Paychecks represent our lives, for most of us, 8 or more hours of it a day. The percentage of our paychecks paid in Taxes represents a portion of our lives that we trade for the cost of law and order. We trade a percentage of our lives for this, and gladly.
When the government wants to Tax us more, it is wanting us to trade a bigger percent of our lives, a greater percentage of our existence that we trade in hard work, for the government's ideas, plans, programs, pet projects, paying off political IOUs, etc.
Lately, government doesn't propose, it requires, it compels, it threatens us or through subterfuge ruses us into agreeing to trade a greater and greater percentage of our paycheck, those precious hours of our lives, and in turn will not account for every penny it spends - every penny it spends from every minute of our existence we worked to earn them.
Think about it.
And they want more.
