Sunaj, you misunderstood what I wrote. There's not a thing wrong with protesting, contacting your reps, or organizing to oppose such legislation -- very much the opposite, it's commendable when people do those things.

But when people begin to talk about resisting taxation, or "refusing to go along," it raises flags, because some forms of tax resistance, such as refusing to pay all or part of your taxes, are illegal. What I wrote was just a general warning for folks not to advocate such -- we don't do that here.
