I work a lot of hours. I work 40+ hours a week at my day job, then I come home to do lawns. Right now, I have 7 customers, but that does rise and fall as people decide to do their own lawn or whatever. Still, I struggle a bit with my bills. I don't go out to eat, I don't buy fancy clothes or new vehicles or whatever. I live reasonably and frugally, choosing my enjoyments for their lasting value and hoping that I spend money responsibly otherwise.
In some ways, I do resent those who live off my taxes. I do resent having to pay more than I would like so that others don't have to work. But, that's just a bit of selfish thinking that creeps in.... momentarily making its way past the understanding that folks need to eat, to have a place to live, heat, water, hope even. In a perfect world, I wouldn't be paying taxes while others aren't. But, in a perfect world, there would be no sickness, poverty, disability, hopelessness. No child would be hungry, cold, afraid. No adult, either.
So, maybe I do resent having my hard earned money go for other things than my simple comfort. But, I gotta tell you, I have a lot more problem having my taxes going to millionaires and dictators, or buying bullets and multi-million dollar killing machines, or other such. Of all of it, having my tax dollars help someone be healthy, helping my very neighbors, seems a great use of that money.
