    Is this including sales taxes, state income taxes,property taxes,vehicle registrations and other forms of taxes?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    IMHO the American electorate will accept whatever the Government they elect chooses to thrust upon them.

    Nope. I think people are somewhat pissed, but most just want to run off at the mouth. Not that many have the resolve to back it up just yet.

    If the nation goes completely bankrupt, then yes.

    No, there is nothing new going on here. The government only become corrupt and our enemy when the GOP isn't in charge. It happens every time. The very same people that were "keeping us safe" last year are now "jack-booted thugs" just because of republican rhytoric. We might as well get used to black helicopters and blue dress inspecter for the next few years. The hounding of a democrat president never ends.

    We pay considerably less in income taxes today than we have throughout most of the 20th century. Our current top tax rate is 35%, compared to being over 50% from '32 to '86. Other than the period between '88 and 92', we have the lowest top tax rate since 1931. The bottom income tax rate is 10%, the lowest since 1941.
    Don't tell this to the tea-baggers. They're convienced that Obama has trippled their taxes, and has ran up 20 trillion dollars of debt.
