The Taxman Cometh – Criminals good for Business
1. a sum of money demanded by a government for its support or for specific facilities or services, levied upon incomes, property, sales, etc.
2. a burdensome charge, obligation, duty, or demand.
Notice how it is defined as ‘demanded by a government’ and a ‘burdensome charge’
1. oppressively heavy; onerous.
2. stressing; troublesome.
So apparently by common english definition tax is defined as a sum of money demanded by a government that is oppressively heavy and it causes stress. Heck, to be honest that is a PERFECT definition, is it not?
Taxes in Canada- we are all forced to pay them one way or another whether if you are Native or non Native they will get you.
So what exactly are taxes for? Well most people would love to believe that it’s for health care and to better the economy, which virtually is true but only a small percentage of taxes actually goes towards the benefits of the taxpayers.
The Canadian government has cleverly figured out ways to social engineer our conformed consent. After all the Canadian tax system is based on voluntary compliance and without our consent those taxes could not and would not exist.
According to reports by human rights organizations, these are the factors that increase the profit potential for those who invest in the prison industry complex:
. Jailing persons convicted of non-violent crimes, and long prison sentences for possession of microscopic quantities of illegal drugs. Federal law stipulates five years’ imprisonment without possibility of parole for possession of 5 grams of crack or 3.5 ounces of heroin, and 10 years for possession of less than 2 ounces of rock-cocaine or crack. A sentence of 5 years for cocaine powder requires possession of 500 grams – 100 times more than the quantity of rock cocaine for the same sentence. Most of those who use cocaine powder are white, middle-class or rich people, while mostly Blacks and Latinos use rock cocaine. In Texas, a person may be sentenced for up to two years’ imprisonment for possessing 4 ounces of marijuana. Here in New York, the 1973 Nelson Rockefeller anti-drug law provides for a mandatory prison sentence of 15 years to life for possession of 4 ounces of any illegal drug.
. The passage in 13 states of the “three strikes” laws (life in prison after being convicted of three felonies), made it necessary to build 20 new federal prisons. One of the most disturbing cases resulting from this measure was that of a prisoner who for stealing a car and two bicycles received three 25-year sentences.
. Longer sentences.
. The passage of laws that require minimum sentencing, without regard for circumstances.
. A large expansion of work by prisoners creating profits that motivate the incarceration of more people for longer periods of time.
