The Tax Poem

At first I thought this was funny...

Then I realized the awful truth of it.
Be sure to read all the way to the end!
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 work,
Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
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
Tax his tears.
Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.
Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won't be done
Till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers;
Then 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, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt, had a large middle-class, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

So what happened?

Can you spell 'politicians?'

And I still have to 'press 1' for English!?!?!?!?
I hope this goes around America at least 100 times!!!

YOU can help it get there!!
GO AHEAD - be an American!!

Note: I got from someone. I think it is inappropriate to send this. What's your recommendation?

I SAY SEND IT AROUND! ...Someone once said "Freedom will be lost when good men and women do nothing!" We are on the verge of some scarey happenings in the USA, we can not stand by and be afraid to say nothing. Stand up for what we beleive to be true and right.
