Doug Cobb, an entrepreneur in South Carolina, recently became upset when his local newspaper would not publish letters that he submitted to them.
“I just did what I thought I could do. I could put my message on my sign out there and at least people would know that at least me for one I’m dissatisfied with the amount of taxes and also with what they are spending our tax money on,” said Cobb.
Cobb believes that people can do a better job taking care of the poor if money was not taken away from them by the government.
“I just feel like we can better spend the money ourselves than this government bureaucracy that’s ever growing and ever increasing — and we just aren’t getting our money’s worth.”
When it comes to what should become of property taxes, Cobb thinks that they should be eliminated so that property can actually be owned by the people rather than by the government.
“I don’t think there should be any property taxes period. We should work to eliminate property taxes because then we will actually own our property instead of just renting it perpetually from the government. We don’t own anything as long as we are paying taxes on it.”
