We are not government property.
Dan Taxation Is Theft Behrman is an international speaker, promoting the ideas that Taxation Is Theft, that individual freedom is paramount to the government, and that we are not government property. He is the founder of the Taxation Is Theft Shop, and host of the Taxation Is Theft Podcast.
Dan was born in Los Angeles, California and worked successfully as a video producer and editor for commercial and non-profit organizations and celebrities. He is also a software engineer who has worked with multi-million dollar international startups and Fortune 500 companies. In his career he has never found a problem too big to solve, recognizing that the best solution is often the simplest.
Dan has dedicated a lot of time to many non-profit organizations. He has supported the Libertarian Party and dozens of their candidates with training and resources. He has also worked with the Sea Save Foundation, a Santa Monica, CA based international ocean conservation organization. Currently, he is supporting Students for Liberty Uganda and many other African freedom-based initiatives, with resources and guidance.
He is a supporter of free markets, individual rights, environmental and social issues, and has delivered this message to 6 continents, empowering people in some of the world's most impoverished nations.
As a digital nomad, he is currently running his presidential campaign from Cancun, Mexico. As president, he seeks to transform the federal government into one that interacts with its citizens on a purely voluntary basis, so that we can be free from the coercive nature of abusive taxation and regulations.
He is running for president because he believes no other United States president or presidential candidate has ever understood that the government belongs to people, and we are not government property. The purpose of government is to protect our rights, not to force us to live our lives in any particular way that a simple majority has deemed preferable. Any person should be free to live their life however they prefer, so long as they don't hurt others and don't take their stuff.
Does he really believe that taxation is theft?
There are two things to consider when talking about taxes. The first is necessity, and the second is morality.
Necessity asks if it is absolutely necessary to both provide all of the government services, and is it necessary to tax to pay for them. Because there are so many different services, it's difficult to list them all out, however, Dan has created a ton of content on YouTube and Facebook, and is actively discussing alternative solutions on Those platforms as well as Instagram, Twitter, and his blog and podcast.
Morality asks the question if it is theft. By its very definition, it is theft, and this can not be disputed. If you don't pay, they will take it. If you try to hide it from them, they will arrest you. If you resist, they will hurt you. Theft is taking property which is not yours by the use of force or the threat of force. That is exactly what the government does every day to millions of people.
Putting these two together, we have to ask, is it ok to steal to pay for a necessity? Or should we start looking for alternatives? Dan "Taxation Is Theft" Behrman insists that we must start looking for alternatives. We must accept that taxation is theft and should not be the primary means of providing public services in a civilized society.
Taxation Is Theft
Taking property or money from a person without their consent or
knowledge is theft. Taxes are taken without consent, by threat of
imprisonment. This is not a civilized way to pay for society.
Fire The IRS
The first place to end government corruption is by ending the illegal and unethical collection practices performed by the IRS.
End The Fed
Through inflation, the Fed steals more from your savings without your knowledge. Their existence is based on the premise that they lend money to the government, but this is a lie - a game of three-card monte.
Erase The Debt
The government borrowed money using our sweat as equity. There
isn't enough money or gold on earth to pay this debt, which is fine
with the banks. This is not OUR debt, and we have no obligation to
Instead of figuring out ways to pay extortive healthcare costs
with socialized payments, we lower costs by allowing new
medications to reach the market and breaking up big pharma's
Banks partner with government to give banks special protection,
thus inflating the market and leaving students with a lifetime of
debt. We need to completely rethink higher education.
Legalize Pineapple Pizza
Nobody has the right to tell us what we can or can not put in
our own bodies, especially when it harms nobody.
End Civil Asset Forfeiture
This is a program that allows government to steal property from Americans, without any due process. It's another extortion racket operated by those who are paid to protect us.
End The Drug War
The war on drugs has failed to reduce the usage of any drugs,
but has caused an unimaginable amount of pain and suffering to
innocent bystanders, costing over $1 trillion.
Pardon The Innocent
Millions of innocent people sit in jail for non-violent offenses. They have caused no actual harm to society. But this program is costing us all. A full pardon would return these people to productive lives, able to get a jobs, and reduce the burden on the criminal justice system. If congress refuses to change the drug laws, this would render them ineffective.
End Daylight Savings
Nobody likes this. It's an outdated practice that serves no purpose in the modern world. Many countries have already stopped using it.
9th & 10th Amendments
Knowing that men would eventually write laws to trample rights that were not explicitly written in the constitution, the founders added the 9th and 10th amendments as a final attempt to stop government from growing beyond its intended purpose.
Bring Them Home
All of the rhetoric about supporting the troops is a distraction to the fact that the only real way to support them is to bring them home from endless, unproductive, unconstitutional, and illegal nation building ventures.
This doesn't take taxpayer subsidies and doesn't need to cost anything. All it takes is to stop robbing the poor of their opportunities.
We are at war. If we truly want to end it, we have to be bigger than to continue the fighting. We are not at risk and have nothing to fear. It's time we stop fighting and start setting an example for the rest of the world.
A Taco Truck on Every Corner
Small businesses are being destroyed by restrictive license requirements, usually put in place by bigger businesses who are afraid of competition. This practice infringes on people's rights and increases the cost of living.
