Tax

This is a post about tax, tax evasion and tax avoidance, but before i get onto it i want to explain this, Tax is theft , if you look at Wiki and its meaning of "Theft" you get this

"In common usage, theft is the taking of another person's property without that person's permission or consent with the intent to deprive the rightful owner of it"

In short, if you don't vote you are not giving your consent to be taxed, so any tax that is forced on you (without your consent) is theft.

I wanted to get that out the way because i want to talk about tax avoidance and evasion, but not by the rich but by the poor/working class. There is not a day when we hear from some spoiled brat from the left complain about the rich baby eating Tories avoiding tax (Tho avoiding tax is perfectly legal and is to be encouraged) but very rarely the poor doing it, Is it because they have no idea that it happens?

There is something in this country which is called "the black market" ( i hate that term) , i prefer "the free market" , a place where people barter and compromise on a price for a product/service and the Government gets zero directly from it, See i can go to the right place and ask the right person and get my hands on most things from cheap cigarettes to DVDs and cheap booze and i am not the only one, many people i know do it for the simple reason "its cheaper" , we know when things get tough people look to save anything they can, a few quid on a packet of fags is a no brainier, getting the new film for half the price another no brainier.

The rich maybe able to afford to pay accountants to avoid tax, but here, in my world we find much cheaper ways of avoiding/evading tax and we also get the bonus of starving the beast.

So the next time you hear someone on the tele moan about about tax avoidance and evasion remember that us in the real world do it all the time and don't bat an eyelid.

People say that "criminals are always one step in front of the police", i want to rephrase it "The smart people are always one step in front of the state" and that does include the poor!

Final thought for you lefties, If you are so against cuts then i suggest you donate more of your own money to the state before demanding more of other peoples money!

"In common usage, theft is the taking of another person's property without that person's permission or consent with the intent to deprive the rightful owner of it"

Remember , Tax IS theft.
