Didn't you know? Paying taxes is voluntary, no one is forcing you to pay taxes every year. It's a patriotic duty that is voluntary, nothing mandatory about it. Not EVERYONE goes to jail if you don't pay taxes, so it's voluntary.
With mindsets like this, no wonder politicians think paying taxes is patriotic and no wonder they think raising taxes is perfectly OK. Are we a socialist nation yet? Is government too big yet? Where is the line the divides our government from totalitarianism?
