    I really don't think it's worth engaging with you , but I'll give it a try. Taxes are part of the cost of living in a civilized country. If you wish the borders protected, if you want your food to be safe, and your streets, and your house, you should be expected to shoulder a part of the cost. If you do not wish to, then leave civilization. Part of the very founding of this country was if you were being taxed, you had a right to representation in the governmental process.

    But in all truth, your "argument" borders on silliness. Pay taxes or move to Somalia. Other than that, it's valid to discuss what is a fair amount, how it should be spent. But if you don't want to live in civilization, leave.

      Read the thread. Nobody is disputing the need of taxes or what they provide to society. The dispute was whether a tax cut constitutes allowing someone to retain their personal property or if that is money dispensed by the government (i.e. "the people").
