I've never considered USA as a tax haven, but it sure offers a low tax burden compared to some countries. Just look at Mitt's tax burden.
Important to remember is that tax rules are very complex and while a country may look interesting from a corporate tax pow it may not come out favorable from an individual tax pow. Also income, wealth and consumption is taxed differently.
All of this is a matter of how sovereign countries chose to fund the services they deem necessary within their borders.
Where the word "tax haven" comes to its right is where companies or individuals choose to hide part of their income stream or part of their wealth or to divert that income or wealth to an other territory than where they would naturally incur taxation.
I think you should pay your tax, and be happy for the services your country give in return.
If you are not happy about your country consider moving, but can't recommend doing it for tax reasons.
