As another April 15th is upon us, let's all pay tribute to the money that was stolen from us by imagining what we could do with it if we were still in possession of it.

Personally I would use it to finish my basement renovation into a man-cave; instead I had to take out a home improvement loan for it. I could also use it for a nice couple weeks of fishing and camping around Alaska this summer.

What say, C-D posters? What would you do with the money the IRS and your respective states (if applicable) stole from you?

We were planning on installing a water softener and having some concrete work done in the back yard as well as a little get away. Instead I get to write a check for over $16k.

Which could all be handled by private companies.

*Looks at the US-funded genocide in Yemen as a counterpoint.

Id probably start a few unjustified wars overseas and pay the living expenses of a bunch of deadbeat Americans. Maybe give a little more to politicians so they can live lavishly.

Still redefining theft I see.

It is okay. Socialist, communist, marxist, fascist, nazi, fair, justice, privilege and a host of other words have been redefined also.

I'll approach it differently:

Assuming there was no State ergo no theft (taxation) I'd run a little experiment. I'd use that money and offer it to the first statist willing to kill an 8-year-old girl by their own hands. No paying someone to do their dirty work. No UN resolution. No "spheres of influence". If she was truly a threat to you and violated the non-aggression principle then it should be easy to personally kill her.
