They are what provide us with civilization. If you are against taxes, you are against
schools, a police department, a fire department, roads, bridges, air traffic control,
inspection of restaurants, and several hundred thousand other things that make life
You can certainly argue about just how high they should be, and what share each of
us should be required to pay, but arguing against taxes on principle makes no sense
All that you need to do is to look at how thieving Wall Street bankers came so close to
ruining the economy of the U.S. and much of the world, just before Bush/Cheney left
office. That was over four years ago, and the deregulation that those two brought in
to please their supporters is still causing massive unemployment around the globe
and destabilizing the economies of entire countries.
If you are against regulations of all kinds, you have to think that most people are not
greedy, most people are quite honest, and most people can be trusted to do the right
thing most of the time.
You don't actually think that way do you? Not when you have seen the way so many
will cheat shamelessly, given the slightest opportunity.
Thoughtful people accept both taxation and regulation as necessities.
I suggest that you spend some time thinking carefully about them too. Right now
your naivete is sticking out pretty far.
