Explain to me how penalizing working people by confiscating part of their income, so that it may be given away to someone else, is helping them.
That sounds like theft to me. If you or I did it, it would be a crime and we'd go to jail. If the government does it, it's somehow perfectly okay.

Again, no body YOU KNOW. Here is the challenge to you liberals, this includes YOU ARTSYGUY:

Come with me, for ONE night. ONE NIGHT and ride with me. I'll show you THOUSANDS of people who are on welfare WHO WANT IT, LIVE WITH IT, and ARE HAPPY WITH IT. Morever, have no wants or desires to end it.You and your liberal ilk are FOOLS and you are bankrupting this country.

I'll GURANTEE NO ONE will take me up on my proposal. NOT ONE LIBERAL/SOCIALIST. None of you. Because you are all liars and feel gooders. You don't care what the truth is; as long as you feel good and don't have to shave your armpits, you are happy.

Again, challenge me. The challenge is here, in the open, no questions asked. I'll show you grandma, et al on welfare, who have never worked a day in their lives and never will; morever, REFUSE too. Come on liberals, you say I am a liar, prove me wrong.

The challenge is here, its in the open. Prove me wrong.

If it's theft, then press charges against the thief.

I'm being penalized because my tax money is being "confiscated" to pay for two wars and two nation building projects that i don't agree with and never supported. As far as i'm concerned, the people who endorse this confiscation are all thieves too.

If you're in the bottom 48% of the work force don't worry, your money didn't go to the wars at all.
