American history covers the protest, No taxation without representation. By modern time, society may have progressed far enough to elicit a revised protest: No taxation.

A % of the wealth going to government may allow for public commodities, even running water, so as to seem like an absolute necessity. I consider the cost too high: coerced involvement in the behaviors of the infrastructure taxes sustain.

Paying taxes amounts to partially consenting - partially, because social necessity coerces the payment - to sustain an infrastructure of confessed purposes members of the general public may not wish to sustain. One good example is the college pot head who sustains a Drug Enforcement Agency infrastructure's arrests of other pot heads. Does paying taxes, if the tax payer is aware of DEA Enabling, of accessory to the arrest and accessory to the crime at the same time, count as snitching?

Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act(s) may become too coercive not to cover the arrest of message forum rebels with a Sufi Muslim bias. Anything national law is sustained by the infrastructure taxes sustain.

Methods of transcending taxes include astral telepathy networking farms and cutting the useful resources economy off cold turkey from government enabling. Communal living reliant on the land sufficient to substantially curb global warming emissions.

My email is . I only accept food and shelter for work accomplished and from patrons of the arts, and don't pay taxes, and am willing to work for food and shelter.

Sounds like slavery to me. Hey I know I'm a wage slave as most but work for just food and shelter no thanks.
But do tell me more about astral telepathy networking farms that sounds super duper.

It's the third door on the left, the third door. Yes, that's the one.

Successful capitalism...a touch of socialism and a bit of Ponzi.

This is the second thread in 3 threads in which You mention Sufism™ Why not just do A thread about Sufism™ and encompass all that You wish to convey?

Did You do an introduction thread? Or are We just supposed to read You and what You type about??

Would the aforementioned threads stand on their own merit or is the Sufi angle which makes it go?

Wasn't it the Sufi Hafiz who scribed:

Would You think it odd if Hafiz said
"I'm in Love with every Church,
with every Temple,
With every Mosque,
with every Shrine,
For it is there that I hear ALL the different names of the One God..."

Stay Hydrated...

Instead of abolishing all taxes, how about this ...

Add an extra form to your tax filings (all right, settle down, hold your applause).

On this form, you may specify how 70% of your taxes will be spent by the government. You can list up to 10 things that are a priority for you. If you like wars and military action in the Middle East, list it. If you want your money going out for foreign aid, add it. Social programs, space exploration, infrastructure, the environment, NSA spying programs, veteran's care, whatever is important to you that you think the government should be spending money on.

The other 30% will be at the government's discretion. That 30% would be necessary, because I don't think too many would list things like Congressional salaries on their list of priority spending.

Well if you really look into it “no taxation without representation “ was a scam and political propaganda..

The colonists had almost no taxes, by modern standards OR by the standards of the day..

Really they just wanted independence, and went to war to win the US by right of conquest.. THE MOST well established “right to rule” in history lol..

To your post as a whole..

The majority of those taxes go to the benefit of all..

Police , fire , roads, utilities, welfare..

What is a bad thing is corruption.. and now we actually have the ability to track every dollar, which could make corruption impossible.

MOST IMPORTANTLY.. and what all these anti government types forget. Is everything comes from the government..

All the money comes from them.. all ownership period comes from them..

If the government vanished tomorrow.. you don’t own your stuff.. the local warlord owns your stuff.

Maybe you should just list your prison commissary account number instead of your email. Accepting foos and shelter is income and susceptible to taxes as such...federal prison is not bad from what I hear...enjoy

Yep. We're going to abolish taxes.

And replace it with "crowdfunding" projects.

So, say someone proposes we build a bridge across the river.

Then, the proposal will go out on social media, like facebook, twitter, etc..and people will vote with "bitcoins" to fund the project or not. You won't need to have "chads" to vote. By then bitcoin will be the currency of the day, and every bitcoin is considered a vote.

Once the project gets enough bitcoin, to fund the project, that project will go ahead.

If the project doesn't get the critical minimum funding to proceed, then the project will be "shelved", and everyone gets back their bitcoin automatically. They can then use the bitcoin to "vote" and "fund" other projects.

That's how we will "govern" ourselves.

We will all pay for what we need.

No more giving politicians the power to serve special interests, while making the people pay the bill.

We the people want to pay for only what we the people use.
