A nice way to visualize the 22 Trillion USD the IRS needs to steal from US taxpayers, just to break even, is to compare it to time...
One million seconds is about 11 days. A million is a lot.
One billion seconds is about 31 years. 31 years is a lot longer than 11 days! A lot!
And, 1 trillion seconds is about 31,000 years.
22 trillion seconds is 682,000 years.
Always remember: Taxation is theft!
