As we come once again to that dreaded day where millions of U.S.Citizens must file their taxes, we see how owned we really are.
What exactly do our taxes buy us: Servitude.
Or to put it bluntly, Slavery.
Our precious time, the only commodity we have left, is squandered in the cubicle plantations of our masters.
We are no longer a nation of free citizens, we are slaves to
bankers. These bankers are nothing more than pawns of the ruling elite
who own them. Even if we are lucky to do what we love, there is always the master saying, "you better pay your due, you sharecropper."
No longer Sovereign Citizens, having given up that freedom for the illusion of security and comfort, we became a nation of beggars. "Please master, can I have a little more food for my family?" or "Can you not hurt us so much?" not realizing we are asking for something that is already ours in the first place. Had we not sold it for 30 pieces of silver, that is.
As we adopted the lazy man's ways we gave away our property. In the process we lost our future and our freedom. All in the name of the "Greater Good," or so we were told.
Really, it is all manipulation:
