Taxes Are Too Damn High!
April 23, 2014 by Free The Future
Taxes collected this year hit a new all-time record! This means that Americans pay more in taxes than food, housing, and clothing combined!
Lower taxes means you get to keep more of your hard-earned money. Lower taxes mean the economy can grow. Lower taxes are better for everyone.

Works every time. Glad I live in TN.
Its just common sense. Any married man knows the more money you hand your wife the more she spends...
Great post; LOL!
My wife’s a conservative but she sure can spend. It’s her own money money she worked very hard for.
They’re women, regardless of politics. Once they see “Sale 50% off shoes”, they turn into rabid wolves.

Same here but the last year we’ve really had to buckle our belts but when I used to make the bigger bucks we spent it directly in proportion...: )
“Theyre women, regardless of politics. Once they see Sale 50% off shoes, they turn into rabid wolves.”
My wife grew up in abject poverty - as in just above starving - and she won’t spend a dime if she can avoid it.
Shoes, clothes, and tons of other useless junk as well.
7 Worst States for Retirement
how’s it for retirement?
(this claims not good)
I like the Chatanooga area.
That article in that post is crap. Go back and read it’s short paragraph on TN. Nothing but simple broad statements.
For example, “high state and local sales tax so you’ll pay more for everything you buy”. First, no crap Sherlock (to the author not you), that’s what a sales tax is and 48 states have one. Second, yes, at a max of 9.25% it might be considered “high”. But we again have no income tax. States with both take more between the two taxes.
Crime rate? Take out Nashville and Memphis and it’s non-existent persay.
Low property taxes, low cost of living, above average wages, decent year around weather, plenty of opportunity and growth, etc.
Could do worse.
Some states are definitely worse than others as far as overall tax burden, but relying purely upon the absence of a state income tax can be misleading. For instance, I love Texas, wonderful state, great conservative culture. You will, however, discover property taxes nearly on a par with New Jersey there as well. They’re going to get their pound of flesh, one way or the other, no matter where you go. If it’s not an income tax, it’s a property tax, bizarrely high vehicle registration fees (Washington State), sales tax, et cetera. It pays to check out all the ways a state can nick you financially and tally them up, not an especially easy thing to do. Tennessee is better than any northeastern state outside of possibly New Hampshire. It’s not exactly the cheapest state either, though. Whatever happened to Tenncare or whatever they’re calling the state healthcare boondoggle these days?
I didn’t figure it changed that much from when I lived there in the early 90’s.
Actually it has changed quite a bit. Franklin (where I live) has doubled in population. Smyrna and Murfreesboro have grown also. Even Columbia in Maury county.
West Nashville is starting to expand. And the Gultch area just north of the downtown Nashville loop has exploded.
Kind of takes away the serenity of a small town but it’s still just a short drive out of Franklin to be back in the hills with nothing for miles.
