Refusal to pay
If it comes to pass that President Trump signs the proposed Republican tax-reduction bill that clearly benefits his billionaire friends without letting the American public know how much it will personally benefit him and his family, then he should be considered as corrupt as every other dictator in the past who seized power and then looted his country’s treasury. Since the American public is not privy to Trump’s holdings nor how much money he may be hiding in offshore bank accounts, then in no way should we continue to be responsible taxpayers.
Let it be made perfectly clear if Trump’s bottom line is secretly enhanced by the proposed legislation, then we the people should rise up and refuse to pay taxes of any sort. And if that’s the opening shot of the next American Revolution, then so be it. Let the chips fall where they may.
