Point of discussion for today- is taxation theft?
You see the signs at the tea party rallies, and now and then, even t-shirts or bumper stickers that say it: "Taxation is Theft!" But not all libertarians feel that way.
For some libertarians, taxation is a necessary evil, for others a positive good when exercised correctly, and for others a completely unjustified act of aggression that has no place at all in a civil society.
Where do you stand on the issue and why? Is taxation theft?
