    what is unbelievable is that this is the response you give...seriously, read my post, then think about it....is an inventor/entreprenuer/ visonary going to be able to everything necessary to bring their product/idea/innovation to market by themselves? or are they going to require laborers at some point? now please dispense with the snarky replies, and answer my question. no need to insult everyone you disagree with, we have enough of those around here already.

    My version of government is the same as yours. I just want different laws than the looters want. I want to eliminate laws that take money from one person and give to another. I want to preserve laws that protect people's life, liberty, and property. Then a hell of a lot less taxes will be required.

    STOP!!!! BUT TAXES WILL STILL BE REQUIRED.....so you are willing to tax to fund your version of what the government should be, so you admit that your VERSION will require funds to operate....soooooo.....you are no better than those you call 'looters', 'muggers', so you will be taking anothers 'property' to fund your VERSION of what government should be....how ironic, you are no better then those you rail against.

    I have some questions about this post.

    "The government taking money from me to give to you is just as much theft as you holding a gun to my head and taking it for yourself"

    I am quoteing you am I not?

    However if this is true and since money as no label on it, then the tax cuts for the rich could very well come from taxes I've paid , or it could have come from some poor working stiff that paid in and got nothing back . or the so called bailouts, loans and reserch grants could have came from Social Security that too would be considered THEFT would it not?

    If I gamble and win a million dollar lottery the IRS. would be right there even if I died before it was cashed the IRS would be there collecting money from the person I left it to with that would be a person with an inheritance , would not that be theft as well??

    In my case I would not complain ,I'm sure the biggest part of my taxes would go to the biggest tax spender the Defence Department keeping America safe.
    That is unless you want everybody to pay less taxes to the Defence Department??
    In my opinion that would be a bad idea.

    I'd be fine with those who would rather that their life, liberty, and property NOT be protected by any particular government to forego those services and keep their taxes. No skin off my back. I'm not really into forcing other people to do what I want.

    so let me understand this rant of yours

    you want all wealth to be destroyed after someone dies or just the property of the rich. I have often termed left wing views on wealth as "economic vandalism" and that seems to sure fit my definition. Pest control? I think that term is best reserved for the parasites who want to take the wealth of others and the pimps in political office who pander to them

    It's reassuring to know that most americans still believe that We The People should be the chief executors of our accumulated assets even in death, rather than having government confiscate them for scrupulous politicians to buy votes with or waste on $800 toilet seats.

    Half the people in the United States are presently paying all the bills and when this nation reaches the tipping point, those who pay nothing will demand that they pay more and more by means of an unjust democracy at a ballot box they will soon control.

    Those who keep the lights turned on, the gears greased and the wheels of industry turning, which creates jobs for the masses, may be forced to relocate off shore to nations where their accomplishments and services are appreciated as has already been happening as of late.

    The fact that we presently have an Administration in power that continues to grow the dependent half of the population while demanding ever more from the decreasing half, suggests that this Administration is either ignorant of the obvious or 100% aware of what it is doing.

    The United States now rests in the hands of the ever increasing number of non-producers whose survival is dependent upon government entitlements as payment for their votes__Their future generation's disappointment will be legendary when they realize the utopia promised is in reality a totalitarian nightmare.
    Not being sarcastic here but is the following fact true or false?

    The more people that have jobs the more people paying taxes , the more people paying taxes the less taxes people will have to pay.

    This is the reason you are going to be so surprised when the GOP loses in November. You refuse to admit what the majority of the county is already aware, lack of income and 30 years of excessive military spending and optional wars create debt, which the GOP then expects the seniors and middle class to be on the hook for.

    There is no benefit for the middle class or the economy to keep voting for the tax cuts for the rich and increased military spending that simply increase the debt we are then responsible for. This will become more apparent to you in November.

    They are not giving it to me, they blew it on the GOP war in Iraq and asking me to be responsible for it, so **** them and the tax cuts for the rich they rode in on!
