Do you like war? Because that is where extra money is funnelled to by the government. Do you like more useless beureaucratic red tape? Because that is what the government does when it gets more money than it needs.
By "the government" I guess you mean U.S. government. But this story is about paying taxes to other countries. To every country Google does business in. These countries, by long history, do not spend billions in wars like the U.S. does. They are mostly peaceful and this is also why most of the world hates U.S.
In more civilized countries, the taxes go to infrastructure, healthcare and other things that benefit everyone.
Tax money moved out of the country at 50%
So your solution to taxing is to isolate US from rest of the world? Yeah that will work great in long term. No, in fact it will crash the whole thing really quickly too, as USA depends so much on cheap, mostly Asian countries to produce their goods. Hell, even your freaking post office is now mostly offshored to Bangladesh and Singapore!
