    Does it? Given that it's a world where you can't work your way up from the 30K position do you really think the taxes will be well spent?

    Haven't you heard? Taxes are bad. All Libertarians (if they are honestly Libertarians) will be voting for Option A. They lying scum bags who pretend that taxes are bad but really don't feel that way will be voting for Option B.

Do you really want me to proxy vote on your behalf? It isn't exactly fair.
    Since the grade has no affect upon anything other than your mind and it will be obvious that the vote is actually yours and not mine...no there really aren't any consequences of note.

    Yes, because without taxes all publicly funded organizations that benefit us every day will slowly deteriorate, thus leading to a much more dangerous and unstable society. Pay now, benefit later.

    I already explained my lack of voting, and I am quite certain that you are smart enough to get it.

    First off use quoted posts as you are a few posts away and it's hard for people to know who and what you are responding to.

    the existence of taxes does not automatically mean that the revenues generated from the taxes will be put to good use. Do not try to use the current state of the country or world in this mental excessive. It is obvious that the hypothetical world is not the same as our own. When asked the OP noted that one could not work their way up to higher pay with the $30K job. So if that particular principle of our world isn't in play why do you assume that responsible use of tax money (something that is only partially in our world and country) would be occurring?

    Okay. I'll keep looking for relevant petulance. Got any for me?
