    explain it ... or admit you made an inaccurate comparison
    but quit denying the obvious
    I enver called anyone a Marxist, nor did I make an inaccurate comparison. Last time I checked, our right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness is, "uninalienable rights", that have been, "endowed by our creator"; not something pruchased with our tax dollars.

    so this is what you insist was not an inaccurate comparison or referring to a forum member as a marxist:

    Nah,its not about your spelling its about your trying to wiggle and squirm your way out of answering the following question.

    Still awaiting an answer to this.

    So you’re saying that UtahBill has the following qualities “indicating style, manner, resemblance, or distinctive character” to “Karl Maex”?

    Now watch apdst wiggle and squirm in his lame attempt at deflection.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

My g-grandfather came home from work, ate supper, took a bath, went to bed and was gone before the sun came up. He was 74. It's a family tradition. I come from a family of hard workin' self employed folks that always had the inate ability to what we had to do.

    Ultimately, I've made my decisions and I'm the one that has to live with them. cum, ****, or bleed. And, I don't want the government getting up in my ****.
    Ah yes, tradition....my family tree has about a 10 year advantage on yours, and I had planned on beating it by 5 years. Never smoked or drank, no serious genetic issues, only a few pounds over weight, and even my siblings who smoked a long time are relatively healthy. So how did I get chosen to get Parkinson's?

    So much of what you post sounds so uneducated, then you say something that sounds smart. Is your wife helping you?

    Big business has always played an important roll in our economy and should. The problem is when big business uses its money to change ellections so that the new government stops looking after the will of the people.

    e.g. former oil execs should not be in government oversite of their old companies.

    Question: The constitutional freedons President Bush took away.

    Answer: The patriot act took away 4 and 5.

    Question: The constitutional freedom President Obama (then a senitor) took away

    Answer: The first ammendment. FISA bill.

    You asked why I voted for social programs and expect the rich to pay for them. I did not. I vote Libertarian. We had a candidate on all 50 ballets. NO its not a waist of a vote.

    I want a smaller government so that we can ALL pay less in taxes.

    You keep saying the rich pay to much and everyone is taking your money. If you had your way how would you have the income for the government set up. I dont want to know what you dont want or that your upset about the debt. We owe 11 trillion plus. How should we go about paying it off

    This is half-true. Sustainable results are achieved when the product or service has value to the consumer AND provides profit to the business. You need both, and taxes have a direct impact on profit.
