Taxation is theft.

How does anyone get by with the current crazy tax rates??

@Siedge Mostly we just spin our wheels and end up not far from where we started. OECD has a lot of interesting graphs, mainly it seems, people in highly taxed places just rack up debt.

And we sit around and let it happen and even worse idiots vote for it to happen. It feels like there's no point in even trying, your hard work ends up amounting to nothing.

@Siedge I'm with you, my man. But people have been convinced that when the gov't does something, it doesn't cost anything. They can't see the connection between "yay free stuff from the government!" and crushing taxation. The data has been out for decades, the higher the taxes, the less money people have to spend (and the higher their household debt grows). But no one wants to hear that. I don't think much can be done about it, but who knows.

So do we just sit and take it? Seriously. Someone self employed making less than 100k a year can be paying more than 40% in taxes. 40%!!!

@Siedge Heh, well, I'm Canadian so I pay about that in taxes and I make less than half of that working a regular job.

I'm just not sure what can be done, people voted for tyranny and got it in spades. I just drink on the weekends and try not to think about it.

Is that what we're reduced to? Is that what we've become. People talk about how men have become women. I agree, used to women got fucked, now were all getting fucked.

@Siedge Yeah pretty much. I like to think of it this way, at 40% tax, if you started working January 1st, you wouldn't be earning any money until about the 3rd week of April. So 40% of the time you work as a slave for the government. Doesn't sound like any definition of "freedom" that I would recognize. I know I certainly didn't agree to have anyone reach into my paycheck and take a chunk before I even got to see it.

Speaking of which, I need to go to sleep so I can wake up at 4am and slave away -- after all, I'm months away from earning anything for myself. yay.
@Siedge @saltorito It's not only the self-employed. Although the ostensible rates for under-100k salaried workers is less, an additional fraction of their income is removed through so-called "payroll tax".
@Siedge @saltorito Brother, do you have a moment to discuss our lord and savior Agorism? :ancap:
@p @Siedge @saltorito some faggot has like 5 different fedi instances open in the same browser
@p @Siedge @saltorito that thread that some shitty asshole was spamming on switter all day got like 20,000 views in the past 24 hours.

@Siedge i believe in a progressive tax rate
10% income tax for the bottom 98%
80% wealth tax for the top 2%

If I were to agree with taxes. I'd believe in the same tax rate for everyone. Everyone should pay the same percentage.

Also the idea that the government ever needs more than 10% of someones money is ridiculous.

With income tax, property tax, unemployment tax, sales tax, and all the other taxes. You pay taxes so many times along the way. The united states didn't even used to have an income tax. It's all waste and the whole system keeps getting more and more wasteful.

@Siedge @chara this: government doesnt need more taxes, it needs to manage its budget properly

Like that'll ever happen. We allow the bottom 20% of the population to drag us as far down as we can, and we gladly let them.

@wowaname @Siedge @chara

It’s a bit tongue in cheek, whiskey would have been a more subtle joke, but I don’t think this one landed quite right either. Oh well.
@dead @Siedge @chara yeah i figured you were trying to make a joke but im sorry i didnt understand it
@dead @Siedge @chara i wont push you to explain it either because the punchline ship has sailed, and this isnt reddit
@wowaname @Siedge @chara

One day I’ll realize I’m not funny, but today is not that day.
@chara @Siedge fuck off. How about 10% for everyone and we cut the size of the government like it should be.

@vix @Siedge man, imagine non-sarcastically playing defense for jewish 2%ers. are you part of the tribe? are you jewish? are you jewish? you sound like a kike. hey, kike, here's an idea: the holocaust never happened, BUT IT SHOULD HAVE, and hopefully another one happens SOON.

@chara @Siedge hey faggot, I’m part of the 2% and I’m no kike. Take your communism elsewhere

@vix @Siedge how much did jewish zuckerberg bezos & goldstein pay you for this post? how many layers of JEWISH KIKE SHILL are you on right now?

@vix @Siedge "oy vey! they're after my shekels! it's like anudda shoah! shut it down! SHUT IT DOWN!!!!!!!!"

@vix @Siedge "80% wealth tax? i wouldn't even be able to pay my antifa goyim anymore! oy gevalt!"

@vix @Siedge fucking idiot nigger kike-slave KILL YOURSELF. you are permanently blocked. never talk to me again.

@vix @Siedge idiot retard tranny kike, fuck off back to your gay ops discord

@chara @Siedge also you spammed me with a whole lot of insults and no argument.

@wowaname @Siedge i don't know who you are, but for non-sarcastically playing defense for JEWISH KIKE 2%ers, you must be a jewish kike yourself, and/or a faggot discord tranny. you are permanently blocked. kill yourself, kike. the holocaust never happened, but it should have, and hopefully another one happens soon.

@wowaname my favorite™ chara-ism is that "edge" is code for "racist"
@chara @Siedge
I'd rather just take all the wealth and reigns of power from the Jews and then eliminate social programs and income tax.
Seeing as we don't, CURRENTLY, live in a world where this can be done, becoming a communist dictatorship to starve the commies - which is most Jews and otherwise comprised of other undesirables - seems pretty legit. As we've seen with Russia once you get out it has the added benefit of slaying Liberalism too!
@IsaacWestcott @chara @Siedge 50% of americans are on government benefits, but it wasn't real capitalism, right?
