I can see what my problem is after reading this stuff. I have never viewed taxes as a "punishment". They are a necessary evil. I believe we owe our fellow man food, medicine and shelter. I am also a community isolationist when it comes to caring for others in that I believe each town/county can handle this position more efficiently than State or Federal can.
