Ok i know i'm gonna take a hit here...but taxes do have a purpose, they help the impoverished, fund schools and roads, and pay our military salaries.  If we didn't pay taxes at all we would be back to dirt roads.  I'm not sure I would like that so much.


I'm with Chelsea Handler...i would just be happy to be in a higher tax bracket :)

I am not against paying taxes -

I am against confiscatory taxes !

I am against those that think that they have a RIGHT to other peoples money and posessions !

    States use to do most of it, then the Feds stuck their noses in further and further and things got really, really, reallllllly bloated.

    You can't predict random.

      That's what lotteries are fore. It's another way that the government get more cash coming in. The IRS agents are no tax angels, but vampires who, oddly, only suck cash.
