At least the wealth confiscated from me under threat of deadly force is going to good uses. I am particularly proud to be an invountary contributer to the art of basketweaving. I can't bare to think of what kind of world we would have if this important art were not subsidized by my hard-earned money. Fortunately, we have the government to save society from selfish people like me who, if given a choice, would keep our money rather than support such worthy causes.
