Well taxes pay for stuff. I know you'd like to go it alone, but until you can pave your own streets you're stuck paying for them, and have to face the reality of why taxes are necessary.

No one is saying that taxes aren't necessary.
Not sure why I bother with a signature as it seems to just randomly disappear on a regular basis. Especially if it offends liberal snowflakes.

Ah, so taxes are necessary.

So what we are really arguing about there is how much? And for whom?

taxes are taxes. its just you have the fraser institute, ezra and right wingers who think their way of raising and spending taxes is the only way to do things. the left wing doesnt do anything wrong. they spend with the mandate they are given and thats fine. if and when the right wingers get back in with election changes and the reinvention/uniting the right they can push all the cut taxes leaving a hole in coffers and austerity in ottawa all they want. then we can watch them say recessions are not their fault either. the UK is screwed. you have a left wing leader who is too left wing for the blairite sellouts trying to get rid of their leader who has support of membership and who was brought in to make the party distinctive from the crooks on the other side. then you have a leader who was barely tolerated before the referendum who is booed at wimbledon and who will go down in history as one of the worst PMs in UK history. its nice to see the last gasps of democracy as we knew it for a few hundred years. its become so befuddled and corrupted that it will be interesting to see how long it is before we are all in the same boat as greece. do this and dont do that and who cares what the people voted for.

"...the problem with government is the same problem with fat people...when you are an obese person it is harder to lose weight than to give up heroin or cigarettes - why? - because you have to eat. When you give up cigarettes you just stop - but you HAVE to eat. The same thing is true of Government - we need some government, some regulations to keep our meat healthy, but we don't need them screaming that the sky is gonna fall if we drive our cars around.

Government is a great big fat man who just can't stop eating and BREXIT is a little bit of a forced diet...a little bit of STOP!!...STOP SHOVING THE CAKE OF POWER INTO YOUR FAT FACE !, or as the British would put it "SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE!".

And we love it - Thank you Britain!
