What the fuck is a non-socialist tax

Every dollar in your pocket has already been taxed before you even spend it .
A buck in your pocket represents about 1.86 earned .

@zonavar68 sounds about right. The way I see it , at my salary , I get more services than I pay for .
I put the break even number here in US at about 200k a year : if you earn less you鈥檙e getting a good value for your tax money . If you earn more you鈥檙e not .

@AthrillatheHunt That's interesting because if you looked at that based on what the minimum wages are in the USA and Australia, and factor in exchange rates between USD and AUD, you'd then have to say the break-even point is about A$400k, and nearly nobody earns that much in wages or salary here.

@zonavar68 Then it sounds like , by my logic, that the majority of your countrymen get a fair value for their tax dollars .
Many professionals earn north of 200k a year here in the greater NYC area .

Here in Australia it's taxed twice - federal 'excise' fixed this year at 44.2 C per L for all grades of petrol and diesel sold at retail outlets (but cut in half at the last federal budget until Sep 28th as a 'vote buying' measure for the federal election happening in two weeks), plus GST (think sales tax) of 10 percent (so 1/11th of the rrp). the excise is diferent for aviation fuel, and some other fuels like heating oil, kerosene, etc.
@zonavar68 thats exactly my point.

Here the idiots raised the fuel tax then realized they screwed up so now If you save your receipts they'll refund you at the end of the year without interest so far

I don't know what the employees thinks from the Federal reserve about printing more money that is exactly which weakens the Currency
All taxes are socialist. And if you're against socialism, make sure to never call the fire brigade, use pubic roads or anything offered by the government.
@carpediem oh, you're now deleting comments pointing out your bigotry and lack of understanding of the human mind?

@NerdyPotato WTF are you babbling about? You already got the prize for dumbest comment. What else do you want kid? The original poster deleted the comment. I didn鈥檛 even see it. Was it yours? LOL
@carpediem oh sorry, I got you confused with @checkoutanytime. But you meant hits comment was the dumbest one, right? I asked where he thought the towns got their money from and thanked him for making it clear he was a bigot. He deleted that.

Pretty much every person in every country gets taxed by their government unless they live in Monaco or Dubai or a few other oil rich countries.

@checkoutanytime what鈥檚 the core rule?
Liberty for all, which clearly states no dual taxes, or oppression by tyranny is our #1 rule, and how n why our country came to be. What are you European or a canuck or something?

@checkoutanytime Where is that written? Here in Oz there's a very clear distinction between what the federal government can tax/levy and what state govt's can tax/levy.
