Would you even believe me if I told you that not one penny of the hard-earned money you pay towards your income taxes goes to fund America?

One of the control phrases commonly used by those in power references how it’s your patriotic duty to pay your income tax. The propaganda is delivered in various forms, either written or in print, but the message is the same. You need to do your part to help make this government run by paying your “fair share” of taxes.
But what if I told you that you’ve been lied to for all these years and that your income tax payments do not fund your government, but instead go into the pockets of bankers? Before you call me crazy and click away, allow me to illustrate what the Grace Commission concluded in 1984. (Ronald Reagan ordered the work of the Grace Commission in 1982, and they delivered their report to Congress in January 1984.)
The report said that one-third of all income taxes are consumed by waste and inefficiency in the federal government, and another one-third escapes collection owing to the underground economy. “With two thirds of everyone’s personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the federal debt and by federal government contributions to transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services [that] taxpayers expect from their government.”

As you let that sink in, let me hit you with another one. Did you also know that paying income taxes is voluntary? I’m not joking. Check out the video excerpt below:
