    It may blow you're mind that I'm aware of what fiat is...

    Centinel, I don't think his 5th grade civics teacher has told yet him why he believes what he believes.
    Someone didn't take 5th grade civics and believes a government steals when it levys a tax.

    You continue to claim that some people (the government) have some sort of exemption from the commandment Thou shalt not steal, yet you offer no justification for this divine right other than that these people are the government.

    So let me recap your "argument":
    Some people (the government) have the power to levy taxes, an act which, if done by you or me, would be called stealing.
    Why do these people have this special power?
    Because they are the government.

    Again, I ask you, where do these special people get the authority to levy taxes, an act which you and I clearly may not do. Why do these special people not need to abide by Thou shalt not steal?

    I didn't realize the ten commandments were the divine law of the USA.

    yet you offer no justification for this divine right other than that these people are the government.
    I don't have to. I can merely stay here and bask in the glow of reality while you froth away.

    Why can the cops murder me for trying to murder other people... I don't get this.

    I don't know if you think you sound intellectual or deep on a fundamental level of somesort.

    This is plain moronic.

    Okay. I see you are out of ideas, so you resort to name calling.

    Well, if you ever figure out how some people come by the divine right to rule over others, let me know. I'll consider your claim unsupported until you, you know, make an actual argument.

    You're right, that actually really does blow my mind. You never would've been able to guess that based on the things you say.

    Curious this, that the government isnt criminal for collecting taxes. What a mad traitor to the people I must be.

    What a wonderful understanding of how you hold the government responsible that you have there.
