I believe that taxes are necessary to run government, and that as citizens we have agreed that government is necessary. However, the amount of taxation (due to the large extent to which government has grown) is, with its cause, not as agreeable. However, through the use of elected representatives, dissatisfied constituents can make their desire for smaller government and lower taxes known, and have their opinions voted in the lawmaking process. Of course the system is flawed (change only happens slowly), but the only alternative would be violent revolt, and that is in my opinion obviously not the better choice.
