We were subsequently emancipated, although since the 1960s the cost of no longer being tax slaves means that our entire infrastructure is dying and the debt we leave our children will make them tax slaves.

The only people who will benefit from this irresponsibility is our generation of selfish and irresponsible fuckwits, misled by the American oligarchs who now run one of our political parties (and don't mind at all if our government colludes with the right wing oligarchs running Russia and protected by one Vlad. Putin).
Might want to take another looks at who's whining/sour grapes

Especially regarding the explosion of regulation and cost of compliance

And while you're at it scroll down to avg tax rate for each quintile in the link below.....

If big government progressives hadnt committed future generations to pay for a mess of things that the fed gov should never have been involved in we wouldnt be in this mess......
