taxes and moralitySubmitted by twelve on Wed, 01/28/2009 - 02:35
if i pay some one to break the law, i can go to jail for aiding and abetting a criminal. if i dont pay the government to break the law, i go to jail! that is my anti-tax arguement.
im not going to pay ANY criminal, in any way that i am aware of.
that puts my conscience at ease. i have heard many arguements for not paying taxes, but in the end, i came up with this to justify it in my mind the best(though, im sure someone has had the same idea).
paying taxes is immoral. its like paying the mob. but at the same time, i cant condemn in the smallest sense those whom pay. we have one life, and we should do what we can to make it a worthwhile life to ourselves. some people are willing to pay the mob to live a long life. me, i say live free or die! of course, im pretty stubborn.
