The truth about who pays taxes: Everyone and No One Simultaneously

Everyone pays taxes even when nobody pays them; nobody pays taxes, because everyone pays them. You cannot target just one ‘group’ because that group will ultimately diffuse that tax to some other group. Hence, every tax becomes a tax on everyone, and never a tax on any particular group. Solution?

Why Sticking it to Big Business Sticks it to the Little Guy

for most of us, when faced with a burdensome law, we do not have the flexibility to simply pick up and leave. Indeed, since most of us are busy just living out our lives, minding our own business, we are rarely even aware of a burdensome law until after it is too late to do anything about it, and frankly- if we’re honest- we usually couldn’t do anything about it, anyway. Why not?

Again, the facts of reality set in. We’re busy. We have jobs. We have families. We have obligations. We don’t have the time and resources to keep track of everything our local municipality is up to, let alone the state and Federal government. Ah… but our wealthy business owner, if he is sufficiently wealthy, can position himself to be aware of what is happening to him legislatively, and more than that, can hire people whose sole jobs are to attempt to influence that legislation.

Come on, admit it. If you had the money, you’d do the same thing. But since you don’t have the money, you chafe at others doing it. But the business person is only doing what a human in that situation can be expected to do.
