People talk of taxes as if it were a confiscation of someone’s property. To some people of the world the concept of “owning” something that you did not make was odd indeed, how could you own land? You didn’t make it; you didn’t trade for it with someone who did make it. Yet today we have people who feel they own huge tracts of the world. Why? Because somebody with a gun will back some words on a piece of paper saying they do (for money). Well I say those words; WE get to write them, that’s democracy, and it has as much right as any words on a piece of paper.
