    I'm not redefining anything. It IS perfectly proper to use it in both situations.

    It's not about consent. I's about the tax amendment. You have no say in the matter other than trying to overturn the amendment and good luck with that one.

    So if I vote for someone then I consent to everything he could do based on beliefs that I may or may not be aware of. That is complete hogwash and you know it.

    No thats not it but since we are a representative democracy you basically give your vote to each candidates platform. Most politicians play into the trustee model of representation.

    Yes, its about an amendment that allows the government to reach into your income and claim ownership of it and treat the rest like its a gift to you. In effect they are breaching your right to gain from your labor.

    Lets say I believe your story and lets say that if you vote for someone you consent to their platform. What if I don't vote for that person? Do I still consent to have my property stolen?
