Today I am wondering if I am even considered as a person in my own Parish of Washington Parish. I have to say this due to what is being done in this parish and probably all over the nation from the local level on up. I say this simply due to the fact that a Tax increase is going to be considered this Saturday, April 21, 2012 in Washington, Parish that should have not even been considered. I make that statement mainly because this tax increase is for the “operational Costs” of a hospital in my district. I hope you caught that, “operational costs”. Those are costs normally associated with the “PROFIT” of a business.
Now comes the fun part of this brief article, why should the Taxpayer of any parish, County, or State for that matter have to pay Taxes for the “operational costs” of any business? Just what does this mean? It means simply stated that the “operational costs’, those costs that are normally paid from the profits of the business will now be paid by the Tax payer, if this passes. I know, what is wrong with this if one uses the said business? Well, let me explain this a bit more. Let us say just for the purpose of debate that the big supermarket on the corner sees this business get taxes for the “operational costs” and seeing this this grocery then sees that it can also make the same request at the next meeting and hope for the people to unwittingly vote for them to take tax dollars and use that to “protect’ their profit. Is this even close to right?
Why should tax money from the pockets of people be used to hold the profits of any company up? No one should be forced to pay taxes so a business that is poorly run can keep nearly all their profits and run their “operational costs” on the backs of the people that pay to use that business! This will open the door to an even larger group that will then feel that if their business is beginning to fail all they have to do is get a tax increase from the people so that the business can keep all their profits to keep the business running even if it is doomed to failure due to bad business practices! This has become what I call the “Obama Syndrome” where if you feel you are failing, just get the people to pay more taxes and support your failed business, they are not that bright and will not vote in numbers large enough to stop from allowing your business to do this!
Just another small removal of freedom by the “Obama Syndrome”, one little step at a time until no one can afford any sort of property and the Government takes care of you and all you do! That is NOT freedom; that is SLAVERY!!!
