Wyoming had the lowest taxes for residents. That state's taxpayers shell out 66 percent less than the national median. Alaska came in closely behind, and Nevada rounded out the top three.I'm going to give you all the secret to low taxes. Theoretically you can do it in your state too, Heck it can be done nationally, if the people would pull their collective heads out of the hind ends and insist on it. Here is the secret. Write it down. Email it to your elected representatives. Ready?
We don't need the government to do stuff for us. We don't need government programs. We don't need out of control government spending. We don't need welfare. We don't need tons of clowns with badges running around telling us what to do. We don't need bureaucrats. We don't need lobbyists bribing our "betters" to steel from our children and grandchildren so that they can benefit their college drinking buddies.
Every last one of us has at least one gun. Every last party at the public trough knows it. The clowns with badges know it. Everyone behaves themselves accordingly.
We don't need or want government largess. Because we turn it down we don't oppress our neighbors in the name of "fairness" or "social justice" or any other fancy term commonly used to rob the poor and give to the rich. When tax revenues are projected to go down, we cut spending. Because we don't let the government spend it, we don't have to take it away from anyone. This lets us pay for the few things that are legitimate public expenditures without overburdening the people whom are allegedly "served".
Go and do thou likewise.
