    NO NO NO NO NO

    What I am asking you is to explain to me and everyone here just how this entire NET TAXPAYER thing is computed. HOW is it done. What is measured? How are all taxes accounted for? How are all services accounted for? How are the various differences in people and what services they use accounted for?

    I want to know the details of how this definition is arrived at.

    You see I wanted to find out for myself but I went to Wikipedia and put in NET TAXPAYER and there is no such thing there.

    Between this, the "Islam isn't a real religion," and the militant veganism, dude, you're about as fringe as it gets.

    The "view of the independent," indeed.
    I don't have to say it. The polls already have.

    As for "Islam isn't a real religion", that's been said by billions of people around the world for 1400 years. What else is new ? The latest and most prestigious group to say it (link included) is the all-star writer cast of The Center for Security Policy's new book > "Shariah : The Threat To America".

    They are :

    MEMBERS OF TEAM B II
    Team Leaders


    LIEUTENANT GENERAL WILLIAM G. “JERRY” BOYKIN
    US Army (Ret.), former Deputy Undersecretary of
    Defense for Intelligence

    LIEUTENANT GENERAL HARRY EDWARD SOYSTER
    US Army (Ret.), former Director, Defense Intelligence Agency
    Associates

    CHRISTINE BRIM
    Chief Operating Officer, Center for Security Policy

    AMBASSADOR HENRY COOPER
    former Chief Negotiator, Defense and Space Talks, former Director,
    Strategic Defense Initiative

    STEPHEN C. COUGHLIN, ESQ.
    Major (Res.) USA, former Senior Consultant, Office of the Joint Chiefs
    of Staff

    MICHAEL DEL ROSSO
    Senior Fellow, Claremont Institute and Center for Security Policy

    FRANK J. GAFFNEY, JR.
    former Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy
    (Acting), President, Center for Security Policy

    JOHN GUANDOLO
    former Special Agent, Counter-Terrorism Division, Federal Bureau of
    Investigation

    BRIAN KENNEDY
    President, Claremont Institute

    CLARE M. LOPEZ
    Senior Fellow, Center for Security Policy

    ADMIRAL JAMES A. “ACE” LYONS
    US Navy (Ret.), former Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Fleet

    ANDREW C. MCCARTHY
    former Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney; Senior Fellow, National Review
    Institute; Contributing Editor, National Review

    PATRICK POOLE
    Consultant to the military and law enforcement on anti-terrorism issues

    JOSEPH E. SCHMITZ
    former Inspector General, Department of Defense

    TOM TRENTO
    Executive Director, Florida Security Council

    J. MICHAEL WALLER
    Annenberg Professor of International Communication, Institute
    of World Politics, and Vice President for Information Operations,
    Center for Security Policy

    DIANA WEST
    author and columnist

    R. JAMES WOOLSEY
    former Director of Central Intelligence

    DAVID YERUSHALMI, ESQ.
    General Counsel to the Center for Security Policy

    And here's a copy paste from 2 different pages of the book where they say it :

    On page 30 > "Today, we are facing an internal threat that has masked itself as a religion (my emphasis) and that uses the tolerance for religious practice guaranteed by the Constitution’s First Amendment to parry efforts to restrict or prevent what amount to seditious activities".

    Again, on Page 229 (and the title of Chapter 7) > "THE U.S. AND WESTERN VULNERABILITIES
    TO A THREAT MASQUERADING AS A RELIGION.............229"

    As for the militant veganism, those are your words not mine. I'm not really militant about being a vegetarian, but if all vegetarians were "fringe", that would be a heck of a good fringe.

    It would be nice if you did not use falsehoods mixed in with the over the top hyperbole.

    No, I don't predate the New Deal, but I'm old enough to be the grandfather of some of the BS rich dems of today. I'm 65.

    Yep, that one but how does that change the results from the latest census and all the lost population in high tax states? Seems that the messenger is a lot more important than the message when it comes to messages like this one.

    I see no evidence in that opinion piece that showed people had moved because of low taxes. Did I miss that evidence? Could you present it again for me please?
