This recent documentary on the IRS shows the main purpose of the federal income tax is to redistribute wealth to those in power and control society, not to raise revenue.
It is a tool that allows them to manipulate and control the population and put them in a role of servitude.
This movie was in the theaters this summer, but has now been uploaded to the Web. So if you want to save yourself the rental fee, you can now watch this nearly two-hour movie for free on Google Video.
You might have already been exposed to this material, but if you have it is always good to review it. If you haven't seen or read these arguments then you need to see this movie to have a clear understanding of what the U.S. government is doing.
Do yourself a favor and watch this film.
Few of your tax dollars are being spent on useful and vital functions. Even the government agencies that are supposed to protect you are often hopelessly compromised and corrupt.
And while corporations get out of paying through loopholes, the tax burden falls primarily on you. The drug industry, for example, enjoys great tax advantages.
Not only are its research and development costs deductible, but so are its massive marketing expenses. Drug companies also get 17-year government-granted monopolies on their new drugs in the form of patent protection, even if their "new" drugs are only minor variations on older ones.
The film helps explain some of the philosophical positions that have allowed the United States to have companies produce essentially unregulated drugs that kill tens of thousands of individuals, and worse yet unleash unjustified involvements in Iraq that are costing our country over a trillion dollars and killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people.
