I'm fed up with the actions of the government for years: endless wars, cutting everything except the military budget, deregulation of Wall Street, rolling back environmental rules, tax breaks for the rich, union busting, privatization, crumbling infrastructure, high taxes, no jobs, foreclosures, add your own.
I'd like to stop paying taxes as a protest, but don't want to go to jail. I'll do this: buy nothing unless it's absolutely necessary: no restaurants, movies, clothes, cars, trips, electronics, furniture, add your own unnecessary items. If millions of people have a buying strike, taxes will plummet. The government will be forced to change for the 99%.
Patronize craigslist, thrift shops, garage sales, barter. Buy nothing where the government gets taxes.
