You are truly delusional.

While I can't understand why he humors you, it is clear you need to compensate for a wasted life. It's okay, believe that you only have one enemy. It's far better than the paranoia your brethren suffer from. The delusion remains but it will make you feel better.

Carry on, son.

I recognize that reading is a skillset you do not have mastery of but do try to learn what the word 'tried' means.

Keyboard cowboys like you are funny.

Sir William is a lonely, lonely, individual. His anger consumes him and he cannot help but excrete his misery throughout Topix.

By communism, you must mean sharing resources, right? After all, what would our nation be if we had to pool taxes to pay for roads, national defense, police and fire services, education, emergency medical care, etc.?
Selective memory?
From 1791 to 1802, the United States government was supported by internal taxes on distilled spirits, carriages, refined sugar, tobacco and snuff, property sold at auction, corporate bonds, and slaves. In other words, they needed to tax citizens to create a stronger union.
The War of 1812 brought about the nation's first sales taxes on gold, silverware, jewelry, and watches.
In 1862, in order to support the Civil War effort, Congress enacted the nation's first income tax law. It was a forerunner of our modern income tax in that it was based on the principles of graduated, or progressive, taxation and of withholding income at the source. The Act of 1862 established the office of Commissioner of Internal Revenue. The Commissioner was given the power to assess, levy, and collect taxes, and the right to enforce the tax laws through seizure of property and income and through prosecution. The powers and authority remain very much the same today.
In 1913, the 16th Amendment to the Constitution made the income tax a permanent fixture in the U.S. tax system. The amendment gave Congress legal authority to tax income.
Blame Congress for failing you and making you a "victim".
well, watcher, I think you will find that as our FG moved to take over more and more Individuals' and States' POWERS, the need for Federal revenues INCREASED.

if you look at the percentage of poor/disadvantaged citizens, say 100-125 years ago AND the amt of rev grossed by the FG and compared those numbers to today, what do you want to bet that the former is the same (or slightly larger) while the latter is GROSSLY LARGER.

what does that tell you or me or any one with a BRAIN, about the increased involvement/Power of the FG?

here's what it tells ME: in the distant past, People where victims of circumstance and, by THEIR own efforts, they could move UP. TODAY, TOO many have become VICTIMS of so-called Progressive benevolent FG programs and ARE TRAPPED.

during the past few decades and now, the last DECADE(since 2008!), those same Prog benevolent programs have been expanded to INCLUDE 1) MORTGAGES, 2) BANKS, 3) AUTO MNFGS, 4) MEDICAL INSURANCE AND 5) COLLEGE STUDENT AIDE/LOANS.

given the FG's track record AND success rate during the past 100 years, what do you think the status of these new areas of 'Federalization' will be in ten years?

think about this, EVERYONE, children born in POVERTY start life with a millstone around their necks. thru EASY student college loans, now the best and the brightest FROM ALL ECONOMIC CLASSES will start, EVEN THOSE AFTER ESCAPING THE GRASP OF POVERTY!, THEIR careers with the millstone of $26,000(avg.) in FG debt!

that does NOT take into account THEIR portion of the tax burden we've put on them by allowing a $17Plus TRILLION dollar Nat'l Debt!!

the other FG-induced MILLSTONES(shrinking jobs market, increasing number of kids in poverty, stifling energy/envornmental policies, decaying public ed, etc...) only ADD to future generations' BURDENS.

HOW can our Nation possibly SURVIVE?

IT CAN'T...

Since you are a fan of sophomoric humor, I will indulge you. After all your mother and sister indulged my 'meat' last night.

I normally don't find Mexicans women to be worthy of my sexual affection but your family was truly up to the task. I had no idea that Mexican women could be so hot in bed. Tell them that after they get done cutting my home's lawn, I will service them again.

Junior, welcome back, I missed humiliating you.

You failed all of your math classes, right?
what does that tell you or me or any one with a BRAIN, about the increased involvement/Power of the FG?
It is always funny to hear people like you whine about how big government is but then conveniently forget that the nation grew and demands far more services from the government.

If you don't like the government, you do have a couple choices. You can decline your citizenship and move. You can seek office and attempt a change. You can whine and feel like a victim. I see you prefer the latter.
here's what it tells ME: in the distant past, People where victims of circumstance and, by THEIR own efforts, they could move UP. TODAY, TOO many have become VICTIMS of so-called Progressive benevolent FG programs and ARE TRAPPED.
You failed history too, I see.

[
those same Prog benevolent programs have been expanded to INCLUDE 1) MORTGAGES, 2) BANKS, 3) AUTO MNFGS, 4) MEDICAL INSURANCE AND 5) COLLEGE STUDENT AIDE/LOANS.
Yes, the last administration destroyed the nation and many Americans require assistance. You are welcome.
given the FG's track record AND success rate during the past 100 years, what do you think the status of these new areas of 'Federalization' will be in ten years?
I could care less. I don't depend on them. I pay my taxes, serve my nation and enjoy the only life I will have. People like you waste theirs whining endlessly.
think about this, EVERYONE, children born in POVERTY start life with a millstone around their necks. thru EASY student college loans, now the best and the brightest FROM ALL ECONOMIC CLASSES will start, EVEN THOSE AFTER ESCAPING THE GRASP OF POVERTY!, THEIR careers with the millstone of $26,000(avg.) in FG debt!
Again, so what? If you want to enjoy the protection and freedoms of the nation, there is a cost. You are free to move if the cost offends you.
that does NOT take into account THEIR portion of the tax burden we've put on them by allowing a $17Plus TRILLION dollar Nat'l Debt!!
Ah yes, the debt that compounded because the last administration pissed away the good fortune we had. Lie to the world about a war we didn't need, enrich your pals on oil contracts and then leave the house of cards teetering in the wind. That's the Republicant legacy!
the other FG-induced MILLSTONES(shrinking jobs market, increasing number of kids in poverty, stifling energy/envornmental policies, decaying public ed, etc...) only ADD to future generations' BURDENS. HOW can our Nation possibly SURVIVE? IT CAN'T...except as A SHADOW of its FORMER self.
In 2000, things were going pretty well, despite a nation torn by an election that was stolen by a family desperate to keep the oil money flowing. We were attacked by cowards. The world reacted in horror and most offered support and resolve against those who terrorized us. Instead of embracing that goodwill, circling the wagons and investing our efforts into finding those responsible, our President did a 180. He lied to the world and created an unnecessary war. He watched the blood of some of our bravest men and women get shed while his buddies filled their bank accounts.

The debt our nation has is due to your hero. The debt you owe is to mine. My brother and several close friends died in Iraq. I spent two tours there. How about you? Still want to talk about debt?
