I don’t even know that people inherently object to taxes - I think they object to taxes most when they feel they’re getting a bum deal. As a friend put it the other night, he gives a third of his check and in return gets a police state that could kick down his door and bust him for smoking pot at literally any moment. And he doesn’t see much other benefit from his taxes.
He forgot, "Wage unjustified wars of naked aggression, killing thousands of American soldiers and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis."
I'm always happy to see 30% of my paycheck go towards that. Aren't you?
