Oh, please. He's making a distinction between a government withholding all owed taxes and people filing and paying after they have received their income. Semantics.

Nothing is voluntary when if you don't pay, they either take you to jail, take away your home and property, and garnish your wage.... with those kind of threats, its NOT voluntary and its not semantics either...

There actually is no law saying that you must pay income taxes or face X penalty. But the IRS has too much power to test that fact.

The nation has lost tax revenue because of job outsourcing. The government has just developed more taxes to make up for those losses. I make a monies bet that the federal tax on gas will grow percentage wise. The are going to squeeze every last penny out of us soon to make up for the nonsense bailout packages they made to the banks and other financial institutions.

Unless you're Timothy Geigner, then taxes are voluntary. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi should be thrown in a wood chipper. For the "people" my a$$. Rape and rob is their motto.
