you dont have to pay taxes- you are obliged to. You could just as easily chose not to- just as any brother could chose not to use or sell drugs- they still do as they are also OBLIGED.

the saying is- if you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem. Funny how when you're sure you're not part of the problem this statement is fine but when you're in the wrong we start talking about ranking.
