Finally a more commons sense reference to families and children and taxes, then
the usual mindless, half-baked, self-centered rant we usually see on this site,
about this subject. Of course we still have to put up with stupid, predictable,
musings about lame theories of overpopulation and "damaging" resources.

increase it by a factor of 5 or more. The problems arise, when societies,
governments and organizations act in foolish, unsustainable ways. I
don't personally find any honor in paying extra taxes, by not taking
available deductions, but you can do what you want. Families and singles with

more people then families or singles without children. This is the basis for
additional deductions, but I also agree tax code is written to influence our
actions. The government is inefficient and overbearing. That is why
conservatives, like myself, choose to limit taxes. We to seek to control
wasteful spending, by limiting taxation!

someone does not have children the government is taking more from them in order
to pay for someone else's reduced tax liability.
