Its funny the effect that coercion (gun to the head) has on people. Those promise checks MUST be cashed, and there's no other way to do it but through the barrel of a gun. I've paid a lot into Social Security - IMO, the government owes me my fking money. Will I get it? Probably not - I doubt it. Also, I've been debating on getting some photos of the rusted bridges here in IL. They had a clever idea - paint the bridges rust color, and you dont have to maintain them - MUH ROADS!
I say, let people vote with their dollars. If they don't want to buy into social security, medicare, military, highways, national parks, unisex bathrooms - let them decide.
A toll is a fair example of people voting with their dollars. The irony... I pay taxes and tolls :/
Who here thinks water is a good idea? People pay $1-$2 for a bottle of the stuff, and nobody makes them do it... Why not use the tap? The government provides utilities - they're "Free!"
