    Yep.

    Or, more simply:

    "Taxes should be lower."

    So why do you take that as an argument that you are anarchist rather than an argument that THE INFRASTRUCTURE IS UNSUSTAINABLE AT YOUR PREFERRED TAX RATE AND HAS BEEN ROTTING FOR A DECADE!

    I doubt such ridicule derives from a perception that conservatives/libertarian believe there should be no taxes. Rather, it is a parody of how, in situations where increasing taxes is on the table, conservatives/libertarians almost always take the other side.

    Mostly because that's not what they said.

    No, indeed, there have been many quite earnest statements to the effect that we think there should be NO taxes, and they were not parodies.

    Anyone who's argued for lower taxes can attest to this.

    The implied equivocation has been made multiple times.
    I certainly gets annoying.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Earnestness is pretty subjective over the Internet. It is difficult to know anything about conservatives/libertarians and believe they would affirm a belief in no taxes, and people on this forum know conservatives well enough to be aware that few of them would say, "No taxes whatsoever."

    Anarchy is basically a left-wing philosophy.

    constantly

    the class warfare jihadists constantly claim i don't want to pay any taxes

    in reality I only want to pay my fair share based on what I use and my share of common benefits. In other words, I should pay far less than I do since I don't get any additional de jure benefits for facing a de jure much higher tax bill than most voters
