    It kinda reminds me of the "if I do not have kids I should not have to pay for public schools" argument. It simply comes off as heartless to me.

    I know Dan is a good and cool dude though.

    But for the record-there are plenty of Pagan Based org too. It is not like the right owns the right to help people and find those on the left do it for more of the right reasons.

    The left wants government to do it as seen on this thread.

    When it comes right down to it, if you break ANY law, whether it be towards the government, the private sector, or an individual, and do not take some sort of responsibility for it, eventually, guys with guns will be there for you. The "guys with guns" argument is actually pretty silly. In reality, what is really being said is that there are consequences for behaviors... which is true no matter what you do.

    I'm not making an argument. I'm just pointing out to hazlnut that the government uses force or the threat of force to compel individuals to pay taxes. He seems to think that this is not the case...

    Maybe, but forcing your own views of "kindness" or "charity" on other people is walking a dangerous road. Maybe you think it must go somewhere nice since it is paved with good intentions and all...

    Also for the record, some of us Pagans are conservative.
