    First, that mortal enemy of Republicans, the IRS agent.

    Every agent recovers MUCH more in otherwise lost revenue to the Treasury than his salary. So why do conservatives want them gone? Because conservatives encourage deadbeat taxpayers in their ranks.

    Second, another target of the GOP, the illegal alien. (Notice how they're willing to give people breaking the law by not paying their taxes a full pass, but are willing to spend huge amounts chasing down poor Mexicans.)

    Illegal aliens are lowering your expenses across the board from cheaper produce to cheaper lawn care. Many pay Social Security that they will never collect on. Tax dodgers, on the other hand, are costing you, if you're one of us who pay their taxes.

    You forgot to mention the guy was homeless because the Republican had moved his company to China, putting the homeless guy out of a job. And since the Republican was shorting the government its taxes by using an account in the Cayman Islands, the Republican was happy it was only $50, a tiny fraction of what he should have paid.

    As to welfare it ought to be a last resort but never will be as long as we keep letting the top 10% scoop up all the income and wealth. If you insist on getting rich no matter who has to go hungry as a result, get used to paying for welfare.

    From this libertarians POV (can't speak for modern 'conservatives'), that would be because the point isn't to increase revenue to the government, but to get the government to operate within the confines of the enumerated powers of the Constitution, which requires far less revenue than we're currently collecting. Further, many, including the founding fathers, find the idea of taxing man's labor immoral.

    Again, can't speak for the GOP, but libertarians would argue in favor of anyone seeking labor. Of course, if we weren't drowning in debt due to all these entitlement/social programs, nobody would care about "illegal" aliens. Cheap labor is good. Forcing others to pick up the tab for the education, healthcare, food, housing, etc of any worker, illegal or otherwise, is not.

    p.s. You're new here. That's great, but please, lay off the color. We can see you just fine.

    I'd be in favor of shutting down 3/4s of our overseas military installations if that's what you mean. And I'd love to review each and every subsidy and tax break out there for corporations and private companies too. But I don't buy your claim that no one would care about illegal aliens if we weren't so heavily burdened with so-called entitlements. We could finance Social Security with the flick of a pen, for example, just eliminate the cap on the FICA tax and problem solved.

    But greed knows no boundaries. And in any case, if we merely stopped all the tax evasion out there, we'd be swimming in dough. Hard to do while conservatives insist on decimating the IRS. These people are destroying America far more decisively than that weasel Obama. (Voted for the guy the first time, then quickly realized he was a fraud.)

    Thanks for the giggle.

    Well, let's see, the Mafia imposes itself on its victims... and so does Congress, but with input from the rabble.

    The Mafia has a strict hierarchy where the top guy takes the biggest draw... and so do we, the rich just keep getting richer.

    It seems you have a point, except... the IRS is collecting on OUR behalf, not the bosses. So I'm afraid it's exactly the opposite.

    Mafia soldiers are more like bankers and most judges. Both can squeeze you mercilessly unless you pay. Both deserve harsh treatment in my opinion.

    So, no, I don't equate Mafia soldiers with IRS agents. Nor should you unless your some Godfather.
