    Wait....Weren't you the one arguing that he should accept the taxation, or move? Now you say it is about more than location? What the hell man....

    Haymarket's argument is very convoluted and flawed. He does not explain how entering or leaving a voluntary relationship has anything to do with where one is physically located.

    It means its about much more than simply location. As I have said repeatedly its about you picking a nation to be a citizen of and enjoying all that comes with it both benefits and obligations and doing so of your own free will.

    It always was. Its about being an adult and exercising your ability to make choices and standing by the consequences of your choices.

    Words of wisdom are seldom heard by the willfully deaf.

    I get the part about how individuals enter into relationships with other individuals. I get the part how a continued relationship could be contingent upon all the members adhering to some rules.

    The jump you then make is a non-sequitur. Why would an individual who chooses to leave that relationship have any necessity to move from his current location?

    Of course you do. It was your own line.

    What do you suppose will happen to the infrastructure, those who are being encouraged to rely on food stamps, the OWS types, Veterans, the infirm, and so on. Does anyone seriously believe that, given all of this, that the government can give retired Americans a cushy pension as well?

    Commitments have already been broken and those with intelligence should recognize that sooner rather than later.
