I just (tried) to pay the tax on a vehicle here in MO.
This is wrong, and evil on so many levels…….
First of all if you pay taxes yearly on something that you “own”, then by any honest analysis you don’t really own that item. You just rent it from the state. This is the American version of the first plank of the communist manifesto in case you don’t recognize it.
You know you are dealing with a criminal organization when you are forced to pay a $7 “handling charge” for a $51 tax bill. That is 13%, and from the looks of it, it is going to a private sub-contracted company. (probably run by a friend or family member of one of the psychopaths in Jeff City that hoisted this tax upon us) No one else in the semi-free market does anything approaching this level of screwing over the customer with excessive charges. (because they don’t have a government provided monopoly like the DMV) But government has a monopoly on the use of force, and knows that all laws ( and regulations) always end in a silent, “or we will kill you if you don’t comply”. If they were not a group of violent thugs that always threaten, and use violence (the very definition of terrorism) do they seriously think anyone would put up with their $7 extortion fee, in the free market?
The entire DMV in MO originated as a means of political cronyism where friends of politicans would be granted the monopolistic ownership of a state motor vehicle location. (You can read about that history in this book.)They are as dirty as mud, illegitimate, incompetent, and corrupt as hell IMHO.
MO DMV fulfills a government function, but at the same time they do not want to be bound by government responsibilities such as not trampling the first amendment. Fact of the matter is quite the opposite, they post signs on the wall that they can eject anyone for any reason, including you exercising your free speech. I know about this because I was ejected by the the incompetent boobs at the Marshfield DMV. I was ejected, and threatened with police involvement because I was exercising my first amendment rights by verbally objecting to them stealing over $250 for a bogus “late fee” on a small utility trailer worth about$300. They took that money, and then kicked me out before they would sell me plates. It took 2 months, and hours of my time but I did get my plates, and a full refund on the theft.
One would think that the parasitic criminal class would be happy with stealing over 50% of what each, and every one of us make. (They are in the process of killing the golden goose by greed IMHO) The founders went to war with their government, and were willing to kill them for tax’s of less than 5%.
Jefferson predicted that the blood of patriots, and tyrants would flow every 20 years to keep the tyrants in check. What happened? We are literal slaves to a criminal government, that “allow” us to keep less than half of what we make, and yearly strive to increase that percentage. Yet we do little other than complain…. “I am fed up, mad as hell and am not going to take it any more.” How about you?
FWIW the rape was not done at this point. Not only do they steal most of what we make, that is not good enough for the psychopaths. They then proceeded to steal more time from you (in addition to the time needed to pay their taxes) they want you to have property tax receipts, current insurance card, and safety inspection. This could easily take half of my day to locate all of this. We are treated by the DMV like a bunch of serfs that they own, and can make us jump through an infinite number of hoops, in order to exercise a God given right! (right to travel)…. It looks like I am going to be further stolen from in having to drive to 2 different counties, and spend another good part of a day to pay this extortion to the DMV. It seems as if they are not happy to only extort money from you, they have to make you grovel, and jump through hoops like we were a pack of trained monkeys that exist only as walking wallets for their financial wants. This from “our government employees”.
I for one find the current state of affairs disgusting and intolerable.
