Taxation is theft. Pure and simple.
While you work yourself to death to provide for yourself and your family, the United States government—an armed monopoly of thieves, thugs, and brigands lays claim to 3-5 months of your hard earned money.
To make matters worse, they then take a portion of everything you buy as taxes, they collect taxes every year on property you purportedly ‘own’, they collect taxes off the gain from your investments…
And then what do they do?
Roads, courts, and a standing military are the only things the state should be spending money on—if the state is to exist at all. These things require roughly 25% of the federal budget every year, and roughly 1/3rd of your state’s annual budget.
If we really tried we could get those numbers down to 1/10th of the present cost.
Keep this in mind when thinking about the $14 billion the political parasites in the United States government just handed over to Ukraine—a country accused of housing U.S. bioweapon facilities:
$14 Billion to protect the border of Ukraine
But Republican refused to pass $4B for Trump’s wall to protect the border of America because it was “too expensive”
Call your GOP rep now and ask why they care more about Ukrainians than you and your childrenpic.twitter.com/7fTD9AA8vu

CNBC reports this quote from Nancy Pelosi:
“We must proceed with the omnibus today, which includes emergency funding for Ukraine and urgent funding to meet the needs of America’s families,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., wrote to House Democrats.
“It is heartbreaking to remove the COVID funding, and we must continue to fight for urgently needed COVID assistance, but unfortunately that will not be included in this bill.”
Republicans just agreed to spend $14 Billion to defend Ukraine’s border. They refused $4 Billion to defend ours.

The next $14 billion on its way to Ukraine will be scrupulously monitored to ensure compliance with the highest standards of fiscal responsibility. All weaponry dispersed will be closely catalogued and tracked to ensure it does not fall into the wrong hands. Also, goo goo gah gah
