31. I'm getting REALLY tired of the redistribution argument from their side...

It's THIS SIMPLE. If the vaunted Founders thought like you did, Congress would NOT have the power to raise taxes from the GENERAL POPULATION, and then use that money to build a ...WHATEVER... any where they damn well pleased. The Federal money used to pay for a thing in Upstate New York isn't ALL collected from Upstate New York. This concept is so simple that I can't bring myself to believe the ENTIRE Republican Party apparatus is too stupid to understand it, and it really does piss me off. If this is about the New Deal, then just cop to the fact that Rich People are greedy, self-centered fucks who don't think the poor deserve things like FOOD, (oh, wait you already did) and cop to it PUBLICLY (not that part, though). At least you would score some points for Honesty with the American People, rather than what you are trying to do NOW, which is to try and tell us all that what our eyes tell us is just illusory, and that you really DO care about people less well-off than yourself.
Motherfucker, if that were true in the SLIGHTEST, you wouldn't CARE about how much wealth gets "re-distributed", as long as you and yours had enough to live comfortably on. The BALLS these people have truly is stunning, at least I'll give them credit for that, I guess.
