Why I Pay Taxes

If you haven't caught Fox's 24, I highly recommend it.

Yeah, it's Hollywood, but in this Age of Terror, Art imitates Life.

To see the Marines flying in and cleaning up the terrorists, I was reminded once again why I pay taxes, i.e. "to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity."

I don't think it's melodramatic to say that people who put their lives on the line may one day save the lives of my loved ones.
