    Libertarians enjoy being free more than anyone.

    Meh. It's what arguing politics is about. And no not yet. I just got out of IET when my unit just got back from Iraq, so I've not been overseas yet.

    Either way, you work for me and you're dependent on me for your salary. This whole debate has been a question of self responsibility and you've had a public job the entire time. Nice.
    I'm in the reserves. I make $180/month through the army. So, through rough mathematics, you pay me around .0000029315. That must be devastating. If you don't enjoy the military services. I invite you to move to a country without a military. Have fun.

    Completely disingenuous. Speaks volumes about you. You also forgot to mention that you can shop at the PX....
    Again. Army reserves, so I don't get Miltary Health care. Nice try though.

    I, by no means, like the way the current health care is set up. I'll also say, that, until Herman Cain presented his idea to fix the costs of health care on the debate, there was no suggestions at all, regarding health care. Other than the rhetoric "I'm gonna repeal Obamacare"

    So if I received $1,000 worth of care under a universal system and there are 138 million tax payers you would spend $.00007246 on my care if everyone was in the same tax bracket. Seeing that you're in a lower tax bracket you would pay much less than that. The argument works both ways.

    I still invite you to move to a country without a military if you really don't want to pay for it.

    I don't mind paying for national defense. Having trained reserves on hand isn't the same as having a permanent standing army fighting permanent wars.
