132. Medicade? Is that a drink?
Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Education, roads, and airports, and the postal service are all great American institutions. We pay taxes for these things through a capitalist system, and they function us well. The postal service runs like a company itself. Medicaid and Medicare are social programs that are paid by tax dollars. Social Security, most of the time, is your own money. If you get injured or disabled, other peoples tax dollars help you. Roads are contracted out to companies by our goverment using tax dollars. This is capitalism. We pay for our own military, our own roads, our own social system, police, firemen, etc. This is the reason why I don't mind paying taxes. The thing I do mind is Bush mismanaging these taxes for dumbshit stuff like Iraq.

Reagan wasn't a cult of personality. I don't know who bunkerboy is, so whoever that is probably isn't a cult of personality. Further more our revolution was already 200 years old when Reagan came into office. Our system, and our revolution wasn't revolved around a cult of personality. It was revolved around Washington, Paine, Jefferson, Adams, Hancock, Frankin, Hamilton, et. al.
