I'm gonna do whatever I feel like doing so long as that doesn't harm anyone else. Also, I am entitled to all of that money the gang known as government tries to extort from us every year around April or so.
Why do all americans hate taxes? We in sweden have almost the highest taxes in the world but it pays for our free school lunches. better education, its free for us to go to the doctor so we dont get ruined if we have to have surgery, if we lose our job we dont become homeless we get alittle money from the goverment. Your just cheap and cant think into future.
We don't all hate taxes. It's just that a large percentage of our tax dollars go towards people who do nothing but sit on their ass, shoot out kids, live off social services, live off welfare, never work, and grub off the rest of society. What makes it worse, is that every April, the government rewards those people by giving them more money out of the taxpayer pocket. What makes it even worse then that? The fact that someone like myself, single, no kids, no government assistance, private health care, full time job, and responsible is in the second highest tax bracket in the nation. I use no government programs (other then roads and I'm sure a couple others, but none that I can think of), I am the least burdensome on society, none of my children are burdens or go to public school because I have none...and yet I pay one of the largest percentages of all American citizens.
The only tax group besides single/no children that gets taxed higher? Married with no children.
So going back to Keso's point, and I'm not sure this is exactly it, but sometimes hard working tax payers feel like our government is abusing us and extorting us to pay taxes to support the fuckwads. Because guess what happens if we don't pay taxes? We owe more, or face prison time. Yet Mrs. Can't Keep Her Legs Together and Mr. Fuck and Run can shit out more kids for us to support, they don't have to work and face no penalties for it.
So again, it's not that we hate taxes. I understand that they are needed for a functioning society. I just hate those who sponge off of others. When I say hate, I mean it to. You ever want to know one of my buttons, it's freeloaders.
I really think that if more people paid their share you'd have quite a few results.
1. Less angry tax payers like me because more people are working.
2. Lower taxes because you have more people putting in their fair share.
3. A better understanding of people who need to use government, tax payer funded programs, because we would understand that the person who needed it, really needed it.
So that's why I said originally, I am entitled to not a damn thing. I believe that rights aren't set in stone, they are privileges to be had until you abuse them, then they need to be taken away.
And here's the real kicker to this whole thing. There are freedoms that we have that I don't believe should be freedoms. I believe they should be earned and if abused, taken. I'm not talking free speech and all that jazz. I'm talking about something much more fundamental then that, and if anybody wants to know, PM me.
