I'm Allowed to Rob You!

Larken Rose at YouTube - if you haven't yet realized that taxation is theft, this video may help push you over the threshold.

If I were to write "I'm allowed to rob you" on a piece of paper, would that give me the moral authority to do so? Of course not. If I made it a fancy-looking document signed by a bunch of my friends, and I called it a "tax" instead of theft, would I then have that authority? Of course not. So why is a fancy parchment, the Constitution, signed by a bunch of dead men, any different?
