"Why is that money yours?

And people wonder why socialists aren't trusted. "


I don't know you or your postings at all, but I'm wondering:
Do you like driving on the interstate highway system ?
Do you like the bridges that you cross to be stable and functioning ?
Do you like that you can pretty much ( so far ) trust that your food purchases
are probably safe to eat ?
Do you like clean air, and clean water ?

I can go on and on, but the gist of it is that government costs money, and
requires citizens to pay taxes. I'm not a government can do no wrong,
sign over your entire paycheck to them kind of guy. But I also understand
that living in a civilized society costs money. If you believe otherwise, you
are fooling yourself.
