Things have stopped going Democrats’ way. In between crying fits over the death of Castro and mouthfuls of crow, lefty loonies have been plotting ways to rig the system in their favor. Because democracy. Progressives are so butthurt over the victory of Trump, they’re going full retard. Case in point? A writer over at TIME Magazine has proposed that Democrats stop paying taxes. Cue laughter…
The approximately 65 million Democrats who voted for Hillary Clinton should pledge that in the future if a Republican wins the presidency with fewer votes than a Democrat for the third time in our era, we won’t pay taxes to the federal government. No taxation without representation!
A national movement not to pay federal taxes in the future would put Republicans on notice: they do not have the right to impose a hard-right, second-place presidency on a moderate nation every dozen or so years. If the Republicans won’t help amend the Constitution so that America can resume being a democracy, then Democrats, lacking the representation that supporters of a future popular vote-winner ought to have in the executive branch, should not submit to paying taxes to the federal government.
Um…how are you guys going to stop paying taxes? It’s not like you’re paying them to begin with. That would require you guys having jobs and stuff. No, playing hacky sack to combat global warming doesn’t count, you fithy hippies.
I’ll humor you leftists. You progressive types want to stop paying the taxes you’re already not paying? That’s great! The lack of your financial support (what little there was) would give Republicans all the reason they need to cut your precious social programs. Say bye bye to the funding of Planned Parenthood and transgender sensitivity training. You’re only hurting yourselves, dummies.
This stupid idea is another attempt by leftists to “restore democracy.” That’s going to be hard. Seeing as America was never a democracy to begin with. We’re a constitutional representative republic. Repeat as necessary. For good reason too. The Founders wanted to keep people with stupid ideas, like you, from calling the shots for everyone else. Such as writing new laws simply because you can’t take a presidential loss. Thanks for proving the point. Now go take a bath. Use shampoo. Repeat as necessary.
Incidentally, even if you were paying taxes into the system, with Republican presidents you typically have taxes cut. So if you want to get out of paying taxes, might I suggest you switch parties. I recommend it right after you switch your soiled diapers for a clean pair. Maybe call your mom. She might have some Pampers on standby.
