The only tax not voluntary is Obamacare (the mandate that goes with it). Every other tax requires you to do something before being taxed. You aren't taxed if you don't work (income tax); you aren't taxed if you don't buy something (sales tax); you aren't taxed if you don't drive (gas tax). I don't pretend like taxes are evil; they are necessary for a government to function. I have the same philosophy on taxes as our founding fathers did. If it was good enough for them it's good enough for me.
