There's no need for me to tax myself; everything I buy carries a 9.75% sales tax, part of which goes to the Tennessee Department of Corrections and part of which goes to the Tennessee Department of Education. In addition, over $300 million from the Tennessee lottery goes toward "education" each year. I would be hard pressed to determine which is the bigger waste. Obviously, money isn't the answer to either problem.Then you would be willing to tax yourself to support the appropriate prison infrastructure. Never mind the schools for educating the children who can be assumed to be drawn to a life of crime because their other opportunities are limited.
