If you tried a poll tax etc, poor and middle class people would be the ones hurt most. What do you do to them if they can't pay? Extra work to pay back the state? Wouldn't you call that slavery as well?
You have to learn to work within or change the system we have legally or it's a dead issue.
Just like I feel now because of the sleeping pills.
So if you can't make any sense of it, just let me know and I will try to be around in the moooooorning to do your wife after you leave for work. Or at least gargle with mouthwash!
OK good Night.

B) Once again this is a begging the question logical fallacy because you are pre-supposing that the state has legitimate claim to control over this territory in which I own property:
C) Self ownership means that one has exclusive rights to their own body and any goods, services, or capital produced by that body, if you are stating that the government has the right to infringe upon the right of self ownership then you are tacitly admitting that the state rather than the individual is the owner of the individual's body, the state is therefor the owner and I the property. How is that not slavery?"I think that the person who makes this argument is already assuming that the government has some legitimate jurisdiction over this territory. And then they say, well, now, anyone who is in the territory is therefore agreeing to the prevailing rules. But they’re assuming the very thing they're trying to prove – namely that this jurisdiction over the territory is legitimate. If it's not, then the government is just one more group of people living in this broad general geographical territory. But I've got my property, and exactly what their arrangements are I don't know, but here I am in my property and they don't own it – at least they haven't given me any argument that they do – and so, the fact that I am living in "this country" means I am living in a certain geographical region that they have certain pretensions over – but the question is whether those pretensions are legitimate. You can’t assume it as a means to proving it." -- Roderick Long Libertarian Anarchism: Responses to Ten Objection
B.) The government of the USA has control over the lands of the USA. If you live within those lands the government has control over then you are subjected to pay taxes. Just like if you live in a specific state you have to pay the state's taxes. People from Georgia don't pay Texas taxes, but they are obligated to pay Georgian taxes.
C.) This is a flawed argument, because it assumes that the state has control over the people. It doesn't, the state can't tell me what job to do, when I can go to bed, when I have to work, if I have to work, how long I have to stay here, stop me from leaving. The state can't do any of that, well unless I broke a law, and I wouldn't think you are advocating the abolishment of laws now are you? So what if I went driving drunk, what makes the government think it has the right to take away my freedom by putting me in jail!!!
Taxes are a necessity of life, you need to deal with that. Or you could boycott taxes, and everything the government does with them. Just remember to not use any road, unless you make it yourself. Oh and just turn in that drivers license you have, because it's was made using tax dollars. Oh, and quite your job, because your being "forced" to give up some of your paycheck to the government, and there's no way to get around that besides quitting your job. And just take your kids out of public school, no need for them to benefit because of evil taxes. I could go on, but I think you get my point.
and secondly, proof that those who pay the most taxes actually receive the most government spending or benefits proportionate to their taxes
I prefer a system where everyone pays the same rate. The most productive tax payers would still pay far more than you but at least if their rates were voted up so would the rates of all of the voters so it would be a disincentive to keep spending and spending and spending
a sales tax would do the same thing
what is awful is a situation where people like you keep voting to jack up the top rates of those of us who pay most of the taxes because it is unfair to us and you have no incentive to stop government growth when you suffer no downside and you are promised more and more goodies paid for by others
