“Government is not an à la carte system where you can pick and choose based on your beliefs. Taxation is more of an all-you-can-eat salad bar. You don’t get to show up and say, ‘Look, I know it costs $10.99, but I’m only paying $7.50 because I have a moral objection to beets.
Everyone has their own version of beets. If you really want to be treated like a person, corporations, then guess what? Paying for things you don’t like is what it feels like to be one.”
In fact, since 9/11, under just one program, police have taken $2.5 billion in the course of over 61,000 seizures of cash alone from people people who-and this is the mind blowing part-were not charged with a crime.
