Social media platforms were created by illegitimate government agencies on the taxpayer's dimes in order to further social engineer said taxpayers.

Same as "free" "vaccines" as paid for by the taxpayers that are being slow kill depopulated by the very DEATHVAX that they have been socially engineered to uptake.

I've been saying for years - if everyone just stopped paying their taxes, we'd quickly find our leaders more than willing to become actual representatives for us. Taxation without representation is illegal. Why on earth are we continuing to prop up these criminals? (Well, fear, of course.)

Yup, the impression intended. We need bigger numbers for sure.

Property tax is also abusive. You build a house on your land, you pay sales tX on everything you buy to build it. The the guvmnt then wants you to pay them for the "privilege" of building said home for the rest of your life. You don't own it, the state owns it. And you.

So if you are not in “public office” then you are not subject to the self employment tax!

With respect to the taxation subject, this Gary North article informs my strategy:

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2012/03/gary-north/how-to-bring-down-the-system/

Self Employment Taxes Research

[Items in brackets are my commentary.]

Title 26 Subtitle A Chapter 2 - Tax on Self-Employment Income

Code Section 1401 - Rate of tax

(a) Old-age, survivors, and disability insurance

In addition to other taxes, there shall be imposed for each taxable year, on the self-employment income of every individual, a tax equal to 12.4 percent of the amount of the self-employment income for such taxable year.

Code Section 1402 - Definitions

(b) The term “self-employment income” means the net earnings from self-employment derived by an individual during any taxable year ...

(a) The term “net earnings from self-employment” means the gross income derived by an individual from any trade or business carried on by such individual ...

(c) The term “trade or business”, when used with reference to self-employment income or net earnings from self-employment, shall have the same meaning as when used in section 162 ...

[While the term "trade or business" is used in section 162, it is not explicitly defined there; we have to look elsewhere for this definition.]

Title 26 Subtitle F Chapter 79 - Definitions

Code Section 7701 - Definitions

(a) When used in this title, where not otherwise distinctly expressed or manifestly incompatible with the intent thereof—

(26) The term "trade or business" includes the performance of the functions of a public office.

[And that's it, that's all it says. That is the only definition of "trade or business." So if you are not performing the functions of a public office, isn't your self-employment income from any trade or business zero???]

If we focus on the word "includes" in the definition of "trade or business", you can find in several Supreme Court cases (examples below) how this word should be interpreted:

"[T]he verb 'includes' imports a general class, some of whose particular instances are those specified in the definition."

Helvering v Morgan's Inc, 293 US 121 126 fn. 1 (1934)

"[I]ncluding ... connotes simply an illustrative application of the general principle."

Federal Land Bank of St. Paul v Bismark Lumber Co. 314 US 95, 62 S.Ct. 1 U.S. (1941)

Plus, from the Treasury Department:

"The terms 'includes and including' do not exclude things not enumerated which are in the same general class." [If you reverse the double-negative: the term 'includes' only includes things not specifically listed which are in the same general class.]

[So, unless your "trade or business" is in the same general class as performing the functions of a public office, then again, isn't your gross income from any "trade or business" zero???]

Do you receive a W-2? Do you just assume the amount of "wages" in box 1 is correct? Well, let's have a look at the definition of "wages" per Title 26:

Title 26 Subtitle C - Employment Taxes

Chapter 24 - Collection of Income Tax at Source on Wages

Code Section 3401 - Definitions

(a) Wages

For the purposes of this chapter, the term "wages" means all remuneration ... for services performed by an employee for his employer ...

[Are you an "employee?" If you are not an "employee" does "wages" apply to you?]

(c) Employee

For purposes of this chapter, the term "employee" includes [there's that word again, see above] an officer, employee, or elected official of the United States, a State, or any political subdivision thereof, or the District of Columbia, or any agency or instrumentality of any or more of the foregoing. The term "employee" also includes an officer of a corporation.

[Again, are you an "employee?" Not an officer, employee or elected official of the United States (hint, look up this definition too), a State (ditto), or DC? Not an officer of a corporation? Not in the "same general class?"]

What about FICA? Let's see what we can find there ...

Title 26 Subtitle C - Employment Taxes

Chapter 21 - Federal Insurance Contributions Act

Subchapter A - Tax on Employees

Code Section 3101 - Rate of tax

(a) Old-age, survivors, and disability insurance

In addition to other taxes, there is hereby imposed on the income of every individual a tax equal to 6.2 percent of the wages (as defined in section 3121(a)) received by the individual with respect to employment (as defined in section 3121(b)).

Subchapter C - General Provisions

Code Section 3121 - Definitions [always see exactly how the thieves define their terms]

(a) Wages

For purposes of this chapter, the term "wages" means all remuneration for employment ...

(b) Employment

For purposes of this chapter, the term "employment" means any service, of whatever nature, performed

(A) by an employee for the person employing him, irrespective of the citizenship or residence of either, (i) within the United States, or (ii) on or in connection with an American vessel or American aircraft ...

[So the "employee" definition in my other comment doesn't apply here b/c that definition is specific to Chapter 24. However, did you perform service within the United States? See below.]

or (B) outside the United States by a citizen or resident of the United States as an employee for an American employer ...

[Or did you perform service outside the United States? And in that case, are you a citizen or resident of the United States? Were you also an employee for an American employer? See below.]

(e) State, United States, and citizen

For purposes of this chapter-

(1) State

The term "State" includes the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa.

(2) United States

The term "United States" when used in a geographical sense includes the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa.

An individual who is a citizen of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (but not otherwise a citizen of the United States) shall be considered, for purposes of this section, as a citizen of the United States.

(h) American employer

For purposes of this chapter, the term "American employer" means an employer which is-

(1) the United States or any instrumentality thereof,

(2) an individual who is a resident of the United States,

(3) a partnership, if two-thirds or more of the partners are residents of the United States,

(4) a trust, if all of the trustees are residents of the United States, or

(5) a corporation organized under the laws of the United States or of any State.

Are you starting to get it yet? They are counting on the fact you won't read and FOLLOW THEIR INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. Which is exactly how you defeat them.

Wonderfully stated! I have learned about all these definitions and the fact that the law dictionary used for interpretation of the terms is the same as it's been since the beginning of our Republic. Black's Law Dictionary gives all the definitions if one wants a deep drink. If not just follow and understand people like yourself and apply the principles. No need to reinvent the wheel. Cheers!

While any tax is crazy, if that number was about 10% it would be much more reasonable. 25%+ yikes.

Everyone in the US has lived under taxation and it is all they know. Since this is all they know they will not rebel.
