The problem with you and every other no tax person, is that you blame all of this on the feds, Federal Income Tax, Social Security & MediCARE
What planet do you live on? There is no doubt that on some level, state corruption is prevalent in America but if you truly believe it is anywhere
near the extent of federal government, your delusional. The federal government for decades has used the interstate commerce clause to regulate, tax
and criminalize things that by any rational standard is almost comical. It extorts state governments every day of the year by forcing them to comply
to whatever draconian standard it decides is appropriate or cuts off funding to the citizens of the state on federal assistance.
and I do taxes for a living
Who exactly do you do taxes for? The IRS? What exactly is your justification for the government having enough money to fund and purchase 1.8 billion
hollow point bullets for a domestic military force (DHS) you think they can afford this yet somehow need more taxes? For what? 1.2 million domestic
Thats just the tip of the iceberg pal, I could go on all night about money they spend that they don't need by any rational definition. All....
Night...... 8.1 billion dollars for TSA who have caught how many terrorists? How much was the new NSA center that cost 2 billion dollars? What are
they doing there besides breaking the law? We fund that and they need..... More?
The rest is all laid at the feet of your local, county, and state level politicians, yay go states rights. Local politicians are some of lowest scum
bags on the face of the earth.
But that's what you don't get. Without federal interference, the constituents of local and state politicians could possibly get it right. It's not
automatic and would take work but the federal government would never let that happen in it's current form. Look at how it locked down all states
during the shutdown on "federal land" and held them hostage. They do this on a monthly basis with any federal law they wan't to get them into check
with and it's always something else they use to force compliance.
