    Splitting hairs. That's a socialist.

    No offense, but if form holds, you're someone who has not yet made their hay in this world, and thus, hasn't had their hay taken away and given to someone sitting on a couch not attempting to make their own hay.

    You will one day, and your views will change. That tends to be the cycle. Age and experience beget wisdom and realism.

    Pardon the diatribe.
    , it's greedy of me to not want to give my money to some agency that will do whatever it feels like doing with it? I might as well give my money to my next door neighbor. He'll probably do more good with it than the government. At least he won't use that money in wealth destruction like the government does (urban renewal).

    Not really - socialism is supporting government ownership of the means of production, social democracy is supporting a "free" market tempered with social values.

    No offense, but if form holds, you're someone who has not yet made their hay in this world, and thus, hasn't had their hay taken away and given to someone sitting on a couch not attempting to make their own hay.
    I'm someone who willingly puts their hay in the pile to pay my debt to society, actually.

    Do you even know how old I am?

    So far the only thing older conservatives have demonstrated to me is that age begets idiocy and delusion.

    It's greedy of you to demand well kept infrastructure and the like but bitch about taxes constantly. Seriously - no wonder NHS is so much better than anything the US offers.

    We don't "bitch" about paying for infrastructure. That's not what the money is used for, and you know it. It's used for ACORN, and a million projects designed solely to make people dependent on the Democrats for everything. They use it to buy votes, and nothing more.

    Oh come on, I barely go a day without hearing someone whinge about taxes in this country.

    Perhaps if people weren't so politically apathetic we *could* have things like NHS, the Shinkansen, 35 hour work weeks, etc.
