    Apparently we were discussing something different than the topic. That's the conversation I'm following. Is this really that important? Let it go.

    The more money I have the more votes I get? Glad I have citizenship in another nation because we may need to be moving soon if your mindset becomes the American standard.

    well it seems fair to me that if one percent of the population should bear responsibility for paying for 75% of the government services, they should have far more say in how those services are allocated than the freeloaders who suckle on the public teat while doing nothing to pay for the government

    Back at you.

    What, you think they don't? I'd say that more like 90% of the politicians represent them first and foremost. But, really, that sounds fair to you?

    What version of "fair" leaves so many with so little and others with more than they could ever use? What fair system allows the poor to toil and die for the benefit of a few? I think you are obviously defining fairness in parallel with a pre-conceived might makes right mentality rather than any human rights perspective. It's so typical for conservative thinkers to value an entitlement to property over an obligation to people, why should you even be aware of why it's shameful?

    Some times I'm shocked at the things you write. It's as if you are oblivious and apathetic to human need. It's no wonder our country has become a fascist **** hole under republican rule. Conservatives are too comfortable with cruelty, way too comfortable.
