Just the opposite. Our current educational system is intended to
indoctrinate Socialism to as wide an extent as possible.
> Adam, isn't paying taxes an act of patriotism?
No. In fact: the tipping-point for the founding of our country was
the protest of excessive taxation and taxation without representation.
Our system of taxation is armed thugs pointing a gun at your head and
demanding one pay the "protection fees" or suffer the consequences.
Those "fees" go into supporting the purchase of more power and more
leverage - the remainder goes to support the half of the country that
doesn't have to pay taxes, the intent of course being to buy those
votes thereby insuring the continuation of the reign of terror, and
the increase of burden assumed by the producers to support the
Right now, we're only required to collect sales tax for states where
we have a physical presence. In our case, five states. With the new
system, we'd be required to completely change the business rules in
our systems, and assume the burden of having to distribute those
funds which is a tremendous expense in accounting.
The upshot is that everything in our catalog will go up by 10% to the
end-user to cover the increased overhead.
[Our attorney assures me I couldn't get away with instituting a
big-government support test and adjusting the end-user prices based
on that, so everyone has to pay.]
The idea behind state taxes being collectable in that state and not
outside of it was to prevent the Stupid of individual states from
splattering into less stupid states. The King of Stupid has other
ideas, however, and once they started dumping on the Tenth Amendment
to the Constitution of the United States, they just haven't stopped.
Yeah, my grandmother sacrificed everything to escape, my mom in
swaddling, because America promised something better. Sucker!
