Should our government be ashamed of stealing our hard-work/earn money? I'm talking about taxes.

  • I dont believe there is any ability to have shame in our government. They never have cared how much we pay in as long as they can do what they want with the money. If they did things differently we wouldn't have to pay this ungodly amount of taxes and they would get along fine. Most of our money goes to their goodies. You can't imagine how many perks and porks we are paying for.

  • When it goes to buying Senators multi-million dollar jets, bail outs, and hundreds of other useless things theyve used our money on, heck yes, they should be ashamed!!!

  • Haha, well your question assumes that our politicians have the capacity for shame, which I do not think they do... But yes, it's a giant load of B.S.

  • It is a sick reality that the government just wants to live their life on your dollar.

  • My favorite Thomas Jefferson quote:

    "I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."


    Are some taxes needed? yep, but not all the waste that is currently going on.

  • The government is not a good steward of finances, so I personally think that we should all revolt and take it all back.
