I’m a tax accountant by trade. Today, I had a client call me and inquire about one of the many “tax relief” companies that advertise on the radio and TV. I had to tell him that they were basically peddling false hope. I really hate those commercials.
I hung up, and started thinking about it.
If I had an honest mistake…a bad one, but honest. I could be penalized to the point my life is ruined. If my client messes up and didn’t pay his taxes. His life can be ruined. However, the people that make the rules…they can declare meaningless wars, make laws that create economic ruin, sell influence, screw us over time and time again…and odds are, they’ll be fine. Hell…they’ll probably still win reelection. So I have just one question…
How is this fair? How is it fair that our lives are ruined for relatively minor, honest mistakes whereas they are perfectly fine committing horrendous mistakes that ruin so many lives?
How…how is this fair?
Long Live the Constitution.
