But didn't the lawmakers vote to spend it on something else?
Should one group of lawmakers be bound by another group of lawmakers who are no longer in office?
What if the taxpayers want their money spent elsewhere and direct their representatives to do it? Is that not their right to have their views represented?
When a company's owners decide their money is better spent bonusing the CEO than building a new factory why are they wrong? It's their money.
Getting to the point now, IF more of society were just like you are (and lets not forget CF in this) in your law enforcement grudge. I would spite the Constitution and do everything in my power to see that your protections were stripped away as soon as possible. I would do this just to throw it in your face because I could. I LOVE the Constitution BTW, I just really dislike dirtbags like yourself. -- BlackPaladin
