Taxes is the amount of money that you give the Government. Do you want to give the Government a lot of your money, or do you want to give the Government very little of your money?

In America for 200 years (nobody paid Federal or State taxes. In 1913 a law was passed that asked Americans to start paying Federal taxes. This law was passed to help pay for the cost of the Civil War.

Americans never had to pay State taxes until 1930, this was also to help pay for war.

Those taxes were only suppose to be (temporary) to cover the cost of war, but then America got into more wars and those tax laws were left in place to help cover the cost of war.

The Iraq war has cost 2 TRILLION dollars. Money that the U.S. Government took from Americans paycheck is now being used to pay for that war. A war that most Americans were against, a war that should never have been started.

U.S. politicians bomb Libya, which cost billions of dollars. Money that the U.S. Government took from Americans paycheck is now being used to pay for that war. Americans tax payers had no say so in that war.

Politicians can do anything they want to with the money that they take from you in taxes. A large percentage of the money that is taken from Americans in taxes is wasted on unnecessary things such as war and wasteful spending.


When you go to work do you want to give the Government a lot of your hard earned money in taxes so they can waste it? Or do you prefer to keep your own money?

Keep in mind that for 200 years nobody in America paid taxes, and the country functioned just fine.

1. High taxes means that you give the Government a lot of your money.

2. Low taxes means that you give the Government very little of your money. Tax cuts means that you give the Government less of your money than you are giving them now, and you get to keep more of your hard earned money.


There are actually people that want Americans to give the Government more of their money. They want Americans to give the Government more of their paychecks.

The Republicans are trying to create a bill to CUT TAXES, which means that Americans get to keep more of their money, a bill where the Government gets less of your money.

When you hear people talking about taxes, keep in mind that for 200 years NO American had to pay taxes and the country functioned just fine.
