I think most taxpayers are paying their fair share. But not all of them. And the money that comes from taxes is being misspent by the "defense" budget instead of being returned back to the taxpayers in a beneficial budget that works for the people (citizens).
We don't need to be 50 times more powerful militarily than any other country on earth. We've proved that we are the best military in the world. We already have the biggest military budget. We could obliterate the middle eastern countries 5 times over already.
We need to spend our taxes on US! Build infrastructure, build the best standard of living, get rid of American poverty. Educate our citizens. become the greatest country on Earth!
Actually, we already are the greatest country on Earth, but we can do better!
