SJTF Fact:

SJT and “The Unscientific and Ill-adjusted Methods of Taxation”

During the Civil War the Federal Government instituted a
progressive income tax to help offset the war debt.
Anyone with an income of $600-10,000 paid 3% and
those who earned over $10,000 paid 5%. SJT, and others
who favored limited government feared that taxation only
increased the strength and centralization of federal power,
and such a tax would never go away.

The following excerpt is long but well worth reading:

The present depression in all the business and industries of
the people… has its principal cause in excessive
governmental consumption. Under the illusions of a
specious prosperity, engendered by the false policies of the
Federal government, a waste of capital has been going on
ever since the peace of 1865, which could only end in
universal disaster. The Federal taxes of the last eleven years
reach the gigantic sum of $4,500,000,000. Local taxation
has amounted to two-thirds as much more. The vast
aggregate is not less than $7,500,000,000 … It was
aggravated by the most unscientific and ill-adjusted
methods of taxation, that increased the sacrifices of the
people far beyond the receipts of the treasury. It was
aggravated, moreover, by a financial policy which tended to
diminish the energy, skill, and economy of production and
the frugality of private consumption, and induced
miscalculation in business and an unremunerative use of
capital and labor. Even in prosperous times, the daily wants
of industrious communities press closely upon their daily
earnings. The margin of possible national savings is at least
a small percentage of national earnings. Yet now for these
eleven years governmental consumption has been a larger
portion of the national earnings than the whole people can
possibly save, even in prosperous times, for all new
investments. The consequences of these errors are now a
present public calamity. But they never were doubtful,
never invisible. They were necessary and inevitable, and
were foreseen and depicted when the waves of that
fictitious prosperity ran highest. In a speech made by me
on the 24th of September, 1869, it was said of these taxes,
“They bear heavily upon every man’s income, upon every
industry and every business in the country; and year by
year they are destined to press still more heavily, unless
we arrest the system that gives rise to them.

 

The Inspiration of the Declaration,Calvin Coolidge (from BurrNY)

“It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we
have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over
the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for
something more modern. But that reasoning can not be applied to this great charter. If
all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that
is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is
final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions.”
