America has low taxes

Henry Blodget at Business Insider posted an article essentially stating that Americans shouldn't complain about high taxes.



He posted the following chart to make Americans feel better about their indentured servitude:


See?  Americans don't have its so bad, according to Blodget.  Blodget's chart illustrates that there are other criminal organizations governments that are much more oppressive than the US government so he argues that Americans shouldn't complain about their lot.

I believe that one most posses a slave-like mentality to look at the chart with Blodget's perspective and focus on the columns to the left of the USA column to feel good about being oppressed less than others.

On the other hand, people who cherish liberty focus on the columns to the right of the USA column and see hope and wonder if the USA could ever be the right-most column.
