The Income Tax and IRS Squelch Freedom

Personal Freedom and Prosperity 101: Personal PowerThe distinctive principle of Western social philosophy is individualism.It aims at the creation of a sphere in which the individual is free to think, to choose, and to act without being restrained by the interference of the social apparatus of coercion and oppression, the State. All the spiritual and material achievements of Western civilization were the result of the operation of this idea of liberty. —Ludwig von Mises

According to Obama, the Government Built Your Business

Barack Obama has yet again taken credit away from individual success and attributed it to the government, sending small business owners one simple message: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” If this doesn’t further prove that Obama is unfit to lead a country based on the splendor of a free market system, then I’m at a loss as to what will.

US Economy threatened in wake of Obama's Taxmageddon

Obama seems to have one goal in mind this election: creating an even greater gap between Republicans and Democrats. I must admit, he’s doing a great job of it, stoking class warfare and feeding the media and his supporters left-wing lies. Did you hear the GOP is nothing but a bunch of wealthy and corrupt people that have no interest in the good of the lower and middle class citizens?

Why We Can't Tax Ourselves Out of a Ditch

During the nasty back-and-forth in the debt ceiling debate, inflamed rhetoric dominated discourse, and left reasonable debate trailing in the dust. Any opposition to a multi-billion dollar tax increase is seen as the artifact of a radical faction of Congress.

Census Data: Americans Migrating From High to Low Tax States

On Tuesday, Census Bureau director Robert Groves announced the first results of the 2010 Census. The findings were not so surprising. Due to population changes, 12 House seats will shift. States with low or no income tax gained more representative seats in the House. Those states with a high income tax lost seats.

Washington’s Proposed Income Tax Will Stifle Economic Growth

Washington State is often listed as one of the best places to live, retire and open a business. Home to some of the fastest-growing industries in the nation, Washington was ranked by Forbes as the second best state for businesses in 2009. Furthermore, Washington was recently featured on U.S News and Reports’ list of the five best states to build a nest egg. But all that could change soon.

It Takes a Tea Party to Start a Tax Revolution: II

Democracy and Power 107:  Counting votesSuccessful … politicians are insecure and intimidated men. They advance politically only as they placate, appease, bribe, seduce, bamboozle or otherwise manage to manipulate the demanding and threatening elements in their constituencies. – Walter Lippmann (1889-1974), American Journalist and Author

Help Fight Taxes and Spending in Oregon

I just wanted to take a minute and update you on our efforts to fight taxes and spending in Oregon. Many of you will be excited to learn that we are planning Taxpayer Tea Parties in multiple cities across Oregon! This is because of the overwhelming interest in joining our effort to fight wasteful government spending and the massive bailouts.You can rsvp for these events by visiting IamWithRick.com and signing up to attend the tea party closest to you.As CNBC's Rick Santelli pointed out, it's time for the American peopleto defend free markets and take to the streets in protest!SIGN UP NOW for the protest closest to you! We will send you updateson the events as we get them.Also, if you care about wasteful spending and higher taxes, you mightwant to take a minute to send Governor Kulangoski a message. As you know, we’ve been closely following one bad idea after another that has come out of Salem.  First it was a massive cigarette tax hike.  Then it was plans for a tax on mileage, higher registration and title fees, a gasoline tax hike, and even an outrageous 1900% beer tax hike!  So far, it’s been all taxes and no cuts that go after waste and the regulations that burden businesses in Oregon.  Now, rather than trying to lift the financial burdens of hurting Oregonians, legislators are floating more plans to rake in more cash.  These include raising the state income tax, an even bigger gasoline tax hike, and taking away Oregon’s kicker!  States across the board are facing budget problems, but taking more money out of the pockets of people who are already struggling to make ends meet isn’t the answer.  Take Action and tell your elected officials that you oppose more tax and spend plans.  Like everyone else, Oregon’s leaders need to reexamine the books and stretch our dollars a little further.
