But the big pisser is when my hard earned money is spent on **** that I DISAPROVE!!! Like military invasion of other countries just because we don’t like their way of living!! Also - money given to Israel which has no justification of existing other than religion (you can’t tell me that is a secular decision).
Is it really a big pisser? Is it reasonable that something as complex as a national government's policies should match up exactly with everyone's preferences?
