    My primary complaint is with real estate-type property taxes- land and home ownership. To me, the taxation should occur only upon exchange in the marketplace, or iow, when I buy or sell property, and not yearly, when the penalty for non-payment of those taxes is possession of your property by the state. With a car, I'm a little more lenient with my tolerance of those taxes, because I use my car on public roads and highways, and I need to maintain it in a condition which is not a public safety issue.

    Since real estate and personal property taxes are levied by individual states, that would not be our decision to make. It would be up to the people of the state contemplating such elimination.

    It should also be noted for our liberal friends that in many states you must renew your registration on your car every year and this can run easily up in the hundreds of dollars. Obviously, this can make it challenging for the poorer among us to pay such fees. Considering that they are supporters of the progressive tax system and enjoy the argument that the poor can not pay higher taxes when arguing for such a system it would make sense then to believe they would not be in support of this kind of tax.
    I not only have an issue with the fundamental concept of paying the government for the right to own property, but it also comes down to double or triple taxation. When I make money, a large portion of that is taken away by the government. I then take what is remaining and try to buy something to sustain my family, at which point the government taxes me again for using said money. A lot of people try to point out that income tax is only 30% or however much, but when you add up the total taxes given to the government through income and purchases, the realized rate is actually much higher.
