[Quote No.47033] Need Area: Money > Tax
"The collection of taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to the public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny. The wise and correct course to follow in taxation is not to destroy those who have already secured success, but to create conditions under which everyone will have a better chance to be successful." - Calvin Coolidge
(1873 - 1933), 30th US President.

[Quote No.47034] Need Area: Money > Tax
"Only the IRS [US Internal Revenue Service - tax collectors] can attach 100% of a tax debtor's wages and/or property. Only the IRS can invade the privacy of a citizen without court process of any kind. Only the IRS can seize property without a court order. Only the IRS can force a citizen to try his case in a special court governed by the IRS. Only the IRS can compel the production of documents, records, and other materials without a court case being in existence. Only the IRS can with impunity publish the details of a citizens debt. Only the IRS can legally, without a court order, subject citizens to electronic surveillance. Only the IRS can force waiver of statute of limitations and other citizen's rights through the threat of Arbitrary assessment. Only the IRS uses extralegal coercion. Threats to witnesses to examine their taxes regularly produces whatever evidence the IRS dictates. Only the IRS is free to violate a written agreement with a citizen. Only the IRS uses reprisals against citizen and public officials alike. Only the IRS can take property on the basis of conjecture. Only the IRS is free to maintain lists of citizen guilty of no crime for the purpose of harassing and monitoring them. Only the IRS envelops all citizens. Only the IRS publicly admits that it's purpose is to instill fear in the citizenry as a technique of performing it's function." - George V. Hansen
(1930 - ), US Congressman (R-ID). Source: To Harass Our People, by George Hansen, (August 1993).

[Quote No.47281] Need Area: Money > Tax
"When thievery is resorted to for the means with which to do good, compassion is killed. Those who would do good with the loot then lose their capacity for self-reliance, the same as a thief's self-reliance atrophies rapidly when he subsists on food that is stolen. And those who are repeatedly robbed of their property simultaneously lose their capacity for compassion." - F.A. Harper

[Quote No.47461] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Foreign development and raising the living standards of all the peoples of the world:] The prerequisite for more economic equality in the world is industrialization. And this is possible only through increased capital investment, increased capital accumulation... The poverty of...[some] nations is due to the fact that their policies of expropriation, discriminatory taxation and foreign exchange control prevent the investment of foreign capital while their domestic policies preclude the accumulation of indigenous capital... It is not a lack of the know how that prevents foreign countries from fully adopting...[advanced] methods of manufacturing, but the insufficiency of capital available... Capitalists have the tendency to move towards those countries in which there is plenty of labor available and in which [the cost of] labor is reasonable. And by the fact that they bring capital into these countries, they bring about a trend toward higher wage rates [and a better standard of living and thereby more power and freedom for the people. In time that can lead to a free market where the consumer is sovereign in the economy and the citizens' votes are sovereign in politics rather than other forces]!" - 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.47908] Need Area: Money > Tax
"Stripped of its academic jargon, the welfare state is nothing more than a mechanism by which governments confiscate the wealth of the productive members of a society to support a wide variety of welfare schemes! A substantial part of the confiscation is effected by taxation. But the welfare statists were quick to recognize that if they wished to retain political power, the amount of taxation had to be limited and they had to resort to programs of massive deficit spending, i.e., they had to borrow money, by issuing government bonds, to finance welfare expenditures on a large scale." - Alan Greenspan
Economist who was the Chairman of the US Federal Reserve central Bank Board from 1987-2006. Quote from his work, 'Gold and Economic Freedom', 1966.

[Quote No.47927] Need Area: Money > Tax
"In progressive societies the concentration [of wealth] may reach a point where the strength of number in many poor rivals the strength of ability in the few rich; then the unstable equilibrium [wealth and income discrepancy between rich and poor] generates a critical situation, which history has diversely met by [government intervention creating statist] legislation [taxation] redistributing wealth or by [populist] revolution distributing poverty. [Another alternative - usually ignored - is to provide to all true free-market capitalist wealth building knowledge and opportunities to put it to use within a supportive political, social and economic environment.]" - Will Durant
prolific American writer, historian, and philosopher.

[Quote No.48050] Need Area: Money > Tax
"Three-fifths to two-thirds of the [US] federal budget consists of taking property from one American and giving it to another. Were a private person to do the same thing, we'd call it theft. When government does it, we euphemistically call it income redistribution, but that's exactly what thieves do - redistribute income." - Walter Williams

"I favour the policy of economy not because I wish to save money, but because I wish to save people. The men and women of this country who toil are the ones who bear the cost [taxes] of the government. Every dollar we carelessly waste means that their life will be so much the more meagre. Every dollar that we prudently save means that their life will be so much the more abundant. Economy is idealism in its most practical form." - Calvin Coolidge

[Quote No.48746] Need Area: Money > Tax
"Sometimes the law defends plunder and participates in it. Thus the beneficiaries are spared the shame and danger that their acts would otherwise involve... But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them and gives it to the other persons to whom it doesn't belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. Then abolish that law without delay ... No legal plunder; this is the principle of justice, peace, order, stability, harmony and logic." - Frederic Bastiat
(1801-1850) French economist, statesman, and author. He did most of his writing during the years just before -- and immediately following -- the French Revolution of February 1848. Source: 'The Law' by Frederic Bastiat, 1850.

[Quote No.49513] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Appropriate, empathic support for the poor and a public safety net for the unforeseeable and unavoidable, must always be balanced against inadvertently creating perverse incentives that disempower the poor and discourage the able:] In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer. There is no country in the world where so many provisions are established for them; so many hospitals to receive them when they are sick or lame, founded and maintained by voluntary charities; so many alms-houses for the aged of both sexes, together with a solemn general law made by the rich to subject their estates to a heavy tax for the support of the poor. Under all these obligations, are our poor modest, humble, and thankful; and do they use their best endeavours to maintain themselves, and lighten our shoulders of this burthen? — On the contrary, I affirm that there is no country in the world in which the poor are more idle, dissolute, drunken, and insolent. The day you passed that act, you took away from before their eyes the greatest of all inducements [incentives] to industry, frugality, and sobriety, by giving them a dependance on somewhat else than a careful accumulation during youth and health, for support in age or sickness. In short, you offered a premium for the encouragement of idleness, and you should not now wonder that it has had its effect in the increase of poverty." - Benjamin Franklin
(1706-1790) US Founding Father. Source: 'On the Price of Corn, and Management of the Poor', London Chronicle, November 29, 1766.

[Quote No.49659] Need Area: Money > Tax
"When it is possible for people to vote on issues involving the transfer of wealth to themselves from others, the ballot box becomes a weapon with which the majority plunders the minority. That is the point of no return, the point where the doomsday mechanism begins to accelerate until the system self-destructs. The plundered grow weary of carrying the load and eventually join the plunderers. The productive base of the economy diminishes further and further until only the state remains." - G. Edward Griffin

[Quote No.50546] Need Area: Money > Tax
"No man in the country is under the smallest obligation, moral or other, so to arrange his legal relations to his business or property as to enable the Inland Revenue [tax department] to put the largest possible shovel in his stores. The Inland Revenue is not slow, and quite rightly, to take every advantage which is open to it under the Taxing Statutes for the purposes of depleting the taxpayer's pocket. And the taxpayer is in like manner entitled to be astute to prevent, so far as he honestly can, the depletion of his means by the Inland Revenue." - Lord James Avon Clyde, King's Counsel
(1863 – 1944) James Avon Clyde, Lord Clyde, KC DL - was a Scottish politician and judge. Clyde was called to the Scots Bar in 1889, and appointed a King's Counsel (KC) in August 1901. He was later Dean of the Faculty of Advocates from 1915–1918. He held office briefly as Solicitor General for Scotland in late 1905. He was the unsuccessful Tory candidate for Clackmannanshire and Kinross-shire in 1906. He sat as Liberal Unionist Member of Parliament (MP) for Edinburgh West from 1909 to 1918 and Coalition Unionist member for Edinburgh North from 1918–1920. He was appointed a Privy Counsellor in 1916. He was also appointed to the Dardanelles Commission. He served as Lord Advocate from 1916 to 1920 in the Coalition Government. He was appointed to the bench and served as Lord Justice General and Lord President of the Court of Session from 1920 to 1935, with the judicial title Lord Clyde. During this time Lord Clyde gave this famous quote (in taxation circles) in the case of Ayrshire Pullman Motor Services v Inland Revenue [1929] 14 Tax Case 754, at 763,764. He was Lord Lieutenant of Kinross-shire, and Chairman of the Trustees of the National Library of Scotland from 1936. His eldest son James Latham Clyde, Lord Clyde later also became Lord Advocate and Lord Justice General.

[Quote No.52227] Need Area: Money > Tax
"'Taxes are what we pay for civilized society.' The famous quote by US Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. is inscribed above the entrance to the headquarters of the [USA's Taxation Department called the] Internal Revenue Service. Most people don’t have a clue what he meant, or in what context the statement was made. They simply parrot it around to justify the state’s racketeering behavior. The logic is as twisted as saying 'war is the price we pay for peace' or 'debt is the price we pay for recovery.' They’re all logical fallacies, and assertions backed by zero objective evidence. There’s not much that’s civilized about confiscating people’s assets at gunpoint and spending it on bombs, drones, and wars. In fact, taxes in the United States are not even a civil matter– they’re an entirely criminal matter. As nearly every tax communication duly informs us, you can be thrown in jail for failing to file a form. This is not how a ‘civilized society’ conducts itself. At the time when Justice Holmes wrote that statement, the average tax rate in the Land of the Free [USA] was 3.5%. Today they keep raising taxes, and they keep printing money, because they’ve built an unsustainable system that depends on debt, overconsumption, and war in order to maintain itself." - Simon Black

"All socialism involves slavery.... That which fundamentally distinguishes the slave is that he labors under coercion to satisfy another's desires. The relation admits of many gradations. Oppressive taxation is a form of slavery of the individual to the community as a whole.

"[Private] Property is the fruit of labour; property is desirable; is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich and, hence, is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless [wealth-less] pull down the house [wealth] of another, but let him labor diligently and build one [wealth] for himself." - Abraham Lincoln
Lawyer and U. S. President.

[Quote No.55178] Need Area: Money > Tax
"The greatest of Egypt's industries -- wheat, glass, papyrus, linen, oils, and unguents -- essentially constituted royal monopolies. On those commodities Cleopatra profited doubly. The sale of oil to the crown was taxed at nearly 50 percent. Cleopatra then resold the oil at a profit, in some cases as great as 300 percent. Cleopatra's subjects paid a salt tax, a dike tax, a pasture tax; generally if an item could be named, it was taxed. Owners of baths, which were private concerns, owed the state a third of their revenue. Professional fishermen surrendered 25 percent of their catch, vintners 16 percent of their tonnage. ...Into her coffers went approximately half of what Egypt produced." - Stacy Schiff
From her book, 'Cleopatra: A Life', 2010, pages 91 and 92. Cleopatra VII Philopator, (69 BC - 30 BC), known to history simply as Cleopatra, was the last active pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, only shortly survived by her son, Caesarion as pharaoh.

[Quote No.55190] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Government fiscal - tax and spend - and central bank monetary - interest - policy:] A robber who justified his theft by saying that he really helped his victims, by his spending giving a boost to retail trade, would find few converts; but when this theory is clothed in Keynesian equations and impressive references to the 'multiplier effect,' it unfortunately carries more conviction." - Murray Rothbard

[Quote No.55237] Need Area: Money > Tax
"A great civilization is not conquered from without, until it has destroyed itself from within. The essential causes of Rome’s decline lay in her people, her morals, her class struggle, her failing trade, her bureaucratic despotism, her stifling taxes [!], her consuming wars." - Will Durant
