Ron Paul’s 0% Tax Proposal Would Create Most Jobs “In History of the World”

As The Wall Street Journal’s Stephen Moore explained on FOX Business to Judge Andrew Napolitano after Monday night’s debate:

Judge Napolitano: But the biggest sound bite of last night comes from another cowboy from Texas. Congressman Ron Paul, whos tax ideas outgunned his opponents.

Ron Paul: We should have the lowest tax that we’ve ever had, and up till 1913 it was 0%. What’s so bad about that?

Debate moderator: So you’re answer is 0?

RP: Zero

Judge Napolitano: Zero! Joining me now to discuss abolishing the income tax is a man who’s no stranger to studying and analyzing taxes. He’s Stephen Moore, head of the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal.

Judge Napolitano: Can we take Congressman Paul seriously at his word? That were he to be nominated and elected President, he would move to reduce the income tax rates to zero, or as he says, gradually abolish the income tax, shrink the government down to its Constitutional size, and force it to go to other resources for cash.

Stephen Moore: This is a point Ron Paul made very effectively last night, which was for the first roughly 130 or 140 years of our nation we didn’t have an income tax, and yet we did have a prosperous country, we got richer every year, and so there’s no reason we can’t imagine what America would be like without an income tax.

Stephen Moore: As an economist, can you imagine America’s competitive position in the world if Ron Paul were able to get our income tax rate down to zero, when other countries have 30, 40, 50% rates… you would see the most insourcing of jobs into America in the history of the world.

“Can this statement possibly be true? In order to answer this question, Americans must first understand what is the source of the money that funds the government and where it goes. Contrary to the sound bites issued by the two mainstream political parties, the reality of how the system actually works will not only open your eyes, but hopefully stimulate the American people to demand that the thievery underway come to an end.

Where do your “income” tax dollars go?

The best place to look for an answer to this question would be a government report, so let’s take just one at random:

President’s Private Sector Survey On Cost Control
A Report to The President (Reagan)
January 15, 1984. Available from the Congressional Research Service.

[…]

Resistance to additional income taxes would be even more widespread if people were aware that:

With two-thirds of everyone’s personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Government contributions to transfer payments.

In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services which taxpayers expect from their government.” [emphasis added]

So what we have is a central bank issuing worthless paper “money” that controls our economy, our lives and our future. This private banking cartel was unconstitutionally granted this power by a devious, scheming group of senators back in 1913. In essence what they did was place the American people into indentured servitude by forcing The People to pay usury on worthless fiat currency (paper money created out of nothing), not to fund the government, but to enrich the bankers and fund wars in which America should never be involved. This system exists not to fund the government, but to allow the U.S. Congress carte blanche power to continue funding unconstitutional agencies and programs by providing them with a bottomless source of worthless ink.

[…]

Sometimes it’s difficult to be the messenger of news that people would rather not hear.

However, Americans can no longer remain in their comfort zones because the message isn’t what they want to hear. If your house is on fire, you don’t sit and continue to watch the television set, you call the fire department. America: Our house is on fire and it is the obligation of every American to safeguard the liberties and freedoms given to us by those who paid the ultimate price. Please join the growing numbers of millions who are ready to take back our country and stop the assault on our rights.”
