    Ira Glasser: What Are Conservatives Trying to Conserve?


    Can the forum say Amen? I do, conservatives aren't conserving anything that works to the good of all Americans.

    When are you sheep going to realize that so called conservatives are no different than so called liberals.

    Neither party spends less than the other.
    Both parties increase the size of government at every turn
    Both parties want to tell you how to live your lives.

    Free your mind from this antiquated 2 party system.

    Federal workers pay taxes and contribute to the economy, but you don't want to believe that.

    You do realize that the taxes federal workers pay are totally funded by the private sector don't you?

    And taking money from one sector to give to another does not really contribute to the economy. What difference does it make if I spend my money or the government gives it to someone else to spend?

    You do realize that the tax dollars of federal workers pays for the roads you drive on, the cops and military that protect you and social welfare just like everyone else? Private sector people don't drive on private sector roads last time I looked.

    The tax dollars that federal workers "pay" come from the private sector. ALL tax revenue comes from the private sector, therefore the private sector pays for everything including roads.

    Tell me where does the money come from to pay government workers?

    Since you can't seem to figure it out I'll tell you. ALL the money used to pay government workers comes from the private sector.

    Now if government workers pay taxes where does the money to pay those taxes come from? It comes from their salary which is 100% funded by the private sector. So ALL tax revenue is collected from the private sector.
