“I am amazed that so many fight so hard to keep taxes hidden.”
I’m not. A lot of people get a little break on their income taxes (motor fuels taxes, you name it) and they want to keep their loophole open because *their* loophole is important. This includes many so-called conservatives who vote Republican at every election.
End the pork, unless it’s my pork, and then I need it.
I’ve been a tax consultant for fifteen years and am amazed at the things political “conservatives” can justify to themselves in the realm of tax. I can understand why liberals do it. Most Republicans in my world are as liberal as Democrats.

I used to think as you do.
Now, I am convinced that we are past the point of no return. They only way back is forward until the corrupt behemoth collapses under it's own weight. Taking advantage of any legal federal bennie while starving Washington of as much tax revenue as possible (legally, of course) is a legitimate means to hasten that end.
