Taxation Upon Taxation

How many times does the United States government tax your hard earned income? Lets say John Q gets his paycheck, all the taxes taken out. On his way home he stops at the convenience store. There he pays taxes on his purchases, items purchased with his income, sales tax, fat tax, tobacco tax, etc. Then he goes home to rest, while home he decides to get his bills in order and go pay them. Cable bill first, cuz he got da bundle, line fee, interstate blah blah, lots of fees and taxes. This is the story of most Americans, you work one, sometimes two or three jobs, and your money just doesn't go very far because of the taxation upon taxation. See this government that just grows itself and really does nothing else of value, well other than national defense has to feed off your income, you might as well burn your money, very little of all that taxation actually benefits you. Wouldn't you like to just get one minimum fed and state tax, and then get to keep all your money without being slammed with all those cumbersome miscellaneous taxes. Can we do something about this, yes, you can work "under the table". I am not advocating this option, it is illegal. Even if you manage to make a decent amount of money you still will get slammed with sales tax and all those others. The only real solution is to pressure congress to change the rules, if you have to take it all the way to the supreme court. Let's face it we all know that the government is a wasteful entity, and even with Obamas valiant attempt to appear as if he was cutting the waste, he didnt. We need people in there with some common sense, pull all the government grants for research on ridiculous things like the speed at which ketchup rolls downhill. Cut funding to all the ridiculous offices, and czars and all other beuracracies that are not essential to running the govt. Then pass a law that says in years without a balanced budget, nobody in govt. gets paid. From the prez all the way down to the bottom of the pile. We need some serious cost cutting efforts and TARP and bailouts is throwing good money after bad, anybody that is trying to save money knows that is just bad. There are things we citizens can do to save money, and we shoud for the betterment of ourselves, but our government needs to save money too, for the betterment of our future. I'm all over the map on this one, it was an unplanned post. Anyways peace America! AFT
