It is oft quoted: ‘No taxation without representation’
Yet few people seem to feel that the opposite ought also to be true. Why is it that we so blindly concede representation without taxation? Why should those on the government payroll, being payed entirely from stolen tax money, have representation in government? Why should those on welfare who pay no taxes have representation in government?
Representation without taxation is like this. Imagine this scenario:
There’s a shareholder meeting and some guy who has no shares whatsoever in the company randomly shows up, takes a seat and demands the right to vote on the next big business decision. What on god’a green earth is he doing there?
