The Self Leader Secret
No Taxation Without Representation
The slogan, (No taxation without representation), was used as a political slogan in the Americas from 1763 to 1776. This slogan summarized the primary grievance between the British colonists and the Thirteen Colonies known today as the United States of America. Many of the American colonists believed that the lack of direct representation in the governing British Parliament was an illegal denial of their rights as Englishmen. Therefore, the laws requiring taxation of the colonists, as well as other laws imposed on the colonists pertaining to their currency, were considered unconstitutional.
At that time the Parliament realized that in order to control a people, the economy of the people had to be controlled first. The best way to insure the advantage of the Parliament over the Thirteen Colonies was to increase the monetary status of the Parliament through taxation while at the same time reducing the monetary economy of the Colonies through the resulting social economic collapse due to this taxation. This allowed the Parliament to garner funds attained from the Colonies through taxation and then use those funds to purchase gold and silver which was intrinsically more powerful than the currency which the Colonists were printing as their own currency in the Americas.
This morning I heard on the local news that the our state governor has placed two propositions on the ballot which would charge a .25 cent tax on grocery bags which we are given freely to help carry our purchased staples from the market. Remember, it is our purchase of these staples which promotes the economy; now it seems that we are to be taxed for the labor of putting food on the table and supporting our economy. Do you feel represented in the proposition of this new tax? I usually carry 4 shopping bags out of the store about two to three times a week. Let’s look at the numbers:
25 X 4 = $1.00 X 3 per week = $ 3.00 X 4 per month = $ 12.00 X 12 months in a year = $ 144.00 per year
That’s Just for The Bag!!! How many of you can afford a chauffeured driven ride to your tax payer supplied governor’s mansion? How many of you cannot afford healthcare for your young children; while we recently watched our governor receive exceptional orthopedic care via tax payer paid surgical expenses to help our governor recover from a skiing accident while vacationing at an exclusive ski resort. When was the last time you could afford to even take a day off work? I ask you again, “Do You Feel Represented?”
This kind of governmental manipulation through imposing another taxation ballot proposition, which is hiding under a cloaked banner such as HR31000 to oblivion for example, is easy to accomplish as many are just too busy trying to survive to research what these quote, “For the good of the people” propositions are. In these difficult times of “How do I feed my kids tonight?” we just feel that we have no time to worry about learning what these new propositions may mean to our life’s; and therefore we go on struggling on, voting for things we are told are good for us and in so doing are giving up more and more of our civil liberties. These economic manipulations are forcing our society to become divided into a society of the poor and a society of the wealthy elite.
While welfare programs are being cut off to the poor and disabled, huge welfare bailouts are being given to large corporations. While we are being given tax increase upon tax increase; big corporations are being given greater and even greater tax cuts and financial bail outs such as has most recently occurred again for the automotive industry. So I ask, “Do You Feel You Are Being Represented?” Through these deceitful governmental taxation propositions I really get the feeling that the governmental elite must think we are stupid! I am standing on the roof top screaming out to these deceptive practices, “I am not dead! I am intelligent; I am a Neothink® Society member. I value my civil liberties; and I will not vote myself into economic ruin, I will not be defeated!”
I will not be oppressed into idiocy and driven into submission. I value my right to stand as a Citizen of America. One, who as stated in our Declaration of Independence is created as equally endowed by my creator with certain unalienable rights, among which are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. Therefore I proclaim as did our forefathers, “I want no taxation without representation.” Will you join me in the revival of this slogan and take back your freedom?
