    Hahahaha, anybody that chooses red is a fucking idiot. How are those medical bills treating you, dumb-dumb? House burning down? Hope you have Fire Insurance! Can't get to work? Wouldn't it be nice if we had highways? Basically this question is live in a society or live in the ultimate dog-eat-dog, me-first world.

      Looks like you're the ignorant one here. This answer changes depending on where you live. I live in Sweden, so free healthcare for me. And fire insurance isn't too much either, 500 to 1000 can't hurt too much can't it?

      Aram the whole reason you have free healthcare is because you pay for it via taxes. We do the same thing in Canada as well. The taxes are high because a portion of the money is going towards your "free" public services. None of our services are actually free, nothing is free in today's society. If you didn't pay taxes, the government would not have enough money to provide the supplies needed for any procedure or surgery, not to mention they'd still have to be able to pay the government workers who are responsible for funnelling that money.

      idiot....... So how is america doing with medical care?I heard some interesting news once in a while about medical care there.As for Fire Insurance i don't have it either i am not moron who burns his house down leaving candle burning or let it be when there is problems with wires,or let gas open and so on .And do not even start about roads.....so i am now paying taxes for nothing at the moment.Even with health care you have to stand months to get to a doctor and still have to pay for it ,taxes or not .

      My medical bills are treating me rather nicely, now that I can keep all of my money, and the economy is flourishing thanks to the removal of all taxes. I wouldn't want to actually live with ZERO taxes, taxation for infrastructure and criminal justice is necessary, but I would take this over the blue option.

      Healthcare isn't free. Healthcare is paid for by the money given to the government via taxes.

    What's the point of paying taxes if they will eventually benefit you later? I mean, I'd rather just pay for everything right away! That way, it wouldn't take so long for the tax dollars to benefit me. Of course, some taxes are necessary, like the ones that benefit the military...

    Honestly it depends on your financial situation but If I had no taxes I would have more cash to spend but I have to pay for services. Although I don't use those services that much I'll get a check up once a month or a dentist visit which thanks to my insurance provided by my employer is very cheap. I also graduated college with no debt because of frugal spending, building up cash since sixteen doing my part time job (Also invested in stocks and put cash in cvs only using cash to buy some food or gas), and scholarships I took no student loans.
