    Let me take a wild stab in the dark and suggest that you wouldn't have included the following paragraph if Goldman had been saying BUY, BUY, BUY:

    But investors need to be very skeptical when looking at Goldman's forecasts for gold prices. Not only are they often wrong, but the bank frequently does the opposite of what it recommends.

    I didn't write that.

    I am in favor a gasoline tax to support roads for example. I am against a tax to confiscate wealth.

    There was no income tax really until 1913. Previously taxes on sprits, beer, tobacco, were suffient to run things.

    Taxes were added to sales of other things to pay for the war of 1812.

    In 1862 there was a first income tax, (3%) this was also needed to pay for war activities. Later it was repealed in 1895 by the supreme court.

    1913 the 16th amendment was the actual beginning of income tax but much later it was expanded to tax labor.

    The 60's of course had another bunch of wars to pay for; Vietnam, the Cold War, and LBJ/Democrats "War on Poverty".

    The war on poverty can never be won and we will never stop paying for it.

    To me it's interesting that until 1913 the U.S.A. managed to get by without taxing everyone in ever increasing amounts in ever more inventive ways.

    Why are you comparing life over a 100 years ago to now? Perhaps you'd like to travel back to the era of Dickens whilst you are at it. Or the Middle Ages. Or...
