Didnt mean to prop gov "taking your money" is such a ridiculous notion. Where do you think our infrastructure comes from?
Thatís not a notion, thatís a factual statement: the government takes money from all individuals who make any money in the form of mandatory tax expenses which you must pay or go to prison. Our public infrastructure is of course paid through taxes. I made no value judgment on the morality of taxes or a*sessed them as a net negative or positive to our society. Iím just saying a lot of people find it easier to give away a certain amount to charities of their choosing than pay that same amount in taxes. Because while your taxes pay for infrastructure, it also pays for unjust wars, an unjust legal system, unnecessarily militarized law enforcement, salaries for corrup politicians that take money from lobbyists to make sure that big corporations stay as profitable as possible regardless if it hurts the average citizen... all while our infrastructure crumbles, the quality of public school education deteriorates, and more Americans get priced out of access to healthcare and housing. Not to mention weíre all paying into a social security fund that weíre supposed to get paid when we retire but will actually be long gone by the time people on this website get ready to retire.

I personally think that taxes are necessary and rates on the highest earners needs to go up... but I also think our money is used wildly ineffectively and inefficiently. Thatís a value judgment. But you have to pay the government money or face imprisonment - government takes your money in the form of taxes, thatís a factual statement.

Yup...the 20's were all time lows on tax rate for the top 1%. Guess what happened after that? The depression...

Guess what we did after that? Raised taxes on them (at one point up to 90%)

Guess what happened? They werent impacted and the economy took off and Americans started banking
