The Nanny State-We love our government
(NaturalNews) The supreme law of the United States has just voted 5-4 in favor of a National DNA database. In Maryland v. King, the court upheld the right of police to arrest and forcibly take DNA samples from individuals…
We are not the only ones waking up. The government is waking up to the fact that our numbers are growing daily, that the message is spreading that all is not well and that worse is yet to come.
Military Vet Arrested; Guns Confiscated: His Crime - Defending his home from Burglar
A Military veteran living in Oregon, 36-year-old Corey Thompson, has been arrested and has had his firearms confiscated after defending his home from an intruder.
The future seems bleak. There’s no need for me to list and link the abuses of power that are imposed on us by the government, unless you have been living in a cave for the last year or so you will know about the constant erosion of our civil liberties, the removal of our rights is accelerating.
Everyday another piece of intrusive, nonsensical and costly legislation determines what we can and can’t do. Not outlandish things, simple things, everyday things, things that we should be able to take for granted like catching rainwater, growing veggies wherever we like on our property, making a phone call without the intrusion of government eavesdroppers and information gatherers…our sense of self reliance and independence is rapidly eroding with many citizens becoming dependent on the state.
When governments become repressive, when they burden citizens with excessive regulation, high taxes and cost of goods, when decent jobs are scarce and wages are low…people fight back.
Economists have long thought the underground economy--the vast, unregulated market encompassing everything from street vendors to unlicensed cab drivers--was bad news for the world economy. Now, it's taking on a new role as one of the last safe havens in a darkening financial climate.
According to the Report on the Underground Economy, today's cybercriminals are thriving off of information they are gathering without permission from consumers and businesses, especially in the area of identity theft, banking and credit card fraud. The government’s demand for the Social Security number as the universal identifier has allowed thieves easier access to private information of consumers.
The underground economy results from many factors, including criminal activity. But mostly it arises from ordinary businessmen and workers who are evading taxes and government regulations. In various surveys, the tax burden has always been identified as the main cause for the growth of the shadow economy, according to Schneider and Enste:
A recent IMF study found that the composition of taxation was very important; high taxes on small businesses and the self-employed were most likely to lead to underground economic activity. One indication that taxes are stimulating tax evasion in the United States is that the amount of income reported on tax returns has fallen compared to the amount of income paid as calculated by the Commerce Department. This income gap tends to rise and fall with the tax burden. Raising tax rates too high drives firms into the underground economy, the study concluded.
A recent wave of state tobacco tax increases, designed to pump revenue into cash-strapped local governments, is inspiring an increasingly dangerous cigarette smuggling industry where big profits lure violent criminal gangs and drug traffickers into the booming illegal market, according to law enforcement officials and court records, reports USA Today.
Larry Penninger, acting director of the tobacco diversion unit of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), says investigations and prosecutions involving tobacco trafficking have been increasing as smugglers flood high-tax states with cigarettes from low-tax states.
