No Representation Without Taxation

Amity Shlaes has a good point:
"The mood of the skeptics today is just the reverse of the mood at the Boston Tea Party. Then, we said no taxation without representation. Today, try flipping that line: No representation without taxation."
Society fractures when the majority votes to have no taxes on themselves and all the taxes on "the other". There is literally, "no skin in the game" so why not have bigger and bigger government paid for by "someone else"?
