I've read your updates and see the point you are trying to make. But I can't agree with you at any level. I work for myself, my wife and my
children. I work hard for a nice, secure home, food we actually like on the table, cars that don't break down all the time in the driveway, etc. I
may decide to work harder for something in particular...for my family. During hard times, I might work somewhere trivial...for my family. Because it
is MY family to which I am responsible. It is my family that I love, protect, watch over, etc...as I should...and as is my responsibility.
Anyone...and I MEAN anyone that attempts to take that for which I work away from me and my family, is an enemy. I'm not talking about paying to fix
roads that I use, or paying for the school my children attend...I'm talking about taking from my family to give to someone else's family. THAT is not
my responsibility. Taking from my family has repercussions. Maybe my children can't go to college because of it. Maybe they can't get the right
medical treatment. Maybe they don't learn as well or as much as they should because someone has taken that ability from us...when WE worked hard for
Hell...I would argue that if you take $100 more from me each year and give it to someone else, you have damaged the future of my family. At least
potentially. And NO ONE has a right to do so! I help people all the time. I pay out money to people, give them assistance, I do quite a bit of my
own free will. But I'll be DAMNED if I sit back and allow anyone to take from my loved ones against my will. And yes...I will fight anyone who
tries. I may loose...I may have no chance of winning. But I will fight and if nothing else, hurt them in the process.
Why? Because I love my family and it is my responsibility.
