LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Waves of the sea, Sword of Damocles

Editor,

The chains of bondage through FEMA bonds and taxes are being locked around the loins of the lambs. It has plundered the wealth of its servants. Whole units of government are competing for its yield. It is not the system of money. It’s a system of bonding the nation to hell.

The public mind is like the waves of the sea. It opens to every wind that flows. The bond and tax system see to it that it flows favorably in its direction filling the sails of his treasure boat along the waterways to his treasure island.

Today bonds and taxes are an oppressive racket sometimes duplicated and triplicated.

Talk with the tax delinquent bond servant and you will not think the bondage of bonds is exaggerated. How can this racket keep going when there are more takers than makers? Over 50 percent of your hard-earned money is stolen by fraud via taxes to support a government gone mad. Instead of holding public expenditures within bounds they seek out new tax sources continually. Taxes have drained away all the juices of the people. Bonds hang like a Sword of Damocles over our heads.

The taxpayer is now so outmatched that we cannot go on.

Second plank of the communist manifesto = heavy progressive taxation. Tax money collected by the federal government should be returned in large quantities to citizens under municipal jurisdiction. Remove the aged from the tax rolls.
