There's a saying: "Money talks and bullshit walks."
It means that someone with money is more likely to be serious about entering into a transaction than someone without money. While everyone, "rich" as well as not "rich", wants the best deal they can get the real conflict comes from wanting white glove service and a bargain basement price.
The reality is that very often the products or services you want just don't come cheap. You have to pay good to get good.
And it is for that very reason that money – specifically, keeping the money your own hard work has brought you - is THE key to your personal freedom and liberty!
Tyranny by taxation – taking away your hard earned money – is the worst form of oppression!
Not being able to buy the products or services you need (or simply want, no crime in that!), not because you don't make enough to buy it, but because the government confiscates it by taxes is nothing less than "stealth tyranny". When you work hard, take the risk of the hard work (because hard work per se is never a guarantee of success) and reap the rewards of that hard work only to have a large chunk taxed away where is your freedom?
There is no valid argument for taking the fruits of a persons' labors just because those labors did in fact bear fruit.
The end result of no being able to purchase the products and services you desire is you end up relying on the sheer generosity of whatever the government (in it's very finite wisdom) "gives" you or "allows" you to have. And MasterPo can guarantee it will not be anywhere near what you would have obtained for yourself had you been able to purchase it on your own.
That is not contributing to you freedom or liberty!
Think this over the next time you hear a politician say it's "just" a little tax on this or that.
Little things add up fast. Ask a blizzard.
