E Pluribus Taxes (Out of Many, Taxes)

Here’s more commentary from Ed’s archives, dated January 7, 2008.


“If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed 10,000 years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.” ~ Edward O. Wilson


“I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.”
~ E.B. White


How can somebody say that? Well, these are the words of men of understanding… men who obviously recognized the work of the Creator.

The Creator endowed free agency to only one species — Homo sapien. All the rest of creation are bound to the program that was instilled in them by their Creator. They cannot mess up, while the other, Homo sapien — or man — can mess up and does it to the extent that he engineers his own destruction.

Some two and a half centuries ago, a group of men decided that, being on a new continent, they would not be ruled by kings from the world they left for this land. They believed that all men were created equal, that they established on this continent a government from the ground up, and not from the top down. They recognized and respected their Creator, and the nation they founded became the magnet which drew men and women from all continents to this one, where men could breathe free. E Pluribus Unum.

Now, 230-some years later, what has happened? Our founding fathers rejected taxation without representation… taxation of just three percent. Today we have taxation with representation at the excess of 40 percent and rising. With the interest, it’s well over 50 percent, and then comes inflation, the most insidious tax of them all. Even your Social Security, which has been withheld from your paycheck… the government borrowed it and spent it. How can they replenish it? With your taxes, of course!

So, you get to pay twice to get back once.

The government can do a lot, but it cannot make money. It can counterfeit and spend money, and someday soon you will learn that they can spend and counterfeit faster than you can earn it. America is number-one in cancer and number-one in diabetes. Her genetically modified crops are rejected by the world. Her government talks about health care while it is actively involved in the destruction of our national health by pushing a nutritional program that is destroying our children. They are destroying our physical health as well as our mental health. It consumes 16% of our GDP and is projected to be 20% by 2016… and I fear it will be coming about by 2013.

How long will we keep hallucinating and deluding ourselves? When will we start to realize that the Greek philosopher was right? And I quote: “It has been said that men think as a herd, act as a herd, run mad as a herd, only to return to sanity — slowly — and then one-by-one.” ~ Ed De Boer
