When will conservatives realize that taxes are the price one pays to live in a civilized society?

They don't have enough sense to understand that. Instead, they want to decrease federal income while demanding more money be spent, especially on the military.

Taxes have be the reason for the American revolution. if the taxes exceed our income there may be another revolution.There must be a limitation to the constant raise of taxes.
Senior citizen have paid taxes all their life time. A when a spouse dies the Gov nixes his income that was shared with the wife and vice versa. This is not the case in Europe where the spouse collects both pensions.

If more taxes meant more civilisation then maybe conservatives would be happier about it. Sadly, it does not work like that.
So we end up with a world where a tax means that the government thinks it can spend your money better than you can.

When taxes are used ONLY for the few things authorized in the Constitution. When everyone pays the same flat tax rate.

Taxation is not the only way to pay for public services, in fact it's an inferior way because it makes the state reliant on corporations, making regulatory capture much easier. The state lacks any financial basis of its own, thus in practice it is essentially powerless, and is easily captured by the private sector. "Public" services that result from this tend to be very low quality and usually only come into existence from a lot of civil unrest, then slowly become privatized again and fall apart.

And yet all major forms of taxation would be a crime if anyone else committed it.
Assumes ownership of everyone income.
Turns property owners into rents.
Btw, it's not actually true that taxation is needed under the current system.

thats actually not true .. some services do deserve a reserved fee, but taxes as a whole in a society that uses a 100% fiat money thats just printed off needs zero taxes .. if you 'are' getting taxed somebody has put themselves in the position of middle man and is skimming money off for themselves ... the colonists under Franklin proved how it 'should' work by controlling the printing of their own currency before england outlawed it .. they simply controlled the supply for the 'good of the people' and not to make profit .. it worked 'too good' for the bank of england .. the hardship that resulted from england banning their currency and imposing taxes is by and large what led to the unrest that sparked the revolution ..
