"Our legislators acted on our behalf." This legislative action is the problem because..... "no subjugation of the people's will or rights." This is untrue. The people who voted "No" also had to pay.
You'll argue majority rule of course. I suggest you go back to the top of my comment and read it again. Some people did not wish to contribute. You wanted their money, did not have the decency to ask for voluntary donations so you asked the legislature to force compliance. Violence - not attractive.
