    As usual, no vote.
    Maybe this is necessary, maybe its not.
    I do not know.
    Does anyone ?

    Why do conservatives hate taxes so ?
    Better question..
    Why are they so narrow minded and miserly?
    I am trying to be nice and not nasty - which is far easier.
    Does Ebenezer Scrooge come to mind??

    Doesn't matter. A lot of people don't get benefits for the taxes they pay. They are forced to pay for someone else, with government as a conduit.

    I think Libs should have to pay it... at least once they should know what it's like to be a tax target.

    Enjoy... and we'll add more for you in the future.

    It's not. There is no maybe about it. The United States has its own laws and taxes. We don't need people from other countries telling us what to do with OUR money.

    What are you babbling about? I'm a citizen of the United States of America. My family and friends and countrymen reside in the USA. My loyalty is to MY country and MY Constitution, both of which are stained with the blood sacrifice of my forefathers. I am not part of a global community, and neither are you, as there is no such thing; it's just a silly abstraction which was made up by Hollywood cry-babies and simpering main-streamers.

    I have no meaningful connection to people in Saudi Arabia or France or Germany, so there's no reason for me or my country to submit to their collective authority or taxation.

    The power to tax is the power to destroy.

    People that remain ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it. Why don't UN lovers learn history?

    They're not.

    Better question:

    Why do socialists preach love and peace and goodness, then spend all their time trying to steal money they didn't earn?

    Because they're flippin' hypocrites, is why.

    Sure.

    Ebeneezer Scrooge was paying market wages to his employees. Explain why he should pay more without imposing your arbitrary moral standards on his actions.

    NO! The World is corrupt. The Un is corrupt. The UN charter is dictatorial and takes away individual rights. So, until I see a governing document that is as well written to protect the rights of individuals from government corruption as our own Constitution does, I will not support any World Government; unless other countries wish to become member states of the US.

    Unfortunately you are paying taxes towards the upkeep and continued operations of the UN, we all are.

    But as you so correctly pointed out we get no benefit from the UN.

    More neo-liberal grabs for power. This kind of thing is inevitable. I don't support it. NO is my emphatic answer.

    If there is a global tax - the U.S. should be exempt. We already give billions of dollars of our money so that dozens of countries can have a few of the benefits they take for granted.
