Yes it's good to steal money from people and hand it to others?
And how does that jive with the non-aggression principle ?
Not stealing. All legal.

This is a democracy.

It's the society you and I live in.

Is there somewhere you'd rather live?

You do understand if Medicare pays less other insurance pays more?
If you're the type of consumer who prefers to more
for goods and services, I'm sure the merchants would
be happy to accept the additional funds.

LOL.

Everything in existence is a circle.

The thing to understand is that each circle should ideally be a progression when compared to the previous one.

Geo-political borders are a mischievous device that creates artificial barriers to divide people and to foster unhealthy competition among the various nations besides creating blocs of nations each opposed to the others.

Laws are mental constructs. As mind evolves further, what appears sane and legit today will appear obsolete and superfluous and maybe even outright perverse tomorrow. There's no last word on law and justice.

Translate that into economics. Did the unrecognized groups have to pay their taxes in the meantime?
No.
No harm. Much ado about nothing.
You are a stunning douchbag
its about preferential treatment.

So you are arguing for price fixing which will diminish the quality of service.

Just saying something is legal does not make it right, abortion is legal and I happen to think that it is wrong.
Taking something that isn't yours is wrong, you don't agree?

If you were truely a libertarian, and not one in name only who cherry picks their causes and laws, you would be against the whole idea of the 501C amendment in the first place.
There is no way anyone can provide a convincing argument that either a conservative OR a liberal political advocacy group is a SOCIAL WELFARE (i.e. charity) group.
But you are not a true libertarian. You get pissed when your tribe gets picked on, just like the rest of us. You want special recognition when in fact you should not want recognition at all.
Remember, applying for 501c status is NOT a constitutional RIGHT, its a government PRIVILEGE.
Who said that I am a libertarian?

Your logic goes around in circles, by starting at the foundation of things, is a good start but unfortunately you have no facts.

You also want preferential treatment.

think you should have to.

Providers are not forced to accept any particular type of insurance.

There are providers who do not accept Medicare.

Guess the ones who do are ok with the reimbursement rates.

Healthcare is too expensive in this country. Didn't you know that?

It's ok for you or me to have our opinions on abortion or anything else. Doesn't make any of us wrong or right.

I don't believe taxation is taking something that is "yours" or "mine." It's part of the society in which we all live. I accept that. You evidently don't.
