Maybe I just don't want to?

What if I CAN afford the additional cost of the override, but don't agree with it in substance or merit? Is it wrong to just NOT want to pay more taxes? I'm conflicted.... I don't spend my money foolishly, I don't by 3 and 4 dollar cups of coffee, I drive to the next town to by my gas that's twenty cents cheaper per gallon, and I shop at Market Basket. My house fund will suffer if this passes, because I am sure my rent will rise, further delaying my ability to afford a house - not to say it will be here, but anywhere. I don't know, this is all very crazy....
