    so stop spamming the same silly question over and over

    and why wont you answer the question--why does this government deserve or need more of our money
    If you answered it please cite the post number or provide a link. I saw no answer and I strongly suspect you DID NOT ANSWER the question because you made the stuff up.

    I answered your question as soon as you asked it: because we have a huge national debt to pay. Adam gave you the same answer.

    See how easy it is to give a direct answer to a question Turtle? I hope you can do the same.

    dozens of posts have demonstrated that even taking every penny of income above 100K a year won't pay down the deficit the way things are going


    so tell me Haymarket, why not demand that the government make MASSIVE MASSIVE Cuts first to PROVE it can do it?

    and those who pay far of the income tax burden than their share of the income is not the proper place to start demanding more taxes from

    That is a separate issue and you are again confusing apples with cinderblocks. I have repeatedly said that BOTH sides of the ledger must be dealt with and that means increases in revenue from ALL Americans as well as significant budget cuts.

    So why are you repeatedly unable to give me the straight answer about where you are getting this claim about exchange of value being a necessary component for taxation?

    Before I answer yet another question of yours while you ignore the same one over and over and over again:

    So why are you repeatedly unable to give me the straight answer about where you are getting this claim about exchange of value being a necessary component for taxation?

    Its an opinion based on what taxes ought to be based on and it is the basis of a consumption tax which is far preferable to the class warfare taxes you support

    So this is simply more of your own pontification based on your own personal belief system which has at its highest goal your own personal tax cut.

    Understood. And all this time I thought it was some principle or law or something with actual foundation attached to it.

    My work here is done for the night.

    and your posts are based on a desire for the government to confiscate more wealth of other people

    I will let others judge what is more disgusting

    I believe he has said several times that he thinks everyone's taxes -- including his -- should go up, so that dog won't hunt. Some people think that the good of the country is more important than the size of their refund check.

    Not at all. My posts are based on a love for America and its people. I have made that very clear in post after post. My work here was an expression to refer to my posts to get to the bottom of your claims and allegations and that has been done when you clarified that it was merely your own belief and had nothing to do with any law or principle.

    No Turtle - I am not paid to post here... but sure wish I was. If you know somebody paying - please let me know.
