Another way to look at taxation

The question of taxes and procedural applications is immense, however a new way must be found.

The question of taxes and procedural applications is immense, however a new way must be found.

In the old way, a household would give 1/10th of the operation of his farm to the community to feed the whole. This then was divided up and distributed to each household always leaving some for dry times. If everyone was honest (and there was no reason not to be) there was usually plenty for all.

If there was not, however it was the leaders who took less, for it was their job to ensure the health and well being of the people.

Clearly this honourable perspective has been all but lost. Accountability has been murdered in this Liberal governmental occupational regime. This is where Rome began to fall.

The tax perspective should look like this: 10 per cent of all household and monthly income should go into the communal kitty or municipal government structure. Assets at the end of a person’s life should be divided up to the family with 10 per cent to government. Of this money 20 per cent should go to the provincial government for infrastructure. Federal government should receive 30 per cent of this money. Big business must begin to pay up all the remaining taxes they owe or face penalties.

Of course there’s more, however, the concept and purpose has lost its meaning and this is what needs to be addressed.

Let’s have a debate!
