Really? You honestly are making a direct tie-in between the Constitutional responsibilities of the government (Security, commerce, infrastructure)
and something the current president pulled out of his fairy tale visions and made reality via a stacked deck Congress during his first 2 years in
office? If you are a voting American, here's your sign.
As for directly responding to any specific points you made, you're trying to compare apples to toadstools. On one hand you've got a list of things
EVERYONE, rich, middle, poor uses pretty equally: Roads, defense, infrastructure , all things funded with tax dollars AND USED BY US ALL WITH BENEFIT
roughly PROPORTIONATE TO TAX PAYER COST. (WTH is the postal service doing on your list man? They're broke, government isn't bailing them out,
foreshadowing of the future destiny of our wonderful socialized medicine system, or maybe foreshadowing of the average socialized medicine patient?
hmmm....) Why not simplify things? Person A doesn't have to worry about Person B's health related behavior because he isn't paying for anyone
other than himself and, conversely, Person B doesn't worry about Person A's wallet because he isn't expecting any money out of anyone other than
himself. That's a concept called personal responsibility and, regardless of how many immature, irresponsible dependents America may currently have
whining their way through life, I refuse to call personal responsibility dead.
