    When they go about the ruining the place I live in and call home because of their own short sighted stupidity, hell yes.
     
  2. Combine election day with income tax day;
    no witholding allowed, so bring your completed tax return and your checkbook to the polls and pay up an entire year of income taxes before you can vote. Get arrested on the spot if you haven't paid prior years.

    This might teach voters that elections have consequences which influence how much they have to pay.

    Pay up before you vote!

    I hear what you're saying but you're just wrong on the political philosophy and you're wrong about algebra.

    And the government after them might feel the same way about you. "Killing everyone I disagree with" isn't a political philosophy, it's called being a homicidal maniac.

    Who said anything about killing people they disagree with?

    Someone said something about killing commies and socialists. Dead commies save lives.

    Homicidal maniacs aren't into philosophy, they are into killing because they like it. Try to stay focused. We are discussing fixing what is wrong with the United States. Freeloading give me give me parasites and their treasury raiding elected scum are the points of discussion.

    Is it really worse to kill people you disagree with politically, than to kill unborn babies because it is inconvienent to have them and raise them?

    Given those two choices, I say killing people who disagree with me makes more sense.

    Do you realize that killing people because of their different political views is what every war we have been involved in, including the Civil War, was about?

    Some of our more liberal, agenda-driven friends love the art of misquoting and inserting words like 'all', 'every' to make a point. Nice old radical, fanatical technique. :upeyes:

    You know, the "Ghandi VS Stalin" type graphs are amusing because, in several cases, they leave out a factor that is more important than what they represent.

    They show various leaders as we know them to be after they were elected/assumed power/staged a junta, what ever means.

    What the graphs should show, to have relevance to politics, is what they PROMISED the people BEFORE they assumed power. Knowing what they did after obtaining power is somewhat less important than understanding what the people THOUGHT they were getting.

    So make another, based on what they SAID they would do. Then set it next to the original, add a Z axis, and you can quantify how much of liars they were by connecting their dots.

    I was thinking of the, I thought rather obvious, comparison between what people thought they were going to get versus what they did get as a predictor of the promises that engender support and what believing in those promises actually ends up delivering

    Extremely strict welfare and disability qualifiers.

    Every able bodied human being would work, whether it's picking up trash on the side of the road of scrubbing toilets in goverment buildings.

    1. Impeach/remove hussein from office for not abiding by his oath to uphold the Constitution/Bill-of-Rights

    2. Impeach/remove from office any/all federal/state judges/congressmen/senators/legislators who do not uphold the Constitution/Bill-of-Rights

    3. Overturn the hussein-care health-care bill

    4. Strip the federal reserve of all regulatory power

    5. Impose a flat 10% income tax...no exceptions

    6. CLOSE the border with mexico with troops, deport ALL illegal aliens immediately and remove ALL benefits now provided to illegal aliens until they can all be deported. Kids of illegals born here will NOT be granted citizenship (retroactively).

    7. Rescind affirmative action now...hiring should be based upon merit alone

    8. Welfare recipients must work or perform community service for their benefits. Welfare recipients would 'man' the child-care facilities for other welfare recipients with kids

    If I think of anything else, I'll update my post.

    "Aye, there's the rub...." as the Bard said.

    The effect is real and the results are real, but sadly ignored because people can't put them on their little charts and therefore validate them to their fellow chart readers.
