Taxation Is Theft, Unless . . .

Julian Sanchez notes that in a Beliefnet interview, Ann Coulter endorses the anarcho-capitalist position that taxation is theft. "Confiscatory taxation enforced by threat of imprisonment is "stealing," a practice strongly frowned upon by our Creator." Sanchez notes that she doesn't really mean it. "If you think it's legitimate for a state to exist, however limited, you're pretty much committed to the proposition that it can legitimately demand the resources necessary to carry out its authentic functions."

I only wish that her Charlotte Allen, who conducted the interview would have asked Coulter how she favors paying for the trillion dollar war she so strongly supports.

Are you kidding? It's going to pay for itself 10 times over. Best investment ever.

Dude, what do you mean how is she gonna pay for it? CREDIT. The same way George is paying for it.

Hey, Clark, it's Chris Baker. How are things in Tenn?

If Ann Coulter didn't dress like a hooker, nobody would pay any attention to her.
