    technically yes, since the services you will receive will be paid for by other people's money, if you accept/use those services, you do.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    like I keep saying. it always seems to be those paying the least that complain someone else is not paying enough.

    like your good comrade sez: from each according to his ability, to each according to his need, right?

    Uhhh yes they do. Some dont pay FIT but everyone pays some sort of tax. A problem is that we also need to simple up our tax code and get rid of a bunch of loopholes.

    the question then becomes...how much does someone really "need"? i would be much more generous towards "the poor" if I didn't routinely see people driving up to walmart in a shiny new car, wearing designer clothes and jewelry, talking on a smart phone and then pay for their groceries with food stamps. the govt robs from the rich to pay for food and shelter for the poor so the poor can spend their paycheck on wants instead of needs.

    The only taxes i pay are sales taxes. I pay no federal taxes other than on stuff like gas. And if you pay $500 and receive $5000 back are you really paying anything? On top of that you get back more in general from your FICA taxes than you put in.
