You didn't finish watching the video or you you don't hear what they are saying at the end. You have yet to show me where the huge illegal weapons cashe is or was. Just how many people "out west" do you think are involved in such groups? tens of thousands? millions? Thousands? Your fear of these supposed groups is irrational. What isn't irrational is knowing that I am forced to give 40% of my wages to a government that spends the money on things that are of no benefit to myself or the nation at large.
Since I work for a living and I assume you do too, it will be hard for me to hold your hand and lead you to the arms cashe that was found. The last time I heard of any significant arms was about ten years ago. When I get time to do some looking I am sure I an find an old report, but then that report will probably be considered propaganda or planted weapons.
I have no idea how many folks "out west" are involved in this sort of thing, but it isn't only out west. There are groups involved in this sort of thing all over the country in small pockets. Unfortunately there is also a huge group of criminals that also have plenty of illegal weapons. I saw a few months ago the Russian mafia is growing in Europe and the US. I never spoke of any fear of these groups either, and I do not stay awake at night worrying about them. As far as your taxable income, I am glad you make enough to be taxed at a 40% rate. I hope once the economy turns around I will be right there with you. This is not irrational to pay these taxes. I think we must pay taxes as citizens of a country so we can have a rock solid military, great roads, spectacular parks cared for by our government employees, fire fighters willing to put their asses on the line and all the other trappings that come with civilization. If you do not like civilization, consider moving to a place where there is no real civilization like Afghanistan. The taxes there are very low. I think the lack of a civilized world will make it hard to prosper however, unless you are a war lord. . That seems to be a growing industry around the world. That great living you make is a direct result of all these taxes you pay so we do not have anarchy.
Nice quote from Jefferson. Seems to me it is obvious our government isn't that big yet, and I am for smaller, more efficient government by the way.
