You are comparing the paying of taxes, to raising children?
You are very confused my friend.
Let me break this down for you. Over 51% of taxes (your money) goes toward war. That's to say, your taxes now go directly toward destroying other countries and their population. Am I saying this because I'm some kind of hippy? Do I care anything for people that I do not know exist? No, I am not! I am saying it because its true! That is where over half your tax money goes, you understand that right?
Just to make this even more clear. The people in power create "laws" that force you to pay taxes, so that if you don't, its likely that unthinking men with guns will come to your house, restrain you and put you in a cage.
In other words, if you do not pay taxes which go directly to killing hundreds of thousands (even millions) of people, you get put in prison.
Do you know how fucked up that is? And you compare that to the cost of raising children?
Yes paying taxes should most definitely be considered *punishment*!
It is this kind of blinkered thinking which is so asinine to a peaceful existance. I am ashamed of you.
