I keep seeing folks complaining about ‘their money’ being used to fund programs they dislike, and you know what?
Go fuck yourself.
You get value for your tax dollars through roads, bridges, and infrastructure that the state builds and maintains for you. 9-1-1 answers your phone calls. If your house catches on fire, the fire department doesn’t send you a bill when you call them to save your home, possessions, or your little ones. The military sets up fancy bases and ships to keep your cities and businesses safe. Should you suffer a catastrophic injury or get laid off, you can get SNAP, WIC, unemployment, or disability.
For a life free of these benefits, and their associated tax burden, we welcome you to move to that tax free African paradise, Somalia. And, for added benefit to you so-called conservatives, they don’t have a central government!
