I think if a comprehensive independent study was conducted, we would see that if the people knew where the taxes were going to, can see results and
understand why those taxes are needed, the people would embrace the taxes they pay in a better light.
As I see it today, I rarely see the results of what my taxes do. Sure we have roads, but those could have been built by private hands (in most cases
they are, just with tax money.) Sure we have mail service, but again, could easily be handled by a private carrier or multiple private carriers.
Main point is....when the people do not see the results of paying taxes or understand why they are going to get hit with more taxes because they have
made certain life choices, then there is a push back against such blatant misuse of a tax system.
Go to a consumption tax..the rich will pay more cause they buy toys and the poor will pay less because they will most likely only be buying the
necessities of life. It is the only viable means I could see before our tax structure collapses under its own massive weight.
