Guest Commentary – Cloak and Dagger Taxes Again

Tonight we welcome back a regular contributor and someone who I am hoping to add to SUFA as a regular writer once I get my world settled down and can really get focused again. Jon Smith brings us an issue that at first glance might have been too local to be appreciated by everyone. However, after reading through it, and doing a bit of my own research, it is clear that this is a good topic for discussion. While the course of action in the article is clearly a Virginia state issue, the concept of what is being done is something that is being mirrored in many ways on many products in many states. We have all had our discussions here at SUFA around government and the crooked ways that they do thing. Whether you like or don’t like the concept of taxes, I would like to think that we can all agree that transparency is something we are owed as the citizens.

March Towards Socialism Part 3

socialism1So we have finished with the War between the states. A quick summary statement there was that this was one of the big moments in our march towards socialism, as it showed the power of the federal goverment to control the states, to the point of levying tariffs and not allowing states to secede from the union when they felt that tyranny was coming. However there is still much to cover before we get to the current administration and the moves happening today. Now, admittedly, I am able to cover the Civil War era fairly well. As I said, I grew up right next to Gettysburg, and a photographic memory coupled with annual field trips and reading can sink in quite well.
On to Progressives, Wilson, and the Roosevelts
