What socialist republic do you live in?

I live in a city with a "public" utility no less, but NONE of the taxes I pay go to water, garbage, or sewage 'services.'

I receive all of those services, and I pay a business for them. (albeit a business owned by the municipality)

If I lived outside of city limits, I'd be paying an entirely private business for those services.

Maybe you live under communism - where government provides everything, but I sure don't.

Perhaps you shouldn't assume everyone does.

And it wouldn't be wise to assume, that theft via taxation, and forced government "services" are the only way to meet those needs.

How shortsighted and patently absurd!
