Lydia Maria Child
Taxation Without Representation
printer friendly version
I reduce the argument to very simple elements. I pay taxes for
property of my own earning and saving, and I do not believe in
taxation without representation. As for representation by proxy,
that savors too much of the plantation system, however kind
the master may be. I am a human being, and every human being
has a right to a voice in the laws which claim authority to tax him,
to imprison him, or to hang him.
