I was really bad in history in high school but weren't the taxes quite high in the late 1700's early 1800's? I thought that was what was driving people to go west? I know inflation average between the late 1920's and now is only 7%! I found that out in Hemmings Motor News while perusing vehicles I am sorry I ever sold!

Taxes were comparatively low. England levied taxes on the colonists to pay for a series of disastrous wars. They also mandated the importation of taxed goods that carried an import tax or tax stamp, rather than allow the domestic production of goods which would not be subject to tax. Thus, colonists were subject to taxes the British were not required to pay. And given that colonists were not directly represented in Parliament, we get the "taxation without representation" saying. The U.S. after independence primarily was a low tax country with few taxes. These were primarily consumption taxes. Most taxes up until the advent of the income tax with the 16th amendment were consumption and excise taxes. I.E. no income taxes, property taxes, or other "fees" masquerading as taxes.

P.S. I got my passport photos, and fingerprint cards done today. Now Pike County is as rural and backward as you can get, but the local Sheriff's office deputy who did my cards says they do every other instance requiring fingerprints electronically. He said he can't believe that the BATFE still uses manually inked paper fingerprint cards. When doing my fingerprints, he really had to press hard to get enough ink as the pads were kind of dried out from lack of use. He said that if Mo can go to electronic fingerprint ID, the only reason the BATFE would not do so for this application is to deliberately slow walk applications for something they do not agree with.

You are getting as bad as me, you post and then go back an houtr later and see the post sitting there and say "damn, I forgot to send that " and hit send again. :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I could not believe that my pistol purchase permit went through in 6 days! In NJ!!!!!!!!!!!! Even my FFL guy was totally amazed. And the cop I shoot with and who certifies all of the other retired LEO's said it is unheard of. He has to go through the State Police due to where he is located and it takes him months. A retired cop and certified firearms instructor, months to get a permit. You better believe all the ladies in the police department got a very nice Christmas card from me! And a good recommendation to the Mayor who is a friend of mine.
I actually did not have to get fingerprinted since they still had them on record from my firearms id card from 2002. It is strange how laws are different around the country. I seriously doubt, or hope, I never have to deal with the BATF. Since I am in NJ if I have to deal with them it means I did something really bad! I guess if I still held my pyrotechnics license then I would have to deal with them but I let that expire years ago. Commercial fireworks just got too technical and they were no fun to set off anymore. Give me a real fuse any day.
