Taxes Pay Killer Cops

May 30, 2020
In the past few days, the police have murdered another innocent person, George Floyd. The public, rightfully upset, started peaceful protests. The police used tear gas against peaceful protestors, even though that is considered illegal chemical warfare under the geneva convention. People grew more upset. A confirmed police officer struck out the windows of a local Auto Zone, even though peaceful protesters tried to stop him.

Willful failure to file is NOT the crime you think it is!

February 19, 2019
In this post I am going to point out a major flaw in most people's understanding of the tax code. One of the biggest fears of not filing is that the IRS will hunt you down and throw you in prison. A quick search of the words "willful failure to file" will bring up many pages with legal information telling you the same. I just did this in google and this is the page that comes up: https://definitions.uslegal.com/f/failure-to-file-tax-return-us/ I have contacted them to correct their misinformation,...

The spirit of liberty is alive and well in Uganda

February 6, 2019
This past week I traveled to Uganda to speak to a new generation of thought leaders at the Nkumba University in Entebbe, Uganda. The Liberty and Entrepreneurship Conferences was put together by the Action For Liberty and Economic Development, and students from all over Africa came for a three day summit. I spoke on government and taxation, alongside speakers from the Language of Liberty Institute, Glenn Cripe, Andy Eyschen, and Kyle Varner.

TSA and the Government Shutdown

February 4, 2019
TSA: The two party system is going out of its way to make us less safe simply to blame the other side. The money keeps coming in, and they are just stockpiling it while claiming there is nothing to give them. Two weeks ago during the shutdown, I traveled from Cancun to Salt Lake City with a layover in Fort Lauderdale. I’ll start off by pointing out I have no faith in the TSA to begin with. It’s just another attempt by the government to create a monopoly so we have nobody to thank for...

January 19, 2019
A group of teens on a school trip sought to intimidate a Native American Vietnam Vet Nathan Phillips during an indigenous peoples march. In the video footage you can them invading his personal space as he peacfully plays a drum. Afterwards, the Veteran made very emotional statement about the events that occurred, pointing out a few very important questions about this proposed wall on the border between the US and Mexico.

TSA Calls in sick - No crimes on planes

January 5, 2019
Amid the government shut down, which has left most people unaffected, TSA employees are now calling in sick by the hundreds. They refuse to work without pay, which is understandable, but why aren't they getting paid? The government is shut down, but if you book tickets online for a flight, you still have to pay the 9-11 security fees which are enough to get you a 60 minute massage, 20 times longer than the grope you'll get from the TSA.

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. Unfortunately for him, his lawyer had already convinced him to take a deal for a guilty plea. The business in question was simply exchanging bitcoins for dollars among mostly friends and family.

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.

Hitler Saves the Day!

January 8, 2017
If you've ever argued with someone on the internet, you know that eventually someone is going to bring up Hitler. It's inevitability is known as Godwin's law. To some, this is where they completely disengage from the conversation, as the thread is deemed to have reached the lowest point possible. But I would like to argue in favor of the Hitler argument. There's nothing in particular I can say I like about Hitler.

Income Tax - Unconstitutional? [Video]

January 8, 2017
A short history: a long time ago, i was at one of those free real estate seminars. I think this one might have been part of the trump university. The presenter said something about taxes and how to avoid paying them. I was already running a small business at that point, so that got my interest. Then an older guy yelled out from the crowd "It's unconstitutional!", then got up and left. That REALLY got my attention, so as soon as I got home, I started doing some research to see if there was any truth to that.

What if there was a Tax Fair, like a Science Fair, where kids would be asked to find creative alternatives to taxation?

January 7, 2017
We all know about science fairs, and many of us participated in some form of science fair or experiment as kids in school. What was the purpose? Ideally, to inspire the creativity in kids to find new solutions to world problems. I remember when I was in school, some of the big topics in the science fairs were mostly green - reducing pollution, finding alternative energy, etc. It wasn't that we were expected to find complete, fully functional solutions.

Ohio Supreme Court rules property tax unconsitutional

November 25, 2016
On March 24, 1997, the Supreme Court of Ohio ruled in a 4-3 decision that the state funding system "fails to provide for a thorough and efficient system of common schools," as required by the  Ohio Constitution , and directed the state to find a remedy. It's important to note that just like legislators, court justices are also human and flaws with prejudices and agendas. Because of this, no law or court ruling can ever be considered absolute justice, especially when it goes against popular opinion. However, sometimes they can be more just, against popular opinion.

Income Tax Amended to constitution with low expectations

November 25, 2016
Here's an interesting article from The Omaha Daily Bee, Omaha, Nebraska, February 4, 1913 - Just after the 16th amendment was raitified to the US constitution, authorizing the income tax. What's really interesting here is that the expectation at the time was a 1% tax on incomes above $4,000 to $5,000. These are two important numbers to compare. First, and most obvious, while it was expected that congress would tax just 1%, the income tax now starts at 10%, although most people fall into the 20% backet or higher.
