Probably the best thing about President Trump’s Executive Order providing anyone making less than $100K per year a “tax holiday” is that for the first time since the inception of a progressive tax system, people will finally get a taste of just how much money is being robbed from them each weak by a bloated and corrosive government. For those making six figures, they’ll see around $6,000 more added to their weekly check, distributed over those months of course, but the amount of money is significant. Most people don’t view taxable income as part of their salary because the money is robbed by the government before anybody ever gets it, so it makes it much easier for the government to spend that money knowing that nobody will challenge the amounts, because they never saw the money to begin with. This has been a problem with all taxes for a long time, the money comes from invisible methods that people seldom see or understand. Its quite another thing to have to write a check to pay taxes as opposed to the governments both state and federal just taking that money before we get our checks.
I kept waiting for somebody else to point this wonderful issue about the “tax holiday” out on one of the Sunday shows or even when the talk radio people returned to the national airwaves on Monday, since Trump signed the now famous executive orders on Saturday August 8th, 2020. But the news of the weekend wasn’t about the magnificent space successes of Space X, first splashing down the first Americans from space in decades from the International Space Station, or the successful testing of a controlled flight and landing of a Starship prototype, or just a few days later the launch of more Starlinks, all within a week of each other. The news instead was about riots destroying stores along the Miracle Mile in Chicago—again the news was focused on the primitive diatribes of yesteryear to direct the mind of mankind toward things that a slow minded government could highlight as core competencies. All this space stuff and concepts of becoming an interplanetary species is just too complicated, so the focus was on riots, failed politics and hiding from a silly virus when our society should be easily conquering all those issues with bandwidth to spare. So I’ll go ahead and make the point.
Collectively, government brings out the worst people and it is stupid for us to treat them with the kind of respect that a top-level CEO deserves. At best, government is a place holder for the real smart people who do make things happen in the world, so we should never be eager to throw endless amounts of tax money at them for the basics of society. One of the biggest criticisms of Trump’s tax holiday as a method of Covid-19 relief to everyday people is that it undermines the Social Security and Medicare systems. We are supposed to accept that those socialist measures created so long ago are viable solutions for a future that really doesn’t need either. The question of health care shouldn’t be in government managing it, it should instead be in how people can heal themselves better by living longer and more productively. And the idea of Social Security is archaic because people simply live too long now, and the money issued isn’t enough to justify all the work. It’s a system that needs to be re-invented into something else more conducive to modern society. But government, dumb as it is, wants things simple and easy for them to control, so they lay in the way of progress for all those obvious reasons, so they can stay in the management game, even though the world is moving way too fast for their tiny minds.
Trump’s brilliance on the tax holiday is that people will finally see how much money has been taken from them provoking them to ask questions as to why they should ever give it back, which is a good question. The government over the years just assumes that it owns 6% or so, even greater oftentimes just for existing while there are many people in America who pay little to no tax because they don’t make much money, and we are supposed to share government resources with them out of the kindness of our hearts. Its was always a ridiculous proposal for the last 100 years, and its just as dumb now. We need a tax holiday and once Trump gets re-elected we need to make those tax cuts permanent, and by then, people will have seen for a half a year or so how much money they have more from week to week as opposed to accepting the losses before they ever were paid. That is the best way to get support from people on serious tax cuts and innovative ways of looking into the future. People will be more likely to support such tax innovations if they can get their hands on more of their cash and see the benefit.
This idea of just blindly trusting government to spend our vast sums of income is just stupid. They do not spend our money wisely, and worse than that, they have come to feel entitled to our labor efforts without earning the respect that should always accompany the measurement of money. To listen to Democrats, negotiate with the Trump team over the stimulus package last week throwing around numbers in the trillions of dollars by people who likely struggle to add up the money for their lunch was preposterous. They don’t deserve our money and we shouldn’t have to give it to them by gunpoint, which is essentially what the IRS is for the government, a mob like entity that can take everything you own if they are displeased with you. That kind of power should never go to government and its about time we roll some of that back.
I always felt Trump was playing the hands of the coronavirus for politics, he had little choice. I may have been one of the angriest people about Covid-19 on planet earth because I saw it as a fake reaction to a global United Nations strategy from the outset. Others were much slower to it, but as of today, many more people are understanding the situation for what it has been. Yet Trump is doing what we expect him to do, to finally have a Republican who can turn a crisis into a benefit for a change. Finally we can push back on issues that otherwise would have never seen the light of day, and with Trump’s “tax holiday” we can finally get people to pay attention to real tax reform by disguising Covid-19 relief for a real strike against the progressive tax system and put the government on their heels for a change. They aren’t entitled to our money as they have believed for a long time, and with Trump steering the ship, we have our best chance ever to wrestle away that perception with lasting consequences. And that is very exciting, probably the most exciting news of this year of 2020. It may be depressing for the lazy governments that just want infinite amounts of money stolen from us with perpetuity. But its always been our money, and its about time that someone give it back to us to keep.
