    Again your opinion and nothing else.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Or, how terrible, opinion on a discussion site. Will the terror never end?

    If you can think, you know the comparison is idiocy. If you can't, you'll buy any stupidity.

    Opinion and insult is all you have. There is little to discuss at that point.

    Yes, calling something what it is can be insulting. But that doesn't change that such is what it is. I already showed clearly that no one taxed is chained, beaten, sold, or in anyway held as a slave. That is fact, and not opinion. You merely showed someone say the silly statement and think that superior evidence. That you can't see the trouble with that is bothersome.

    Too bad you think so. Too bad that your opinion only recognizes chattel slavery as the only form, that's quite myopic of you. And too bad you find opinions differing from yours bothersome. That's your problem.

    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Really, it is the only form. The rest is hyperbole. What I find bothersome is the use of exaggeration as if it were not an exaggeration. This is dishonest.
