There are two main ways you will pay tax, namely direct taxation on money you earn from your job or investments, and indirect taxation, which is mainly based on money you spend.

There are seven facts you need to take into account with direct taxation. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

13. Immigration: An all too familiar story about illegal immigration
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Skeptical Americans who continue to ignore the potentially very severe social and political impact of massive Mexican immigration should heed the following: According to the 2000 Census, the U.S. population had increased by about 13 percent from 1990, but the number of people who identified themselves as Mexican had grown by 53 percent.

If this trend continues, the majority of people in the United States could very well be of Mexican ancestry within a few decades. Mexico is clearly using both legal and illegal migration to strongly influence U.S. policies and future elections, and to eventually extend the Mexican nation. Another amnesty could speed up the process of creating Mexamerica. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.


Editor's Note: Europe has a similar problem with the Asians moving in for a better lifestyle; the major difference is that most of North America once belonged to the Mexicans. Are they simply reclaiming what is theirs by birthright?
