1. It's such a crappy analogy, I don't know where to start.

What is beer supposed to be? Is it government services? How exactly can that be quantified? And doesn't this oversimplify what type of government benefits an individual may recieve by all lumping it into one product, i.e. beer?

It's hard to put together a simple rebuttal because it's just so, so stupid. Is this Kamerschen guy even real?

Rule of thumb: Beware of those whose political opinions are based off of chain emails.
