    No more taxes. No taxes, no more for nobody.

    No taxation, no representation, no tyranny.

    Whoever all we owe, can just hang. Color us bankrupt.

    Think of me as a Republican-in-training.

    So - how will this work?

    I know the corporation people - we don't want to tax them. And if we don't want to tax them, then it logically follows that we don't want to tax the actual people.

    Having said all that, what other means can be used to raise money to support the government (you know. Should we actually require one.)

    I'm all for it. Give all the winners a prize and let's start over with the same amount of money we had 50 years ago.

    I'm not the brightest bulb in the knife drawer, but I think she's being sarcastic or something.

    So, the BD really does stand for BrainDead. Thanks for confirming.

    Actually it's an interesting proposition if we were to leave politics out of it. Why do we need money? I heard of a town in the former Soviet Union where the people who work at the power plant haven't been paid in years. The winters (and the summers by the way) are so harsh that if they didn't power the plant for just a little while, people who get power from the plant would perish. Now I don't know if that is true or not--the whole thing. I heard it during one of the "up close and personal" segments during NBC's broadcast of the Olympics.

    But the idea that in that remote town, there are things more important than money and I'm not talking about vanity poses, I mean if these people don't contribute and people who are serviced don't contribute back to them; they both die. I guess the animal kingdom works in the same way sort of.

    But anyway, I would be interested to hear what the board thinks; why do we need money?

    So it’s either spending the country into bankruptcy while paying people to not even work or anarchy... And you call others "extreme" or "fringe."

    There is another solution btw, it’s having a Government that is restrained by our constitution. Try it for once before you spontaneously combust due to getting your way but it not working rather than trying to blame anyone and everyone else for your own failures.
