Taxation Without Representation
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Let's play a game. I am going to give you ten pieces of candy. Then I am going to call out the name of an item. If you have that item, you are to give me some of your candy. I will tell you how much. If you run out of candy before the game is over, you can no longer play. Ready? Here we go. Are you wearing shoes? If you are, give me two pieces of your candy. Do you have two eyes in your head? If so, give me three pieces of candy. Do you have brown hair? Give me three pieces of your candy. Do you wear glasses? Give me two pieces of your candy. If you have any candy left, you may eat it.
 
2     Some of you have lots of candy left. Some of you have none. Was that a fair game? What you just did was pay taxes. I took candy away from you if you had something I wanted to tax. Your parents pay taxes every year for services the government gives them. You pay a small tax every time you go to the store to buy something. When the first people settled in our country, they had to pay taxes to the king back in England.
