In this meme-ifyed letter, a Danish teacher slams her native country’s horrendous tax-rates and excessive government dependency.
“I am a school teacher in Denmark making about $61,000/year. We also have free education,” she said. You already have a problem. How can you sustain paying teachers high wages when education is free? Moving on.
“You don’t have to pay for the doctor or the hospital, and students even get paid to learn. It all sounds so great, right? However, I forgot to mention that nothing is ever free — the minimum income tax in Denmark is 40 percent,” the teacher said.
She then goes on to mention the astronomical taxes and prices of various other things — like a 25 percent sales tax, 180 percent vehicle tax and the $10 gallon of gas:
Gosh, and we complained when gas was $4 a gallon. Yikes.
“Denmark is the highest taxed nation in the world — taxed an average 80 percent on every dollar earned,” she said. “Danes have the highest personal debt in the world. Few will ever own a car or a home.”
Insanity. The government probably thinks you’re better off without the prospect of ever making a life for yourself.
The teacher starts to wrap up with the suicide rates in Denmark — which are strikingly high at an average 20.8 suicides per 100,000 people. The United States suicide rates are almost half that.
“Everyone wants the American dream. In Denmark’s neo-communism economy, no one will ever own or accomplish anything.” the letter concluded.
Every one of us was put on this earth to work, to utilize the talents that were instilled in us by God. This is why socialism is so wretched and evil — the gifts we were given are wasted due to a lasting dependency on a corrupt and abusive government.
