17. sounds like ...
you aren't so concerned about government programs as you are about the redistribution of wealth. And you think the government won't screw that up? HA I think stereotyping the rich as Scrooge McDuck is wrong. I don't think they horde their wealth. I think they spend it. Happiness is not being locked in a room with piles of cash. I think that speaks to your unfortunate opionion about the essence of man.
You are quick to act condescending on a few of my points but only answered my points with a couple backhanded comments. Riddle me this Batman, has the federal government seen an increase in tax revenues since the tax cuts? I know nobody can exactly define the Laffer curve but how else to explain tax cuts and revenue windfalls. My bottom line is that we have let government in general expand beyond its Constitutional origins and for someone to say that we should give them more power is hard for me to swallow. Please don't tell me that the machinations of "government" is the cure for everything.
