California Wildfire Bailouts Are A Terrible Idea

November 20, 2018
With fires blazing in California, homes destroyed and lives lost, California's government seems to only be concerned with one thing. Protecting corporate profits. While many are blaming fires on camp fires, global warming and an unmaintained buildup of dry brush, California's biggest power company PG&E may have just admitted that a fallen power line was responsible for starting the fires. This could mean that the company could be sued by Californians for all their losses, which could add up quickly.

The Philippines, Where Taxes Make The Poor Poorer And The Rich Richer

November 19, 2018
In ancient times, taxes have always been a menace to the people, and we were taught that it was hell living during the ancient eras since there’s still no law to inhibit the rich from enslaving the poor. We’ve undergone this revolution thing that our ancient heroes did to save our country, the Philippines, from other countries -- dying to provide us freedom we share today. Well, wait, freedom? Yes, we can do all we want except doing things that are against the law -- laws created by...

Where can I learn more about avoiding taxes?

March 31, 2018
A question from one of our followers, Austin asks: Hello I was hoping you could point me in the right direction of being able to educate my self more on the topics you represent. Id like to learn so as to be able to effectively defend myself and stand up for what I believe that taxation is theft, and be able to help educate others, but I'm a little more than naive on the subject and it's a little difficult to find trustworthy and well educated sources on the matter from my current research.

Can we abolish the income tax?

March 21, 2018
I can easily say yes. Most people believe that the income tax is vital for the government to operate. It's not too hard to understand why. Everywhere you look you can find this idea being reinforce. When you're a kid and you go to school, you get the generic indoctrination of "pay taxes for schools and libraries and police". We see it in movies, and hear about it in the news as if this theft is normal. We have come to the point that if you talk to anyone about taxes, most people will assume you are talking about the income tax.

Randall Lord imprisoned for breaking a law that doesn't exist.

March 20, 2018
Randall Lord was charged with operating a money service business (MSB) without a license. The thing is, MSBs are issued at the state level, and the office that issued the license told Randall that he didn't need one.

There is no law requiring you to pay taxes

March 16, 2018
The Freedom Law School challenges anyone to find a law stating that the average American wage earner has to pay income tax. Many people claim to have found the answer, but like any good lawyer will tell you, you have to read the fine print. A Brief History Bill Conklin fist made this offer a few decades ago. The offer back then was only $50,000. It had a few requirements to claim the prize.

Congress never bailed out the banks

March 16, 2018
In 2008, banks including the Federal Reserve threatened us that the economy would collapse if we didn't give them $700bn. At least that was the story we were told. In fact, that's almost completely wrong. The story claims that banks were insolvent and if the government didn't give money to these banks, people wouldn't have access to the money in their accounts. While this is mostly true, the blame was completely misdirected away from the real financial irresponsibility.

Tax free tipping - a grassroots anti-tax movement

March 16, 2018
A lot of foodies leave tips in cash for different reasons. Some do it so that their server gets the tip directly without having to worry about the store owner not giving over all the credit card tips. Some do it because of the credit card fees. Some even do it to leave it to the server whether they want to report it as income on their taxes. But there is a new trend similar to the "illegal tax evasion" scheme that's really just "legal tax avoidance".

Illegal Immigration Does Not Cost Taxpayers

February 19, 2018
Understanding the argument No matter what your or my position is on immigration, we have to at least understand the facts. If we don't understand the facts, then we are taking sides based purely based on emotional self interest. First we should understand why the topic is os polarized. We typically don't like when we ask a politician if he is in support of something and he answers in some monologue that fails to address the question.

New Hampshire Could Get a New Income Tax

February 17, 2018
New Hampshire could be the next state to get its own income tax. Everyone in the US knows about income tax, but many don't know that they are applied on both the state and federal level. This means that you're paying income tax to both your state as well as the feds. But not every state is like that. Texas, one of the biggest states in the union doesn't have an income tax. There are several other states as well that are able to function without it.
