It took me a long time to figure out there is no such thing as socialism-lite. Once socialists find a hook (Property taxes, income taxes, etc.) you no longer “own” it. Don’t pay your property taxes and the government will confiscate it. Don’t pay your income taxes and they will confiscate you.

Originally the US had sales, stamp and corporate taxes. Once you bought something and the taxes paid, you owned it. Today, virtually everything you own of significant value is subject to indefinite taxes. This is the true insidious nature of socialism. YOU don’t own anything.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
