California to Tax Anything & Everything They Can Think Of

• Martin Armstrong-Armstrong Economics

This is how governments commit suicide. Instead of dealing with the problem and looking at this from the long-term view, all they care about is what is in front of their nose. The attitude is to just raise some tax to meet the next expenditure. They do not look at this and where it ends up. Historically, if Rome had taxed people at 50%, it would have never lasted 1,000 years. There is no hope in sight. The people are complacent and until they realize that all of these taxes are reducing their standard of living, then and only then will change unfold in the form of massive civil unrest, overthrowing governments, and the end of career politicians. Tax rebellions have been the source of revolution since the 14th century. Governments never learn. They always have to oppress people to expand their own greed and power.
