    Which is telling other people to do what you want. Which is not you helping those you want to help.

    Actually government funding for aids research is "not telling other people" what to do. Its the public coming in together and funding gov funded research which helps people...

    Lets see, I don't want my money going to aids research (if I did, I would be giving it to them), however the government takes my money, in the form of taxes, and gives it to aids research, how is that not the government telling me what my money should be used for? It is telling me I have to fund aids research. It is not the public coming together, if that were the case individuals would be donating directly instead of the government taking it and then redistributing it. If the public were all together on the subject, there would be no arguments about it's funding.

    P.S. I don't have to take any action to tell my senators and congressman what my stance is, they are already for cutting funding. I guess I could take action and write them a letter congratulating them on doing a good job and to keep up the good work. But, then, I said that to them when I voted for them.

    Welcome to how a civil society is ran. It is telling me I have to fund aids research.

    No, that is how a socialist society is run, not a civil one. A civil one would recognize the individuals right for self-determination.

    I do support mine going to wars.(especially those against socialist) Defense is necessary for the survival of the Nation, aids research is not. We can also accomplish a lot more for a lot more people if we properly used wars than we can funding aids research, including helping fight aids. Unfortunately, since the end of WWII, we haven't shown ourselves to be able to properly manage a war and it's after affects.

    As to corporate handouts, I am not sure what you mean. If you mean the bailouts, I was against them, if you mean tax-breaks, I am against some, for some. But then, I am for a flat tax with minimal deductions for individuals and a graduated tax system for corporations based upon their percentage of profit.

    no in any civilized society even in capitalists ones there is forms of taxation and the scary "redistribution of wealth".

    Well guess what good for you.

    Point being is bud tax dollars being spent cannot make everyone happy. You can agree with some things they go to and disagree with others.

    The only way to stop AIDS is for people to stop acting so stupid. Has anyone ever wondered why HIV and AIDS didn't exist before the 1960s? This is a moral issue, not governmental. They should be protesting themselves. Quite sad, actually!
