Paying more taxes to government is like giving heroin to a heroin addict.

Or as P. J. O’Rourke wrote: “Like giving car keys and whiskey to teen age boys.”

Not quite.

If you give a heroin addict enough heroin, they'll eventually OD and then they need no more heroin.

There is no level of taxes which will make a government OD and need no more taxes.
