One hundred and three years ago today, RMS Titanic hit the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean. That’s one of two disasters we recognize on this date, the second being “Wealth Redistribution Day” a.k.a. IRS Tax Deadline.
Unjust taxation was the catalyst for the first American Revolution. Today our fundamental rights are again being violated by unjust taxation for purposes not authorized by our Constitution.
Excerpt from The Patriot Post Daily Digest:
Where did your tax money go? Just shy of half of all federal tax revenue goes to major entitlements — Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other health care programs. (Before we move on, to be crystal clear, some government benefits are “earned,” like Social Security or military benefits. These stand in contrast to “unearned” benefits of welfare, food stamps and the like.) Another 20% goes to various wealth transfer programs like unemployment benefits and food stamps. That’s more than two-thirds of the federal budget that goes from your pocket to someone else’s. See why we call it “Income Redistribution Day”?
Finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t note that ObamaCare subsidies factored into millions of returns for the first time this year. And that’s going to mean a lot of, er, adjustments. According to Investor’s Business Daily’s Betsy McCaughey, “If you enrolled in ObamaCare in 2014 and got a subsidy to pay for it, you’re at risk of losing your refund. Surprise: You may even owe Uncle Sam money. Only 4% of people who signed up for ObamaCare got the correct subsidy, so a whopping 96% will see their tax bill adjusted, some up and others down. Who would design a system that’s right only 4% of the time?” Democrats, that’s who.
The Titanic sank over a hundred years ago; the Constitution and the freedom it guarantees is foundering today. God help us.
