I am.

It would surprise you to know, I live across the street from you!

Exactly. All the Western governments have been taken over by "Them". There is indeed no where to run.

If I don't get in line, are you going to use force to put me in line or thrown me out, if I don't consent?
Don't pay your taxes and see what happens.

Do you go to someone's else house and tell them you don't consent to their authority?

Then mow your law, it's not some upkeep.

We are feeling the luv for ya, honest.
If you're comfortable with being a victim of theft that's your prerogative. Just don't expect others to be so understanding.

Sounds like he consented, so there is no theft.

You're the victim, not us.

If I do not consent, will they force me? How?

I can leave and walk out the door, to someones house. I cannot do that and get away from the bullies. I can only fight back, when they want to intimidate and bully.

No the other house, that get awards yearly for the yard. Next time you see me at HEB, say hi!


Who is the one willing to use force to make comply, on those people that do not consent?

What a stupid question. So you're basically saying "name a government that hasn't ended." Then when someone eventually names that govt. you'll say "well it hasn't been ended YET." Circular reasoning and quite honestly a huge waste of time of a thread.

Also, if y'all think taxes are theft, that's fine, don't pay them. But then don't use roads, sidewalks, electricity, schools, hospitals, or any taxpayer-funded infrastructure ever again. Leave the country and go find undeveloped wilderness where you will be happy. We'll stay here in our regulated society where things are kept orderly enough for us to make the incredible innovations and inventions that would be impossible under total anarchy.

Where have you been?!?

It is truly amazing how some people can be fixated on certain topics like this one having to do with consent. Sometimes I wonder how much back taxes they must owe! I mean you would think this is all they can think about, some sort of utopian existence in which we can enjoy all the fruits of modern society entirely free of societal dictates, free of any "shackles."

Fact is, there are lots of Americans who don't pay any taxes, always an option for those truly not able to cope with taxation in general. Problem faced by the rest of us, however, is that making money generally involves working with other people, whether as employers or employees or customers or suppliers and as such, to work begins to complicate the equation and makes paying no taxes that helps make all that possible very difficult, a crime in fact...

Something like expecting to get wet if you go swimming, and/or if you don't want to get wet, don't go swimming. How many threads can be devoted to arguing this sort of thing?
