Carnegie's position on wealth. Why? Because our government is the heir to Carnegie's beliefs.

" ... to provide moderately for the legitimate wants of those dependent upon him ... surplus revenues which come to him ... to administer in the manner which, in his judgement, is best calculated to produce most beneficial results for the community.     

"The man of wealth thus becoming the mere agent and trustee for his poorer brethren bringing to their service his superior wisdom, experience and ability to administer, doing for them better than they would or could do for themselves."

And exactly how did Carnegie accumulate this wealth? On the backs of the underpaid laborers, it is said. On what buildings are their names?  

Carnegie's superior wisdom no doubt excluded the right to have more children; to contribute to the building of a church; to send children to a private/religious school; to create a business of one's own choosing; to be self-sustaining. These things can only be accomplished by paying laborers a fair and livable wage and a government that ceases to enact laws that tax an unjust amount of our income. Carnegie feared that, we the people, would use our funds unwisely. He is right.

I ran for office and lost both times to the socialists. Higher taxes anyone?
