Libertarian Party start rolling out manifesto


Starting off with the abolishment of income tax, that temporary tax that became permanent and is ruining this country each day it stays in place.

Abolishing Income Tax
Income Tax, like much of the badly thought out legislation brought forward by modern day governments, was initially "sold" to the public as a temporary tax, something that was needed simply to deal with a specific pressing problem—the financing of the Napoleonic Wars.

However, as governments over the years became accustomed to having the tax provide a useful revenue stream, all pretence at hypothecation vanished—the Income Tax became a part of our daily lives, which most people now accept unthinkingly.

Other parties wouldn't ever dare propose this, as it means the end of big government and a return to freedom.
