Comment: As much or as little as I *consent* to.

As much or as little as I *consent* to.

Which means that it isn't a tax but a voluntarily contribution.

Taxation=theft. It is taken WITHOUT consent.

If two parties get together:

* Gift - One consents to give money to the other .
* Trade - They consent to exchange money for goods/services.
* Theft - One demands under threat of force.

I will be glad when people stop asking "how much" and start asking "why do we allow it".

The government may also charge for a service which I "voluntarily" make use of (example: post office since FedEx/UPS exist).

An example of something that ISN'T voluntary would also be the post office, prior to having competition, since the government enforced a monopoly on delivery services through "law".
