Time to take you meds, Chris. No one is being put into a cage or killed, except perhaps your proper understanding of the way all of life, private and puiblic, works. Unless you already have all the gold you need, you will have to work for someone -- or some customer -- to provide the means to feed, clothe and house yourself and family.
The gov't is no different, it needs revenue to do all the things that everyone wants it to do, including provide guys like you, and just about 99% of the rest of the country, with enough Social Security and Medicare to live on after they are too tired to work any more.
So quit complaining and be f*cking thankful!
