How do I lower Taxes?

I am sure this has been ansvered some where but I couldnt find any post so..

Taxes is killing my Nation! I just hit 68% and there seems to be no end.
I guess the problem steems from the issues I deal with every day and I understand that I could make cheaper choices, but..
Most issues is like "People drink to much do you a: spend billions on helping them or b) stand them against a wall and shoot them!!"
Its insane!
Now I have read that some nation has taxes on 11%! What there solutions? Deathcamps???

Yeah, you have to be pretty evil to lower taxes by a lot. Don't fund anything, don't give anyone any money, never pick issues where people are asking you to pay for something for them. It isn't too pretty, I had a nation with high civil and political liberties and 100% income tax, by the time I got the tax down to 50%, that was all gone.

This game is about extremes, though really, and it isn't meant to reflect real life. So yeah, that's basically it.

You want to pick issue choices that WON'T be spending money. 9/10 of the issues you get will raise your taxes if you choose to add/improve/build on a particular choice.

Thus, stick with choices that spend the less money in regards to what the choice is to be.

Well if my choices are fascist or commie then I unfurl the red flag. But just to test the game...

I dismiss a lot of issues that they want money for. We have Average Civil Liberties, a Powerhouse economy, and Superb Pollitical Freedoms. My Civ Libs just went down b/c of the blasted censorship that was tied to allowing more guns. Some things like that make me hate NS *but not enough to quit :lol: *
