If you pay taxes in any state currently conducting military actions, you are indirectly supporting war with those taxes.
No your not. Not unless you want to.
Money is essentially a form of energy. It is fluid. That is why it is represented by the water element (also earth element).
When the government takes taxes from you, they are just taking a kind of energy. They are not saying "exactly this percentage of Javier's taxes are going to go to war", and "exactly this percentage are going to this welfare program, or that welfare program". They are just taking your taxes and then pooling them together with everyone else's taxes and putting them in their coffers. Then they are saying, "we are allotting this much to defense", and "we are allotting this much to this welfare program", "we are allotting this much to this other welfare program", etc. Your dollars are simply in the mass pool. Now if you voted for a Republican, then you can claim that some of your money is the money that went to war. If you voted as a Democrat you can claim that your money was used to support social welfare. Since money is fluid, you are not giving to any specific cause when you pay your taxes. Who you vote for has much to do with what you can claim your tax money is being spent on. I did not vote for Trump, so my portion of the tax money the gov't spends does not go to war, and does not go to building border walls, etc. This is something people need to understand, imo.
For those who are not Americans, the principle is the same. Your money basically goes to the programs you wish it does, as long as the government spends on those programs. It is based on your intention.
