Why do you have to tax someone? When you want government to spend the money they collect from the tax. When can you lower taxes? When you want government to spend less than they are spending.

When "you" want the government to spend money... When "you" want the government to spend less... The problem with your advice is that the term "you" is not all inclusive. In fact, it is mutually exclusive. It's the "Gimme my free stuff" crowd that wants the government to spend more (on them) and it's the "50% of all wage earners" crowd who actually pay federal income taxes who want the government to spend less.
