"It is said, mostly by Libertarians, that ‘taxation is theft.’ Theft is too mild a word. Typically, a thief strikes only once, and doesn’t pretend that his robbery is legitimate. Taxation is actually slavery." ~ Rick Tompkins
And why do we need such taxation?
"The American Republic will endure, until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money." ~ Alexis de Tocqueville
