I agree with Brenda on this one.
I am former Military but did not finish the 20 yrs to get retirement, personal reasons and I do have honorable discharge so that is fine. I live outside the US and DON'T work for the government or a US company and they still want to tax me on any income I make over 90K (that is the current level when dealing with the UK and some EU countries when you take all the parts together). That I don't agree with as the US is the only country to do this that I know of and I know for sure is the only member of the G20 to do so. I believe the phrase taxation without..... . Heck Italy does not tax outside of Italy and gives representation to Italians living abroad in the Italian government.
When in the US I gladly pay my taxes and when outside I will pay when I owe, but I promise you that I use every legal means (lying leaves internal stains that I don't like) to pay as little as possible. Reason? the state department does a very good job of not helping US citizens abroad and every time we come to visit family we get treated to a system that is fascist (sorry but go look at history the "security systems" current in place in the US are carbon copies of the border systems the Nazi's had in place in Germany before they started rounding up the Jews.
Personally, pay the taxes you legally owe, Vote from an informed position (don't trust the parties and definitely not the media), stay informed and be willing to protest when the government goes outside it's mandate, and lastly never ever trust a corporation to do what is really in the best interests of the public.
Just my two cents worth.
What you see in the Universe, sees you.
