    Ever since we`ve had two world wars, the government has convinced the sheeple to pay taxes to justify paying for hospitals, social securities & other state funded care. But the fact taxes started after World War 1 & 2 means we`re paying taxes to sponsor Government State Terrorism.

    The Government`s war on drugs amounts to the shipment of illegial drugs, for example Opium in Afghanistan - of which America is it`s number one consumer. Apply the channels of distribution, with 15% plus markup - then it is sold illegially in states to justify funding of HMOs, public & private rehab clinics. So money is constantly being laundred while common people are shamed and disgraced - yet when hollywood celebs use drugs, they get a slap on the wrists and pay millions at a private rehab and still get awards while the common people wind up in prison.

    Or how about the war on Terrorism? Perhaps it goes hand in hand with certain arms & underground markets, to justify war-p

    War-policing its own citizens, who then become criminals in court of law and thus essentially concluded as `domestic terrorists`.

    So how would the Cold War have played out with Russia still holding Greater Alaska? (I guess though that the US or the UK would have grabbed it at a time of Russian weakness- ie most of the 19th century)

    Pretty sure the Dutch `owned` some pretty important places too byt alas, the timeline only starts after that. Our heritage includes such wonders like Harlem (Haarlem), Brooklyn (Breukelen), New York (Nieuw Amsterdam), Wall Street etc.

    McGovern1981: "Taxes have exsisted since Ancient Egypt..."

    True. Ancient Egypt had lots of different taxes though - but not with real money; in the sense that Egyptians paid each other in goods or labour. So hunters & fishermen paid with food, Carpenters paid with labour & goods. Every ancient households had to pay a labour tax anually by actually going to work in the mines or canals. Alot of wealthy Egyptians also paid poor people to do this - perhaps as a form of taxable deduction. Haha.

    I was only focused on the historical aspect of the North American timeline when it came to taxable incomes.

    Either my browser isn`t running this properly, or France still owns half of Canada. Either way, I`m concerned.
