Tax the socialists only.

take a choice....higher direct taxation and lower indirect,or lower direct and higher indirect(user)taxation.personally i prefer morally the latter but it would be much harder to create a budget.

Personally I would say your latter option is only prerable if the expenditure on which the indirect tax is levied is genuinely optional.  Unfortunately a lot of indirect tax is paid on essential expenditure, which taxes the less well off indiscriminately, and if the EU has its way in the future that position will be even worse

I wouldn't mind paying income tax if we could get interest free loans from the Govt, from the money we pay as tax. I think the role of the banks in this triangle has been to the gross detriment of Westen society, remember the psbr and the amount the Govt has to borrow from the same banks to keep the policy train moving.

Govts tend to spend money faster than they get it, so there's nothing left to lend.  The money banks make from joe public and small businesses in particular is scandalous imo

Agreed and you have to wonder why Govt don't introduce legislation to curb the obscene profits banks are making. People forget that the money made in a country ALL OF ITis made from the ingenuity, skills and labour of people and banks are just creaming it off continually. This moneyis not theirs, they had nothing to do with making it (apart from charging interest at various stages).

 

 

As far as I can see we are paying income tax to fund interest and capital sum payments to banks. The banks need to be bought into line. Where is the 'free market' where banking is concerned, there isn't one. The are working as a cabaland just taking our money.

It's taken years for people to cotton on that the clearing system is just a money making scam for the banks.  "Insurance protection" for loans and penalty fees are another scam.  They rely on ignorance and apathy to get away with it, lucky for them there's plenty of that

"money making scam".........  the trouble is they have to make money SOMEHOW otherwise why bother?

 

If you have free banking then how are they going to make a $

 

Same as currency exchanges - they make their profit on the buy/sell spread - banks do the same in clearing but  use time as the spread...............
