Boston Tea Party Anyone?


So I like paying taxes as much as the next person (reads HATE paying taxes), but I think we should at least think about keeping taxes local. You know to pay for things like roads, and social security, military. You know things important to the Country we live in. Unfortunately there are some people (cough, cough Koffi Annan) that think besides paying taxes on a local and national we should think about paying GLOBAL TAXES. WEEEEEE that sounds like fun to me. Then why don't we go ahead and start paying Galaxy taxes, then Universe taxes because we would probably get the same out of it.

The point of global taxes is to help developing (read third world) countries meat certain goals laid out in the Millennium Declaration which stated 5 major goals to be accomplished by 2015, goals such as fighting AIDS and reducing poverty. They want to redistribute some of the wealth to the poorer countries. This sort of sounds similar to the way communism wants everyone to be equal.

As noble as it might sound and as harsh as I may sound I believe that we should not have to pay any global taxes. There are many reasons for this. 1. We have enough problems with AIDS, poverty, sick, unemployed etc. Why do we have to worry about other countries more than out own. 2. What happens when we are in need of help such as during Katrina, New Orleans and Florida's hurricanes, fires in the west, mudslides and earthquakes out west, and floods and high temperatures here in the Midwest. I did not see a whole bunch of aid rushing in. No because we are the U.S. we do not need any assistance, but boy if we don't give or help we sure hear about it. 3. How much money to we already give to developing Nations? In 2005 they gave 27 Billion dollars in foreign Aid. Now compared to the GNI it is only .22%, but we contribute more than Japan and the UK combined (2 and 3). Yes some countries such as the Norway and Sweden give almost 1% of their GNI, but they also collect a lot more taxes from their population and they have a smaller population, small military, etc. You cannot compare the smaller countries with different spots in the Global economy to US. 4. What power does the UN really have to enforce any type of Global Taxation? They have not military force and no judicial system. They are basically a punch of policy makers with no real power.

There were 5 key areas that taxes were going to be levied upon those being 1 email, 2 fossil fuels, 3. Currency transactions, 4 International Air transport, and 5. Aviation fuel tax. When it comes down to it seeing as we create the Internet and have most of the traffic in and out, we consume the most fuel, and most banks have their headquarters in the US the US itself would be paying the bulk of these taxes. How fair is that really? Why should someone, who is more successful, be ordered to give more of it away? The U.S. had to do it on their own, to develop and create our current economy. Why should we have to help every other country primarily by ourselves? Is it fair lets say to have someone who has worked for a company making more money than someone just starting out and having that person give some of his money to the person just starting out? Shouldn't it be earned through work? Plus with the propositions made how is someone going to figure out how to tax email. What about all the spam and spoofing of addresses and ip addresses. How would all of this be administered? Going back to the title didn't we start a war because of taxation without representation? Who is representing us in these conferences? There are currently 132 third world nations and about 227 total countries. If there was a meeting and all third world countries voted for the tax (which they would be exempt of course) they would have over a 50% vote. This is only figuring if they acted like a senate (which they don't), but this could just put pressure on the rest of the assembly. I believe we can give more money, but don't force us that is not the way.

What do you think?
