    "To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."

    Interesting quote

    So if someone is required to pay for a war they do not believe in it is sinful and tyrannical

    The founders feared such a president as Obama is. Which is why they emplaced such checks and balances that Obama seems to get away with circumventing.

    Yes. Just as sinful and tyrannical as paying for someone elses healthcare that they should not be paying for as well.

    Is a war a propagation of an idea? Is surrender?

    Congratulations to koshergrl. As the leading troll at 1130 hours on Thursday, having three worthless threads on page one, s/he is on target to win the troll of the weak and weary award for the month of February.

    Keep up the work koshergrl, you have stiff competition. healthmyths is always a contender and never take your eye off LovesBears65, a rookie, but a rookie with the right (far right) stuff.
