From Brad over at Sadly, No!.
The common wingnut meme about my home state is “ZOMG YOU PAY SO MUCH IN TEH TAXES!!11!!” Well yeah we do. And there’s a reason for that: we like having good public schools, strong public health programs and well-funded police departments. Because as much as paying taxes can suck, it beats the hell out of having your children wind up ignorant, infected with STDs or dead.
Taxes are the price to pay for civilization, my friends. If you really want to go to a country featuring real economic freedom, may I suggest Somalia?
