This is a part of an in-line response from my last blog I thought worth sharing:
“How do you have the right to tax me or put me in jail if I refuse to pay taxes?”
Do you like having potable water pumped right into your house? Arsenic, mercury and disease-free? Not having to walk to the nearest river or lake to bathe or get a drink? Having your garbage taken away to a landfill so you don’t live in a garbage can full of plague-infested rats? Having roads to drive on so the suspension doesn’t fall out of your car every 6 weeks? Having cheap public transportation and cheap utilities? Libraries and parks and schools and all of the wonders that come with the average man being able to read and do math as a consequence of those schools?
I do too. And if you skip out on the check when it comes time to pony up the dough for the fucking miracle we call modern civilization, I have zero problem sending you to jail.
