Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago and our nation was the most prosperous in the world, had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What the hell happened ?????

america's got a big head. if it's like this now, i don't wanna know what it's gonna be like when it's time for me to have a family and own a house.

You have to remember that 100 years ago the US was still on the gold standard, World War 1 hadn't hit yet, and neither had the Great Depression. The political and economic environment was very different, and cars were still new so we didn't need something like the gasoline tax. The world has changed a lot since then, and it is no surprise that taxes have too.

Wow this is crazy! There are seven different taxes for telephone ALONE!
It sucks that the government likes to suck the money out of us in every way possible...
