Taxation IS Representation


The way I see it, taxes aren't the problem, it's the irrationality of the " let's do everything we can to avoid our fair share" mentality that's wreacking havoc on our society. People don't mind going shopping for the things they need and want - the malls are filled to capacity even during this recession - but they hate to put a penny into the community pot. 

People don't seem to realize that paying taxes is how we shop for civilization.

We're not going to put together a rational tax policy in these United States until we acknowledge that taxes are good for our country, good for our society, and good for all of us - but only as long as we all participate (that's right, I'm looking at you GE) and pay our fair share.
