Re­fusal to pay

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - OPINION -

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.
