Everytime you pay your federal taxes, you are paying the government to go out and kill people. You are paying for george bush to buy more weapons, invest more in technology that is only used to kill.

Look at this image right here.

Most of aour money is going towards war.

If that isn't sickening enough look at this.

And one attack on kerry is that he wasn't will to spend nessiary money for the millitary. What the #. How can anyone who wants to cut military spending be on the wrong side of the issue. This is total BS, and what is worse, when we send in our taxes, it is spent on this crap.

Republicans don't want to raise taxes, well i know a great way to reduce them.

Haven't paid taxes for about 10 yrs...And now I'm taking back what I paid to them before then...LOL

The military has always come first, that's one of the reasons we still use fosil fuels. You can't run an F16 on solar pannels. And I don't think wind power would propell an aircraft carrier. The ruling elite control the spending of our money, that should be used to make life good for us all. But instead they use it to protect their wealth and power.
We live in a paranoia paradise...

The only way to stop the arms race and the invading of other countries and the inevatible totalitarianism is to refuse to be a part of it. Go on strike. Refuse to work to pay for death. Refuse to work for the arms race. Throw away their credit cards and refuse to pay the bill. Sign up for tax exemption. Default on your morgage. Organise your heighbourhood into a government no go zone. Grow/raise your own food. Generate your own electricity. Make your own clothes. Grow your own weed and brew your own beer (to help deal with having no money...lol). Destroy your car and ride a bike or walk. Refuse to allow your energy to be used for death weapons. De-programme yourself from a competitive to a cooperative mentality. DON"T vote, being a part of a scam only legitimizes it. You have power beyond the vote. Take all of your money out of their bank. Burn their check book. Act out. Cooperate don't allienate. Protest. Don't give them a second of peace, they sure don't give us any. We've fought them for every scrap they've ever given us.
Is that a little too much? Well enjoy your future, ya'll deserve it.

There will never be such a thing as a "good" government. Government regardless of what it calls itself is there to secure the wealth and power of the privaliged few. That's what govs have always been for, nothing will ever change. You can vote till you burst but you get the same thing regardless of who's name you choose. The agenda is to secure the wealth and power of the privaliged and they will use whatever methods necessary.

Good post Acecool. (scuse my ranting I'm cranky)

Tax evasion is a very, very serious crime, and a Federal crime at that.
Tax Fraud
can bring a lot of trouble.

Thanks for illistrating the point beautifully. If you don't give up your money so they can use it to buy weapons of death for them to keep thier wealth, they will come violently take it from you. Of course it is a felony, they will steal your money at gun point and then throw you in jail. Don't believe me? Don't pay your taxes and see how long it takes from them to come and get you.

Sounds almost like a protection racket. You either pay me some of what you earn, or we will be forced to mess you up. If a street gang started calling it a felony, would it be ok if they take you money?

And the government still cut a trillion dollars for a tax cut, if it's not the military or in tax cuts it seems that the government isn't funding it.

True, however the government cannot continue this way and hope to survive. This is the same way the USSP fell. Too much spending on the military.

when the limit breaks down they will go over the edge with our money, it will go strictly to maintaining and operating the heirarchy. the warmachine will spin out of control, unless we deny their means at this point. in my own crazy theoretical world. we shall see...
