    i find it funny how people think that a government letting it's citizens have greater personal freedom is "whoring" itself to them.
    Did I say that? No. Countries are whoring themselves through subsides + lower tax rates. Tells you were the real power is. We won't tax you for 3 years, please come to our country we'll suck... get it.

    being on a list is no better than no surgery because it entails no surgery. getting the surgery is what's important, which is why so many Canucks come down here.

    but we digress - let us get back to discussing how awesome the US is and why we should start drilling everywhere.

    The US is not awesome but a cesspool of corruption from a fascist socialist government seeking to enslave all americans into being obedient workers for their corporate masters (who serve the Socialist state)

    As for drilling everywhere I agree.

    They should start with hand held drills searching for gold in peoples teeth ( gold is valuable right now and can buy a lot of oil. Each and every american should go to the BP drilling center for immediate exploration

    Corps should pay taxes since they benefits from the protections the government provides them as well as trade agreements. But the combinations of Tax cuts + subsides is the problem you twit.

    well, that's what we get for electing a kenyan muslim. we'll elect a Noble Republican next time around and instantly be back in paradise.

    why drill our own when we have a perfectly good military that can just take others? we spent all that money on the dang thing, let's let the military earn some of that money back.

    corporations don't pay taxes - individuals do.

    ... you twit

    well i agree that subsidies should go - all corporate welfare should. that's why I'm glad that the 2012 Republican Budget strips all such measures out of the tax code effective immediately.

    I wish we had a smug asshole depletion machine to help power the world. We could probably power a few states with this thread alone. America.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    communism? not at all. the state has no business running businesses - which is why we should take over these things and then immediately sell them to Americans. let our business community do the collection, exploitation, etc.

    "communism" after all the screams about "oh you can't say that's socialism, nothing is ever ever ever socialism!" you'd think people would be less loose about throwing around the C word.

    you know what? you come from Canada. another C word. AND you have an openly socialist party. ..... alright buddy; are you now or have you ever been....
