Another thing that points to the building blocks of communism being embedded in America is the graduated income tax system we have. Democrats call it ‘paying your fair share’ but we saw especially during Obama’s administration that the party that demands ‘pay your fair share’ too often didn’t pay any of their ‘fair share’. A new report just out from the Internal Revenue Service reveals that 36 of President Obama’s executive office staff owe the country $833,970 in back taxes. These people working for Mr. Fair Share apparently haven’t paid any share, let alone their fair share.
Previous reports have shown how well-paid Obama’s White House staff is, with 457 aides pulling down more than $37 million last year. That’s up seven workers and nearly $4 million from the Bush administration’s last year.
Nearly one-third of Obama’s aides make more than $100,000 with 21 being paid the top White House salary of $172,200, each. 1
Al ‘The Race Pimp’ Sharpton has a long history of not paying taxes: The Rev. Sharpton, the civil-rights leader who has become a close confidant to President Barack Obama and New York City Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio, has more than $4.5 million in state and federal tax liens outstanding against him and his for-profit businesses. 2 Biden himself appears to have been lax ‘paying his fair share’. President Biden may have improperly avoided paying Medicare taxes before he took office and could owe the IRS as much as $500,000, according to a Congressional Research Service report. 3
The progressive income tax that we have is one of the tools of the communists that helps undermine a society. In 1913 the income tax was ratified though there have been some doubts about that.4 From the research that I’ve done it is seriously questionable that it was ratified, It was not opposed by Taft, a republican, and didn’t become ‘ratified’ until Woodrow Wilson, a socialist democrat to the core, was in office. It is understandable why Wilson did not object to it.
The next signal that communism has crept into our government is the fact that we see the democrat party demanding an exorbitant tax on an inheritance. What has become known as The Death Tax is actually a step towards the elimination of the right to an inheritance. Right now if your estate is worth $5.4 million the tax is 40%. If the estate goes to a spouse there is usually no tax but if it goes to the children then the tax is assessed. I would like to know why the government feels that it is entitled to any of the estate, period. I remember hearing Nancy Pelosi attempting to explain the tax saying that if the estate goes to the children that the children didn’t earn it so the government has the right to take 40%. Well, the government didn’t earn it either. There are ways to get around this gross violation of your rights by putting the assets into a trust. Taxation is nothing but theft anyway and that is definitely taxation without representation the principle that we fought the Revolutionary War over. It starts with this and works its way up to larger percentages and will end up with laws that outlaw inheritances altogether.
The confiscation of property is also a sign that communism has crept into our government. The government does this with tax liens and outright seizures. Some seizures I can understand like drug dealers, human traffickers, and money laundering but way too many times it is an opportunity for a crooked cop to take your property and never charge you with a crime. “Asset forfeiture is the government’s new, twisted form of guilt by association. Only it’s not the citizenry being accused of wrongdoing, just their money,” said constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of Battlefield America: The War on the American People. “What this adds up to is a paradigm in which Americans no longer have to be guilty to be stripped of their property, rights and liberties. All you have to be is in possession of something the government wants.”
Civil asset forfeiture is a practice where government agents (usually the police) seize private property they “suspect” may be connected to criminal activity, then whether or not any crime is actually proven to have taken place, the government keeps the citizen’s property, often divvying it up with the local police who did the initial seizure. Relying on the topsy-turvy legal theory that one’s property can not only be guilty of a crime but is guilty until proven innocent, government agencies have eagerly cashed in on this revenue scheme, often under the pretext of the War on Drugs. By asserting that someone’s property, a building or a large of amount of cash for example, is tied to an illegal activity, the government—usually, the police—then confiscates the property for its own uses, and it’s up to the property owner to jump through a series of legal hoops to prove that the property was not connected to criminal activity or that the owner had no involvement or knowledge of the criminal activity. But challenging these “takings” in court can cost the owner more than the value of the confiscated property itself. 5
America has seen way too much of the influence of communism be forced onto the population. Most people do not even see it happening even when you point it out. This is why we need a complete overhaul of our so-called education system. It has become nothing more than indoctrination camps for the liberal ideology of socialism/communism. FDR even stated: In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way. Trump exposed the Deep State and they hate him for it. They’ve tried to stop him but have only delayed him. We must stand with him so he can do what I believe God has called him to do. He stated recently that if we lose 2024, we lose America. The choice is ours. Freedom or tyranny. Let us not forget the powerful speech by Patrick Henry: I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death.
