Book Excerpt

Next, the other issue that is of major importance is taxes.  It is painfully obvious at this point that the executives want to pay less taxes. The capitalists understand that their profits are lowered substantially if they are made or forced to pay taxes.  Historically, the Democratic Party has used taxation of the rich as a means to redistribute wealth in the economy.  The taxation from the rich as well as corporations is used to help fund the entitlement systems.  In turn, the entitlement systems are used to help the less fortunate in America.  Thus, the Federal Government is forced to take care of the influx of undocumented workers that the corporations are encouraging to come to America as a source of cheap labor in the first place. 

So, the question at hand for the capitalists/owner class is how to keep their profits from being taxed by the Federal Government.  A strategy that they constantly employ is to make sure that Republicans get elected to major offices within the American government.  Then, another strategy is decrease the marginal tax rate on their profits.  In essence, the capitalists/owner class is very happy with the fact that they can get rich off the backs of the undocumented workers.  However, the capitalists/owner class doesn’t want to help support them through taxation!    

Where is the corporate responsibility?  The way I see it, since the capitalists/owner class has encouraged the undocumented workers to enter America illegally and hire them for menial labor jobs; then the capitalists/owner class is inherently responsible for them.  The capitalists/owner class owns all undocumented workers, point blank period.  Why aren’t these people being given a decent wage?  In fact, I would go so far as to say why are these people being allowed to enter the country illegally in the first place?  Why aren’t American people being employed by the capitalists/owner class?  Why aren’t American people being paid a decent wage for their efforts?  In essence, there is no need for undocumented workers in the first place.  I am tired of hearing the excuse that American people are unwilling or unable to do the tasks that the capitalists/owner class requires.  This whole issue can be remedied with corporate responsibility.
