The Great Exploitation Proliferation Chapter 7
I looked for positive remarks regarding the Federal reserve banking system. I found none, however, I did find interesting views on our income tax system. One interview with a former IRS agent and republican congressman Ron Paul. The interview was over both parties disagreement with the income tax system, labeling it as unconstitutional. The interview was taken from a CNBC excerpt that was posted January 05, 2009 on you tube. It interesting how the former IRS agent stated he had file cabinets and binders of people that never paid taxes and never had to. I don't necessarily agree with their motives behind not paying taxes. I do agree that it is impossible to effect a billion dollar deficit with aggressive collections on taxes from poor and middle class people. The rich perhaps, but the rich pay the lobbyist well to manipulate laws and to enable tax loop-holes that will make it extremely impossible to collect any taxes from them. What does that mean? The purposeful abolishing of government programs that aid and supplement the income of the poor. That means a raise in crime rates and an increase in jail population. The inner-cities will become zoos and then they will become one big economic and federal funded jail. Many inner-city neighborhoods are already resembling one big jail system. The local police getting paid to play a simple game of cat and mouse.
It reminded me of a book that I read a few years ago called Rich Dad Poor Dad so I searched you tube and found some interesting commentary from young people regarding the read. One young man who will remain nameless on this blog. Gave his vision of the American dream as taught by the rich and the essential thing he mentioned was the "main expense" which was taxes... and the key to his success tax loop holes.
Now you see a war in America! The war between the U.S. government and the U.S. corporations. The war between rich and poor. One book that sheds light on this problem is Perfectly Legal by Pulitzer-prize winning journalist David Cay Johnston of the New York Times. You can get excerpts from his book by visiting: http://www.perfectlylegalthebook.com/index.htm
We must bridge the gap between our classes before their is all out war on U.S soil. I think the main way to bridge the gap is for the rich to contribute more to the poor and middle class. Not for a hand-out. I think our inner-cities are rich in family values. The people you don't see exploited on the news are the families who tirelessly feed, house, clothe and protect their family, friends and neighbors. Community leaders who through churches and organizations care for those strung out on drugs and provide a safe haven for the poor to rehabilitate themselves. Rehabilitation through spiritual worship and discipline or simply providing food, counseling and a place to stay to others without a stable income. These are unsung heroes who have enough money to leave the inner-city but refuse to prosper outside of the people they have come to grow and love. I think the riches and values of community is what's lacking in corporate America. Corporations have taken competition to extremes and that greed has trickled down to the masses with any virtue or benefit.
