So you claim not to be scared of someone holding a gun to your head, yet you are scared of someone taking money out of your bank account?<quoted text>
Everyone has to pay taxes in some form. If you don't you can be prosecuted. The more blatant or defiant, the more likely the IRS will come after you. Federal Government has an unlimited check book so they could bankrupt you while putting you in jail going through the process. I get democrats are all about scoial issues. Blacks, gays and decriminalizing illegal activies and people.
However, with out the finances, there is no social. People have no money. Or they horde. Stockpile and so on.
Now to your point. Yes. Taxation without representation is a crime. It is how and why America started over 200 years ago. Taxing the wealthy, or well off, "just a little more" is robbery because you are taking from someone who earned it or manages their wealth well only to hand it over to someone who hasn't. Entitlements and handouts are single handedly bankrupting America because there is no return on investment. Investing in our military and the like is a return on investment because it is tangible and materials can be resold with depreciation factored in. How do you depreciate a human on unemployment for 99 weeks or welfare? You can't. There is no value.
So, again, entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps wic and so on, yes, help some short term for humanitarian reasons, but those humanitarian reasons only go so far when it comes to OTHER PEOPLES MONEY. Which is what taxes are. OTHER PEOPLES MONEY. How can stand any where in America and act as if those kicking into the pot have no leg to stand on or not in any position to question how their money is being spent? Again, shows your lack of experience in business. Even you have a right to question how your portion is being spent. But you believe in a different ideology that is a "sugar sprinkles and unicorn's" utopia fairy tale where everyone gets along and their is no conflict.
The rest of us will come visit you when we need a break from reality.
I see you refuse to stand up for the principles you claim to have.
I think we are represented by our tax dollars. You don't? Then do what the founders did coward.
