I propose that we tally up what we should pay in taxes at the end of every year and that we should be able to elect to send the money to the public program(s) of our choice. If our concern is education, then we should send some to the school our kids go to. If the concern is poverty, send some to the soup kitchen or the the rehabilitation center or the job service agency that helps those folks. If our concern is potholes in the streets, send some to the transportation departments, then send the receipts with your tax form to the IRS. That's the only real way to have taxation with full representation.
We don't need the government to be the middleman and suck up all the money on earmarks and porkbarrel spending and fabulous permanent salaries and permanent health insurance for elected officials and oh yeah, WARS. I want to know where my tax money is going and I FOR SURE don't want to pay for any more stupid F*&%$&g wars, or for the US to be the world's 911 hotline, or for any imperialist endeavors. I want taxes to benefit the people of this country and be spent abroad for humanitarian purposes only. No more spending fortunes we don't have destroying other countries to protect corporate profits.
We really need to have taxation ONLY with representation. Our government has ignored the people's wishes for far too long and it has to stop.
ASK NOT what your country can do for you...
ask WHAT THE HELL DID THEY DID WITH OUR MONEY!!!
