Income tax sucks, why am i getting it

My country is supposed to be liberated from the clutches of a massive out of control federal government. I dont want income tax, and I don't think we need it. I have taken all the liberterian stances on issues that I could, but my income tax rate seems ot be rising. How can I put a stop to this, or what is causing it?

It's probably because it is o so easy to get income tax and o so hard to loose it. Anything AND I MEAN ANYTHING that increases government spending increases income tax as well. That means welfare, health care, military spending, bussiness subsidies, law enforcement, education, and about a half a dozen other things.

On the other hand, there are only a couple issues that actually lower it (all of them explicitly state it).
