    I'm curious, when the wealthy are already paying 15% less than they did under Reagan, why would you object to asking them to pay 1% more? Are you all so wealthy that this would hurt you, or is it just part of your principle that government should shrink until you can drown it in the bathtub?

    Because creeping incrementalism is no compromise, merely a slow motion surrender.

    The idea is to keep taxes low period, force spending to remain low period, and keep government small period. Small government maximizes personal liberty. Period.

    Strawman idiocy. But no surprise there.

    The Somalis have all the government, all the liberty, and all the accouterments of modern society they desire. As they should have. They choose to perpetuate a state of anarchy and tribalism.

    Why are you so quick to disrespect their choice?

    Just pointing out that your "ideal government" has already been shown not to work.
