Isn’t this just like the left to get in the call for lower taxes – or, in this case, zero taxes – to make a politically driven and partisan point.
That’s a snarky summation of what the left’s latest attack point on Donald Trump is – the one they hope will crumble his presidency and showcase Hillary Clinton, loser of the White House race as she is, as the rightful president.
What’s going on? Take a look at the lunacy of Mark Weston, a writer for Time.
As Zero Hedge noted: “Under the twisted premise of losing the popular vote and ‘no taxation without representation,’ Time’s Mark Weston proclaims that the approximately 65 million Democrats who voted for Hillary Clinton should pledge ‘we won’t pay taxes to the federal government … until democracy is restored.”
What a loon. Where was Weston all these years Obama was taxing us to the max, via direct hikes and regulatory increases – especially the one called Obamacare? No doubt, patting Obama on the back for responsible taxation of the American public.
But now, Weston wants Democrats to just quit the system because they didn’t get their way – because their candidate lost.
“A national movement not to pay federal taxes in the future would put Republicans on notice: they do not have the right to impose a hard-right, second-place presidency on a moderate nation every dozen or so years,” Zero Hedge said.
What a strange way of thinking marks the Democratic mind.
“If the Republicans won’t help amend the Constitution so that America can resume being a democracy, then Democrats, lacking the representation that supporters of a future popular vote-winner ought to have in the executive branch should not submit to paying taxes to the federal government.”
Weston, sadly, grossly misunderstands the entire system of America’s government.
