    Yep. Also since this was the basis of his argument, he does not actually have one.

    Claiming that I didn't have an argument when you had no proof and by moving goal posts is quite humorous. It also wasn't my argument, but Yourstar's about the effectiveness and reliability of private charities. She also hasn't presented any proof to date.

    I do have proof that you do not have an argument. You have admitted yourself that you cannot provide information to substantiate your claim and instead claim that I must buy a book to prove you right -> http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...post1058858541. Also, I have shown you the initial post in which I asked you to prove your claim and I have shown that I have not moved goal posts as you were responding to LiberalAvenger -> http://www.debatepolitics.com/polls/...post1058858476.

    So I will ask again, can you cite that private charities can keep up with the needs of the financially handicapped?

    I believe I am correct that private charities can not handle the burden. I have to research it, though.
    the political issue is income taxes. that is the tax that is applied at different rates to some and is the political hot potato. Most of those "taxes" aren't at issue involving the poor and the rich in terms of politics

    No they can't do anything like that. I'm white, and I'm getting food stamps, and they have many laws on the books stopping such discrimination. Getting welfare is based on need, and nothing else.
    why? I am still waiting for you to provide a rational argument why I have a duty to support your existence by force. Your existence does not benefit me so why should I be forced to pay for your inability to provide for yourself?

    No matter how much you Libertarians moan and groan, you still you have to pay your taxes, or go to jail.

    that's a great argument in a forum like this

    we will tell all the gays that they shouldn't argue for marriage since most states don't allow it

    all the gun haters can take a hike because the supremes slapped them around twice

    great intellectual premise there
