“Would it not be better to simplify the system of taxation rather than to spread it over such a variety of subjects and pass through so many new hands.” – Thomas Jefferson
Daniel 11:19-21 – Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found. Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle. And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
