Report The-governments-relentless-desire-to-confiscate-wealth in House prices and the economy Posted August 27, 2009 worth a readhttp://www.scribd.com/doc/19122474/The-Tru...cate-Wealth-809 Taxation is evil, when direct. It was wisely outlawed by the Founders who knew their history. I posted a topic concerning direct taxation some time back, it seems to have no support, but i beleive that systems such as PAYE are undemocratic, this was a wartime measure in the Uk and should be abolished. governments should be made to justify their expeiditure to debate and work hard for funding and not assume they have an open cheque from the electorate. It is also a given that governemnts mistrust the electorate to the degree that they will introduce laws that assume guilt and introduce measures to stifle protest, you only have to examine the raft of legislation from NU Labour over the last ten years, they have introduced thousands of petty new laws for criminalising the electorate.
