NO!


As my grandmother always told me: "paying taxes is not a sin, it means that you made money!"



We have to pay for safety and infrastructure somehow

Damn... I guess Somalia is out then. Surely with as much thought as you have given this you already have your "bug out" spot picked out.

Why do “we” have to pay for anything?

I thought conservatives were supposed to be all about the free market?

Taxation is theft. Just because you agree with the theft doesn't make it not theft.

The real question is, is theft always wrong? Everyone is in favor of theft that benefits them.

Conservatives believe a little bit of theft to pay for an Army and police is basically necessary for any of us to have security. Without an Army we would be conquered, enslaved, killed, impoverished, etc. So forcing everyone to support the Army, the police, fireman, etc, which provide us security, is justified.

Liberals also believe in theft in the name of security.

Do you, or do you not, believe that taxation is theft? If not, why?
up to a point taxes are necessary.


the theft occurs when the tax money is squandered and lost through inefficiency by the government. Every tax should come with an expiration date.

Why are they necessary? How is any theft justified?

Apparently conservatives don't trust the free market as much as they think they do.

Theft occurs when you take something from someone without their permission. Even a five-year old knows that.

It's basic kindergarten.

Don't hurt people and don't take their stuff.
