Are you a slave? If so, are you volunteering your produce to your masters, under the guise of being free? Most people in the USA are doing exactly that. Consider that after you’re finished “donating” nearly half of your income (more or less, depending on your income level) in income tax, you then “donate” a further 8% to 10% on sales tax for whatever you purchase, are forced to spend all sorts of useless-to-you fees in compliance with vehicle registration, and a whole host of other taxes, fees, and other nonsense. In fact, if you really account for all the costs imposed on you by your most benevolent government servants, you work for them each year until August 12th of each year, as figured in this 2011 report by the Americans for Tax Reform Foundation. That’s over 61% slavery!
But keep in mind, most good American citizens view this slavery as freedom, and as their duty to others. Do you? Are you curious as to where they’d get such an odd notion?
Take a look at this video, called The Jones Plantation and consider the parallels between plantation slavery and what this once-free nation has become. I’m interested to know your thoughts.
