This sub isn’t just about lowering taxes. In the US most of our basic rights and freedoms have been stripped from us in the last 15 years.
Do we want less taxes? Of course. I cant stand that politicians lie to us to get our vote just to keep getting re-elected just so they can make more laws that only WE have to abide by that makes them richer and richer year by year. Thats not all though. Our privacy is almost non existent. We are tracked through our phones, cars, SSNs, drivers licenses, social media accounts, home assistants, tvs, computers, medical history and god knows what else. You cant even get together with a group of friends without the police showing up. Karens often try using the police as their personal thugs to control people they disagree with. I’m a 90s baby I grew up thinking this was a free country, and maybe it was back then, but these days theres a growing trend of “silencing everyone who doesnt agree with me” and banning everything “for your safety”. But life itself is dangerous, people are going to do things you dont agree with, so how many of the things are we going to ban? What happened to live and let live? What happened to agree to disagree? People need liberation and empowerment, not control and welfare.
