Taxes are theft. Why do so many people claim to hate them yet at the same time defend their existence? They usually state 'Oh but the government
cannot exist without them'. This has yet to be proven and is untrue, buy a government bond if you want to support government, do not spit rhetoric
about how 'taxes are evil but let's cut back on them because they are IHMO necessary duh'. Stop trying to be a flip flop, stick with the issue at
hand: you like the idea that your government and fellow man approve of theft while ennacting anti-theft laws or you are against them completly.
Since some of you are undoubtly willing to reply with 'well, yeah but you can be for taxes just not for lots of them, there is no absolute in the
issue'. I give you this analogy: The death penalty. You are either for or against this, there is no way to beat around the bush, just as there is
with taxes: for or against.
You are either for mandatory theft or you are not. I cannot see how a person can be inbetween on the issue and I am tired of politicians ranting on
about 'well, crack whores have a right to live', they do but not at my expense without my permission or they give you 'taxes are bad mmm'kay but
we still need them mmm'kay', is this not the biggest flip flop issue of all: Politicians claiming to be against but not just totally.
So, are you for or against legalized theft?
