atlantasouthguy saidI think it's amazing at how much and how many different types of taxes we pay in this country but what beats it all is no one really knows where this money is going. Should this country truly be in the state that we're in since there is so much taxes being paid? I know there are all sorts of ways they claim the money is being spent and most state that it's invested within the cities/states that we live in toward improvement projects but I can never see any major improvements and all I ever hear is various cities are low on funding and are conducting major various cutbacks (e.g. jobs, state programs, etc). I just don't see the point in paying all of these taxes if I can't really see it improving things. I view it as a huge ponzi scheme.
