Steve's Beatles Page - Songs - Taxman
Today's an appropriate to highlight this song. One of the best conservative peices of pop music ever "Taxman" was created by the well-known group of right-wing radicals, the Beatles.
yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me
These are the final lines of the song, and they sum up the problem with taxes very well. That period of our work day that we work for the government we are essentially slaves, being forced to work for someone without pay. The rest of the day is covered by our employment contract, freely entered into by ourselves and our employers. But those hours that covcer our taxes, the government steps in and tells us to give that money over to them.

That's one big moral reason why taxes should be kept to a minimum: it's a violation of freedom.
