I still notice some people saying, “I’m proud to pay my taxes!” And it’s still pathetic, for several reasons. 1) Being “proud” that you did something you were FORCED to do is absurd. If you voluntarily contribute to the well-being of your fellow man, great. But it’s not charitable–you get no credit for compassion or generosity–if you had no choice in the matter. Taking “pride” in being robbed is looney. 2) Unless you completely approve of everything “government” does, then being “proud to pay your taxes”
