If we could choose where our tax dollars go that would be nice. I'd give the EPA all of my tax money. It's the only government agency that does anything worthwhile anymore.

This is actually an interesting idea.

It has a multitude of problems and would be extremely complicated to execute...

...yet, it would be the most democratically possible form of taxation...you choose what government programs to support.

If the government ran a surplus in a certain sector, it could be transferred to another that needed it.

Actually, avoiding this is exactly why we have taxes that we can't direct. Who is going to pay for nuclear waste disposal? Why would the rest of the country want to pay to clean up the Gulf oil spill or Hurricane Katrina? What about the pothole in front of your house? Or if your house is on fire? The whole point is that we often need things that the people who benefit directly can't afford. The promise is, that when you need something, then the government will be there to help you. Btw--I already know I'm a godless, commie, pinko for suggesting transferring wealth is a legitimate role for government. Save yourselves the rants.

Luckily for me, the gov can waste my money on whatever it feels like :D

Too much of a pussy to find employment without having to sign such a contract and now I'm really super mad about it and I'll whine while the state subsidizes my education at a community college. :(

Your contract was activated at birth . This is a clause you are always free to break .

If you don't want to pay taxes, just start a business on the side and take a loss on it until your taxes zero out.
