    Yep, and the more you allow them to take the more control they have to spend the money differently that you would which just allows you to whine more about the need to tax others more so the govt. has more money to waste. You seem to lack basic logic, I am convinced that even you can spend your money better than a bureaucrat can spend your money and get better results.

    Until Congress comes up with legitimate methods to eliminate the hundreds of billions of dollars in deficit spending we already have, I oppose extending all the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts.
    At least you are consistent.

    too many with the means which some seem so intent on getting their mitts on aren't willing to play

    if you want to speak of logic, where is the logic in giving the rich another tax cut? it obviously hasnt done what you claimed it would do...WHERE ARE THE JOBS CONSERVATIVE, WHERE ARE THE JOBS?

    Could you put up a link to support your claims about the rich now vs. when the draft was in place ?

    You say you served more. I didn't ask you how long you served, but thank you for the service. What I asked for was a link to support your earlier claim.

    Now its two claims waiting to be substantiated.

I don't know why I waste my time defending you and your right to keep more of what you earn. You want to give it away, do it, but stop promoting the govt. taking it and doing what they want with it.
    Show me a republican war that hasn't played a huge part in destroying our economy, killing off thousands of our young, increasing the national debt, etc. Both sides are to blame, no doubt. BTW, I suppose when you get old enough, you will turn down social security?

    Apparently you don't know taxes at all, Income taxes do not pay for roads, schools, law enforcement, fire, trash collection. That is what excise taxes on gasoline and property taxes were supposed to pay. This seems to be the root of your problem.

    Income taxes fund the following

    Defense
    International Affairs
    Gen. Science, Space
    Energy
    Natural resources/env
    Agriculture
    Commerce
    Transportation
    Community Dev
    Education/Train/Social
    Health
    Veterans Benefits
    Justice
    General Govt.
    Net Interest

    Hopefully the govt will spend it on improving infrastructure, jobs, education in the USA, instead of destroying some sandpit in the middle east...
