[Quote No.61411] Need Area: Money > Tax
"To take from one [by force rather than to only encourage voluntary charity], because it is thought his own [luck and] industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare [redistribute] to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal [luck,] industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his [luck and] industry and the fruits acquired by it." - Thomas Jefferson
an American Founding Father who was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and later served as the third President of the United States from 1801 to 1809. This is a quote from a letter he wrote to Joseph Milligan in 1816.

[Quote No.61447] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Tax for redistribution:] I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and duty of the General Government ought to be extended to the relief of individual suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public service or benefit. The friendliness and charity of our countrymen can always be relied upon to relieve their fellow-citizens in misfortune. This has been repeatedly and quite lately demonstrated. Federal aid in such cases encourages the expectation of paternal care on the part of the Government and weakens the sturdiness of our national character, while it prevents the indulgence among our people of that kindly sentiment and conduct which strengthens the bonds of a common brotherhood." - Grover Cleveland
Letter to the House of Representatives', 1887.

[Quote No.61918] Need Area: Money > Tax
"The theory of the IRS [US Internal Revenue Service which collects US taxes] is rather repugnant to me because the assumption is made that I, the government, owns 100% of your income and I permit you to keep 5%, 10% or 20%. You're vulnerable, you've sold out. The government can take 80% if they want, which they did at one time." - Dr. Ron Paul
(1935 - ) American physician, US Congressman (R-TX), US Presidential candidate. Source: Candidates@Google interview, July 13, 2007.

"Have we the courage and the will to face up to the immorality and discrimination of the progressive tax, and demand a return to traditional proportionate taxation? ... Today in our country the tax collector's share is 37 cents of every dollar earned. Freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp." - Ronald Reagan

[Quote No.61920] Need Area: Money > Tax
"The people of the U.S. owe their Independence and their liberty, to the wisdom of descrying [criticizing] in the minute tax of 3 pence on tea, the magnitude of the evil comprised in the precedent [i.e. 'no taxation without representation' and 'no unjust taxes', etc]. Let them exert the same wisdom, in watching against every evil lurking under plausible disguises, and growing up from small beginnings [i.e. 'progressive taxation', where people are charged different prices for the same public services - which is all taxes are - simply because of how much the government believes it can get from them by force if that should become necessary - in similar fashion to simple theft or Mafia 'protection rackets']." - James Madison
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President. Source: James Madison's 'Detached Memoranda,' ca. 1817 W. & M. Q., 3d ser., 3:554--60 1946.

[Quote No.61924] Need Area: Money > Tax
"The difference between a kleptocrat and a wise statesman, between a robber baron and public benefactor, is merely one of degree: a matter of just how large a percentage of the tribute extracted from producers is retained by the elite, and how much the commoners like the public uses to which the redistributed tribute is put... Make the masses happy by redistributing much of the tribute received, in popular ways. This principle was as valid for Hawaiian chiefs as it is for American politicians today." - Jared Diamond
Quote from his book 'Guns, Germs, and Steel'.

[Quote No.61928] Need Area: Money > Tax
"There's been one underlying basic fallacy in this whole set of social security and welfare measures [high tax and spend to redistribute], and that is the fallacy - this is at the bottom of it - the fallacy that it is feasible and possible to do good with other people's money. That view has two flaws. If I want to do good with other people's money, I first have to take it away from them. That means that the welfare state philosphy of doing good with other people's money, at it's very bottom, is a philosophy of violence and coercion. It's against freedom, because I have to use force to get the money. In the second place, very few people spend other people's money as carefully as they spend their own." - Milton Friedman
Famous 20th century economist

[Quote No.61946] Need Area: Money > Tax
"It is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high today and tax revenues are too low, and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the tax rates. [This is the same principle as what works in supermarkets: lower mark-up and profit per item but then sell more items to achieve greater sales and more profits overall.]" - John F. Kennedy
Democratic politician who was US President.

[Quote No.61969] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Flat versus progressive tax rates:] Thirty-four [US] states have progressive income taxes. A handful of states — including Florida, Texas and Washington — have no state income tax. The rest have a flat tax, including Illinois, Michigan and Indiana. What's the best course to take? Well, that debate has been going on for decades. Federal income taxes are assessed based on a progressive model, although the trend over the past 40 years has been to have fewer and flatter rates. ... Illinois is surrounded by six states — Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri and Wisconsin. The Land of Lincoln [Illinois] levies a flat 3.75 percent state income compared with a flat 3.3 percent tax in Indiana and a flat 4.25 percent rate in Michigan. The other states — Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin and Kentucky — all have multiple rates that increase with an individual's income. But their higher rates start at very low income levels. Iowa has nine rates — from 0.36 percent up to 8.98 percent. Its first rate that exceeds Illinois' 3.75 flat tax is 4.5 percent and applies to incomes up to $13,986 (for the 2016 tax year). It hits 6.48 percent at $23,311, 6.8 percent at $31,081 and 8.98 percent at $69,931 and up. Missouri has 10 separate rates. At 4 percent, it exceeds Illinois' flat 3.75 percent rate beginning at $5,001. Its highest rate — 6 percent — applies at $9,001. Kentucky has six rates — 2 percent up to 6 percent. Its 4 percent rates applies to income over $4,000, 5.8 percent to income over $8,000 and 6 percent rate to income over $75,000. Wisconsin imposes four rates — starting at 4 percent for incomes from zero to $11,120 (filing single). It increases to 5.84 percent for incomes up to $22,230, 6.27 percent on incomes between $22,230 and $244,750, and 7.65 percent on income exceeding $244,750. Our neighbors with progressive income taxes impose rates well in excess of those in Illinois. But larger states like California and New York — states Illinois politicians mimic on policy issues — impose even steeper rates. California imposes nine rates, starting at 1 percent and climbing to 12.3 percent. Its 4 percent rate starts at $19,001, while its 8 percent rate starts at $41,629. It hits 9.3 percent at $52,612 and climbs steadily for six-figure earners from 10.3 percent for $268,750 and up, to 12.3 percent for incomes over $537,498. New York is similar, imposing eight rates that start at 4 percent and climb to 8.82 percent. In other words, its lowest rate — 4 percent — already is higher than Illinois' single 3.75 percent rate. New York's 5.9 percent rate starts at $13,850, its 6.65 percent rate at $80,150." - The News-Gazette

"[Limited, small government with minimal taxes:] A tax cut means higher family income and higher business profits and a balanced federal budget.... As the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues. Prosperity is the real way to balance our budget. By lowering tax rates, by increasing jobs and income, we can expand tax revenues and finally bring our budget into balance." - John F. Kennedy

[Quote No.62030] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[No 'government' taxation without representation-consultation-consent of the 'governed': In 1215 AD, a dramatic confrontation of the English King John by a group of rebel barons resulted in the Magna Carta, which attempted to limit the power of the king - 'upper government', including, among other things, requiring the king to consult with these barons - 'lower government' regarding taxes or payments to the king. In the ensuing years, that group became what we now know as the Parliament, a word that means 'consultation'. In the early years, parliament was an event or occasion rather than an institution, and had no fixed or predetermined membership or meeting dates. But it met with increasing frequency because kings had a voracious appetite for funds:] The forum for [King] Edward I's political bargaining [for taxes and other matters] was Parliament. Medieval parliaments were an occasion, rather than a permanent institution, summoned at the king's will, and dismissed once their work was completed (usually after a few weeks). They were essentially a development of the thirteenth century, though arguably their roots stretched as far back as the Anglo-Saxon witan. Under Edward's predecessors, parliaments had been summoned only sporadically; and the reformers' Provisions of Oxford had demanded that three parliaments be held every year, at fixed dates. Edward went a long way to meeting this, summoning parliaments more frequently than any other medieval King of England. After his return to England in 1274, he regularly held parliaments twice a year, at Michaelmas (30 September) and Easter. There were interruptions, in 1277 and again in 1282-3, when Edward was busy waging war in Wales, and in 1286-9, when he was absent in Gascony. After 1293, the timing of parliaments became somewhat more erratic, though there was at least one, and frequently two, every year until 1302. For the next three years, Edward decided he could manage without parliaments, but they were resumed in Lent 1305, followed by parliaments that autumn, in spring 1306 and January 1307. The composition of Parliament was still very flexible. There was no fixed parliamentary peerage, and individual magnates, bishops, abbots and royal servants were summoned at the king's discretion; this body would eventually become the House of Lords. The other body was the representatives: the knights of the shire (usually two elected from each county) and the burgesses (usually two elected from selected towns, plus four from London); together, they would eventually become the House of Commons. The election of representatives from the shires was first ordered by Henry III, in 1254; and burgesses were first summoned by Simon de Montfort in 1265. In the first half of Edward's reign, representatives were summoned only to a minority of parliaments, depending on the business to be discussed. They were, for instance, summoned to the Shrewsbury Parliament of Michaelmas 1283 to witness the treason trial of the Welsh magnate Dafydd ap Gruffudd; but once they had witnessed Dafydd's execution, they were dismissed, and the council conducted the rest of the Parliament's business at the nearby manor of Acton Burnell, belonging to the chancellor, Robert Burnell. However, representatives were almost invariably summoned when a grant of taxation was required. And from the 1290s, as Edward required such grants more frequently, so they were summoned more frequently; increasingly, indeed, they were summoned even when no taxes were to be requested. By the end of the reign, precedent had hardened into custom: Parliament was settling into a regular form, and the principle had been firmly established that lay taxes could not be imposed without the consent of the Commons in Parliament. Grants of taxation were necessary because the crown's own regular income (roughly £27,000 a year, derived from sources such as crown lands, feudal dues, the profits of justice and customs) was sufficient only to cover routine peacetime expenses. Any additional expenditure required additional income. Henry II, Richard Coeur de Lion and King John had all resorted to racking up feudal dues and auctioning justice to fund their wars. However, such arbitrary exactions aroused bitter resentment, leading to the rebellions of John's reign, and the outlawing of such practices under Magna Carta. [The primary form of direct taxation, known as an 'aid,' was used] initially to fund the crusades; and each of Henry's successors had raised similar aids, usually to fund wars. However, such a tax could not be imposed arbitrarily, and required consent (as Magna Carta had laid down); and by [his son] Edward's reign, it was customary to obtain such consent from a parliament. Henry III had been notably unsuccessful in this regard, failing to obtain consent for any grants of taxation between 1237 and 1270, when a twentieth was granted for Edward's crusade. By contrast, Edward wrung more such aids from his subjects than all of his predecessors put together. For the first eighteen years of his reign, his spending was relatively modest, and he raised only two aids (one of them to pay for the Welsh war of 1282-3); but between 1290 and 1306, he collected no less than seven aids, bringing in altogether nigh on £400,000 [in a country where the total supply of money was likely only £1 million]." - Andy King

[Quote No.64280] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[The Communist Manifesto outlines Marxism's central tenets. I quote them here so you can understand why democracies see them diminishing individual freedom and personal responsibility and requiring even more acceptance of government interference in individuals' lives and choices:-] 1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. 2. A HEAVY PROGRESSIVE OR GRADUATED [RATHER THAN A FLAT, EQUAL FOR ALL - REGARDLESS OF RACE, RELIGION, CLASS, SITUATION, CAPACITY TO PAY, ETC -] INCOME TAX. 3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance. 4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels. 5. Centralisation of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly. 6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state. 7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan. 8. Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture. 9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country. 10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc." - Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
