Where do you get off thinking that they don't have the right to take a portion of your money and spend it? You might not like it but they have every right to it as long as you live here.
Social Security is all ready screwed. The money they claim is being put away for your retirement is being spent.
And where do they get off thinking they have the right to take my money and save it on my behalf? I would imagine Ron Paul believes that people should be able to do what they want with their money.
At this rate we can also say the government has the right to do whatever it pleases simply because they hold the largest stick. Governments can go fuck themselves; I made my money, no one else has any right to it whatsoever.
yeah I hate old and disabled people too! WOO
"I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."
Forcing an individual to live for the sake of another is so morally objectionable that I nearly vomit just thinking about.
Please tell me you're a Christian. I need a laugh.
I bet you he is more honest than that.. in intent at any rate. But I very clearly understand you. I've seen it so many times before with ppl. blatantly wanting and calling it both ways. For a good number of reasons and situations, laws and so on.
I should say I like Ron Paul. More than his son actually. I would not vote for him. But lately I'm disturbed, not because of my latent conservative or even not so suppressed Libertarian views, but actually my worry that Obama's just plain falling into line with the republocrat status quo. His big contribution was health care, and we for example still got Gitmo. I understand some things..but I am not feeling the contrast.
I tell you I like Ron Paul?
