You subtracted $5 state parks donation

…when renewing your vehicle license plate because…

A) You don't use the parks much.B) With your liquor bill the way it is, you don't really have five bucks to spare. C) You don't believe in government. D) You loathe Washington's regressive tax structure with its crazy-quilt of fees and embarrassing reliance on sales tax, so you resent this tacking $5 onto the tag renewal and don't feel like being an enabler for a juvenile approach to state budgeting. E) You are cheap. F) You are almost certain that the parks are used by people who do not vote according to what you think is right G) Form says “optional.” So you opted out. H) You believe it's socialism. I) NA/You are not a resident of Washington. J) Can't afford it while saving up for a home theater with Dolby surroundsound, stadium seating and a 16-foot High Def smellovision screen. K) Other.
