Endless fines and levies on the formerly free people of America.
The Government prospers when it can impose fines for criminal or civil acts even if no actual harm is caused by those acts. In their endless quest for revenue, the Government performs countless Intolerable Acts against the Citizens of this Republic on a daily basis.
Let actual harm become a standard for imposition of penalties, or otherwise every human endeavor could be construed and penalized as a crime.
We should not have to pay our taxes to those that would also act to enslave us.
