As a group? No. As individuals? Yes.

See, this country was supposed to be all about justice and rights for the individual, not social justice for groups. That's how far it has devolved. But you probably don't know about such because you've never studied history and you apparently hate the country you don't even understand.

Just because my television is on doesn't mean I'm actually watching it. I live by myself and sometimes I just like hearing the noise it makes while I'm busy doing something else.

I did watch three pretty good movies on it this past weekend. Since my girlfriend's been in the hospital I seem to have more uninterrupted time to spend . . .

Automatic transmissions were invented for non-drivers. Everyone should have to use a manual transmission equipped car to pass their driving test.

My next vehicle purchase will be a pickup truck with a manual transmission. With so few people out there who know how to drive one, nobody will be asking to borrow it.

Not hyperbole.

It's just one more step in the wrong direction. The country will not fall overnight. It's going to be a long, drawn-out process, but the closer we get to the end, the faster events will happen. We already have a central government that is way too strong and is drunk on its power. Soon it will be impossible to stop the move to totalitarianism. We may already have passed the point of no return.

I'm 63 years old. I remember what the country was just a few decades ago, and I've studied enough history to understand where we're headed. It's not going to be pretty and I guarantee that nobody will like it.

Vote in November. It won't make any difference which way you vote.

That's why everyone should be for the Fair Tax. It's not like all the other "flat tax" plans!!! The prebates cover all of what a poor person would be paying in taxes on necessities. Everybody gets the prebate, from the poorest of the poor to the richest of the rich. Read about it and you'll love it.

As an added bonus, it also gets rid of the IRS!

"The poor have to do drug tests to get their tax benefits."

Since when?!? Every time that has been proposed it's been shot down. Of course if they catch you with drugs in a housing project, they'll kick you out, but that's not the same thing.

Better idea - let's drug test ALL government employees at every level of government, starting with elected people first.
