In some nations that is around 50%. Personally, I think we are getting a screaming deal. Your accountant isn't worth his fee if he can't get you out of at least half of the coming taxes. What are you so wrought about. And stop being paranoid, these policies are not about total control. Wiretaps, supeona's of Search Engine user logs, Patriot Acts, those smack of crowd control. Personally I am not happy that your ancestors dragged my ancestors from their homeland and established them in this land but refused to recognize them as fully human. I live with this daily. I get very little out of America beyond basic shelter and food and still pay my full quota of taxes without complaint. At least you are fully recognized as human. You get all the benefits and then some. Stop complaining. You're going to do irreperable harm to your karma going on this way about nothing. When you really get something to cry about will you remember how upset you were about paying one years worth of porn site dues so life in America could be a wee bit more tolerable for millions of people?

Couldn't have said that better myself!
