Your taxes are SUPPOSED to be used to create the infrastructures around you.

Yea but they aren't supposed to bail out "too big to fail" corporations.

They aren't supposed to fund the bonuses of Wall Street CEO's that ruined the economy.

They aren't supposed to fatten an increasingly larger government that doesn't fix the infrastructure but instead creates more dependent constituencies to further increase power.

They aren't supposed to pay for the interest of the printed money that is created by the Fed. Imagine that, the Fed prints money out of thin air, we work and sweat fro it, and pay a huge portion of it back with taxes and still have to borrow more printed money because there is never enough to pay for the interest.

Yup.. thats what I implied by using the word SUPPOSED in big letters.

I understand what you are saying.. but if you are an American.. the exact same applies to you except with the Socialized part reversed.. the US is somewhere up there with North Korea with being the most brainwashed population on the planet.. so try not to be such a hypocrite.

The difference between you and me is, If I don't want to pay my taxes anymore because I feel I have been done by the system. I can quit my job live off the system for the rest of my life because I am insured to do so by my government (a very basic living). While your money goes to paying for a war and the removal of your liberties, mine goes to something that I might need in later life ITSHTF. Why don't you mind insuring your car?? Its not to give profits the insurance company is it?

My income taxes MAINLY go towards worthwhile things IMO... obviously there are a lot of things i don't agree with. If you can't understand that, then you obviously don't have the capacity to understand the US is only a single country in the world and that very very few countries have the same policies.

My government for the most part try to protect us from the Corporate MLM monster.
