    It's time to burn it. I'm surprised anyone who can afford to pay a tax attorney has to pay any taxes at all with all the loopholes allowed to special interest groups. That's why I'm all for Ryans proposal to lower corporate taxes at the same time he does away with the loopholes. Revenue would shoot through the roof.
    Actually he claims it will be revenue neutral. I heard him say that.

    It means they intend to give a dollar in tax cuts for every dollar of spending cut.

    Just like they've been doing.

    Which will keep the deficit/debt exactly the same.

    Requiring more cuts.

    This is obviously the mechanism they intend to use to drown the federal baby in the bathtub, then throw it out.

    The only way an unborn baby can be a parasite is in the cases of parasitic twins.
    Technically, biologically, the fetus takes from the host and gives nothing in return.

    To a pure atheist (which I am not) this IS how a fetus is defined.

    And since no one knows for sure what's going on in the universe, their opinion on the matter is just as valid as yours.

    Pat Toomey
    Mike Lee
    Nikki Haley
    Mo Brooks
    Ron Johnson
    Marco Rubio
    Kristi Noem

    For a group that was "extreme across the board" it shouldn't be hard to tell us specifically why you feel a good handle of them I just listed aren't extreme.

    If you want to concede that those aren't extreme, you could list me the ones you do think are extreme and see if your lists and what I can generate seems to suggest extremism "across the board" of their candidates.

    I don't know bit buying tea at the store and dumping it on the ground wasn't emulating the Boston Tea Party.

    It was littering and wasting food.

    I know this is futile, but do you have evidence that these folks started the tea party?


    Didn't think so.

    These things lead you to believe i am a "far right winger"?

    Please do you really want to hitch your wagon to the likes of haymarket?

    I have an open challenge to him to prove i am an "extreme right winger".... Thus far he is an abject failure.


    So i kick the question to you.


    How is the GOod REverend an "extreme right winger"?


    I do not deny that many of my positions are right wing but this idiptic mouth foaming that i am some sort og extremist is intellectually lacking and dishknest in nature.

    I wont hold my breath.
    I stand partially corrected.

    My statement was based on what I've seen of your positions here.

    And your tendency to jump in in support of right positions when they are being successfully argued against.

    I was expressing my impression of you that I have gathered over the past several months.

    I just must not have run across your support of the issues you mention, because I DO remember those sorts of things, where I agree with those I usually disagree with.

    I really wasn't trying to offend, just giving my perspective on a comment that sounded strange to me.

    Links. I tend to have my own positions, the success of other posters is irrellevant to my posts... Any examples?

    I think you have been influenced by some unintelligent people who put thier politics before rational thought. Get to know me you will see, I hold some socially conservative values personally but am politically libertarian, i.e. I may personally believe in marriage is between man and a woman, but it's none of my business nor is it my right to impose this view upon others as it deprives them of thier human rights. Which is why for example I support the government only register "civil unions" and get out of the marriage business all together.

    I also don't believe every left winger is an "extremist" like some here on the left do of the right (this thread). You got caught up in haymarket's typical game of making false claims about me then running scared when asked to back it up. Like I said, don't hitch your wagon to that is my advice.
