    How the hell are you degraded by the system? Get a new employer, get an education, do something, it is not that hard to make a sensible living in one of the worlds richest countries.

    why isn't that fair. If they want to use as much as some guy paying 500K in taxes its only fair that they pay the same percentage

    of course under MY definition of fairness if that guy who makes 25K a year uses the same amount of services as I do he ought to pay the same AMOUNT of taxes

    When life is unfair, you revolt against unfair conditions, not just hold your dick complacently.
    What would a revolt accomplish exactly? How would the country look if you succeeded?

    I might join you because this country's going to hell. :-)

    He's certainly a capitalist creep, but the bit about thieves was more directed toward people who have employees who work under them. I don't know if Turtle has employees, but if he is not a thief himself, then he supports thieves.

    Because taxation is exactly the same as shopping at Costco according to you Turtle. A high school kid taking Government knows more than you do about the purpose of taxation.

    Nature holds the whip silly. It's not my fault you have to eat and you were born in the most prosperous free nation in human history. Poor you, degraded by having to "work" for a living. holy crap.

    I was not degraded in the least working min wage to help people, and ultimately help society as a whole function, and to help fund my future.

    And what the **** is this? I hired two people today, I'm a thief? I seem to recall that I made a commitment to transfer money from my account, to their account, and that they were quite happy and agreed, I was happy, and the public getting their goods/services was happy. But patria isn't happy Aww.

    You now label that as theft? But you don't label the government, against my will, forcibly taking my income at whatever level it decides to, theft?

    You're doing more to scare me away from liberals than Bush did to scare me away from republicans, how can look at yourself in the mirror spouting this nonsense?

    I see socialism as a more useful way to advance a nation to first world status. Given the choice between living in a stone age society, and living in a modern society, I choose modernity.

    Even so, it wouldn't break and reconstruct the system. Rather than exempt myself, I would rather work to create a society that ends the exploitation of those not lucky enough to be a mamber of the ruling class.

    It's all of the tyranny you oppose from government, except that it comes from the ruling elites.
    So, if I want to get a job & earn a living, I am automatcially considered 'subservient' by you?

    It must be sad to be you.

    That makes absolutely no sense.
