    Would the local grocer dispatch armed thugs if you did?

    I would not have to pay income taxes if I had no legally reported income (my choice that I work)
    The local employer is sending some people to make you an offer you cant refuse.....now get to work.

    Life is full of choices, paying taxes is one of them
    .....except you have no choice in the matter.

    140 years ago I was black in the US I would not have a choice in working or not, and by god I would be doing it for free.

    I also showed you that paying taxes are a voluntary act, chosen by the choices you freely made. You have plenty of options avaliable to ensure you do not pay taxes. Options where the government will not send jackboots to beat you down. Of course the options may not be very pleasent

    so which of the choices have you made?
    for me, I have chosen to limit use of heat and air conditioning, replaced my regular incandescent lights with CFL and halogens, installed a clothes line on the back porch, and so on. My utility bills are a lot less than most of my neighbors even tho my house is almost twice the size of theirs....

    It was worse than that; the banker brought a Cincinnati Ohio lawyer with a NRA pin in his lapel.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Wait until the American Power Act kicks in. Do you have a wood burner or an old fashioned evaporating cooling unit that works on Wind and Water? How about a bicycle...horse...mule..etc.? A garden? Can you hunt? Fish?

    I find it amusing that this JOKER said PAYING TAXES was a choice...right after he got through bitching about having to pay taxes because he had a taxable income. Paying Taxes is not a CHOICE...even though most progressives believe they are, judging by the TAX CHEATS that Barry Obama has surrounding him, PAYING TAXES are STATE MANDATES enforced by THREATS of fines and or imprisonment. Sure taxes are OK...as long as it is someone else that is paying them, as almost 47% of the US population pays no Federal Income TAX. But, the problem is....as Marget Thatcher said, "Socialism is alright...until you run out of OTHER PEOPLES MONEY."

    CFL and some LEDs. I live in a new very energy efficient condo that is close to work ( 5 miles ) so that I dont have to waste time in traffic or spend a huge amount of money on gas.

    I hate wasting money, and I dont like when the government wastes my money. So I vote to oust the ones that do regardless of ideology. I prefer competence to ideological purity

    Well you did agree to pay it via free choice right?

    140 years ago I was black in the US I would not have a choice in working or not, and by god I would be doing it for free.
    Well 140 years later, the average american works for free from January to April......and the Master still eats first.

    I also showed you that paying taxes are a voluntary act, chosen by the choices you freely made.
    When every choice is taxed......when does the voluntary act begin?

    You have plenty of options avaliable to ensure you do not pay taxes. Options where the government will not send jackboots to beat you down. Of course the options may not be very pleasent
    Harry Reid.....is that you?

    You dont want to pay taxes

    Dont earn a taxable income, sell your homes, buy second hand goods and grow your own food

    You will then not pay any taxes, your quality of life might take a big drop, but you wont pay a single cent in taxes

    Truer words were never spoken.......

    To claim to be Free in a country with a government that imposes its will on the people via brute force.........

    ........is becoming more of a stretch every ensuing day.
