The internet was created by government research funded by "stealing" taxpayer money. The thing, even the hypocrites in this thread truly believe that was a fair trade. The internet is so powerful (and profitable) that its value far surpasses the additional tax burden needed to create it. Even hypocrites would never have funded the internet cannot prevent themselves from using it, even for trivial things like the entertainment this site provides.
Its hard to moralize about how evil taxes are while you stuff your greedy face with the ill-gotten gains from that act of "aggression".
The sole reason the U.S. is wealthy today is because the taxpayers of the past paid for highways, railroads, research projects and a million other things that drive the American economy. You've lived off the fat of other peoples labor your whole life, now you want to screw the next generation out of the benefits you got for yourself.
