I live in Australia and we're one of the highest taxed populations anywhere in the world.
I think our ~100 billion dollars spent on welfare needs to be reduced, and spent on more constructive things - like repairing all of the roads (State Responsibilities, mostly)
Fair tax is impossible, because as long as everyone earns differently they pay a different amount of tax.
Not blowing my own trumpet, but my parents pay 49 cents in the dollar income tax and it is very depressing having to pay enourmous tax bills all the time. I guess you can't do much about it.
As long as our country keeps running the way it is, we can't complain. (I.e. as long as Mark Latham and the Labor Party are in opposition)
Tax is just one of those things that is a part of life. But it seems to me that its a tax on success, here in Australia.
