Are Taxes too High? Only if you're paying them.

About half of Americans don't pay any Federal Taxes (that is, all their tax money paid in during the year is returned to them, sometimes with extra on top). About half of Americans feel taxes are too high.

It seems likely there's an obvious correlation there. If you pay taxes, you feel they're too high. If you don't, you feel they're fine. That's a situation that will eventually sink a republic as those who take begin to outnumber those who pay.

As addressed in previous posts, we need a simpler system, the fair tax or the flat tax. Everybody must participate and have an interest in the system, or the system will fail.
