    Let's put this one to bed. TAXES.

    Quite simple. Many here seem to think that objections to high taxes or expressing a desire to see lower taxes means that a person thinks there should be NO taxes.

    Let's find out who, if indeed anyone, actually thinks there should be NO taxes.

    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    What about taxes for things that you do not directly use?

    Ie interstate freeways in other states, the military etc
    Conservatives believe that the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will ensure it is

    gasoline taxes are what funds highways these days

    the problem is too many people have representation with out taxation

    we need to get rid of the system that allows the many to increase tax rates on the minority that already pays most of the taxes.

    that is the most pernicious problem currently when it comes to taxes.

    What, that many people here seem to think that? Mostly because they've expressed such thoughts on numerous occasions.

    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.

    Re: Let's put this one to bed. TAXES.

    So there are posts with people saying 'I want lower taxes' without bitching about some demonic marxist megastate and the droves of indigent poor leeching off of their fortunes and people go mad screaming 'anarchist' at completely reasonable arguments for lower taxes?

    That would of course be in your opinion

    It is your opinion that people not paying in taxes for all the services they get from the government is the problem regarding taxation in the US, that people can vote to increase spending without having to pay for it. That does not mean it is in fact the most perniciouss problem when it comes to taxes

    I do not think anyone is in favor of no taxes. Highways,schools, police and fire department, prisons to house inmates, military to defend our country and many other things got to be paid for somehow. The issue is how much should someone pay and how those taxes should be collected. I would like to see income taxes abolished and replaced with a national sales tax.
    "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"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
