    Well stealing isnt moral... Taxes are stealing no matter if you think you are doing it for the right reasons.

    NO, that's BS. You have representation. A vote. A representative.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I'm not talking about me, I can die in a fire tomorrow and life for billions will go on. I'm talking about the world. If we keep expanding as we do, fifty to a hundred years from now conditions will be horrendous. Perpetual famine, even more wars over resources (and not just oil anymore), more intrusive government becoming necessary to put more bandaids over deep wounds. It'll happen, because our population will never stop growing.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Thats a fallacy, who do I have representing me? Just cause I vote doesnt mean I have a real say. Voting is just to lure you into the illusion that you have a say. I have no say in where my money goes when taxed, you are not nieve enough to think this? Why cant I choose where my taxes go at least? Instead of funding things I dont believe in.... I am forced by a social contract, FORCED... "but you can just move" BS why do I have to leave my home because I disagree with you? And where would I go? Just because you fall for the illusion doesnt mean I do, the constitution of no authority was written by men long dead, why am I obligated to follow this contract i did not sign!

    The Constitution allows for Congress to levy taxes, which are necessary to sustain our society. The real debate is on what and where those taxes should be spent.

    Why is money needed to sustain society? In what way is this needed?

    If you can't get your head around this simple concept then there is no helping you at all...

    Have fun in your political bizarro universe.
