    So how do the people collecting the taxes acquire the authority to do so, when if you or I did the same thing we would be said to be stealing? Who gives them the authority? Those collecting the taxes are people just like you and me, right? What is so special about them that gives them the moral authority to do what you and I are forbidden from doing?

    I'm pretty sure Jesus wouldn't and didn't take a political stance other than to dismiss anything the government does as not relevant.

    He's most definitely not a liberal. Anyone that thinks Jesus was for government forced charity doesn't know the Bible.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    By the authority of a sovereign government.

    when if you or I did the same thing we would be said to be stealing? Who gives them the authority?
    Because if you started collecting taxes from people and your not the government your expropriating money from people... illegally. What's so hard about this.

    Those collecting the taxes are people just like you and me, right? What is so special about them that gives them the moral authority to do what you and I are forbidden from doing?[/QUOTE]

    They have no moral authority.. oh wait they do, they are the government and they govern and collect taxes as people have since the origin of organised society.

    Do you know what government is?
    Do you know how property functions?

    No matter how I look at your question there is no grounds for it.

    As for government I seriously doubt you understand how it functions It's cited as the main reason for the inability of the US to elect effective leadership or enact functional legislation. Other than bills removing the rights of Americans on a virtually unanimous basis.

    Money is not property. Let's not make everyones head spin

    There are no grounds for a multitude of libertarian arguments. As for my question, you cannot print your own currency... it is in a binding contract we as american were born into.

    Umm what? First, what in the hell are you talking about, and second, how does that answer my question? I asked you what government IS, NOT how it functions or if you understand how it functions.

    Money is property.

    I never said I wanted to print my own money nor does that have anything to do with it. Why is it that every time I talk to you all I get is emotion and strawmen?
