taxes and morality

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.

Taxes are theft

in that if you refuse to pay, you will be hurt by the agents of the government. Our job as freedom fighters is to make this concept crystal clear for as many as possible, and to assure them that it's ok to be afraid of the violent monopoly (gubment), but it is wise to know with whom one is dealing as well, and when the concept has spread far and wide enough, the tax protests that filled the first half of the 20th century will resume, and with the veil of legitimacy removed from the largest Mafia in the world, who knows what could happen? My guess is that with their credibility shot, the end would come swiftly for those who would wield power over others.

though i believe someone else would take up their evil sceptre(human nature).
