Libs and lefties need not respond, because we all know what your answer will be.

Do you, or do you not, believe that taxation is theft? If not, why?

For services rendered...no.

For re-distributive purposes to able bodied adults... yes.

So theft can be defined by the purpose intended by the thief?

Technically, taxation is theft, because your property (even it it's time or labor) is being taken by force.

Anybody who believes force isn't involved, refuse to pay your taxes and you'll eventually be met with government force.
