Nikki on: Taxes

Help us Rex Tillerson, etc!

I have only one brief statement to make about taxes – mainly because I am very uninformed about this topic and don’t want to come across as one of those people who have constant suggestions about how to do things when they have no idea what they are talking about.  There are too many people on the internet posting their views on topics of which they see from only one point-of-view.  To truly understand a situation, it must be examined from all sides and with an open mind.

Taxes are a necessary evil.  No one wants to pay them, but it is how we are able to field a first-rate military, build and maintain roads and interstate highways, and pay for government services which keep us safe – just to give you just a few examples.  For quite some time I have heard that big business and the super-wealthy aren’t being taxed in an equitable fashion to smaller enterprises and the middle and lower classes.  If this is true, I can say three things:  kudos to them for being crafty enough to find those fiduciary loopholes, and enjoy the profits that you have worked so hard to attain.

The third thing I wish to say is that it would be amazingly wonderful if you – big business and the upper echelon of our society – were to take the gains you would have spent on equitable tax payments and give it to those whom are in need.  Our country is in trouble, and there are good American and immigrant families whom are suffering due to our economic dilemma.  People are starving and losing their homes.  Jobs are being lost and cannot be replaced.  There is no reason any of this should be happening in a country as prosperous as ours.  We are all Americans and we must all tend to the needs of our nation and its people.  Lets help each other – all of us – to get through this difficult time.  If you see someone struggling to survive, assist them however you can.  Its okay to pay less taxes – just be sure to equal things out by donating to charities and helping your fellow countrymen and women when they are in need.
