Fair enough. I apologize. I am deeply sorry. I made an assumption and was way off base. I really wish I didn't assume about your situation and I couldn't have been more wrong. Please forgive me on that.
I admire what you are doing because that is a deep sacrifice. Not easy I bet, but truly principled.
Re: Not paying federal taxes & your neg.
I am a law abiding citizen who chooses to earn less than what is required to pay federal taxes.
I believe it is immoral to support the wars, and won't let my work and wages be used for killing innocent civilians overseas.
I will not support evil, and will not pay federal taxes until all foriegn wars end.
Once Ron Paul is elected president, I will move myself out of my self imposed poverty and earn my full potential again, which will result in my paying federal taxes.
Until then I will sacrifice some luxuries and live on 12K per year to avoid supporting evil.
Sorry if this position is offensive to you, but I felt you deserved a more detailed explaination.
