Can you? This started as a rant I was sending to Facebook and then I decided to push it here. You see Chris made a post on Facebook yesterday, the crux of which was this image.
The the thread predictably devolved into people saying how taxation is not a form a slavery because you can have property.* Guess he missed all those taxes on that property where if you don’t pay they seize your property (so in reality rent). And my personal favorite, where the state can take your property under eminent domain and give you pennies on the dollar, if the state feels like spending the pennies. (Seriously check out that link… The City of Seattle is seizing a 103 year old woman’s property, currently a parking lot, to make it a parking lot. I can’t make this crap up.)
So don’t tell me I’m not a slave when there is nothing voluntary about my relationship with my government and I live in fear of them deciding to seize my property without cause and me with no legal recourse. Remember, this is the land of the free, where the mob can vote to have the state steal your stuff to give it to them.
If everyone saw equal services from the state, then I might not call it slavery, but entitlements are horse shit. I should not be taxed to feed someone else’s kids because they squandered their money on a big screen TV.
Go ahead and say I have no heart. Know why I don’t have kids yet? Because I’m paying for someone else’s. But remember I’m the heartless asshole for merely being the responsible person and staying within my means.
I’m paying more now for my healthcare too, why? To subsidize people who didn’t want to take care of it themselves. Pardon me while I say screw all of you who support this BS.
*He also made a comment about the ballot box being involved so it wasn’t really against your will. Uhh, so because the mob votes to steal my stuff makes it some how morally ok and just? WTFO!? Seriously, how does the fact a ballot box being involved make it OK for the state to take, by force, property from one person and give it to another. If it was really that person’s property it couldn’t be taken in such a way now could it?
**As someone who’s now working as a contractor, I’m well versed in exactly how much I’m paying out in taxes and it’s far beyond most people. For every dollar I earn I see about .46 cents. I could easily start a family with all that money being dumped into a government who spends more frivolously than a drunken sailor… But I’m not a slave since I can rent property from the state and they can seize at any time to do with as they please.
I’m going to end the rant here because I think I’ve made my point. But seriously if you think you’re not a slave merely because they’ve provided you some illusions of freedom, you’re an idiot. The greatest trick the government ever pulled was making the people think they’re free when they’re really slaves, they just don’t know it yet.

Yes! You’re one of the few who gets this. AIt’sit’sdd the fact that the popo can show up in the middle of the night on suspicion of “whatever” and shoot you dead in your bedroom because you weren’t quick enough to comply with conflicting commands while people screamed and swore and shined lights in your eyes. And none of them will lose their job or even get a day off without pay.
All the crap about how we’re not slaves or it’s not that bad yet is just people too lazy to get involved rationalizing their complacency.
All true… And the more you make, the deeper in ‘slavery’ to the man you go…
Ah, but this is “social justice” meaning that this how the oppressed (in their minds) get even for all the wrongs (in their minds) of the past.
Our president is of the “social justice” mentality, and so his reaction to your pointing out the horrors being perpetrated on Americans would be along the lines of “Well, yeah; It’s OUR turn now, see. Quit yer bitchin’ and take your medicine. You’re only just beginning to find out what it’s like, you rich American Imperialist scum.”
Just think Hamas verses Israel – it’s about the same thing. Understand the mindset and you’ll never again be surprised, or feel incredulous, in the face of this stuff.
You know your not going to do any thing
It’s just like the old days when slaves were in its going to be thay tell you what to do and all you can say yes master.
Did I say that we were going to go wreck up the place over it currently? No I didn’t. All I’m saying is people need to realize the situation they are in because that’s the first step that has to happen before anything can even hope to change.
