[Quote No.55522] Need Area: Money > Tax
"Should a robber break into my house, and with a dagger at my throat make me seal deeds to convey my estate to him, would this give him any title? Just such a title, by his sword, has an unjust conqueror, who forces me into submission. The injury and the crime is equal, whether committed by the wearer of a crown, or some petty villain. The title of the offender, and the number of his followers, make no difference in the offence, unless it be to aggravate it. The only difference is, great robbers punish little ones, to keep them in their obedience; but the great ones are rewarded with laurels and triumphs, because they are too big for the weak hands of justice in this world, and have the power in their own possession, which should punish offenders." - John Locke
'The Second Treatise of Civil Government', 1690.

"[Philanthropy versus taxes:] There are people in need of help. Charity is one of the nobler human motivations. The act of reaching into one's own pockets to help a fellow man in need is praiseworthy and laudable. Reaching into someone else's pocket is despicable and worthy of condemnation. " - Walter E.

"Justice requires that you should not place [without informed individual choice and consent] the burdens of one man on the shoulders of another man, even though he is better able to bear them. In plainer words, that you should not make [force] one set of men pay for what is used by another set of men." - Auberon Herbert

[Quote No.56086] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Libertarian government would say:] We protect you from aggressions against your rights and property but we don't otherwise give you free stuff. You're entitled to your liberties; to engage in private, voluntary charity and commerce, to deal with each other peacefully; to live as you choose so long as you each do no harm to another. But we in government will not rob Peter [tax those we disfavor] to pay Paul [redistribute to those we favour, and in the process increase our power over everyone's life and property and therefore necessarily the size of the government's political bureaucracy]." - Larry Reed

[Quote No.56087] Need Area: Money > Tax
"The empirical evidence today is overwhelming that, as [Charles de] Montesquieu observed two centuries ago, 'Countries are well cultivated, not as they are fertile, but as they are free' [found in his book, 'The Spirit Of the Laws', 1748]. Nations possessing the most economic freedom (and the smallest governments) have higher rates of long-term economic growth and are more prosperous than those that engage in socialistic and redistributive practices. The countries with the lowest levels of economic freedom also have the lowest standards of living. Free countries and their people are the greatest charitable givers, whereas on net balance, socialist ones are decisively on the receiving end. Why is this relevant? Because you can't redistribute anything to anybody if it's not created by somebody in the first place, and the evidence strongly suggests that the only lasting thing that socialist and [tax for] redistributive arrangements do for poor people is give them lots of company." - Larry Reed

[Quote No.57084] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[The economist, John Maynard Keynes, who is beloved by the left for promoting the theory that governments should increase their deficits by spending more in economic downturns to increase aggregate demand and so reduce unemployment, also wanted to make it clear that the governments' tax policies should be guided to the right level as to not discourage incentive and therefore income. Keynes believed that government should strive to maximize income and therefore revenues. Nevertheless, the left, including US Democrats, demonize that as 'trickle-down economics.' For example:] Nor should the argument seem strange that taxation may be so high as to defeat its object [of increasing government revenue for spending programs], and that, given sufficient time to gather the fruits, a reduction of taxation will run a better chance, than an increase, of balancing the budget. For to take the opposite view today is to resemble a manufacturer who, running at a loss, decides to raise his price, and when his declining sales increase the loss, wrapping himself in the rectitude of plain arithmetic, decides that prudence requires him to raise the price still more and who, when at last his account is balanced with nought on both sides, is still found righteously declaring that it would have been the act of a gambler to reduce the price when you were already making a loss." - John Maynard Keynes

"People, especially politicians and bureaucrats, should:- 1-- carefully consider what governments can do better than free markets and therefore should do and at what costs that tax should cover; 2-- then they should study the Laffer Curve which graphs the relationship between rates of taxation and the resulting levels of government revenue, including the point at which increasing tax rates actually reduces tax revenue, by discouraging work, hurting the economy, and encouraging tax avoidance; 3-- finally they should consider how best to raise the government costs - whether flat or progressive tax schedules are best." - Anonymous

[Quote No.58364] Need Area: Money > Tax
"After the 16th Amendment [to the US Constitution] was ratified, an income tax was imposed starting in 1913 with rates ranging from 1 percent to 7 percent with the top rate applying only to incomes in excess of $500,000. By 1916 that top rate had risen to 15 percent, on income in excess of $2,000,000. The top rate exceeded 90 percent at its peak in the early 1950s. The first 1040 form -- instructions and all -- took up only four pages. Today there are some 4,000 pages of tax forms and instructions. American workers and business are forced to spend more than 5.4 billion man-hours every year figuring out their taxes. Since those hours could be put to a more productive use, and almost surely would be in the absence of today's [1995] incomprehensible tax code, the result is a large dead-weight output loss of some $200 billion each year. ... The IRS [Internal Revenue Service] now has more enforcement personnel than the EPA, BATF, OSHA, FDA, and DEA combined. With its 115,000-man workforce, it has the power to search the property and financial documents of American citizens without a search warrant and to seize property from American citizens without a trial. It routinely does both. Economist James L. Payne has written a most revealing analysis of the IRS, a 1993 book entitled 'Costly Returns'. He arrives at a stunning conclusion, the total cost to collect our federal taxes, including the effects on the economy as a whole adds up to an amazing 65 percent of all the tax dollars received annually. The U.S. tax system, says Payne, has produced hundreds of thousands of victims of erroneous IRS penalties, liens, levies, and tax advice. In answering taxpayer questions, for example, the IRS telephone information service has in previous years given about one-third of all callers -- as many as 8.5 million Americans -- the wrong answers to their questions. A 1987 General Accounting Office study found that 47 percent of a random sample of IRS correspondence -- including demands for payments -- contained errors. Incredibly a GAO audit of the IRS in 1993 found widespread evidence of financial malfeasance and gross negligence at the agency. The IRS could not account for 64 percent of its congressional appropriation!" - Dr. Lawrence W. Reed
(1953-) President of the Foundation for Economic Education. Source: Taxes and Tyranny, THE UNREPORTED NEWS, August 27, 1995.

"According to the Tax Foundation, the average [US] American worker works 127 days of the year just to pay his taxes.

"The income tax was new to the U.S. in 1913, and by 1929, although it took a maximum 23.1% bite, that was only at the $1 million level. The average family's income then was $2,335 ... there was still no Social Security tax, no state income tax, no sales tax, and no estate tax. Furthermore, most people in the country didn't even pay the income tax because they earned less than the legal minimum or they didn't bother filing. ... Roosevelt was able to raise the average income tax from 1.35% to 16.56% during his tenure - an increase of 1,100%." - Doug Casey

[Quote No.58586] Need Area: Money > Tax
"... as all history informs us, there has been in every State and Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing and governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance [i.e. 'rob Peter to pay Paul'], and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the people's money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever ..." - Benjamin Franklin

"One of the most insidious consequences of the present burden of personal income tax is that it strips many middle class families of financial reserves and seems to lend support to campaigns for socialized medicine, socialized housing, socialized food, socialized every thing. The personal income tax has made the individual vastly more dependent on the State and more avid for state hand-outs. It has shifted the balance in America from an individual-centered [free market capitalist] to a State-centered [crony capitalist, even socialist] economic and social system." - W. H. Chamberlin

"[Communal property is the basis of communism:] The experience that was had in ... the taking away of private property, and the possession of it in community, by a commonwealth ... was found to breed much confusion and discontent; and retard much employment which would have been to the general benefit.... For the young men that were most able and fit for labor and service objected that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children, without any recompense.... The strong man or the resourceful man had no more share of food, clothes, etc., than the weak man who was not able to do a quarter the other could; this was thought injustice.

"[Small, limited government, low taxes and free markets:] To the extent that a society limits its government to policing functions which curb the individuals who engage in aggressive and criminal actions, and conducts its economic affairs on the basis of free and willing exchange, to that extent domestic peace prevails. When a society departs from this norm, its governing class begins, in effect, to make war upon the rest of the nation. A situation is created in which everyone is victimized by everyone else under the fiction of each living at the expense of all." - Edmund A. Opitz
(1914-2006), the Rev. Edmund A. Opitz was a Congregationalist minister, a Foundation for Economic Education staff member, who for decades championed the cause of a free society and the need to anchor that society in a transcendent morality. He was one of the few voices in the 1950s through the 1990s calling for an integrated understanding between economic liberty and religious sensibility. He was the founder and coordinator of the Remnant, a fellowship of conservative and libertarian ministers.

[Quote No.60372] Need Area: Money > Tax
"I'm never quite sure what you mean by consensus politics. I believe that what most people want in their lives, is what the Conservative Party wants to have for them. I believe that our policies are fundamentally common sense policies. Just let's take taxation for an example. Wherever I go I hear enormous resentment about the amount which people are paying out of their own pay packet in tax. And, this goes right across the income ranges. Socialism started by saying it was going to tax the rich, very rapidly it was taxing the middle income groups. Now, it's taxing people quite highly with incomes way below average and pensioners with incomes way below average. You look at the figure on the beginning of a pay slip, sometimes it can look quite high, look along the slip to the other end, and see how many deductions you've had off, those deductions have increased enormously under Socialism ... Public expenditure, which they always boast about, is financed out of the pay packet in our pockets. People are saying that they really think too much is being taken out of the pay packet for someone to spend on their behalf, and they'd rather be left with more, and it's now well-known that Socialist Governments put up taxes and Conservative Governments take them down. It's part of our fundamental belief giving the people more choice to spend their own money in their own way." - Margaret Thatcher
(1925-2013) British Prime Minister (19791990). Source: 1976 Feb 5, TV Interview for Thames TV 'This Week'.

[Quote No.60379] Need Area: Money > Tax
"Mr. Speaker, in 1848, Karl Marx said, a progressive income tax is needed to transfer wealth and power to the state. Thus, Marx's Communist Manifesto had as its major economic tenet a progressive income tax. Think about it, 1848 Karl Marx, Communism.... I say it is time to replace the progressive income tax with a national retail sales tax, and it is time to abolish the IRS [Internal Revenue Service - it collects taxes], my colleagues. I yield back all the rules, regulations, fear, and intimidation of our current system." - James A. Traficant, Jr.
(1941- ) U.S. Representative from Ohio

[Quote No.60412] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Morality and ethics:- Good ends do not justify bad means:] The desire to help those less fortunate does not justify the denying of the rights of others to a life of freedom from force or fraud. [i.e. Robbing the 'rich' to give to the 'poor' is still robbing! The rich can only be persuaded - not forced or defrauded!!]" - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

[Quote No.60481] Need Area: Money > Tax
"Government is necessary, but the only rights we can delegate to government are the ones we possess. For example, we all have a natural right to defend ourselves against predators. Since we possess that right, we can delegate authority to government to defend us. By contrast, we don't have a natural right to take the property of one person to give to another; therefore, we cannot legitimately delegate such authority to government." - Walter E. Williams

[Quote No.60493] Need Area: Money > Tax
"There are people in need of help. Charity is one of the nobler human motivations. The act of reaching into one's own pockets to help a fellow man in need is praiseworthy and laudable. Reaching into someone else's pocket is despicable and worthy of condemnation." - Walter E. Williams

[Quote No.60526] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Voluntary philanthropy and charity versus forced taxation and redistribution:] We may fully endorse the religious and ethical precepts that declare it to be man's duty to assist his unlucky brethren whom nature has doomed. But the recognition of this duty does not answer the question concerning what methods should be resorted to for its performance... No civilized community has callously allowed the incapacitated to perish. But the substitution of a legally enforceable claim to support or sustenance for charitable relief does not seem to agree with human nature as it is... The discretion of bureaucrats is substituted for the discretion of people whom an inner voice drives to acts of charity!" - Ludwig von Mises
[1881 1973], an Austrian-American economist, historian, philosopher, author, and classical liberal who had a significant influence on the modern free-market libertarian movement and the Austrian School of economics.

[Quote No.60528] Need Area: Money > Tax
"A key difference between big [taxing and giving] government and small [taxing and giving] government is who does what for whom: big government is like the bully that forcefully takes fish from the successful fisherman and gives it to the hungry and feeds them for a day but then must repeat this coercive theft each day; small government is like the wise teacher who teaches the hungry to fish so they can feed themselves each day!

[Quote No.60689] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Small, limited government:] A very good case can be made, on moral as well as economic grounds, for a system in which the individual is required to stand on his own feet, not to lean on the state for handouts. Character, resourcefulness, capacity are formed and developed in [creative and persistent] struggle with obstacles, not in waiting passively for benefits from outside." - William Henry Chamberlin
(1897 - 1969), American historian and journalist.

[Quote No.60710] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Small, limited government and government deficit spending, where government spends more than it receives in taxes, by borrowing the difference in the form of treasury bonds:] I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our [U.S.] Constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government to the genuine principles of its Constitution; I mean an additional article, taking from the federal government the power of borrowing. I now deny their power of making paper money or anything else a legal tender. I know that to pay all proper expenses within the year, would, in case of war, be hard on us. But not so hard as ten wars instead of one." - Thomas Jefferson
Letter to John Taylor, November 26, 1798.
