    Even far-right conservatives want some taxation. I know very little who want 0% tax in any area. So really they don't think people "should be able to keep income they have earned".

    Turtledude is honest in this regard, and I like that.
    "that taxes should be collected to operate the government and affairs of state"

    Missed that part did ya?

    So here is the plan:

    • Next year we raise the taxes on the rich to 100%. That oughta bring the deficit down.
    • So the following year the "rich" will all be broke so they won't have to pay any taxes. That should make them happy.
    • And since those former rich bastards are now broke and unemployed, they will be collecting Unemployment Benefits (which Pelosi assures us in the BEST way to inject money into the economy!!!)


    Lordy. This plan looks like a WIN/WIN situation for everybody....!!!!!


    .
    Yes, clearly you can extrapolate someone's argument to an absurd degree and be intellectually honest! My turn!

    You support lower taxes.
    Therefore, you also support making tax rates 0%.
    Therefore, you support disbanding the United States government entirely, at every level, plunging the Territory Formerly Known As The United States into total anarchy, central Africa style.
    Therefore, you support the consequences of this zero tax rate, which includes more people dying from violence, including children.
    Therefore, you support the murder of children.

    Weeeeeee!

    Wait, what does the government exist for, if not to serve the people?

    Are you saying we don't have those inalianable rights?

    What country do you live in? One where healthcare, a job, a house, an education, and food is a right?

    I have looked and looked and cannot find those rights you previously listed in the Constitution.

    Well it depends on your vision now doesnt it? Government wasnt created to be a welfare/nanny state. Thats been a Democrat party philosophy (and its worked SO WELL...hasnt it...) but has had no basis in the origins of the country or foundation of the government. The fed wasnt established to take care of the people. Or maybe I missed it where they established health care...welfare, or any of the other handout programs. Point of fact I believe the founders would have puked their guts out at the thought of so many pathetic crippled and dependent pets running around begging for the government to take care of them. Government serves the people best when it does its job and stays out of the way of the private sector.

    Not to sound judgmental, but if someone cannot find a job in 2 years I am suspicious about just how hard they are looking....


    .
    Amazing, so you think there are jobs under every bush and tree in America? I am retired for 7 years now, the first year I went looking for a job but got nothing. I have skills, but I also have AGE. Finallyl, I just retired, at age 57. Good thing I was prepared for it and my wife had a good job. But back then people who had lost their jobs were competing then with new entries to the job market, like college grads. Now, even recent grads aren't finding jobs.
    If you know where the jobs are, tell people about them....

    Isn't the right to life the right to food, shelter and healthcare? All three of those guarantee such a right. Though education is not covered, do you think it should be privatized? If it is done so, the poor class wouldn't be able to afford it, the majority of labor would be unskilled and more jobs would be outsourced.
