A good portion of your life goes into making money which becomes a part of the war machine that is responsible for the death of millions. Have you ever considered paying basic taxes, and withholding the rest for a higher cause such as sponsoring orphans or rehabilitating victims of war? A democracy should allow its citizens to make that choice.
I spent 6 years in the U.S on an F1 and H1-B visa. I was pre-taxed, but I didn’t file the last 2 years. In stead I sponsored 7 kids over a period of 3 and half years. I did not get into any trouble; but then, I’m not a U.S citizen and do not live there any more. It seems like a very effective way to dissent.
