Taxation is Theft!
- Taxation redistributes wealth from its rightful creators or owners to those who have no prior claim. This is institutionalized theft, not to mention an egregious transgression of Rule of Law and a disincentive to wealth creation.
- Taxation is the least efficient form of resource allocation because it dictates a one-size-fits-all, centralized approach which cannot accurately assign, let alone predict, supply, demand, or elasticity of same for each individual transaction. By contrast, the distributed nature of free economic exchange guarantees an optimized net outcome.
- Taxation grants the tax-consuming government discretionary spending which doesn't even pretend to be in the economic interests of taxpayers; consider the $1 million price tag on a single Tomahawk cruise missile for evidence of this.
