    The fact is that the government, like a highwayman, says to a man Your money, or your life And many, if not most, taxes are paid under the compulsion of that threat.The government does not, indeed, waylay a man in a lonely place, spring upon him from the roadside, and, holding a pistol to his head, proceed to rifle his pockets But the robbery is none the less a robbery on that account and it is fardastardly and shameful.The highwayman takes solely upon himself the responsibility, da The fact is that the government, like a highwayman, says to a man Your money, or your life And many, if not most, taxes are paid under the compulsion of that threat.The go...
