Social contract? You have a copy of that?
In the United States 2012, every dime of federal taxes goes to social welfare spending. Not infrastructure. Not Constitutional governmental duties. Not "common good". Straight up welfare. Wealth redistribution.
Now, ask yourself what the government does if you don't pay taxes. Explain to me how it is any less armed robbery than doing it in person.
