If there is no struggle, there is no progress.

- Frederick Douglas

Whose Home?

If you own a home, it should be yours, but if you can be taxed out of that home, you have been and are nothing more than a tenant.

We all appear to be little more than tenants of the municipalities, as property taxes take their toll. New Hampshire residents — a state always happy to tax — are seeing their property taxes skyrocket, if they have a nice view. A nearly 800% appreciation in assessment in one year? Ouch.

Let’s say it like it is: As far as the government is concerned, you are just a tenant paying rent, and if you miss your rent payment, you are losing your property. That being said, do we really have property ownership in the United States? Doesn’t sound like it.
