    Utah, nice strawman. How can I climb it though? I don't happen to have a ladder on hand so can you tax someone so I can get one? Thanks in advance.

    No, its meant to be accurate. Government IS force, and unless you can justify the use of force for the sake of your political agenda, wealth redistribution you are a liar.

    I would never support any law that wasn't worth enforcing, you are quick to.



    Thats always the answer for your lot, if ya don't like it leave. No, given that your lot doesn't respect state's rights and would have the federal government enforce your redistribution of wealth changing states would make little difference. This is a democracy, its better to try to change bad laws than give up this once great country or states to looters like you.
    Your post does not even make sense given that I have asked you to review the thread and your misinterpretation of my earlier statement was cleared up long ago. But for some reason, and we can only guess what that might be, you insist on pretending that you do not know the reality of what I have said nor do you care to shift gears after you got stuck in the mud.

    btw - this IS NOT A DEMOCRACY. Its a democratic republic.

    You might have a case of America circa 1787. However, the last 200 years have seen many changes bringing parts of democracy into our system and changing the fundamental nature of it.

    As proof I would advise you to look at hundreds, perhaps thousands of posts from right wingers lamenting this reality. You could also compare the America of 1787 to that of today for an additional dose of reality.

    Using force to take what doesn't belong to you is the law of the jungle. What one does with the loot does not justify the initial act of aggression. If you wish to take care of the poor or elderly do it on your own dime, not with other people's property.

    The US may have done better in the long run as a confederacy.

    I'm well aware of what people like yourself have attempted to do. That doesn't change what the country actually is.
