Better yet. Why should any portion of my tax money go towards rebuilding someone else's nation, when we have communities here that need to be rebuilt? Why should any portion of my tax money go towards paying lifetime compensation for the incompenent idiots that placed or economy where it is today.

Liberals (for the most part) want to centralize power and create a modern slavery system. Put in a ****load of tax money and get little in return. They want to destroy the free market, and offer goods and services directly through the federal government (healthcare, welfare, etc).

And as long as they keep the poor and/or minorities in this never-ending cycle of entitlement programs, they'll have the votes to stay in power...

This is the biggest load of crap. Republicans held Congress for 12 years, so why why why didn't they resolve ANY of what you babbled about above? Last I checked in the historical archives, entitlement programs were just as strong then as it is now. Oh and by the way, Federal Government GREW during the Bush years, so yet again, more babble.

Thats the problem with the scripted response from some of your right wingers, YOU can NEVER back up the scripted babble without appearing like an hypocrit.

Now, and before it gets started, I'll be honest and up front. NO. I don't care about you. Health care is NOT a right. I believe in Charles Darwin: Survival of The Fittest. If you cannot think, breath, and have a life in this world, then YOU are waste of oxygen and should die. Yeah, let me have it, I don't care. No one care about me, if I were sick, etc. So, why should I care about you?

Child care? You spread your legs, you put it in her. Why should I pay for the kids, YOU did not plan for? Why should my tax dollar go for your kids education, a babysitter, et al? Shouldn't have YOU planned for that, before you had sex? Why is it MY problem, you are irresponsible?

I am serious, I want to know your responses? It would be nice, to hear them, without the slamming/slagging, etc. It won't happen, however, bring it on.

Cop salaries are the biggest waste. There's crime everywhere. Cops are just do-nothings living off of the taxpayer dollars. They should end crime or give their salaries back.

Except for why would they try to end crime, since the courts have said that police are not here for the protection of the American citizens. Basically they are only here to take care of the criminal, after a crime has already been committed. Kind of hard to stop crime, when that isnt your job.

I don't give a f--k about you paying for my own or anyone else's health care. I do give a f--k about the fact that both my girlfriend (who has diabetes ) and my mother(who beat cancer) are unable to purchase their own health care because of pre-existing medical conditions that were no fault of their own--and this is due to a stupid outdated health care system that has decided that it's not cost effective to insure them.

Were you complaining about our military and defense industry entitlement programs for the last 60 years? How about corporate wealthcare? How come when it comes to tax dollars people act like they are the only m-f-ers paying?

Back off, hawk...

I'm trying to make as much sense as the OP here, alright?

Why should my tax dollars go to paving roads that I do not use because I utilize public transportation, mainly the subway system. Why should my tax dollars go to firefighters when I never had a fire? Why should my tax dollars go to a library if I use it infrequently and choose to buy books instead? Because I live in a society and the education, safety and health of that society has an affect on me. Whose healthcare are you directly paying for?

Do you have documentation showing that 50.1% of liberals support that?

I personally haven't heard anyone mention slavery in the democratic leadership. I have heard them mention that taxes should be raised on the top 10% of earners, to equal what they were under the Clinton administration. But I don't remember slaves in 1997.

Of course there isn't any documentation. Why would they let the facts get in the way?
