This image was floating around Facebook, and it has made me re-think that stance:
My taxes are there for something - they're there to pay for the people to do the stuff that keeps our system moving. However flawed the system is, you gotta give it some credit - the system is there. That's a monumental achievement. I'm not saying that the system doesn't need change, it totally does, but while affecting that change, we need to acknowledge the accomplishments of others that have gone before, even if they're flawed. We're seriously standing on the shoulders of giants over here.
