Americans Will Work More than 6 Months to Pay Cost of Gov't in 2012

This year, Americans have to work until July 15 to pay for the burden of government, more than six months.

In a new report, Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) has calculated that Americans will spend a total of 197 days toiling to pay for the cost of government.

"Cost of Government Day is the date of the calendar year on which the average American worker has earned enough gross income to pay off his or her share of the spending and regulatory burden imposed by government at the federal, state and local levels," reads the report.

Seriously, with price inflation, depreciation of equipment and structures, operating costs, interest, etc., ever increasing; who knows when it will slowdown.

ie. Frankly, I am still wondering why all the government purchases of good size pick-up trucks with all their claims of climate change doom?

hint - when was the last time you saw one of those beds full? lol

And at what point does it become slavery?????!!!!!

People, you have to understand that there is NOTHING patriotic about the income tax or paying it. It's intended to keep you paying interest on a debt that can NEVER BE PAID!!!!

So the question is, AT WHAT POINT DO YOU CONSIDER IT SLAVERY??!!! 60%, 75%, 98%, WHAT.... WHAT POINT IS IT SLAVERY IN YOUR MINDS?????? What percentage of a slave do you want to be before you realize it's slavery????

The bankers love that you do what you are told when it comes to income tax. That's how their fraud of central banks continue to deprive you of your Liberty, by making you work harder and harder just to pay off interest on a debt that WILL NEVER BE PAID!!!!!

Also, the income tax is an Excise Tax. The average american HAS NO INCOME TAX LIABILITY! It's technically a very narrow limited tax!

Go to www.incometaxtruth.com and get a copy of what I think is the best book EVER written on the subject of what the income tax actually is, what the law ACTUALLY says versus what you THINK it says and most importantly, WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!!!!!

I often tell people, that signing a W-4 Form, which is a Federal Tax Form, to "get a job" is something that they should refrain from! But then im told, "I won't get hired if I don't". And that's EXACTLY my point, VERY VERY FEW are willing to do something about the fraud to STOP IT! The average guy IS NOT the guy in Law (Title 26, USC) who's required to sign that form to get a job. In fact, that form HAS ZERO to do with the average guy in the first place.

Also, this Obama Care crap works off the income tax as well. You will be fined through the payment of the income tax for not having health insurance! Don't you get it yet???

I ABSOLUTELY HATE WHEN PEOPLE SAY "BUT WE HAVE TO PAY OUR TAXES, HOW WILL OUR GOVERNMENT RUN???" That is such a ridiculously stupid statement. It has carries NOOOOOOOOOOO evidence about who is actually liable for the tax and under what circumstances and also is an absolute cop out since almost anybody who pays an income tax has no clue as to who actually owes it anyway under the Law.

Ill leave at this, at what point do you consider yourself a slave to government?????

Love Liberty, be Vigilant

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Faith in God will prevail all things!

Government = Plantation (as they own your labor and you!)

Well, I would have to say it's kinda like being a little bit pregnant...edda you is 'o you ain't!

I also laugh at the comment, "America is the Free-est country in the world". I reply with, "Free-est is not a word, an individual is either free or not free, there are no degrees."

I think this applies equally to your degree of slavery query...we are all slaves on the government plantation. It would seem that the 14th Amendment substituted individual slavery for collective slavery, and opened the door to all the usurption since that time.

"America is the Free-est country in the world"

My quick reply is usually something like, "Great. So we're the healthiest horse in the glue factory."

No one can find a safe way out if society is sweeping towards destruction. Everyone,in his own interests, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle. None can stand aside with unconcern; the interests of everyone hang on the result. - LvM

People just don't get it

Talking about paying off a share of the debt. The debt was never meant to be paid off. If you could pay it off then there would be no debt slavery. This debt is intended to enslave. It will never be paid off, it can't be paid off.

Its not our debt anyway. The debt belongs to the banksters who had the government print money up to pay their party bill. They sold the politicians on a fake derivative scam. The debt is not ours. Its a fake debt scame setup by the banksters.

Yup.... It's simply a wealth

Yup.... It's simply a wealth transfer mechanism from the producers in society to those who have connections to the banks and government. Think about how much more wealthy the average person would be if they did not have to support these parasites. The average joe simply doesn't care...

First thing we need to do is

First thing we need to do is get me a massive federal no-bid contract, and then work on bumping that up to nine months to pay for it.

I have seen

You talk about no bid contracts before. In my state a few years back they had a thing about no bid contracts going on. When I went to vote years ago I voted against no bid contracts. They don't seem fair.

That's a good thing! Fairness

That's a good thing!

Fairness is commienism!

I saw a documentary about the

I saw a documentary about the middle ages onetime that pointed out how the modern British or American citizen actually labors more days per year for the government than the medieval serfs did for their lords. Of course, he smugly pointed out, "We receive far more in return."

The difference is worse than you think.

Medieval serfs were only required to turn over one fourth of their income to their lords. That makes us more than twice as much enslaved as the serfs were.

It is truly amazing how little oppression it took for people to revolt in previous times compared to today. Wasn't the Stamp Act a 3% tax? And now we are burdened with 54%? Eighteen times the burden, yet we allow our masters in Mordor to continue their rule without so much as a whimper in the mainstream media. Incredible.

Excellent perspective, I hope

Excellent perspective, I hope Ron mentions that in, what I hope to be, the RNC speech of the ages. Being sure to mention Romney's name in there, equating him to the oppresive masters.

Yes, we certainly

are on the receiving end!

I didn't get kissed, either

If you're a babe, I'll kiss you.

If you're a dude, well, is a hug OK?
