Are there any things that Americans feel they are forced to do in order to live in The United States?

    Pay taxes on property you own free and clear and it is not really yours unless you pay your yearly taxes!

    ___

    I agree with this entirely older! Apparently you never actually "own" land it's always on rent/lease; since even long after you've paid your original purchase price and interest if you don't make a few 'property tax' payments whoops there goes land that has been yours for generations; etc...sorry that's insane. Figure another way to structure the tax system to support schools; police; fire; roads; etc...but leave people's property out of it.

  • I feel forced to pay taxes that help lazy people ( I dont mind paying taxes for roads, schools, police and fire but i dont want to feed families except my own)

    I feel forced to have a leader who I think is reckless and spends ridiculous amounts of money.

  • Not sure what you mean but there are many laws we have to follow. Some may not like them such as the seatbelt law or kids in car seats. We have to have drivers licenses to drive but thats a good thing. There are oodles of things that we cannot lawfully do but I don't know of many things we are forced to do. Most of these things are not mandatory, only done if you participate in the activity. Like having insurance if you drive a car. I assume they do these things in alot of other places too though.

  • Pay your fair share of taxes....small price to pay for being a USA citizen,I think.
