Comment: Involuntary Taxation IS Theft

(See in situ)

Involuntary Taxation IS Theft

Theft is where you take something that belongs to someone else, against their will.

Fees are another thing. You can add a fee to a gallon of gas to pay for roads, and if the person doesn't want to pay it, they can not buy the gas. They'll be paying in the form of added costs to the trucker that delivers their groceries, of course, but voluntarily.

It's a slippery slope to think that we (those in power) can force some individuals to hand over the fruits of their labor against their will. It's a form of slavery.

The government is ripping me off to bomb people all over the place, and I know that's immoral.

What do you think?
