Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, & our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom, if agreed, stayed home to raise the kids.
What in the heck happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?’
I hope this goes around Australia at least 832 times and more!
GO AHEAD. . . BE AUSTRALIAN make these people redundant at the next election!

Tax his land, Tax his bed,
Tax the table, at which he’s fed.
Tax his tractor, Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes are the rule.
Tax his work, Tax his pay,
he works for peanuts anyway!
Tax his cow, Tax his goat,
Tax his pants, Tax his coat.
Tax his ties, Tax his shirt,
Tax his work, Tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco, Tax his drink,
Tax him if he tries to think.
Tax his cigars, Tax his beers,
If he cries tax his tears.
Tax his car, Tax his gas,
Find other ways to tax his ass.
Tax all he has, then let him know
that you won’t be done till he has no dough.
When he screams and hollers; then tax him some more,
tax him till he’s good and sore.
Then tax his coffin, Tax his grave,
Tax the sod into which he’s laid...
Put these words upon his tomb,
“Taxes drove me to my doom...”
When he’s gone, do not relax,
it’s time to apply, the Inheritance tax.
