What I find amusing is the argument:

Taxation is theft when I don't agree with how the taxes get spent.


I find that amusing too, particularly when leftists complain about defense spending.

My position is much simpler: taxation is theft. It's morally and ethically wrong, period, end of discussion. It is pragmatically excusable only when it is evenly and predictably spread, used to prevent even greater theft, and kept to the minimum necessary to that purpose.
