While essentially a social libertarian, I wouldn't have a big
problem with paying taxes if they were fair and equitable.
I think a flat tax of say 10% sounds good, but that means everyone
pays 10% and I do mean everyone who works. You could "allow" good
citizens to pay extra for specific programs, like say I decided the
space program gets an extra 1% and maybe defense.
I think it's a serious social problem that many citizens quite
literally have nothing "invested" in this country.
