It does make sense for everyone else to pay taxes. Besides, they have more.

All theses roads and schools pay for themselves.

Doesn't really seem fair if some people pay taxes and some don't.
Not to steal the thread.....but if it makes you sleep better at night then by all means...go right ahead. I've been paying taxes since I was 12 years old (what other entity than the federal government would take money from a 12 year old making $22 a week? HUH?) for a total of 45 years now and I have yet to collect a penny in return. Nope, I wont lose any sleep for the couple dollars I keep from some foreign czars coffers.

Shall we enumerate the numbers of citizens who receive money while not paying anything into the system?
How about all the non-citizens who receive lots of money and services for nothing?
Then, I'd like to go over the amount of taxes the "truly rich people club" in this country pay in taxes, of which
our leaders are members, and the benefits and services those people receive from our current system.

With regards to our foreign budget, half of THAT money goes to a single country that is illegal
to boycott by the consumer.
Other countries that consider our country "the enemy" also receive lots of money and benefits.

Then, we can get to the people like you who have paid into the system all their life, but like myself,
who have had things like sickness strike them and are denied the benefits of the 15% of their paycheck
taken from them their whole life by the government.

So, sell a few jars of honey and pay the taxes on it but just know in advance that you will be in an elite
group of less than half a dozen people in the country doing so out of almost 400 million.

In my dealings with the system and government I have been on the bad side of justice and wronged so often that
to balance the scales of justice I'd have to start outright throat slitting a few people
a day to even start tipping scales of justice in the direction of "fairness".

Just a note on hobbies and taxes. Losses one year in a hobby can be applied to another year where your hobby may actually present a profit that would otherwise be taxable, even though it is from a hobby. Consult a tax professional for more information.

If you make enough honey to sell, sell it to individuals for CASH, put it in your pocket and keep your tater trap shut.
The less you involve the Government in anything, the better you'll be in the long run.

I agree 100%
