“Taxation Must Go Global,” Says German Finance Minister

    n one of the bluntest statements on the topic by any globalist thus far, controversial German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble (shown) openly called for “global standards” and “global governance” in taxation to ensure that governments can continue extracting huge sums in taxes from the wealth-producing class in perpetuity. In an October 30 column, Schäuble, who regularly promotes globalism and domestic police-state measures, also touted the global tax-information regime long pushed by socialists and globalists just signed in Berlin between more than 120 governments and regimes.

    The German finance chief, writing for the self-styled “world’s opinion page” known as Project Syndicate, lambasted businesses for seeking to legally reduce their worldwide tax burden by “adapting their structures.” Citizens, too, must pay more taxes, he argued. In essence, Schäuble claimed that because of a globalized economy and business system, humanity must now submit to a globalized taxation regime as well. “Tax legislation has not kept pace with these developments,” he wrote, echoing calls by globalists around the world for more plunder. “They need to be adapted to the economic reality of digital services.”

    Without a global system of what Schäuble called “workable rules,” which of course would require global rulers, governments and dictators worldwide are “losing revenue that they urgently need in order to fulfill their responsibilities.” He never specifies what exactly he believes those “responsibilities” of governments to be. In the United States, the Founding Fathers established a Republic for the express purpose of protecting the God-given rights of individuals. By contrast, countless other governments around the world have been founded largely to enslave and plunder the population. Some, such as the National Socialist (Nazi) regime that once ruled Germany, were created to literally exterminate certain classes of "inferior" people.

    Translation:

    They've taxed their people to the max and can't pay their bills, so they want us to pay for their extravagances.

    Most European countries consider U.S taxpayers to be grossly under-taxed, and they want to keep handing out goodies to their citizens so they can stay in power. They want us to help them do it.

    Well, nice try Deutschland, and the U.N. and whoever else wants to impose a global tax. Thankfully, we have Article 1 section 8 of the U.S. Constitution.

    And a government owned by the money masters. Fiat currency is the only paper they obey.
