Hi Liz,

I'm sorry but I don't understand your point. I am aware that the
founding fathers were in favour of taxes. As I said to Bruno, I admire
the constitution but I think that even more freedom can be achieved. I
just meant that paying taxes to kings on the other side of the world
is ridiculous, and that the king or queen themselves are ridiculous
entities in the modern world.
