    Nobody is advocating people get everything for free.

    And let's see how much people will vote to continue fund the War on Drugs. And to fund government contracts to the defense industry. And to fund bailouts to banks and other financial institutions.
    If the government didn't do defense contracts they wouldn't have a defense. :p

    Already looked but didn't see anything about cell phones. Since you obviously know the CC by heart just quote it where it says cell phones can be taxed.

    No - as I said to allow large-scale mutualization of costs that promote the public good. Such as health care. Specifically birth control to those who need it. Especially when the costs to providing it is less than the costs to welfare programs to provide them with help, or the costs to society to have those children being raised poor, hungry, and uneducated as they are likely to turn to crime for a variety of factors, and therefore will siphon money from the public treasury via costs in incarceration.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    The poster specifically said "defense industry" and not defense. You also conveniently ignore the other examples.

    Yes, indeed, we have a representative republic. And it's in the states' legislatures where we do put matters like this up for a vote. How did your opinion fare in Texas? Not so well.

    The question isn't whether or not we have a defense.

    The question is how much should be spent on it.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Except nobody is advocating that those be provided for free.

    Rather, they be provided by mutualizing the cost via taxes paid to the government.

    Big difference.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    You could also ask him since when did it deal with taxes.
