    Enjoy your new Democrat sponsored income “surtax” to pay for Obama’s escalation of the three wars…

    War destroys wealth. War destroys the wealth of the taxpayers, current and future, who pay for it, and it also destroys the wealth of those who are attacked.

    I’m not opposed to taxes. Federal or State. I would like the FAIRTAX, do you know what that is or how it would work? I really don’t know how you could possibly come to the comclusion that your suggesting. Perhaps you meant for this comment to be directed towards MarkDouglasC.

    I suggest you move to Somalia or some other third world Hobbesian state-of-nature hellhole that has none of those pesky taxes that pay for the roads you drive on, the cops on your street, the protections for the food and medicines you consume or the education for yor children.

  7. FranklyMisterShankly Says:

    A valid point, but does your NJ water convieniently arrive to your house via a faucet (which, in turn, is connected to a municipal water main and a reservoir constructed with state or federal funds) or do you bring it home on foot by the bucket? If it is the latter, you really do have a credible reason to complain…

    Housing means programs FHA, Freddie Mac (pre-crash anyway), subsidies for the construction industry, portions of Federal welfare that go to rent subsidies, etc.

    Nutrition means FDA, Dept of Agg and Dept of Education programs involved in research and nutrition, plus welfare cheese, farm subsidies and research.

    The big take home should be, however, how much interest on borrowed money and military/defense (which is non-productive – it earns nothing without use) swamps out all of these.

    The video said it was a over simplification. Come on! Go easy on it.

    well … dosn’t it ? 😀

  12. Rocketdogaffairs Says:

    What does “housing” mean?
    What does “nutrition” mean? Like the american government spends a bunch of money on apples?
    Sorry but this video is a bunch of crud.

  13. SNathanNeedham Says:

    I am an accountant and I often see numbers I do not believe are accurate. I do not believe the numbers that were presented in the video. I am calling your bluff.

    god your really snooty

  15. pikmindoctor Says:

    Sorry I’ve just realised you put ” not you, your leaders” – sorry 🙂

  16. pikmindoctor Says:

    I don’t think it’s fair to hate an entire country, and actually there’s a lot of things I like about America (some great TV shows, films and music for example). I’m a Brit, so I guess there’s a certain amount of hatred for things our country did in the past too.
    However, I and many other Europeans feel that your right wing party is one of the most stupid and corrupt in the developed world, and the way that religion is used to win election campaigns is shocking.

  17. flyffplaya Says:

    Is the US in that much danger of being conquered?

  22. canadianboy111 Says:

    30% in military, no, that is too high at 10%.
