To Whom It May Concern:

In light of the massive corruption, fraud and misappropriation of working people’s tax money and the use of said money to commit murder and mayhem worldwide I find I must object the misuse of such funds by refusing to pay them. As a conscientious objector to the war in Iraq and the foreign policy that has caused so much death and suffering worldwide I cannot in good conscious financially support the corrupt government practices that have caused the deaths of so many innocent people; for me to do so would make me a party to murder which my personal and spiritual beliefs prohibit.

Instead of being represented by the government, taxpayers are being defrauded and robbed of their hard-earned money which then is used to harm people worldwide. The abuse of taxpayers is so blatant now that little attempt is made to disguise it and only the most naive, stubborn, or those that profit from this massive corruption will defend it.

With huge tax breaks for the super-rich and large corporations paying no taxes at all, the message is clear to working people; give us your money and shut up, it’s all you’re good for.

In a time when elections are rigged by wrongly denying the right to vote to citizens who had the legal right to do so and by voting machines that are programmed to alter the outcome of the vote, thereby thwarting the will and intent of voters; citizens are unable to choose candidates to represent them and are as a result misrepresented and defrauded by officials gaining access to power by illegal means.

When elections are rigged we are not being represented. The only interest that the government has in us is the money it wants to misappropriate from us. These profoundly corrupt government officials will not abide by our wishes, will not look out for our interests, or the interests of the poor and middle class worldwide, and as a result there is no other meaningful way to protest such massive corruption than not to support it. I will donate the money to legitimate, worthy charities.
