Here is a list of countries and their tax rates. Several of which have zero taxes (but what about the roads!?!?).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_tax_rates
There's only some small arabian oil countries that have no obvious tax.
All other countries at least have VAT.

Fortunately not all are subject to VAT, otherwise they would not have so many businesses flocking to them.

What the second poster said
IF you pay taxes you have all the right to complain about how something is going
Cause well you paid for it in one form or another.

Inflation is a form of taxation. If you hold 1 cent (0.01$) you are already taxed.

Money serves to regulate consumption and, thus, comprises failings thereabout.

I think new people will only come when a clear bottom has been found, too many price speculations are going on. The long term chart doesn't look particulalry attractive for people to jump in


The price is entirely speculative, and how will we ever know when a 'clear bottom has been found'?

There should be a term for a debt that big. How come US accumulated that big of a debt?

Because they meddle with everything and meddling with everything uses money. Thats why.

You're getting there.

Quote from: Peaceful Revolution Network link=http://www.xat.org/xat/moneyhistory.html
The 50 years of war left England in financial ruin. The government officials went begging for loans from guess who, and the deal proposed resulted in a government sanctioned, privately owned bank which could produce money from nothing, essentially legally counterfeiting a national currency for private gain.

Now the politicians had a source from which to borrow all the money they wanted to borrow, and the debt created was secured against public taxes.

You would think someone would have seen through this, and realised they could produce their own money and owe no interest, but instead the Bank of England has been used as a model and now nearly every nation has a Central Bank with fractional reserve banking at its core.

These central banks have the power to take over a nations economy and become that nations real governing force. What we have here is a scam of mammoth proportions covering what is actually a hidden tax, being collected by private concerns.

The country sells bonds to the bank in return for money it cannot raise in taxes. The bonds are paid for by money produced from thin air. The government pays interest on the money it borrowed by borrowing more money in the same way. There is no way this debt can ever be paid, it has and will continue to increase.

If the government did find a way to pay off the debt, the result would be that there would be no bonds to back the currency, so to pay the debt would be to kill the currency.
(Emphasis mine.)

When bitcoins are loaned by their miners with interest to be paid in bitcoins, they will find their bottom—both ethically and monetarily.

Quote from: Leo Tolstoy, Tolstoy (1988) by A. N. Wilson, p. 146. link=http://izquotes.com/quote/273222
The truth is that the State is a conspiracy designed not only to exploit, but above all to corrupt its citizens… Henceforth, I shall never serve any government anywhere.

Bahamas, Costa Rica, Turks & Caicos, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Ireland, Marshall Islands...etc.

That's the biggest deception of our life: do we really believe that "taxes" pay for roads building/maintenance? I really don't think so.

Who pay for road building and maintenance then?

Customers.

In USA, most roads are paid for by automobile licensing. But there are private toll roads. This is where a private person or company builds a road, and if you want to drive on it, you pay first. Private toll roads work better and usually are in better shape than government roads paid by licensing.

QE and eternal debt are simply methods for creating new money. Since the money is created like this, there is no need for taxes, except to keep the common people poor and enslaved.

its my country

strong simple like it


If you dont like it why dont you just leave the country.



leave is just for losers.
If I don't like my country I'll try to make it into a better place.

like it decent again


If you dont like it why dont you just leave the country.



Where can I go? The problem with the if you don't like it then leave logic is that the very people who use it are responsible for creating a situation where people can't leave the system as they have eliminated all alternatives, mainly because they know that we would leave if given the option and they'd be left with a failed system.

i agree but if you try explaining that type of thing to the type of person who would challenge you with the "why dont you just leave" argument they likely wont understand.


If you dont like it why dont you just leave the country.



1. where is the grass greener? 2. is it legal to go there?

they will say.... see so our country is the best quit complaining and causing problems,be thankful.

lol^


I can still not like it, from afar and feel bad for everyone still stuck there.

They will say worry about your own life man  Cheesy

^ because I've been paying my taxes lol. And because there probably is no country that really represents most of its people's views, and you can't just go somewhere and start your own. : /

not bad i can imagine the responce...

well you can just go and then see for yourself and then you find out this country is the best


If you dont like it why dont you just leave the country.



Because I have the right not to. Seems to be the simplest response.

response would be like, yeah and you get that right from your country  Cheesy

I guess my response would be, "I'll just wait a little longer and hope we can get some change."

sounds a little weak just my opinion guess its dependent on whos asking the question Smiley

it's kind of ridiculous to say that if you don't like something, uproot your life, livelihood, friends and family.. and then go live somewhere else, where you have nothing established. it's like saying "if you don't like this meal, then maybe you should just stop eating."

That's not a great analogy. If you don't like that meal, you should stop eating it.   Wink

No, the entire reason is that we haven't discovered a nearby wormhole that would allow us to transit light years through warped/folded space in an instant and return through it if no nearby habitable planets were near enough the other end. At light speed, the transit to the nearest possibly habitable planet would still take 20.3 years, which isn't reasonable. IIRC, at speed of, let alone faster than, light travel isn't nearly possible with the combined strength of all nukes on earth.

Lol. If you're talking about the movie Interstellar, I haven't seen it yet, so no more spoilers please. xD
Anyway, would we really do anything differently if we could colonize another world? Or just keep on doing the same things and hope things get better in time?

I can't afford to watch movies.

I'm only talking about a single person going to another world, in response to the "If you don't like it why don't you just leave the country?" BS

It is technologically impossible at this point to be free from "it" (human rights violations).

There is no country that doesn't violate human rights, and there is currently no known way to reasonably commute to earth 2.

Part of the reason for that is most people don't agree what earth 2 should be like. : /
Those that have power now certainly don't want change, and the rest of us can't get together and agree on what to do about it.

No, the entire reason is that we haven't discovered a nearby wormhole that would allow us to transit light years through warped/folded space in an instant and return through it if no nearby habitable planets were near enough the other end. At light speed, the transit to the nearest possibly habitable planet would still take 20.3 years, which isn't reasonable. IIRC, at speed of, let alone faster than, light travel isn't nearly possible with the combined strength of all nukes on earth.

Lol. If you're talking about the movie Interstellar, I haven't seen it yet, so no more spoilers please. xD
Anyway, would we really do anything differently if we could colonize another world? Or just keep on doing the same things and hope things get better in time?

Even though there isn't a way that one might think reasonable for getting to earth 2, there is a way. Consider. All people die. If they believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, they will be saved, and ultimately make it to the new heavens and the new earth, the real earth 2.
