    However that will do them no good because we now have a super majority factor to deal with because of the republicans abusing the filibuster. This will come back to haunt them. Karma's a bitch.
    remind me about which party-for the first time in history, blocked an appellate judge even though he was given the ABA's top rating and all four former living dem appointed solicitor generals supported his appointment.

    in the long run, irresponsible spending and trying to buy the votes of people like you by pandering to class warfare is gonna hurt the dependent class the most. rich people can move or engage in tax avoidance strategies, Untalented and unproductive people are pretty much dependent on others

    People like me? Explain? What do you personally know about me. Is that like a Ross Perot, "You people"?

    When you call me unproductive, it proves you know very little about me or my personal life to pass such a judgement.

    I don't like to brag about my personal life or success in life but if I did you would be in for a big surprise because you are dead wrong about me.

    Re: Is Taxation Slavery?

    Libertarians are really such clowns when it comes to taxation.. first they cry about taxes.. Then cut taxes for wealthy by implementing a flat income tax.. Which in turn actually raises taxation for the working poor who represent a larger percent of the population.. What a confused bunch of starry eye free market utopians.

    I clearly indicated libertarians. They are usually the first ones to make analogies comparing taxation to slavery or embezzlement. I would have thought that was self evident.

    Are you implying that I'm a libertarian? This is why I asked who you were directing your comment to.

    I think you may be confusing libertarians with some other ideology.

    Well it isn't unusual for someone who is "very conservative" to secretly be libertarian on cutting taxes,pro deregulation, decentralised small government etc.. if not you have my sincere apologies, I wouldn't admit to being one ether.

    I'm a Constitutionalist and have said so many times. Being a Constitutionalist means that I don't follow the libertarian ideals of anarchism, but follow the ideals of the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of my state of residence. I believe that there should be a government because James Madison said it best, "If men were angels there would be no need for government."

    Re: Is Taxation Slavery?

    I do not believe taxation to be a form of slavery. I base this on the idea of the social contract: people leave the state of nature and give rights to a government to maintain social order. I live in the United States. I have the right to leave the U.S. if I do not agree with the taxes. Yes, one could argue people are forced through coercion to pay taxes, but I also have the ability to work towards a tax system I agree with.
