As I was moving through the house getting ready to do some house cleaning, I heard a short clip about about a family holed up in their home threatening violence… as a protest to paying taxes for things they don’t support. Now, while it might be considered by some as an admirable stand, I believe if they get away with this, I want the same option. There are lots of things I don’t support but I STILL HAVE TO PAY MY TAXES.
I don’t support the welfare system which takes 20% or better of the federal budget. I don’t want to pay for the $824 billion dollar amnesty program sponsored by Ted Kennedy. I don’t want to pay for socialized medicine, or federally funded abortions, or spinach and peanut farmers, and I especially don’t want to finance Congress’ strategy for creating scandals to “investigate”. They waste my money for political maneuvering which is just plain wrong. And that’s just for starters.
Â Now, if they want to come out with a taxation that allows people to opt out of the things they don’t support, that would be all well and good. However, they’ll never do that because they’d go broke before the first fiscal quarter and they know it.Â
Addendum: I forgot one of my biggest beefs: I don’t want to give to nonprofit organizations that preach anti-Americanism, support terrorist organizations overseas, and try to institute a socialist or communist government in this country. However, they get lumped in with charities I do and will support so I don’t have much choice there, do I?
