The Evils of Taxation

 I believe that a lot of what the government does, they shouldn't.  They provide services that could be obtained for less in the public sector, purely because the people in charge think that they know better how to spend our money than we do.  Everyone these days seems to be looking at the way the government spends our money, but before they can spend it, they have to take it from us.  As most people are unaware of just how much of our money is taken, I thought it worth taking the time to quickly explain just how much of our money the government gets it's grubby mits on.  In particular, I'm interested in the marginal rate that you pay.
