Samoa on Socialist path

Re: Taxing pastors envelopes 

Who will be keeping a tab or tally of how many ceremonies a pastor performs? Weddings and birthdays are planned, but a death in the family is an unexpected event, unless the Government has an officer from the office of revenue residing as a spy in every village. 

The government is slowly and methodically leading Samoa down the socialist path already lived by the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
