I have been working on this idea for a while, but I keep running into roadblocks. My business has been a bit off this year. The money is not coming in as fast as the last few years. I want to keep living at the same level as in years past, but it is getting harder. In actuality, I want to live even better, but darn the money. Working for a living is not cutting it so I am trying to figure out how I can start taxing people.
I got the idea from my state legislature as well as the US Congress. What you do is not worry how much things cost, or how much you spend. You just keep spending it, and when you need more, you simply increase the taxes on your constituents. When they ask why, you tell them they need to be happy to pay taxes, people are counting on you, it is good for the country, etc. If someone really wants answers, you explain to them that they must be in favor of starving kids or being cruel to minorities.
The basic premise here, and it would work great for me, is that you never ever even consider cutting your spending. Oh, once in a while you may elude to a possibility of a cut, but you never actually really mean it. You just want the taxpayers to think you may really do it someday. A bit tricky, but I could probably pull it off.
So, in a nutshell, I would never have to cut my spending, and I could keep living really well. I just need to figure out how I can start taxing people. Any ideas?
