The Dollar Vigilante: Top 10 Ways Government Shutdown Will Affect You #3 Imagine if a child could open a lemonade standSubmitted by barracuda_trader on Tue, 10/01/2013 - 05:34
The stroke of midnight has just passed and the US government has turned into a pumpkin. Well, we wish. In fact the US government like some eternal zombie continues to walk the Earth even without the souls of taxpayers upon which to feast. And, even that isn't totally true. Like any zombie it still collects the blood of its victims (taxes) even while most of its zombie army (federal government employees) sit at home on a paid vacation... and most of their oppressive "services" continue on, like the CIA, NSA, ATF, DEA, Executive branch, police and more.
But just for our pleasure, let's imagine that all government in the US really shut down... which it will in the coming years as the US dollar collapses.
Here, then, is our top 10 list of ways a theoretical shutdown of the US government would affect you in that event... and we include a few ways the current pseudo-shutdown will also affect you (hint: it's better).
1. NO MORE TAXES! One of the things that has most shocked me in my life is hearing someone like Ron Paul, who ran for the last President of the US, saying, "Shut down the IRS" and most American sheeple actually thinking he is crazy! Through decades of public school indoctrination and mainstream media propaganda slaves in the US actually think taxation is just a part of life! Of course, one of the "founding fathers" of the US (which was actually just a political coup) is famous for saying, "In this world nothing can be said to be certain except for death and taxes". In reality, taxes aren't a fact of life and are solely extortion. Imagine how much your life would change if your government did shut down and you were free to spend your own money as you choose.
3. NO MORE REGULATION! Imagine if a child could open a lemonade stand again in the US without being arrested!
