What percentage a slave are you?

Whatever percentage of your money that you pay in taxes is the same percentage of time that you serve in bondage to the government. For example if you pay 30% in taxes, then 30% of your working time is spent in servitude to the government. Further, this percentage doesn't include the taxes you pay on goods, services, and any other financial "obligation" to the government.

Slavery never ended. The central government just took over the role of master.

Ever heard of the "Hazard Circular?"

Congressman Charles Lindbergh Sr. wrote:

Yes, these money lenders began early to acquire control. They have never let it go. They started in Europe long, long ago, and just as soon as there was anything doing over here they were on hand. Alexander Hamilton was one of their supporters. I shall not review his acts, but shall refer to a few later things emanating directly from the banks.

The English money lenders have co-operated with those of our country, and in 1862 an agent, quietly and under a sort of confidential seal, distributed among the aristocrats and the wealthy class a circular. It was called the Hazard Circular and related in a way to the Civil War. It read:

“Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power and all chattel slavery abolished. This I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of the laborers while the European plan, led on by England, is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages. The great debt that capitalists will see to it is made out of the war, must be used as a means to control the volume of money. To accomplish this the bonds must be used as a banking basis. We are now waiting for the Secretary of the Treasury to make this recommendation to Congress. It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that. But we can control the bonds and through them the bank issues.”

This shows how mercenary these usurers are. Rather than assume the care of the slaves, they would control labor with the use of capital. It necessarily followed that when the laborer ceased to be of service because of sickness or old age, he would be of no concern to capital. He could either get well or die without the capitalists being obliged to provide medical attention or bury the dead.

Such was the interest that capital had in the result of the Civil War. The people of this country poured out both their treasure and their blood to establish the political and industrial independence of humanity, and the mercenary capitalists turned a trick of finance and converted the enormous sacrifice made by the people during that struggle into a victory for capital, in order that they might enforce upon humanity the industrial slavery that the trusts preferred rather than the chattel slavery which then existed in the Southern States.

My mind is free, my body is enslaved.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

What about SSI social security recipients?

They get $730 or so per month.

I have friends that get SSI who are afraid to make money doing their music or whatever because they don't want to 'get caught' and lose this money.

So you don't have to be a net payer into the system to be a slave of the system...

Defeat the panda-industrial complex

I am dusk icon. anagram me.

SSI was designed so that payers would pay more in...

than they drew out. So still and for the most part, SSI recipients are net payers to the system. Also, I would include the money they must forgo due to the force of government preventing them from being productive as part of the imposed slavery.

It seems silly that a government would pass laws that forbids productive behavior.

Can we add on student loan payments?

I pay a third of my income towards that, before taxes...

No you cannot.

Taking out a student loan was actually YOUR choice. No one forced you to do so. You took money from a bank and now owe that money back to the bank. It isn't slavery, but more like voluntary indentured servitude. I know, I know. It seemed like a good idea at the time. But, you live, you learn.

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

ah yes

Now what if I took most of the loans out before the age of 18? What's the age of consent here?

But yes, voluntary indentured servitude sounds about right. Or naive hoax victim.

modified...

...

It's probably way more than that!

Taxes on everything you buy, including gas, electricity, buy a car and sell it later...then someone else buys it after that(multiple people paying taxes on same car), phone bills have multiple taxes, etc. I have a list somewhere of all the taxes everyone pays. I think it's more like 50% of everything earned goes into some sort of tax when it's all said and done. Not to mention the taxes we cover because we are actually paying the taxes added into prices that corporations are taxed. It's one big taxed nation!

correct!

I figured out the top 10 largest taxes we pay and it was AT LEAST 50% for a middle class wage earner.
And, we do get some things back, so the percentage might decrease somewhat. Some people take advantage of free school, or free roads, or free snow plow service, etc.
