How people meet the taxation system in Europe and in the USA. Do they have any protest about this or that kind of taxation?

People are complaining about too much money "stolen" from their pocket by the government. I'm Georgian citizen and I'm interested what is happening in the European countries and in USA .

    These tend to be grass-roots Libertarians who don't seem to be aware that they're often far more reliant on the services paid for by taxation than anyone else.
    I'm not entirely sure how much people take notice of them, except for the fact that what such groups typically fight for (no taxes and no regulation) just seems to be exactly what a number of Multi Billionaires want (no taxes and no regulation).
    I'm not inclined to believe its a coincidence.
