S Centralia Washington. Tuesday August 10, 1937 vol. Xvi no. 187 editorial stamp tax led to revolution transaction tax fair and just mephistopheles in politics Bead the packs of history Back As far As you will the ques Tion of taxing the people to Money to pay the expense of gov 1 Ern ment has always been upper most in the minds of those who spend the Money. Taxation with out representation was. The rally ing cry of those Early colonists who my the Burden of the stamp tax imposed by great Britain. The bos ton Tea parly was a remonstrance that showed the feelings of he colonists in retaliation the Boston port Hill was enacted by the eng Lish parliament. It closed the port of Boston to All Commerce Untrif the losses were fully paid. These r cd sir taxation has always been a Paramount Issue. The puzzling thing now is Why has not someone Wise and Learned in finance Long w uttered a plan that meets All objections As to fairness of application and easiness of collection. The Best answer is perhaps that those in control wanted the other fellow to pay them. There should be no tax exemptions. Let who have wealth pay their share. In All the world s history covering a thou Sand years there has been but one Man that has offered a plan of just and Rea.

The iniquity of the present system or Lack of to is its inequality. It has bes ii air oven to those who Are honest in their convictions that a Small tax on All business transactions would be sufficient to care for All the necessary expenses of gov state and county a Iran Aelion tax is just a on each and every Busi Ness transaction starting with he raw material that go into production and consumption. It May be two per cent or it May be More or even less. But the underlying Princi ple is that no to can escape it. A Correct application of the principle of lowing and collection of that one tax will do away with other tax levies which Are now harassing Industry and business for after All government expenses must be paid by the ultimate con Sumers in the prices paid for food clothing and what not.
