    This is probably quite true. I'd pay because being self-employed leaves you with an irrational fear of an audit. You think "I know this is deductible, but what if I'm wrong?". I'd figure under $100 is so much better than it could be, you know?

    Now that we are both employed by outside agencies, I'd ask more questions.

        It should be noted that this is an incomplete quote.

        What Reagan said before these words was, "Back then, government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases..."

        In other words, the above quote seems to attribute the view to Reagan when, actually, he was attributing that view to his predecessors.

          Congress can raise taxes because it can persuade a sizable fraction of the populace that somebody else will pay.

                Taxation is the price we pay for failing to build a civilized society. The higher the tax level, the greater the failure. A centrally planned totalitarian state represents a complete defeat for the civilized world, while a totally voluntary society represents its ultimate success.
