    Once again, I failed at being clear. My bad. My point is that we send people into wars whether they like it or not. And people have to pay taxes whether they like it or not.
    Also, you have yet to answer this:
    If the top 1% isn't gonna do their share of the taxes, who is?
    Mr Dragon, Our military is voluntary if they don't want to go to war then don't join. People have to pay taxes like it or not... no **** Sherlock. Well actually they can refuse to but they go to jail. And I think the 1% should pay THEIR fair share of the taxes not everybody else's and the 1% has been paying their taxes except the ones who dodge it. And yet again your numbers are wrong do some research.

    *And I know we have a draft but no ones going to get drafted anytime soon.

    You're not going to get help. The government owes $15 trillion and getting deeper in debt every day. The country s broke. There is nothing anyone can do. And you are attacking the only people who can help you.

    You want it the way it was, when just being an American made you special, when you had every opportunity to get a trade, an education, and to raise a family without any real fear of tomorrow. Those days are gone now, and there is nothing you can do to bring them back.

    You have squandered your future and that of your descendants on overseas entanglements, self indulgent drugs, abortions, food stamps, junk food, electronic gadgets, two years of unemployment benefits,and now demand everything else be 'free' because you have reached the point where you don't even have the education and understanding, as Americans once did, that nothing is 'free'. Now you will turn on each other to try and keep things as they are until things get better but it will never get better. It will only get worse. And more violent. Those poor dumb bastards inarticulately wanting something, anything, are just an indication of more to come.

    You are headed for third world status and are completely unprepared. You're helpless. Others can only watch in horror as, after over 235 years as an example of hope and freedom to the world, the United States has begun to completely unravel.

    No they aren't. They still happen each and every day.

    But you are right, nobody is going to hand it to you.

    Which they already did, resulting in the largest redistribution of wealth in human history. Damn, I thought the Commies were good at that, but the banksters take the cake.

    Everyone is clamoring for tax payers dollars. The OWS are doing the same thing with their list of demands.

    The only protest group who ever wanted the government to do LESS is the Tea Party, and they were sidelined rather quickly by media hostility, charges of 'racism', and so on. Perhaps the American people deserve more of Obama, but I don't readily see why.
