The Libertarian Party of the Seacoast New Hampshire gathered in Market Square of Portsmouth, New Hampshire to protest “the federal government’s unconstitutional taxation of the hard-earned income of individuals.”
The group wielded signs with such phrases as “Taxes = Theft”, “Forced taxation is wage slavery”, and “Taxes are too high. You worked four and a half months for Uncle Sam.”
One of the protestors, channeling the spirit of hip-hop artist Cardi B’s Instagram rant, held a sign that quoted “Uncle Sam, I want to know what the f**k you’re doing with my motherf**king tax money.”
Vice Chairman Brian Shields when asked by reporters on their protest stated “There should be an element of choice in funding government. Instead, it is compulsory. For example, take the gas tax. If you don’t want to pay it, you can buy a car that doesn’t use gas. There is no choice here.”
The Party’s Event Coordinating Committee Chair Robb Goodell also felt this sentiment explaining “We pay for the things we need, and the things we desire. That is how it should be.”
