Taxes In “Land Of The Free” Overtake Cost Of Food, Clothing, And Housing…Combined

As we’ve covered here time and again, thanks to the advent of property tax, it’s impossible for an American to actually own a home in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA. We’re all renters. We are all serfs. The State owns every home in the land.

If that wasn’t bad and sad enough, we “free, brave” Americans now pay more in taxes than we spend on food, clothing, and housing combined.

As reported by The Washington Examiner:

“A tax advocacy group on Wednesday revealed that Americans spend more on taxes than their whole budget for food, clothing and housing.

The Tax Foundation, in its annual report on when the nation as a whole has earned enough to pay its taxes, announced the date as April 24.

The report’s key findings include:

— Collectively, Americans will spend more on taxes in 2016 than they will on food, clothing, and housing combined.

— Americans will pay $3.3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.6 trillion in state and local taxes, for a total bill of almost $5.0 trillion, or 31 percent of the nation’s income.

— Tax Freedom Day is one day earlier than last year, due mainly to the Protecting America from Tax Hikes Act of 2015, which made several business and individual tax cuts permanent.

— If you include annual federal borrowing, which represents future taxes owed, Tax Freedom Day would occur 16 days later on May 10.”

This is the price of public schools.

This is the price of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and a globe-dominating military industrial complex.

This is the price of government managed lives.

By making the State our god in practice and empowering it accordingly, we have become slaves.

Proud slaves, but slaves nonetheless.
