Property Tax is EVIL

Firstly, I don't agree with the "taxation is theft" meme. Taxation isn't theft unless it's punitive but that's for a different discussion.

Property taxes are completely unjust. they essentially force you to rent your home from your municipal government. They'll take your house and any other property if you cease to be able to pay those bullshit taxes. I would rather pay a higher sales tax than property taxes. Sales tax is semi-optional because you only pay it when you engage in transactions.

Taxation is literally theft.  It's forced appropriation of your hard earned money.  You have no say in how much is taken,  or how it is spent.  Should you try to avoid this theft,  you are jailed.

Ironically,  municipal tax is one I don't mind paying.  I see the results,  every time a garbage truck picks up my trash or I pass a construction crew patching up the roads.  These are things that benefit the society as a whole.

The federal or provincial government pledging money for assorted special interest groups or social justice bullshit does not benefit society.   They are a different matter.

well All i'm saying is i'd rather have a higher municipal sales tax than property taxes.

DAS RITE! I don't mind my taxes going to stuff that benefits the interest of the general public,but i am sure as fuck not funding no abortion, lazy fucks, or LGBTQ faggotry.

I will say that the argument "taxation isn't theft bc services" is mostly bullshit. It's bullshit because the taxes collected are not equal to the services provide. The government introduces inefficiency and the taxes get peeled off. That's not even to mention corruption and misappropriation, which is rampant. I don't think taxation is theft unless it's not a legitimate function, and most of it isn't.
