At what point do we stop paying income tax?Submitted by sleightofhand80 on Mon, 07/29/2013 - 13:14
The government in its present state can’t sustain itself without the I.R.S., plain and simple.
In 2013 the federal budget was 2.9 trillion but the gov’t managed to spend 3.8 trillion, 25% over budget. The I.R.S. collects approximately 2.5-2.8 trillion a year so this revenue is the primary means of gov’t sustainability.
If we stopped paying income tax there would be no more IRS, TSA, NSA, DHS, DEA, DIA, DOE, ATF, EPA, CIA, FBI, and the list goes on…
So at what point do we stop paying income tax?
When cameras are in our homes? When the dollar collapses?
I’m familiar with the verse “Render under Caesar what is Caesar’s…” from Matthew 22:20-22, but I believe this is one of the most misunderstood verses in the Bible. People often mistake it to mean taxes should be rendered no matter what. I found an article written in 2010 by Jeffrey Barr that dwells with this very topic.
I’m curious to know what you all think.
