Retired and over-taxed

Maryland is a beautiful state, I've lived here for over 45 years, and there was a time when I was employed I could afford to live here. However, since retiring, I've seen my monthly income slowly eaten away due to a constant increase in taxes. Just about everything you can imagine is taxed here....including flushing the toilet...it's called a flush tax. I assume the governor and legislature will next figue out a way to tax the air we breathe. As an aside, crime is on the increase and there's few means of protecting oneself due to Maryland's gun law....pay your money and someone else decides whether or not you are in enough danger to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Therefore I'll be looking elsewhere to live as taxes and crime are running me out of Dodge.....
