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.
Who are you talking to?

So again, why should I pay for your health care, because you are poor?

And, once again, for everyone else who has slammed me, of course you can't answer my question. You just slam me. You still haven't answered why my tax dollar should go to your health care or child care? Except the fact you are lazy and don't/didn't plan for your life. So you want to screw the rest of us.

So please, tell me, once again, WHY I should pay for healthcare? Why should I pay for YOUR childcare? WHY? I am waiting...
How much of your tax dollar goes to welfare? You're upset enough that I'll bet you know down to the penny. How much?

Teachers, postal workers etc. And you can't blame them for that. They just want to make sure the government is here to provide them livelihood.
Ah, so it is a matter of job security?

I know this is hard but these people also pay taxes.

So, no, it isn't a matter of job security. It is by and large trying to get A,B, and C done. And then deal with whatever little rogue cowboy that is elected with the brain size of a gnat. The very same person that tells the general public how they are going to change the world without even knowing how it works or having researched it prior to implementing procedures that actually end up costing more.

Did you want to discuss state and local government or can you tell the difference?

OP:

Your comparison to roads makes no sense. What you're saying is basically if you shouldn't have to pay for health care, then you shouldn't have to pay taxes on roads.

You might as well say "I don't care about those people in Alabama who need an Interstate 22, why should I pay for them? They can walk. According to Darwinism, they're just stupid for choosing to live in a place where the Interstate system is not up-to-date, so they are a waste of fuel therefore should walk."

My assumption is that you are a middle-aged (or older) person who will eventually die off, leaving one less bigot in the world for the more generous younger generations (such as myself) to deal with. Societies work better when people help each other out.

I was just trying to say that attacking GWB was not helping. That's all.
