Taxation, the new Slavery!!!!

Is taxation the new Slavery???

How did you feel when you got your first job when you were a teenager and you calculated that you worked 40 hours in a week for $5 bucks an hour and you got your check and it said $174 and you noticed you had money taken off your check.

You then start to learn everyone has to pay their share, that we are all doing our part to help with roads, school, police, etc..

As we get older and start to make more, we quickly reliaze the more you make the more they take. I have literally heard people say that they don’t want to make more cause they will hit the next bracket and they will take more off their check and make even less then before.

Here is a break down of the percentage you’ll pay for taxes on your income here in Nova Scotia.

I use to always want to make $100,000 a year when I was a kid. I thought I would be rich. As I started to learn more I realized if I make exactly $100,000 in a job I would only technically bring home to my house $56,500. I’m all for helping out but taking almost half of my hard earned dollars to pay for the debt of the Canadian Government I think it is putting us back into slavery.

The Definition of the word Slavery is as follows:

1.the state or condition of being a slave; a civil relationship wherebyone person has
absolute power over another and controls his life,liberty, and fortune

2.the subjection of a person to another person, esp in being forced into work (I owe I owe so its off to work I go)

3.
the condition of being subject to some influence or habit

4.work done in harsh conditions for low pay

Back in the late 1800s to 1930s many of our ancestors came to North America for freedom and a better life for their families.  Back then the only way many of them could get land was to find an land owner that was willing to let them harvest their land in order for ownership down the road. This was called Sharecropping. If someone harvest their land and gave any more then 30% of their Harvest to the land owner you were considered a Slave.

Today the majority of Canadians that have jobs pay more then 30% of their hard earned dollars to the government for taxes. I even know people that are paying over 65% of their income to taxes.  How would anyone feel if they knew they worked from January-August for the government and from September-December for themselves.

I learn more and more about how free our country use to be but slowly over time it is getting worse and worse and our country is losing its freedom one bill, one new tax at a time.

Here is a post by Ron Hitsman I just had to share.

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table
At which he’s fed.

Tax his work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him till
He’s good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid.

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle class, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

If you think this is getting out of control like this post, if you think its time to change things leave a comment below.

Be Awesome,

    Sounds like after you add all those value added taxes it’s more like 75 or 80% taxes. Time to say no more to the governments and elites.
    Thanx Alex. Great information.

    Wow, truly eye opening! Truth hurts.
    I’m ready to do something about it.
    Thanks for leading from the front in financial education!

  3. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found
    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Limiting your production because you do not know how to lower your taxable income simply contributes to the problem. I agree that the tax rates appear to be unjust, yet:
    In a free society, government reflects the soul of its people. If people want change at the top, they will have to live in different ways…
    Cal Thomas
    The 5th US president James Monroe and Ron Paul both had similar statements.

    It’s OK to get upset and cry but this better be followed by personal responsibility! You are not powerless!

    If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning…
    Frederick Douglass

    1. Hey Andrew, thanks for your comments, you are so right, we are not powerless. It hard to watch when I see people give up striving for excellence just so they don’t fall into a higher tax bracket. There are many ways to lower your taxable income but unfortunately they are not taught to the majority. Thanks for your contribution.
