I didn't call it theft.  I answered the question.

 

How American Pays Taxes: Under the threat of imprisonment.

 

Give everyone the option to pay, and see how it goes.

 

You do have the option not to pay.  Go out into the wilderness and live off the land.

How America pays taxes: Under the threat of imprisonment.  That's the answer.

 

You are quite free to move to another country.  

 

I've never understood this point of view.  I hate taxes as much as the next guy but calling it theft is too hyperbolic for me.

No, it isn't, that's the whole point.  Belief exposure is determined partially by your parents, who, as a general rule, tend not to move terribly far from where they grew up, so there is a false parallel relationship between where you are and what you believe.

 

It is classic correlation without causation.  Grouping of belief systems is more influenced by by the motility of the parent's generation than anything.

 

In times of economic strife, you will find that beliefs tend to co-mingle more as people move to where the food/money is and reproduce.

 

Oh and sorry to be so rough on you personally.  In hindsight I was a doofus.

 

I still think you are totally wrong.

 

So you're just faulting him with automatically applying the transitive property?  Perhaps a bit nitpicky but I agree with you.
