As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artworkhere, being shared by the page, “Being Libertarian,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“Chuck Wendig (@ChuckWendig): I think the success of GoFundMe campaigns for medical expenses shows that we could probably do it on a national level, creating a collective fund for everyone using something called ‘taxes,’ and we can use it to pay for a thing I’ve invented called ‘universal health care.’ It’s called GoFundMe, not GoFundMeOrElse”
My Commentary: GoFundMe is voluntary and consensual. Taxation Is Theft. Grow a soul, oppressor. Your coercion is showing.
(Jeffrey A. Tucker) Donald Trump has revived his earlier tax proposal that would (it appears) reduce taxes for everyone. The predictable debate has already begun with all the usual posturing.
Is this mainly for the rich? Any tax cut worth doing will disproportionately benefit the rich because the rich pay most of the taxes. That is a given, so anyone barking up this tree is just gaming the debate in hopes of inciting envy.
