    It's like when we pushed westward....Indian men hunted a little, fished a bit, mostly just lieing around and goofing off while the women did all of the real work..and we white men thought we could improve on a system like that!!!!

    I have seen this list before and every time I do it makes me:puke: I wish that we all had to write a check for each and every one of these taxes instead of having the automically witheld. I think that would lead to a revolt by all who had to write the check.

    I'm sure this was a rhetorical question but what happened is that people expected to have the government insure that they had ample food of every type, medical care for every ill, transportation and the roads upon which to use it, housing with heat and AC, telephone service, fire stations and ambulances, police, etc. They want all dangers removed from their existence. They want to be inconvenienced not at all. And they want all this from birth to death (regardless of how long life expectancy is), no matter if they work, don't work or are retired.

    Therefore, we pay and pay and pay.

    Nice reply Moi, you could also add "free college tution", whatever that means. But some democratic canidates are talking about it. Were in the constitution are all of these condtions guaranteed?

    Thanks for the compliment. Absolutely none of these things is guaranteed by the Constitution. None. Zip. Zilch.

    But let's face it, our liberal bretheren are rarely concerned with what the Constitution actually does say versus what they wish it said.

    Absolutely! If citizens really new how much they paid in taxes, things would change.

    I have a prediction for a new tax we will see in our lifetimes: A Federal Property Tax on Savings and Investments.

    As the ratio of contributors to benficiaries of Social Security continues to drop, the SS system will break. By that time, we will have reached the limits on income taxes - so the only thing to go after will be assets. The states already own real property taxes - but the principals on investments and savings are not taxed. I can just picture the class warfare rhetoric about how people who were frugal and disciplined enough to save for their retirement have a responsibility to help those who weren't.
