Quotational Therapy: Part 2 -- Founding Fathers, On Taxes.

The "No Taxation without Representation!" Edition-

"No taxes can be devised which are not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant."
-George Washington, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796.


"...in this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes."
-Benjamin Franklin, letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy, November 13, 1789.


"Excessive taxation ... will carry reason & reflection to every man's door, and particularly in the hour of election."
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to John Taylor, November 26, 1798.


"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee of everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it."
-Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, April 6, 1816.

Imagine working hard to build a company to provide for your family...
Imagine your family left alone without you...
Imagine the government coming in and saying, we get half...
Paris Hilton's Grandfather worked hard and was fortunate enough to provide for his family...
Incentive to work and be able to make a fortune is a blessing of freedom.It should be everyones right in our country! Each of us will be taxed no matter...You may not like how someone is spending. It is just like food stamps! You may not like the way these individuals are spending The food stamps...BUT!... It is too bad...It is what we do...It is apart of being an American. It is our responsibility as citizens of a free society to be free to prosper, and see that freedom continues to grow and our entire society will prosper!
