Taxes are collected for one purpose and one purpose only: to provide services to the community. It's like an investment, you don't get anything out unless you put something in. Why don't we just eliminate all taxes? If your house is on fire, put it out yourself; if someone breaks into your house, you're just at a loss since there'll be no police department. What if a war breaks out? You people have such a HO for the 2nd amendment you'll all be a part of the 'militia' so you can take up arms to defend what you call 'your' country. Garbage piling up? Put it in your car and take it to a designated land fill/recycling facility and sort it yourself. Now think about that while you sit at home in your wife beater drinking your Keystone Light.
Damn right Stone Age! Why are Georgia voters so ignorant? You gave Bush eight years to F!@# up this country, and now you're pissed that Obama hasn't cleaned up this S!@#storm in a year and a half. You bitch about illegal immegration; Republicans controlled the White House, Congress and the Supreme Court from '00 to '06 and could have went ape shit writing all kinds of immigration laws but didn't do diddly squat. And now you're whining about the Dems not solving the problem. We're bogged down in two wars, at the tip of the 2nd Great Depression, and you want to put the same people back in charge who caused this mess! Stop drinking the Kool-Aid for cryin' out loud!!!
Fiscal conservatives for lower taxes? They wanted to add another $10 to our already overinflated ad valorem taxes but it got rejected. Forward thinking traffic solutions? Don't bet on it; Gwinnettians don't want a Marta extension to Gwinnett Place Mall because "it'll bring Atlanta's criminals to our neighborhood"; these people will not vote for the penny sales tax increase to fund transportation. I can see this state slipping further and further back into the Stone Age.
LBJ said after he signed the Civil Rights Act, "we've lost the South for the next fifty years", and he was right. There are people who also can't stand to see a Black man in the White House; a vote for a Republican is really a vote against the Obama administration and what LBJ did forty five years ago.
I've never seen such an idiotic bunch like the Birthers in all my life. There's the FBI, the CIA and the Secret Service - don't you people know that Obama was checked out thouroughly by these groups and had his citizenship confirmed before he was even ALLOWED to run for President. You birthers really have your heads up your asses.
