A breakdown of the Axiom's involved in the issue... Moral Issues Axiom 1: Having a monopoly does not mean that you have done anything morally wrong, all of your property and clients can be justly acquired. Axiom 2: Antitrust laws only have value when they are back by forcing others to comply, such as with breaking up a monopoly by taking control over resources. Axiom 3: It is immoral to apply force against others when they have not done anything wrong.

For the sake of argument, let's say you statement is correct, that the economy did boom when there was a top tax rate of 91%. Question- does that make it right? Did the people being taxed 91% agree to this? One can presume they didn't, so what is the justification for this tax? Does the benefit to the whole ("the economy") make it morally and ethically acceptable to tax someone at 91%? What about 92%? Or 93%, 94%, ... 99%? Why not just take it all if it makes the economy boom? Why not, since that is the objective here. So let's say that the people being taxed 91% didn't agree to this, but were fine paying for services they utilized such that they helped pay for the roads they use, they pay for local fire and police protection, patent filling fees, court costs and such. Let's say this voluntary exchange doesn't come close to 91%, should the rest still be taken? Can you explain how it makes it right for a group of people to lay claim to the wages and earnings of someone else in this case? Remember, the government is nothing more than a group of people.

"America has the highest gun violence in the world" (reference to murder rate) Murder is a terrible thing and certainly no one wants to see one of their loved ones murdered. To directly answer your question, I don't know anyone who is delusion on the dangers of guns, guns are designed to hurt/kill, so they are inherently dangerous. Most people know this.

    To answer, it's of value to examine how it's down now. This is a framework that can apply for many similar situations... 1. There is some identification of a problem. Scientist / researchers ID that some human behavior is causing a long term issue. 2. There is campaign to grow awareness of the problem, people debate the research and the real impact of the issue. 3. Coalitions are built to set a policy to fix the problem. 4. Laws get past, people get notified. 5. Funds are used to enforce the law. 6. Forced is used to make violators comply with the law. 7. If too many people disagree with the law a war of sorts breaks out.

    Hi Gage,
    I saved some of the pictures you took at the last Ron Paul event because they were some of the best face shots I'd seen. Would you mind if I used them in order to create custom tote bag iron-ons in Photoshop? I would post a thread up here and link back to your picture thread, giving you 100% credit for the source images. I'll understand if no, but I'd be so grateful if yes :P Thanks!
