I'm not against taxes. I am, however, for the fairest disbursement of the tax burden over the population and more importantly, the prudent use of this investment by government.
It was once said, "Government has nothing but what it must first take away from its citizens." As long as taxes are used in a prudent and efficient manner, one must not necessarily view them as having been taken. It is when we see government wasting that money through the re-distribution of wealth that it becomes a moral issue.
The founding fathers wisely understood that a public treasury must exist in order to ensure a sound infrastructure making the natural commerce of a free market more efficient. Beyond securing the national defense and providing for certain acknowledged infrastructure needs, the government has no further enumerated duties. All other spending necessarily becomes the immoral re-distribution of wealth.
Consider the current immoral structure of property taxes. Why, in a country that supposedly recognizes the sacred right to private property, must we pay rent for the use of our possessions? I have no problem with a onetime sales tax on property which I purchase, be it a vehicle or an acre of land. Beyond that onetime fee, which I consider a fair contribution to the public treasury, why should I pay a recurring charge for the use of something I own?
