Letter to the Editor

The Income Tax – An Open Door to Corruption

web posted March 14, 2013

Dear Editor,
History has repeatedly demonstrated when a people and their leaders lose their virtue, freedom perishes. It has recently come to light that Senator Robert Menendez (D) of New Jersey allegedly sponsored and promoted legislation that would benefit a major donor to his political campaign. The legislation in question would have granted special tax credits and grants to a company in which his donor had invested heavily.

This is how entrenched politicians maintain their hold on power. They manipulate the tax code to reward those contributing to their re-election campaigns. Without the income tax they would not have this “tool” to play “scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” game. Ever wonder how often similar events occur each year or why professional politicians love the income tax so?

There is a bill in Congress that would rectify this anti-virtuous system. It is “The Fair Tax Act.” It takes control of taxation out of the hands of politicians. We must eliminate this corrupt system we have in place before we are completely ruined. As another principle stated long ago says, “Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.”
