But it is taxation with representation, which is all that anyone can really ask for.
You don't get representation. Lobbyists own your representation to craft laws as a means of levying legalisms and taxes on you by proxy. You pay more tax towards corporate welfare than you do to the general welfare proscribed by the constitution. End legalized bribery, and it goes back to the America you thought you had all along. Defend legalized bribery, expect more Mussolini insanity in the future.

I get to vote, I don't like the two party system, but my vote does count. Its my job, as an educated voter, to urge other people who want to be educated voters on the wool thats being pulled over their eyes by R and D's

But it's a federal tax that comes out of your income, correct??
