What are taxes for if there are none?

Postby Nigel OOi » Fri, 09 Sep 2005 12:46 pm

Taxes are not to make money more and more by paying the government to recycle the money through the economy. Taxes are there to enforce social discipline to save, so that the people get more for their money is the only advantage for people paying taxes compulsory. If taxes are to make more money for the economy by recycling the money at a great velocity, then it must be a user pays philosophy, not services not provided for the inadequately equippted person, but paid for anyway through taxes. Forced to pay makes the money disappear not appear generously.===So in following that rational sense, of user pays, taxes then must be of the voluntary nature so that the user of the tax system will get savings of the kind in the economy and not in the bank account. Forced into the taxation loop does not make that kind of savings and the money is lost in the system, not in the economy for that individual.===Who then will want to fill out the tax form to such an effect? It is left to the poor to do their taxes for a greater investment strategy so that in time to come they may become very rich because their investment makes their money multiply.===NOst.

Nige (if I may be so familiar),

Lay off the paint thinners mate. It's driving you batty. Seriously. I'd stop now if I were you - you'll be thankful later...
