    No, what liberals do is use taxation to tax people into compliance. That’s not what we are talking about here. Here, we are taking about government lowering taxes to attract business; a very conservative thing to do.

    Then you have no idea what you’re talking about. Follow the news when a major industry is debating three or four places to erect or expand their operations. Tax abatement is at the top of the list.

    So conservative means more government influence now?

    They are playing a game. They know where they want to go. Creating this illusion gets them the deals.

    This is not "lowering taxes to attract business". What we're talking about is specific exemptions to reward specific businesses - government picking winners and losers. This is government "management" of society in classic liberal style. And you're employing the very same excuses.

    It isn't up to Government to help us, it's up to Government to get out of the way of those who can help us. Entrepreneurs will start business's, if government doesn't tax them to death or regulate the hell out of them.

    Of course, that must be it. And they are so sly that the cities or states can’t figure out their plan.

    Correct, and what can be more of getting government out of the way than government taking less from them?

    No, what we are talking about here is government trying to bring a business into their community using tax incentives. Or do you really believe that each state should have the same tax rate for businesses as ever other state?
