I will never understand how taking $10 out of my wallet so that the state can give me $10 worth of services somehow is better than if I take $10 out of my wallet and buy the services myself.
[quote user="Sovereign"]Which begs the question as to why you don't see this and whose side are you on (them or the people).[/quote]
I would suggest you mean you don't agree with me, not that I am not on the side of the "people". That would imply that you know what the people want. You know what you want, and certainly can find people to agree with you, but that in no way makes your position representative of the "people" in general. Some of the people, me being one, don't agree with you.
[quote user="Sovereign"]I would point out that MI has been doing things your way (the Granholm, Cherry, Dillon, Michael Moore, Levin, Milliken, et al way) for decades, how's that workin' out for ya?[/quote]
You forgot to mention someone who was in the Governor's mansion for 12 years prior to Granholm, John Engler. I'm not aware that Michael Moore was elected to any political office here in Michigan, and I didn't vote for Miliken, but thought he did a good job as a Republican governor.
no way, we are screwed! income tax calculator
