It's late so I can't reply at length, but nobody can drop out now, I'll personally toss their posteriors in jail if they try, along with my jackbooted friends the IRS. I claim all tax monies to the Feds go into exactly 1 bucket the same as all my income at home does, except for the trivial 401(k) match I can't get at. The fact is I have found my total percentage tax burden did not change from 1974 when I was making about $38,000 of today's dollars until 1994 when I was making about $60,000.

I haven't read your article tonight, I'll do that tomorrow, but I will anticipate that a lot of the complainers will be as greedy as the AARP.

We are probably not disagreeing, the problem is likely historical lies about accounting that were told to the ignorant so as to make constant taxation politically palatable.
