Personally, I'm sick of paying for the american government "knife and gun club"... I watch around here as public schools get worse and worse, the
teachers give less and less of a #, and private/charter schools (schools that don't rely on the government money) getting better and better! Right
now it seems like all our tax money is being spent on military so we can go invade some country that doesn't run the way our government thinks it
should. Because I'm an American Citizen, I'm forced to pay for the government's wars... wars against supposed terrorism, wars against comunism, and
wars against drugs.
Yes, I said forced... like was stated earlier, there is no law that says we have to pay taxxes, but there is a law that says we go to jail if we
don't. The laws that tell us what happens if we don't are really messed up... I met a guy in county jail that was getting sent away for 5 years
(unable to support his wife and 3 kids, unable to continue his teaching career, etc...) just because he wrote notes on most of his reciepts (such as
dates, or persons names involved with the trabnsaction, etc...). When he wrote the notes, he apparently 'altered' the information. They basically
told him he was screwed because he didn't know that 'altering a document' meant anything... even having more dust on it than when the document was
written! Sad thing is that they wouldn't just allow him to redo his taxxes and withdraw any document that was apparently 'altered'. #ing sad, if
you ask me! I'm willing to bet they spend more tax money prosecuting and incarcerating him than they would have made off of him, but oh well...
that's the way our gov works and that is why our gov will ultimatly fail. jackasses.
