The Nation published some letters in response to Chris Hedges’s war tax resistance article, including one from me:
Chris Hedges has the right idea. Too many Americans who should know better are content merely to disapprove, tsk-tsk, wave signs or protest at rallies. It’s way past time to put our money where our mouths are. I’m only surprised Hedges has drawn his line in the sand as far back as he has. For me, the government crossed that line with the Iraq invasion in . I stopped paying federal income taxes then and have since reduced or eliminated my contributions to other federal taxes as well.
Now I’m putting all of my time and money on the side of my values instead of letting Congress spend it on Pentagon priorities and political pork. Why wait for the next atrocity? Join the War Tax Boycott today. There are many ways to resist taxes: legal ways and ways that require civil disobedience, safe ways and ways that take courage. There’s a method that’s right for you.
