    Tax truth

    Tax his land,
    Tax his bed,
    Tax the table
    At which he's fed.

    Tax his tractor,
    Tax his mule,
    Teach him taxes
    Are the rule.

    Tax his cow,
    Tax his goat,
    Tax his pants,
    Tax his coat.

    Tax his ties,
    Tax his shirt,
    Tax his work,
    Tax his dirt.

    Tax his tobacco,
    Tax his drink,
    Tax him if he
    Tries to think.

    Tax his cigars,
    Tax his beers,
    If he cries, then
    Tax his tears.

    Tax his car,
    Tax his gas,
    Find other ways
    To tax his mass

    Tax all he has
    Then let him know
    That you won't be done
    Till he has no dough.

    When he screams and hollers,
    Tax him some more,
    Tax him till
    He's good and sore.

    Then tax his coffin ,
    Tax his grave,
    Tax the sod in
    Which he's laid.
    Put these words
    Upon his tomb,
    ' Taxes drove me to my doom...'

    When he's gone,
    Do not relax,
    Its time to apply
    The inheritance tax.

    Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago,

    And our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
    We had absolutely no national debt,
    Had the largest middle class in the world ,
    And Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

    What the heck happened?

    And I still have to 'press 1'
    For English.

    ...and just as sad, people are now convinced it is normal and inevetable, just look at the saying adressing it 'the only things for sure in life are death and taxes', people actualy believe there is NO way to exist without taxtion. Not just that our government requires it but that it could NOT be avoided or changed.
