From Yahoo Answers: "If Republicans Hate Taxes So Much Why Don't They Move To Somalia?"

More: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Ah7k.UehtV53EFblEuWhVrMjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20110131224154AA4FhRn

OP: "A perfect example of a nation that functions well without taxes, Republicans wouldn't have to complain about welfare or paying for education there! It's not communist, fascist, or socialist like Canada or the UK. You can also own as much guns as you want!"

Top Answer: "The benefit of no taxes and freedom to carry guns isn't greater than the cost of submitting to a warlord + the chance of getting randomly shot and killed. Therefore, republicans don't move to Somalia."

Other answers:

Answer 1: "What nonsense. Republicans don't hate taxes, they hate unfair taxes. They also hate big government that wants to take one working Americans money to give it to someone else often either illegal aliens, non working lazy Americans, political supporters, or foreign countries.
Seriously why should a working Americans money go to paying for someone else's children who refuses to work and better themselves and expect someone else to pick up the tab? Why should a working Americans taxes go for providing a lazy sob with free healthcare and housing? Why should a working Americans taxes go for paying for bigger government that wants to fund everyone else including foreign countries?
Republicans have never had a problem however with taxes paying for education of ANY American Citizen. However they do have a problem paying for the education of NON American Citizens who are citizens of foreign countries and here illegals... I.E. illegal aliens.
So now I ask you why are liberals such racist pricks who hate America and Working Americans?"

Answer 2: "Wow. I'm not sure where to begin with you.
Well, okay, I'll pretend this is actual question and not a rant.
First learn the differences between Conservatives and Republicans from a source that is not belligerent to conservatives beliefs.
Second, recognize Somalia is probably not a positive example for anything at all.
Most Sane Americans do Not have a problem with things that our tax dollars go to that have a recognizable return (i.e. roadways, highways, public schools, law enforcement officials etc.) and is therefore not Laissez Faire wasteful socialism."

Answer 3: "somalian pirates make over $200 million an year. No education, no taxes, no resume, no consequences whatsoever. But it still requires guts to hijack a ship on the ocean. Hijacking the ship while on a small boat in the middle of ocean does need nerves of steel though".

3. I've used this Somalia alternative on a conservative relative. It shut him down.Everyone in the room

who heard it (mostly all Democrats) agreed conservatives should move there.
