WTF Political Cartoons

12 notes

antinwo:

Better idea: hide gold and silver instead of cotton paper.  Dollars lose value through inflation which turns into a hidden tax to the people.  The more cash the Federal Reserve prints, the more gold & silver go up in price.  If 40 years ago you saved $1,000,000, today it would be worth about $1,000 while the price of gold in the last 40 years has gone from $5/oz. to $1600/oz.  Before the Federal Reserve, workers got on average $5 or an ounce of gold.  Today there is no backing and minimum wage gives you $320 at $8x40 hrs BEFORE ILLEGAL INCOME TAXES, less than a third of an ounce of gold.

There is a finite amount of precious metal, while human population is on a growth curve. You do realize the very simple problem here?
Also “illegal income taxes”, lol. Yeah, the power of taxation wasn’t originally in the constitution. Because the US founding fathers were rich fuckers who wanted to keep their own property. They also were slaveowners, and thus didn’t count people of African decent as human beings. In the long run, it becomes apparent that any country above the size of a small city state is going to need taxes, which anyone with even elementary understanding of political science and economics knows.
