You almost act like my money is property of the state to begin with...it is not. I earned it, it is mine...and I am expected to follow the tax code to pay what I owe. No more, no less.
Where does the money come from if not the State? Even Jesus said, "give unto Caesar what is Caesar's"; he didn't say, "whoa, that's your money, not Caesar's".
And on the seventh day, He exited from append mode.
