here, watch this:

I've seen it and it is a silly video. I am not a wealth collector. Bill Gates is a wealth collector who unlike, myself has no talents or curiosities, so rather than retiring at a very early age like he could have and doing something interesting with his life, he spent decades of long days directing the production of mediocre products, living a mediocre life and marrying a mediocre woman. After finally retiring in his mid-50's, he now devotes his time to nonsense bleeding heart projects that increase third world overpopulation. He is a nice guy but not an example of the kind of life I live or would ever want to live.

Have you seen this one? It is much more up to date than yours:
Even Bill has had enough...

It was not Mao, Hitler, and Stalin who funded or manufactured the gun, tanks, and bombs that terrorized and murdered so many millions. It was the good people of China, Germany, and Russia who felt obligated to hand over the fruits of their labor to those wearing the mantle of authority.

Likewise, with all the government bureaucrats, the abusive law enforcers, the corrupt politicians, their buildings, the vehicles, their computers, their utilities, their salaries...

We are the ones paying for all of that, and perhaps most ironically, when it comes to the IRS and all of their tax collectors, WE are the ones paying them to rob us!

Everything of value in the world has come from the efforts of productive people. While the political class can only steal and destroy. In short, the good has always funded the evil and that will continue to be the case as long as the good people IMAGINE they have a moral obligation to surrender a portion of what they earn in over as taxes to those who CLAIM they have the right to rule.

Taxes are not the price we pay for civilized society. Taxes are how civilized society pays for its own destruction. Taxation is no different from a mafia protection racket; where a gang claims to be protecting you, while that same gang threatens to hurt you if you don't pay up! Yeah, while the gang may sometimes go after other people, you know that if you don't pay their protection fees, that they are the ones who will be at your door next.

Simpletons (you) argue that because taxes pay for roads, defense, protection, and help for the poor, ending taxes would mean no roads, no defense, no protection and no help for the poor.

In any context other than politics, such an argument would immediately be recognized as COMPLETELY invalid. It would be akin to a common criminal stealing $100 from you, handing you a sandwich and then arguing that you should thank him for having robbed you or otherwise, you would have starved. HAHAHAHA! Stupids, they fooled you into thinking you can't feed yourselves!

“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.”

Trump of course silly!
