Where are your taxes going?

26 October 2012, 11:44
E-tolls are just one more way that the government is enslaving the common working class man, and to make it worse, they are now going to charge you for the new improved roads. But hang on here, why are we paying taxes then? Is it not government’s responsibility to maintain and look after the roads in any case? How come they expect us to fork out more of your hard earned cash?  

I mean these new hi ways was there to begin with they were built is the 1960s and they were never tolled, so what has changed, how come the government never tolled us in the 1960s t. I mean   today there are more tax payers than in the 1960s, that means that there is more money for the government to spend, and then the government can then afford to pay for these roads with out taxing us with tolls. How did these roads get built in the 1960s?

The problem comes with the way they have modeled there government, the set up of the beast, it is of such a nature that they have no control anymore.

You see they set up them self’s up for failure, instead of introducing , free market system the government gave us a mix of socialist ,Marxist economy were they are trying to uplift the masses themselves, The reason for this is  , they have to be seen by the masses as doing something to improve there lives  . but this is now failing just like it did not work in Russia, the down side is in order for them to keep the system in place ,they have to  find more income , and at the end of the day the tax payer is taxed to the hilt ,

Think about it , we pay  p.a.y.e   they take +- 20 %  then we pay v.a.t  that is 14 %  then if you look at things like  cigarettes we pay on average R 9.50 tax per packet we also pay up to 45% for  booze , then there is ESKOM  who is  also a government institution  who is seriously ripping us off  already who is now proposing a 50 % increase . and then there is the tax we pay on petrol , at the end of the day by just buying stuff   and earning a living  we probably are paying about 50 to 60 % of our wages over to tax .

But hay that’s not All , now you have to pay for using a road you are already paying for !!!

The only way that this is going to change is if we the poor masses change, we should stop this system were we become a slave to the government and put people on welfare and put a system in place were we can get business to generate jobs , and get our economy going  , were we can generate growth to a level of 13 % and get people to buy into this country, and make it worth there wile to invest in us . If we don’t do this we are going to end up like every other socialist state in Europe   BANKRUPT!!!!!!

Instead what do we get, we get a government that buys votes with communist policies in order to stay in power so they can skim some of the crème of for themselves personally. We get unemployment because business can’t generate more jobs; we get a population who is getting dependent on the state who does not want to be productive; and we get to be taxed to the hilt when we are working. And when the masses get upset and protest, because some of the gravy has disappeared   the government just calms them with the race card, nice!!!!

YOU can fool some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time!!!
