    then you need the Federal Govt. to take your money and spend it where they want. You are exactly what Obama wants and needs.

    Then give back to society. But you are asking others to involuntarily give back to society through the force of government. And the more power the liberals insist on giving the government the less power every individual has. You'll happily give bureaucrats and politicians more control over your lives while others want to remain more free.

    Liberals tend to think (incorrectly) that the economy is a zero sum game but they never seem to recognize power that way.

    What does that have to do with the choice of where to spend your money. Common defense is the responsibility of this govt. and you seem to continue to ignore it was the Democrat Senate that authorized the war in Iraq 76-23 and it was the Democrats' own rhetoric that prevented impeachment charges from being brought because that rhetoric would have destroyed them. Fact remains the public can and do spend their money more wisely than the Federal Govt. on social issues. Defense isn't a social issue.

    WWI - Democrat
    WWII-Democrat
    Korean War- Democrat
    Bay of Pigs- Democrat
    Vietnam War- Democrat
    Iraq-Republican
    Afghanistan-Republican

    There was also a time when Americans supported their leaders in time of war, not dictators like Saddam Hussein or the murderous groups like the Taliban. The history of the modern Left is riddled with their members aiding, abetting and propagandizing for Communism.

    Taxes are part of the social contract.

    Resources are finite.

    Iraq wasn't "Defense". It was "Offense".

    Are they? Perhaps you have some material to support this claim? Does that material of yours also provide what percentages of private property the government should take from any individual?

    Resources are finite.
    Exactly, which is why the government should not be many trillions of dollars in debt. They have exhausted their resources yet continue to demand and spend more and you appear to support this.

    There was a time when Congress declared war.

    Did you really just point to the three Democrat Wars that used the "Red Scare" to justify those wars and then attack them for being sympathetic to Communism?
