The Tax Slaves
Slave: “a person entirely under the domination of some influence…” 
In the middle ages the ordinary people were called serfs and literally taxed unto death. The rulers of the serfs were kings and queens and the nobility class who ruled over various fiefdoms.
Now fast forward to the present day where we have a political class ruling over us. They may not have the title king or queen or be of the nobility class, though some believe they are political nobles, but they impose taxes upon us and their titles are “right honorable” and “honorable. The only changes from the days of old are that our “rulers” no longer ride horses or live in castles or wear strange attire. Instead, they wear suits and dresses and some have chauffeur driven limousines and they rule from what have become, “Houses of ill Repute.” From these houses they levy crippling taxes upon the modern day tax slaves who gave them power.
This power is achieved not by the brute force of olden days, but by the political force of unbridled power. The political powers promise the tax slaves some of their own money back if they vote for them in an “election.” Then, after being elected, they proceed to punish the people by imposing upon them more taxes.
The ruling class, appetite for taxes is voracious. One tax imposed by them is the “Goods
and Services Tax” (GST) whose more realistic name should be the Gouging for Services
Tax (GST). This tax was imposed by one government and another government promised to get rid of it, if elected. They did get elected, but guess what, they kept the gouging tax. So much for political honesty! But hey, can the people expect any honesty from tax addicted politicians?
Another tax imposed by some of the political barons is the “Provincial Sales Tax” (PST).
A more apt name for this tax would be Punish the Slaves Tax (PST). And now, the political parasites have dreamed up another tax, called the “Harmonized Sales Tax” (HST), where just about everything purchased will be subject to this tax. The
real name of this tax is Hammer the Slaves Tax (HST) and the peoples’ resources are being sucked dry by these political parasites who literally feed off the peoples’ taxes.
Taxes have become the weapon by which the people are being hammered into submission. We live in an age of political bondage where the people are prisoners of an out of control tax system. This system is lorded over by political charlatans who have become tax tyrants, just like the rulers of olden days, and thus, the people are prisoners of a structure imposed by politicians that has turned them into tax slaves.
