As Conservatives and Federalists, we should look to the Holy Bible when it comes to the issue of taxes. God’s holy word and law presented a great outline when it comes to dealing with paying monies to worldly governments.
The left can talk about charity, compassion and love all it wants. Taking from others via government agencies may be compassionate to start off with but eventuall, it becomes a problem. Eventually, it becomes a wealth distribution scam. True acts of charity must be done of free will. While Jesus himself was concerned about his pending death, he knew what needed to be done.
So he made the choice to be arrested, brought to trial before Pontius Pilate (and called his bluff), suffered under him to much of Pilate’s disgust over how the Jews wanted his people to do their dirty work for them in this instance. We know the rest of the story, and we are grateful for what Christ did in our place.
The plan is simple; we as individuals write a check every year, and the tax rate for everyone small and great, rich and poor is the same. At least they are not marking us with the antichrist’s mark and number just yet for those I scared a bit with the way I worded the last sentence.
This would put an end to the class warfare scams the progressives have gotten away with for years.

“No one has taken it away from Me, but I lay it down on My own initiative. I have authority to lay it down, and I have authority to take it up again. This commandment I received from My Father.”— John 10:18
The “it” Jesus is talking about in the above passage from the Gospel of John is, of course, his life. But there are lessons to be gleaned here for other issues, such as the current debate about tax cuts and what is or isn’t biblical about them.
