Can We Tell the Truth About Taxes?

Let's start telling the truth, can we?

1) A society built upon low taxes will never be healthy - it may be good for a very few at the top, but children and schools, bridges and highways and just about everyone and everything else increasingly has a hard time of it.

2) A society built upon taxes, even high taxes, will be healthy - infrastructure will be maintained, education sustained, medical care available to every citizen, and then some. If we have to fight a war, it won't drain the economy.

3) Taxes, even high taxes, are a job-creator - when government is funding and supporting the economy, everyone prospers - from the aerospace industry to the medical worker to the school teacher and to the small business owner.

4) Taxes, even high taxes, narrow the gap between rich and poor, not only for individuals and families but for states and municipalities. Everyone benefits everywhere!

Very nicely said.

Interesting points! I also agree that taxes narrow the gap between the rich and the poor. The fact that taxes do not hold anyone in exemption is a good way to tell that we are all being held fairly by the government. Thanks for sharing such an enlightening read! All the best!

I like your views and opinion about taxes; it’s raw and quite true. Taxes somehow defines a society’s status, and is as stable as its people’s capability to maintain a good attitude towards their taxes. Doing taxes is one thing, but maintaining a good outlook and stability is easier said than done. Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us. Have a great day!
