Directly from our earnings money is taken and given over to the Government. It does not stop there, you go to the stores and more taxes are taken and also given to the Government. The Government provides services for you as in:
- Protection via the police departments, fire departments and so on.
- Depending on which country you are in, some medical coverage may also be provided, as long as you do not need a specialist, specialists are often times not covered by basic medical plans.
- Road and Highway maintenance/development.
The Government decides who gets the roads or bridges or whatever need be, at least they decide on if they are going to supply any of the tax payer’s money for it. This is not the Government’s money, it is yours and mine, those of us that pay the taxes.
We as the citizens have seen many changes over the past decade or so and it seems the rules get stranger and stranger. New laws seem to be developed by members of the Government and these new rules are not put to a vote by the citizens of the country. Their motto is, you voted in the Political parties so you have to live with the decisions they make. Oftentimes nominated parties are so far removed from their campaign promises it’s hard to see much of anything that was originally promised.
We buy ourselves a home if we can afford it and we are to pay local property taxes on it, you know, for the services the town provides for you. The services are like never plowing your block in the winter and of course the once a year street sweeping, your neighborhood tax dollars at work. They may work on a power pole once every five years perhaps, but I don’t think that even falls under them anymore.
Don’t forget they come around to your house and want you to do surveys and you are legally forced to participate in their lovely surveys; they’re a special bunch. Due to lack of trust in any ruling body it causes great suspicion as to what are they really looking for?
Ah, so many of you are as they wish, you have been assimilated into the puppet that they hoped for. Where does this take place when persons of the ordinary think they are above others and what they want matters much more than what others may want or need? How over the years was this fed down from parents to their offspring? As the generations go forward the trait of self entitlement grows into an uncontrollable fiend.
Feed the Ego and let them flounder from there. Check your Ego! Mayhap could there be someone higher to answer to? Who do you think is at the wheel? A time comes, can we make changes?
