    I do not want to Pay for your Crap

     

    It is real freakin simple. It is a principle thing. It is not a Foxnews thing. It is not a Koch thing. It is not a Republican or Tea Party thing. I do not give a crap about any of them. And no, it is not Bush's fault that I have these principles.

     

    I do not want to pay federal taxes so that you can get health insurance.
    I do not want to pay federal taxes so you can pay your morgage.
    I do not want to pay federal taxes so you can get homeowner insurance.
    I do not want to pay federal taxes so that you can buy a car.
    I do not want to pay federal taxes so you can get car insurance.
    I do not want to pay federal taxes so you can have a TV.
    I do not want to pay federal taxes so you can get the internet.
    I do not want to pay federal taxes so you can have a cell phone.
    I do not want to pay federal taxes for your higher education.

     

    I do not want to pay taxes for ANY of your personal crap. I do not benefit an any sort of way by YOU getting ANY of that from me. None of them are your right to have provided to you. So I do not want to pay taxes for it.

     

    It is not that I am a complete asshole. It is because... well you know... in order to be as self reliant as possible I need to pay for my own stuff. If I want health insurance then I need to pay for it. If I want a house then I have to pay for it. If I want a car then I have to pay for it. If I want a TV, internet, cell phone and higher education, then I have to pay for it. And if you want all that stuff then you need to pay for it too. No poor or rich person should have to pay taxes to pay for me or you.

     

    The government is supposed to promote the general welfare, not provide it.

     

    I do want to pay taxes for our common defense from invaders. Federal taxes.
    I do want to pay taxes for law enforcement. Mostly state and local taxes. Some Federal.
    I do want to pay taxes for fire departments. Local taxes.
    I do want to pay taxes for child education, while they are children. State and local taxes.
    I do want to pay taxes for our roads and bridges. Mostly state and local. Some Federal.
    I do want to pay taxes for disaster relief. Federal, state, and local.

     

    Everybody uses and benefits from these things including myself. Every poor and rich person should have to pay for them.

     

    Oh yeah. And I also only want to pay for essential things, including only essential workers.

     

    No I am not brainwashed by Foxnews, Koch, Republicans, Tea Party or Bush or any other stupid thing the Democrat drones of Obama like to say about someone that disagrees with them. I just do not want anyone, rich or poor, to pay Federal taxes for my personal shit. They should not have to. And I do not want to pay Federal taxes for yours. I should not have to.
