The Power to Tax is the Power to Destroy

Thomas Jefferson is telling American’s about the “first and most important . . . virtues” is the economy. Then he gives the antithesis right after, telling us that “public debt” is the “greatest dangers to be feared.”

Jefferson then warns Americans at the time and for the future freedom of our country and countrymen, in order to “preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.” We can see that perpetual means ceaseless, continuous, never-ending, unending, recurring and without end.


“If we would run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink in our necessities and comforts, in our labors and in our amusements,” continues Jefferson.

As we reflect and study, we can see all the taxes on the surface, but what about the taxes we that are hidden? We are taxed at the city, county, state and federal levels. They are called by different names, but it is still a tax and a burden.

Let’s not forget inflation is an invisible tax as well.

“It is a way to take people’s wealth from them without having to openly raise taxes. Inflation is the most universal tax of them all.” (11)

The antitheist of Thomas Jefferson and the ideology the founding fathers were attempting to set up is found in what Karl Marx wrote in the Communist Manifesto document. He was hired to put his name on the plan to rebrand, remake and rebuild in an effort to throw people off the real authors and to reframe the philosophy in the minds of the collective.

“Marx was hired by a mysterious group who called themselves the League of Just Men to write the Communist Manifesto as demogogic boob-bait to appeal to the mob. In actual fact the Communist Manifesto was in circulation for many years before Marx’ name was widely enough recognized to establish his authorship for this revolutionary handbook. All Karl Marx really did was to update and codify the very same revolutionary plans and principles set down seventy years earlier by Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Order of Illuminati in Bavaria. And, it is widely acknowledged by serious scholars of this subject that the League of Just Men was simply an extension of the Illuminati which was forced to go deep underground after it was exposed by a raid in 1786 conducted by the Bavarian authorities.” (2)

We learn the Order of Illuminati was underground, off the books, and formed another organization called the League of Just. They hired Karl Marx to update and put his name on the document by rebranding the antitheist to the good the founding fathers were embracing, teaching and living in America. It was a plan, to undo all the principles, concepts and Laissez-faire of America and replace and return to the philosophy of the slave and dependent mind-set.

The Plan highlighted ten main veins to infiltrate, hijack and remold in the Illuminati’s image in order to take down America and enslave humanity. As we look at number one and two on the list, we can see “our rulers” are loading Americans up with “perpetual debt,” progressive income tax and taxes on private property. Has this been intentionally, ignorantly or coerced? Of course, all of the above is applicable.

American’s have devolved gradually over time, accepting the infiltrated ideology of the Communist Manifesto to weaken us from the inside, without even realizing, knowing or resisting it. We have slowly over time become coerced.

The communist ideology supplanted our founding ideas, it was rebranded and sold as being American, when in reality it is a foreign enemy’s creed we have adopted as our own and it will be our own demise.

It has been slowly driven into our minds, hearts and absorbed gradually and similarly to being intravenously, in small doses of poison into our body politic by way of the most direct, insidious and trusted delivery system, called schools.

The School System has devolved into a structure to teach reliance on government and tyrants

No one would suspect it on the surface and most people won’t look past the outer shell as we deal with cognitive dissonance and rely on the belief the system is good and it couldn’t happen in America without anyone noticing it. But people have and are noticing it and are warning the general population of the problem, but they are ignored and branded insignificant, conspiracy theorists or worse terrorists. A a psychological weapon in their Pys-ops warfare to silence skeptical, honest and thorough investigation and questioning into gathering facts and to stop anyone from question the governments official narratives (lies).

We have put too much trust in the system that it is doing its job and it is a good system. We have too much faith in the arm of flesh without being vigilant.

The communist doctrine has been accepted and normalized without a fight in the form of a bait and switch. Americans have been conquered from within, like a Trojan Horse, without being aware it was even happening.

Nikita Khrushchev, a previous Communist leader made this comment:

“You Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright. But we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you; we’ll so weaken your economy until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands.” (10)

The takeover of America is being completed, one step at a time and is close at hand, if not at its final stages. Americans have been coerced, brainwashed by having their minds and hearts abducted by the enemy.

In reality, they have made the enemy ideology sound like American doctrine through psychology and coercion. The coalition of un-American players, are serving their own interests. They are crafty, dishonest, and manipulative. They have made it appear American on the outside as it has been wrapped with both the figuratively and literal flag of patriotism and apple pie.

The core of America, thanks to the subversion of the education system has been changed from goodness to dreadfulness as a small band of men and oligarchs are emerging to set themselves up to be the new ruling class. They grabbed, stole and conspired to commandeer and confiscate ten main (and additional levers) mechanisms and levers to destroy, flip and turn America up-side down and inside-out to evolve and supplant into a new feudal system as they steered generation of students away from the Declaration of Independence, of “all men are created equal,” to all men are once again slaves and the once great system that was valued on multiple facets.

“. . . the excellent value system . . . of respect for the individual, freedom of speech, the rule of law, meritocracy, the work ethic, equality of opportunity, taking personal responsibility, the importance of education.” (3)

As we have swallowed and digested and traded the good for the bad, we have brought this enemy philosophy into our families and nation as it rots, decays and destroys Americans from within. It is causing hate, division and misery to all of humanity in all areas of our lives physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Our kids are learning to act obedient, reliant and even robotic to the schooling system as it has taught dependence on their government masters. Our government wasn’t taken over by a violent revolution, but by the soft and slow decay of the Fabian Socialist strategy of gradualism. America is the prey, victim and host country. Americans didn’t even fight it then, and won’t fight it now, due to not being aware and conscious of the words, actions and behavior incrementally taking place. We have all consumed the poisonous Kool-Aid potion and turned into the enemy we swore to defend and protect against. It sounds like a Hollywood and Sci-Fi script, but it’s real and its the truth.

We have become our own worst nightmare, we have been formed, molded and turned into the enemy. We are the enemy as individuals, changed and morphed as we interact with other government dependent individuals in families, work, church, communities and in the country.

Have we been turned into communists? How do we think these interactions are going in the community and body politic?

From our own childhood, we have absorbed and digested the secular humanistic and atheism ideology, which is the result of being fed a false conclusion that is leading us as individuals and a nation to climb the wrong ladder/wall and take the wrong path.

As we have reached adulthood and have gone out into the world. Because we have been trained in the art of depending on government for everything, our solutions are government driven and oriented.

As adults, we hold positions in the world through different organizations and work areas, including public and civil servants along with elected officials. Our Communist filled minds are prone to sabotage and to have a traitorous attitude with the conclusion of relying on government for support and answers.

The Founding Fathers ideology has been taught, trained and slowly squeezed out of our minds and hearts and replaced with our own seeds of destruction.

The same attitude of relying on government and government is the answer, is inserted in the seats and halls of government, in the courts and enforcing the laws with the insidious, but unknowing takeover. Where they are no longer the enforcers of liberty, but seduced, encroachers and terminators of their own freedom and liberty of their countrymen along with their own future posterity. Their legacy to their children and grandchildren will be mental chains and physical bondage for the sake of money, greed and to live comfortably off the spoils and taxed peasantry.

We need to understand and view the correlation of our propaganda filled leaders and their policies of larger government intrusion and rising taxes and inflation as they are killing the goose that laid the golden egg, selling their birthright for a mess of pottage and destroying our country with the death by a thousand cuts.

A coalition of groups and government bureaucrats, political class, communist, oligarchs and the tyrannical feudal ruling class; along with an “. . .  overreaching federal government, out-of-control security state, a weaponized media, and corporate and social media titans,”(4) have “seduced the more part of” Americans “until they had come down to believe in their works and partake of their spoils.” (5)


Whereas the Founding Fathers wanted a system that the power was vested in the people. This is what the original American ideology was all about. It was the People’s Law. The communist ideology was in reverse as the power was found in the ruling class by way of Ruler’s Law, which is arbitrary and tyrannical in nature.

We find in 1819, The Supreme Court in the case of McCulloch v. Maryland, Chief Justice John Marshall ruled in favor of expanding the Federal power. In today’s, political environment, John Marshall would be considered a progressive and liberal. A statist as he increased the collective, federal power and more government over the States and individual.

Regardless of whether taxes come from the states or the federal government, the principle remains the same.

“The power to tax is the power to destroy.” (7)

In the Bible, we learn when Israel decided to change their form of government from the rule of judges to a king, due to the request of the people. They were choosing a less vigilant and irresponsible path to give up freedom. The Prophet Samuel attempted to warn the people what they were giving-up and getting themselves into by having a king and sliding towards a centralized government. The king, the government will start to tax the people in multiple ways and overtime time these taxes will increase to pay for the comforts of our rulers and administrators.

11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.

12 And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.

13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.

14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.

15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.

16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.

17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day.

19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;


There are Americans who have been red-pilled and are awake to the Matrix and to the agenda. Some of us are recovering Communists.

Others are part of humanity the potion or hypnosis never worked and they are trying to wake their neighbors up and warn them of the dangerous situation Americans and the world is facing as they sleepwalk through life.

“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters.” (9)

I would add everyone has been indoctrinated, vaccinated and propagandized in or schooling system. That would include teachers, policemen, politicians, any one tied to government is susceptible to this disease; in general all Americans are affected with the communist doctrine.

It is harder for people working for and in government positions to see through the dogma. Because they are dependence on their sugar daddy and they don’t want to bite the hand that feeds them or upset the apple cart.

Our families, wives, husband’s, children, parents, siblings, and relatives even ourselves have been affected, and blue-pilled into the Marxist brainwashing. It has been getting exponentially worse through the years.

“The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy.” (9)

The system has seduced, coerced, molded and created us to be the enemy to ourselves and our founding heritage. Until they take the bitter red pill, our countrymen will treat their captors with respect and protect them. They will treat the red-pilled and their liberators as the enemy and will fight to protect the corrupt system for various reasons.

“You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.” (9)

In an article titled, Poorest Cities in Utah. Cedar City, in Iron County, Utah is ranked #3.

We have 20% of people living below the poverty line in Iron County.

As we have already stated, the power to tax, is the power to destroy. In a previous article, The Tax Man Cometh to Iron County on Tuesday, August 15th, 2023.

As we were researching salaries an interesting figure jumped out to us in regard to where Iron County fits in with the 1,955 other counties in the United States. According to the research we found, Iron County ranked 92nd highest paid county employees in 2021. There were over 40 county employees reported to have made over $100,000 a year. That alone is $4 million in annual salaries per year for the 40 county employees.

We discovered at least 40 county employees were making over $100,000.00 a year. We haven’t even dived into the Iron County School District or Cedar City Corporation yet. What do you think we will find? How many more government employees will be making over $100,000.00 a year?

Do you think there is a correlation between government salaries, poverty and Cedar City being the 3rd poorest city in the state? If I was a betting man, I would say, yes.

We will be researching those areas in the near future and report our findings in an upcoming article.

As our society and country has become corrupted by the enemy ideology, our government function, mission and purpose has changed from liberty to tyranny. The government has grown bigger and bigger shrinking our liberties, which will eventually will kill our freedoms as Thomas Jefferson commented. We then have the warning of Samuel the prophet, that he gave about government taking more and more property and putting people in bondage in direct proportion as one rises, one falls.

As government employees salaries are collected through taxes, peoples incomes go down. The consumption goes up, while productivity goes down. The government employees grow richer, the citizens grow poorer. The government grows more powerful, and We the People grow weaker in freedoms, liberty, rights and self-governance.

Can we see the correlation and direct proportion to how one rises, one falls?

I ask people in Iron County, Utah and in the United States, how much more proof do you need of the dangers we are facing and the power to tax is the power to destroy. We are in bondage and our local government employees are adding to our bondage just as much as the state and the national bureaucratic administrative state.

They are interconnected with one another.

Are government employees wealthy? Are we living in an unjust society? Are we living in a disgrace period of time?

Americans should be mad as hell.

  1. A logical and moral government would be funded only by voluntary donations and zero debt. Such a government IS possible to invent. It would be neither government by one ruler nor government by the people, but government by what is right. Government by right. God is trying to guide the invention of such a government, but most people are addicted to previous conceptions, which blocks hearing God’s current guidance.
