Why You Need to Pay Taxes

It's hard not to read a newspaper, an Internet news website or watch what passes for a news program on television without being informed that the Congress and President Barack Obama want to reduce the annual budget deficit and something they call the debt.

We know that this is vitally important to the survival of the United States since right after various Republican and Democratic politicians debated and voted to spend more money, they went on vacation.

Has anyone noticed if they are back in session or not?

The president, to demonstrate his commitment to leadership at this time of crisis, is out fundraising for the 2012 election.

It's either that or he’s trying to avoid any process servers trying to deliver an invitation to testify before a Congressional committee.

If you listened to the spokespersons and strategists for the president, Republicans, and Democrats, you would come away with the impression that they are all working diligently to either raise or lower taxes and to reduce the debt and the annual budget.

Which is why you need to pay more taxes under both the Democrats and the Republicans.

All politicians owe their existence to the fact that nearly all the voters can be counted on to be dumb as warthogs. They understand that if a voter can be fooled once they can be fooled for the next 40 or 50 years.

How else can anyone explain why Congress and whoever is then serving as president can have the voters convinced that must have your money because they are creating JOBS.

It is an unquestionable basic tenet by our political leadership — at least since FDR and The New Deal — that if the taxpayers kept more of their money they would just waste it on buying things or investing or saving.

But if the government gets more of your money they will create JOBS.

What government actually does is create government jobs. Which, of course, does not have anything to do with productivity but everything to do with costs, expenses and crony capitalism.

All politicians recognize this is made possible because voters come in two forms.

First there are those voters who pay for the government. These people are known as taxpayers. They get very little for their money.

After all, the government can do a tax audit on them and really make their lives miserable if they dare protest. Terrorism works well when done by those who make the rules.

Then there are those who get money back from the government without paying money in. These people are known as welfare recipients, Congress, the Administration, defense contractors, and campaign contributors who want government grants and loans for their “Businesses That Will Eventually Go Bankrupt After All the Money Is Sucked Out.”

Like you, I was intently watching the last round of budget debates between the political parties with the president occasionally showing his face long enough to say, “You guys go figure it out because I have to go to a fundraiser.

From what I can tell, this debate was over whether the government was going to spend a lot more money or a real lot more money.

One side said that spending a lot more money instead of a real lot more money was actually cutting spending and thereby there would be more money available for the government to spend on creating jobs by buying more military stuff so they can go around the world blowing up stuff.

The other side said that $14.5 trillion wasn’t enough spending and that was the cause of the failure to create jobs. They want to spend more to provide more welfare programs directed towards keeping more people on welfare, and for more people to be hired by the government to fill in positions on new agencies and commissions to rein in the businesspersons, investors and capitalists because they were just trying to make profits.

No matter what the politicians are saying about coming up with a budget that will reduce the deficient and lower the national debt, THE GOVERNMENT is going to spend ever more mind boggling amounts of the taxpayers money.

Which is why your are paying taxes.
