5. pure ideology I think
they just have miscontrued their principles so much over the years that they oppose any tax, even a rational one. They reject the concept of a fair tax system as part of their ideology, it freaks them out that wealthy people may have to pay a higher percentage and take a higher burden than someone who is middle class or poor. After a while political aspects, such as a permanent majority etc, have hyped up the idea of "low taxes" so much that for political reasons they knee jerk at the slightest hint of a tax increase, no matter what it is. They are pretty delusional about it too.
