30. Sounds

The real issue is that people like yourself want to sidestep the basic question, when are we justified in using violence? The answer is, only in immediate self-defense of person and property. When you start taxing people under threat of violence or imprisonment, that's not self-defense. Until you can understand the basic principle of "keep your hands to yourself" then trying to debate anything more complex is pointless. Taxation is theft. If you want money, get it honestly, through free market trade. Welfare, personal and corporate, government regulations, etc, are violations of the "keep your hands to yourself" policy. If you're starving, you have no more right to rob me than any other time.

...like Ronulan speak.
