Letter to the Editor: Taxes not tyranny

Friday, December 17, 2010

To my husband and me, paying taxes has been a privilege, not tyranny as a recent letter to the editor suggested.

It is wonderful to travel on America's roads. It is nice to be able to call a fire department if there is a need.

Ever since biblical times, certain individuals have hated paying taxes. Thus, the Bible says to render unto Caesar what is Caesar's.

President Obama is a good president.
