Armstrong Economics Blog/The Hunt for Taxes
Posted Aug 21, 2019 by Martin Armstrong
I have been warning about the hunt for taxes. You must realize that the worst is unfolding at the state and municipal levels of local governments because they cannot create money as is the case at the federal levels. Therefore, they pass draconian laws and enforce insane things just to raise money.
In New Jersey, I was given a parking ticket in a private parking lot. Of course, it was illegal. They know you will pay the $35 rather than take a whole day off from work to fight an illegal ticket in the first place.
Marlton, New Jersey, one of the most corrupt towns in the state, set up roadblocks during Rush Hour. I was caught up in these unconstitutional money grabs twice. You have to show your license, registration, and insurance card. Missing anything and you were sent to another line for your $125 ticket. Sure you can fight it. You will spend $125,000 and win.
They know lawyers charged way higher than any other profession to ensure you cannot actually fight illegal actions by the states. This is part of the cycle and it will end in civil unrest. Welcome to the end of this wave of the Economic Confidence Model.
