Taxes are the dues we pay to belong to Club USA. The Club provides enormous benefits to its members – safety, prosperity, freedom, security, community. It charges dues on a sliding scale, based on its members’ ability to pay. April 15 is Dues Day.
Some say taxes are theft. I say that taking Club benefits without paying dues is theft.
Some say they would like to starve the Club to death – “to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.” I say that folks who don’t like our Club should join a different one.
I’m tired of paying my Club dues regularly and honestly and listening to freeloaders who shave their taxes run the Club down on talk radio while expecting the Club to bail them out whenever they’re in trouble.
Honest taxpayers are the true silent majority. It’s time for us to speak up.
Freeloaders, pay up or get out.
