    that's what you meant to say, right TD?

    you don't advocate using violence to change the govt., when peaceful means are available, right?
    armed rebellion presumes peaceful means are not an option

    So you believe in a armed rebellion against democratically elected people based off the reason of that you dont agree with them? Isnt that, you know, a bit undemocratic?

    Wrong, wrong and more wrong.... not only that, you incorrect, sir. The Bush tax cuts led to a 20% cut in income tax revenues and a income tax revenues and a 10% reduction in the income tax receipts to GDP ratio.

    There really should be a rule that every statement made on this board be supported. Arguing with the ill-informed is a bit like having a fist fight with a psycho.... its not a fair fight for unfair reasons.

    If people were serious about cutting the debt they would let the tax cuts expire and cut spending. But that doesn't get people elected, so what they should do is let them expire, but offer a different tax cut to be signed on Jan 1, 2013 that is inbetween the Bush tax cuts and the normal tax levels.

    So in your humble opinion, if someone is a "moon bat socialist" and is democratically elected and some how the vast majority of the US government is democratically elected and are "moon bat socialists" (dont even know what that means) then we should overthrow them via armed rebellion?
    Tell me... How is that not "undemocratic"?
