The Anti-Candidate's Position on TAXES
The government needs some amount of money to do what a government is supposed to do: i.e., to do things the citizenry can't do for themselves. Taxes, therefore, are a necessary evil.
We appreciated the tax cuts and tax credits enacted in the last few years, but we recognize that some minimum level of taxation is needed and therefore tax cuts can't continue indefinitely. (We are reminded of a remark Jim Belasco made many years ago, that "[You] can never cut your way to success, because the ultimate in cost-cutting is to close the place down.") So we are not against paying our fair share, but of course we complain about it and would like it if our fair share were less than it is.
