1. And today most of our tax dollars go toward feeding the MIC machine and the profiteers, and also

the trumped up security/surveillance for more $$$$$ for the profiteers.

4. Yes. Post apocalyptic waste land scenes are not that hard to find....

As a matter of fact, they are becoming hard to avoid.

6. no taxation without representation

I have always defended paying taxes because it pays for our social safety nets, our schools, our roads, our police and firefighters. But if all our taxes are going to go for is cutting services to the people and giving money to the rich then maybe I shouldn't be so supportive of paying taxes. Either give us our services, give us our representation or stop taking our money.
