You must create a collection agency for me – but don’t call it that, heavens no, call it . the Internal Revenue Service. Through the “IRS” you must initiate a new tax on the people this year, 1913 16 . You are to call it the “Income Tax”. Start it out very small so the people won’t object to it, and keep increasing it very gradually each year over cash advance loans Hawaii the decades to come. Make it extremely complex, and then add a little more complexity each and every year 17 so that no one is able to figure out that there is actually no law that definitely requires people to pay it 18 .
Give the IRS power to put persons in jail if they fail to file a “tax return”. Give it the power to lien and levy their assets and sources of income if they won’t or can’t pay. And after they get used to that, give it the power to cancel their passport if they don’t pay 19 .
Keep the people in fear of the IRS so that they won’t even think of questioning it, or have time to if they did, or have the guts to do anything about it. (Keep in mind, you don’t need any tax money to build roads, schools or any other expenditures since you can always borrow an unlimited amount from me.)
The purpose of this tax is not to generate revenue, since none is needed 20 , but to control society. Through the IRS you are to create all kinds of tax breaks, credits, deductions and loopholes to guide society in the proper direction, as I will dictate to you privately. The people will be elated to follow this direction like sheep, since it will “save” them so much money. For weeks after they file their taxes they will be bragging to their workmates, friends and family members about how much money they saved in taxes because they were so smart that they could recognize and implement a few of the many complex tax reduction strategies.
Is the Federal Reserve “federal”?
The Federal Reserve is no more “federal” than Federal Express or Federal Mogul. In fact, you’ll find it listed among these corporations in the Yellow Pages – not in the government section.
“Federal” was put in the name to have people think it’s part of, or controlled by, the government. Having the members of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve nominated by the US President and confirmed by the Senate helps to further this illusion; and most people are still duped today.
You must collect enough of this tax every year to pay the accumulating interest on your loans from me
However, you must not let the people find out the real purpose of the tax. They must think that their hard earned tax money is going to build and maintain the roads, bridges, schools, courthouses, pay government employees, fund the war on terror, war on drugs, war on crime, war on poverty and all the other wars that are never won, but are for the purpose of creating more debt (I mean money) for me. You must keep funding all the wonderful social programs that I dream up for you, and you must implement them at my beck and call, because you are so far in debt to me, that I can call in your bankruptcy in an instant.
This is a very good deal for you and me both. You have an unlimited source of money, and that money comes back to me, after being legitimized by cycling through the people. I and my shareholders will be making immense profits on this money creation system. The only losers are the people, but that’s OK because they are not party to this contract.
