Schadenfreude as Tax Policy
The first most important thing about taxes is to have someone else pay them. Sadly, most everyone knows this, and the others are busily setting about making you pay theirs. Hence, you are most unlikely to win this battle.
The fallback option is to remember that if you want more of something subsidize it, but if you want less of something tax it. You will not be able rid yourself of the onerous tax burden, but you might well be able to cast it up on those you dislike.
Nothing like a bit of schadenfreude to brighten the day.
Some argue (legitimately) that taxes should just raise money and do nothing else. While true, that makes an extremely boring story. Besides, though I tend to agree, that horse is long out of the barn.
Think of things that you would like less of and let me know. We will propose to tax them if only to make them go away.
