Dan Taxation Is Theft Behrman is an international speaker and advocate for the idea that Taxation Is Theft. Out of contempt for the violent collection and immoral enforcement of taxation, Dan changed his middle name to “Taxation Is Theft”. To make this change, he did not petition any court, but changed it by declaration, insisting free men don’t ask for permission.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, it was at a young age when Dan first took note of the coercive and oppressive nature of the government, and witnessed first hand how unwritten law and procedure can turn a government created to protect people, into one that uses violence against them. Dan Taxation Is Theft Behrman has joined the fight for freedom in American politics, to stand up against these injustices and restore integrity and fairness to this once free country.
Dan is a self taught software engineer, with unique views about education and the value of self-learning. He has worked with multi-million dollar international startups and Fortune 500 companies. Having a private career in software creation and development has allowed Dan to become a digital nomad and move across borders as a free man. In his career and in his life, he has never found a problem too big to solve, recognizing that the best solution is often the simplest.
Non-profit work, activism and volunteerism have always been important in Dan’s life. He has a history of working with the Sea Save Foundation, a Santa Monica, CA based international ocean conservation organization, and contributing code to open source software projects. He has supported the Libertarian Party and dozens of their candidates with training and resources. Currently, Dan is supporting Students for Liberty Uganda and many other African freedom-based initiatives, with resources and guidance.
Libertarian principles of free markets, individual rights, environmental and social issues are at the core of Dan’s beliefs. He has worked tirelessly to deliver this message to audiences in 6 continents, empowering people in some of the world's most impoverished nations. The smallest minority is the individual and their rights should always be protected.
As a digital nomad, he is currently running his presidential campaign from Cancun, Mexico. As president, he seeks to transform the federal government into one that interacts with its citizens on a purely voluntary basis, so that we can be free from the coercive nature of abusive taxation and regulations. His campaign is one to promote ideas that can be easily understood by individuals regardless of their race, religion, socio-economic background or political affiliation.
Dan believes that government belongs to the people and we are not government property. The purpose of government is to protect our rights, not to force us to live our lives in any particular way that a simple majority has deemed preferable. Any person should be free to live their life however they prefer, so long as they don't hurt others and don't take their stuff.
