82. Like most Limbeciles, you've got it backward

Your problem is not the poor taking some subsistence from the pittance you pay in taxes. Your problem is that your employer doesn't pay you enough for your hard work to feed your family.

Also, the taxes of others pay for the roads you use to get to your slave-like job, the clean water that comes from your tap, the schools you attended (though you seem to have gotten little from them), the FDA that makes sure the medicine you take for your paranoid delusions is safe, and so on. You get back way more than you pay

Finally, believing what you hear on Hate Radio and Fox "News" is a mental illness. If your job affords you health insurance, you should take advantage of it and try to re-initiate contact with reality.
