Lol, ok. It is cherry picking season.
It's not 1776, and Ben Franklin would be cross with you. No assistance to widows, orphans, the disabled, the out of work? What about a town devastated by a tornado, or a state underwater? Nothing to figure out why white women are dieing at an alarming rate in the rural Midwest? Zika? SARS? Nothing for the study of helping the decimated forest recover in Snoquamish? Nothing for the maintenance of National Parks and National Monuments? No taxes? Come on, man.
You do have an obligation to pay taxes. We have an obligation to turn you in if you don't.
Anarchy is never in the best interests of those who really pay taxes, and anarchists usually need tax money to survive.

3rd Do you know we never had an income tax before 1913? (Except 1861-1872 to pay for the Civil War)
4th Highways are SUPPOSED to be paid by the 47-87 cents/gal FUEL TAXES.
5th Paying a sales tax on a USED item is DOUBLE TAXATION.
6th EXCISE TAX is also double taxation and is nothing more than the government STEALING from you.
7th I assure you I can find MILLIONS of dollars in your state budget wasted on CRAP, fraud and waste. Dont even get me started on money given to free loaders and NON CITIZENS.
I can go on and on here brother because I have spent many years trying to put an end to it esp at the federal level. Sadly far too many people just accept it and do NOTHING about it. Worse, they KNOW nothing about it either.
