(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.
(Matt Agorist) As the media and the government continue to use the tragic shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school to push their various agendas, it is important to remember that psychopaths who want to kill a lot of people—will do so with or without a gun.

This attack is often disregarded by history as it paints a different narrative outside of the normal problem, reaction, solution of grabbing guns. As a result, it has largely been erased from the narrative.

These are just a few reasons to rightfully Withdraw Consent from a corrupt government (although this is precisely when one first discover their inability to legitimately opt out of even a portion of this State-Sponsored crime-spree, illuminating the fact that taxation is just a clever form of THEFT)…
