I see many people remarking that taxation is theft. Taxation is most definitely not theft. Taxation is required to make a government run. I see conservatives (People who say, "AMERICA IS THE BEST!!!") saying that taxation is not right. Isn't it ironic that the US is strong BECAUSE they have taxes? If the US had no right to tax, then the government wouldn't survive. It is also hypocritical that they want the military to be strong, but don't want to give funds to the government to do so. Articles of Confederation, anyone?


The income tax is unnecessary, as the government can acquire funds in other ways. Most fiscal programs funded by the government are unnecessary and detrimental to the economy.
