    Yes. While the general population may not agree with the policies of a government, they are living within the boundaries of that government. Living within the boundaries also means living within the laws, whether we like it or not. I guess the thinking is that if enough people don't like the laws, they will work together to change them, but stay within them until an actual legislative change.

    Should I pay a restaurant after eating if I don't like the taste of the food?
    Should I pay for a parking lot when the place I got for parking is not to my liking? Should I ask for a refund of ticket fare if the seat offered to me is not adjacent to the window (which I always love to sit)? Should I stop giving money to my wife for the household expenses if she is not behaving nicely with me?

      False problem, you have the choice not to come back, not to keep the same company... Facing our government's policy what is our alternative since both dominant parties obey to the elite's interests?

    I've been thinking about it for a long time now. I totally DISAGREE with the allocation of our budget. It doesn't serve the people but an oligarchy. My only problem would be the reprisals. Facing jail time.

    Absolutely! Regardless of whether you agree or disagree, your taxes pay for the schools your children go to; the roads you drive on, the police that protect you, the armed forces that defend you, the firemen that save your life. The list goes on and on. Am I willing to give up all those things by not paying tax for the sake of some policies that I don't happen to agree with? Absolutely not!
