Render unto Caesar

03 July 2013, 18:02

                              RENDER  UNTO  CAESAR

Finally the time has arrived to pay what is due to Caesar. And Is not paid according to Caesar’s will draconian steps will be taken to access the deficit. 

Now seeing that Caesar is the state then when does the state become a thief? Who and how is the will of Caesar manipulated in order to maintain his monopoly of state funds and power to  the utmost of the states judicial power over the citizens.  This morning I visited a shop and left my vehicle in the hands of a car-watch.

I paid him R10.00 on my return. This person told me that he and his wife each receive a state pension in the region of R1100-00 per month. He is a car-watch simply to earn that bit extra to make life more bearable.  He does not pay tax and some months the Car-watch job does increase his income substantially.  Most of his car-income is usually in the form of R5. 00 per car and some days his gross income can exceed R70.00 per day. Let us assume most car-watches over the entire country earn R70.00 per day then we can come to the conclusion that Caesar is coming off badly. 

The car-watches are earning R490 per week and if there are a million car watches in the country then their total income would be around R490 million per week.  Now this sum of money will not and cannot feed the plentiful coffers of Caesar because it has fallen outside the system of taxation.  If car-watchers paid tax there would be less car-watches  earning less and Caesar will come off the worst because the money will still enter the system via expenditure by the car-watches to provide for their immediate  needs  but it would extend  throughout the entire country.

So the car-watch is at the same level as the temporary worker:  Gardener, domestic worker,  unskilled worker, tea maker, office cleaner etc and dozens of other work. How may of us declare the gardeners pay when taxation is calculated or the domestic’s pay?.

In many Cases the unskilled worker may have the ability from previous jobs to perform better than his counterparts. Had this been so then the state may score from this person’s income provided it is still at a level above the minimum level of tax.
