    I'm sorry guys, false alarm apparently. My bad. I thought I had been attacked but it was just me paying taxes to some criminal organization called the IRS. I even called them about it and they were very nice. They said they'd do whatever they can to make the process as painless as possible.

    I guess they screw people all the time and I am just very sore. :confused:

    Don't you think its worth it? I'd rather keep my tax money too, but on the other hand, I'm living pretty good. People in other countries don't always get to live like we do. As a matter of fact, people in THIS country (USA) are not living as good as I am. If you are one of those people, then I'm all in favor of tax relief for you. But if you look around and are living pretty good, I think you should be thankful. We're playing with our expensive cameras, not scraping pennies to feed our children, right?

    Just my opinion and not meant to be offensive or directed at anyone in particular.

    OK, my preaching is over, please don't slap me.

    The issue I have is how our government chooses to spend (or pocket) it.

    Ok... my preaching is over.

    If you don't like the IRS you could protest vote for Ron Paul.

    I saw a film called "Freedom to Fascism" by the late Aaron Russo and it stated that every bit of our income tax goes to paying the interest of the loans the federal government borrows from the Federal Reserve. Perhaps occupying other countries is really expensive.

    Problem is; if the income tax was abolished and sales tax went up, the poor would get more poor and more screwed because they would have to pay such a high percentage of their income on the essentials' taxes. If the government was non-interventionist, (both foreign and domestic) maybe they could be supported on the current sales tax alone.

    Also in that video, they say there is no law that requires you to pay an income tax.

    Sure wish I were paying the IRS because that would mean I had money coming in rather than living off my savings.

    Think of IRS tax as rent for living in the US. Check the tax rate of European countries, generally double the US rate plus sales taxes 12-20%, plus wealth taxes and property taxes and and and oh-yes gas taxes of 50%. Total euro tax is estimated as above 80% which.

    you can have my soap box
