I believe in public goods, which means I believe in taxes. I also believe in the law of diminishing returns, so I believe that taxes should be levied higher according to your income. Boo for people who claim that lowering taxes solves all problems.

If the income tax completely disappeared, the government's revenue would still be above its revenue in 2000. Scary?

Also, Ron Paul is such a stupid nationalist. What kind of "libertarian" (despite the R next to his name, he is essentially a libertarian candidate) wants to spend government money to randomly make the market more inefficient by building a border fence. Plus, his fervent isolationism is ficking creepy. A Ron Paul administration would solidify the tradition of the US government sitting on its *ss while genocide, starvation, and disease kill millions.

So, it's the DUTY of the US to care about 5bn people?
November 4th, 2007

By sacrificing yourself? Who gains from that? The main problem in the world is not genocide, food and disease but corruption and despotism. If you want to help the world then make the US a beacon of freedom and purpose as an example for others. Most countries in the world compare themselves with the US, if the US moves down, they move down as well.

Well, if you continue to vote for people who support the wars, yes. Concerning the front runners only Ron Paul wants to end the war. Clinton wants to stay in Iraq until 2013.

"It's the duty of human beings to care about your fellow human beings." Yes, on a VOLUNTEER basis, not through coercion and force. By the way, Americans per capita are the most generous people in the world. And in the most legitimate sense: VOLUNTEER donation.

he wont win, but he will steal the votes from people who can. Although some things he says he cannot and willnot win. What a shame, be best is he didn't run...or another George W. Bush will take office, and another 4 years of hell we will be enjoying...sigh

He's saying Ron Paul is undermining the Democrat vote, much like Ralph Nader was accused of doing in the 2000 election. It's a matter of choosing the lesser of two evils (not in the literal sense).

Lincoln didn't actually care about the slaves. He violated habeas corpus. He violated the constitution. He imprisoned political opponents. He violated the rights of states to legally remove themselves from the Union. Free countries don't force others to be members of them.

FDR's plans were disasters. His price control schemes only led to product shortages, due to the fact that people scrambled to buy things below market value. Social Security, which he used to get easy votes, turned out to be a financial mess. There is more money going out than coming in. Even the modern democrats admit that it is a problem. The Great Depression never ended while he was president. Many economists say that his policies only made things worse. http://tinyurl.com/2qocqf

Actually, Social Security is a financial mess because LBJ opened its funding up for use outside of its intended purpose in order to further fund the Vietnam conflict, which basically took the "Security" out of "Social Security". Once the war ended, the government found it rather liked having the extra money to throw around and so they never put it back the way it was. If they'd quit taking money out of Social Security to pay for other programs, it would be working just fine.

Not to mention the almost laughable idea that wealthy people are suffering so much because of Evil Taxes, they can't enjoy any of their gains. They're suffering more than you and me, just because they're superior to us...

Though I really admire Paul for his willingness to stand alone in the Republican debates and sandblast the other candidates for their obsession with their pet war, while they all see how many times they can reference 9/11 and the Fox commentators laugh at him like drunken sports announcers.

"or like having a functioning economy..." Yes, I REALLY like a functioning economy, which is why the Federal Reserve should be shut down, taxes should be reduced, corporate welfare and privileges should be ended, and meddlesome bureaucrats removed from office. It has been proven by many economists that there should be as little government intervention as possible (with perhaps the exception of enforcing against fraud, larceny and contract violations). The silly 'progressive' ideas, along with the income tax and federal reserve, led to the great depression. The long discredited 'Keynesian Economics' policies led to the recession of the 1970's. And communism, as you know (well, maybe not you), fell apart, due to misallocation of resources, too much debt, inflationary currency and economic stagnation. And now, our country has the highest amount of government spending as percentage of GDP (44%), yet more people are going below the poverty line, with rising inequality. Well, imagine that. 0/4

The amount of stupidity in these replies amazes me. Hey guys, the Income Tax is used to pay off the debt created by the Federal Reserve. The Income Tax is NOT used for roads, education, welfare, roads, schools, medicare, social security, border security, or anything of the like. NOT A PENNY! Please watch Aaron Russo's America: Freedom to Facism. Take the time to do this. It is not a waste of your time. You are victim of propaganda. Nothing you pay in federal income taxes are for your benefit! Not one!

You only like Ron Paul because he is anti-War. Other than his stance on the war he is so far right that he could almost be considered an isolationist. He will be this decade's Ross Perot, and could likely tip the scales in favor of the Traitorcrat candidate were he to run as an Indy which is what Soros and the Code Pink crowd are pushing for... Also c*cks.
November 8th, 2007
(1)
He is NOT far right. He stands up powerfully for free speech, for drug legalization, AGAINST a police state rather than FOR, he is a POWERFUL supporter of civil liberties, FOR habeus corpus, AGAINST the death penalty, AGAINST torture, AGAINST wiretapping, AGAINST the patriot act, FOR allowing the states to have gay marriage, AGAINST a constitutional amendment barring flag desecration, AGAINST school mandated prayer, AGAINST corporate welfare, AGAINST the defense industry, AGAINST national ID cards...

Finally, there is nothing wrong with bringing the troops home. In fact, it would be extremely beneficial. Our soldiers are literally in 130 nations across the world, even in nations that have not experienced war in over 50 or more years. Why should we protect wealthy nations like Germany or Japan against non-existent enemies? Why should we send our soldiers to nations to oust a leader, simply because we do not agree with his political views? Suppose other nations did that to us? What would you think?
November 8th, 2007

Finally, bringing the troops home and stopping this world police nonsense is not even CLOSE to far right. You are so way off base on this one. Noam Chomsky, Ralph Nader and Gore Vidal, people who are all well associated with the left, have all espoused these views. You really got to STOP WATCHING FOX NEWS.

November 10th, 2007
(0)
The top 5 nations, or the 5 nations that you like best? Because if you look at the statistics, you will see that the nations with the fastest growing GDP's, the highest median income averages, the greatest amount of economic freedom, the lowest taxes for the average citizen, the lowest costs of living aren't social democratic welfare states. The only reason why leftists say that social democratic nations are superior is because of all the 'free' stuff people get from government.
November 10th, 2007
(-1)
In actuality, these states have sluggish economies, that barely grow at all, or are beginning to shrink. In 20 to 40 years from now, these 'social democratic' states are no longer going to be able to pay for their welfare programs and other 'free' stuff they give to the people. The reason? Their populations are shrinking. There will be fewer young people able to pay for the programs with their tax revenue. Try looking at statistics before making claims.
November 10th, 2007
(1)
No I mean ones that are not only ranked #1 by international agencies, but are also considered the best by the vast majority of people on the planet. Norway, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands and Denmark. Better education, more equality, less obesity, virtually no crime, smarter populations, excellent transportation, virtually no corruption, strong multi-party democracy, virtually no religious superstition. It's very difficult to find a single advantage the US has anymore. Their populations are growing too.
November 10th, 2007
(-1)
You should check your facts more closely. Education: Finland does well because they allow their schools to compete, each school can heavily influence its curriculum. Other countries like germany do much worse. Also look at the ranking of universities, in the top 100 you will find mostly US universities. Transportation: That might have something to do with the number of people / square mile. Besides, roads are in the hand of the government, right? Equality: Well... you might be right, lol
November 10th, 2007
(-1)
There is also a 'happiness index', the US ranks among the top when you do not include the 'environment footprint'. Same goes for lifespan. And about the 'multi-party democracy': There is ALWAYS a two-party system, consisting of one coalition and the opposition. Smarter population: Obviously not. Corruption: There is a "corruption perceptions index", the US ranks at the top20 as well. Religion: I agree. Crime: less crime, yes, but not "virtually no crime".
November 10th, 2007
(2)
Universities are not education. Education means "Educating the populace" not "Educating the elite members of the populace". Higher Education, yes, the US is tops. However, our education system is severely flawed and, yes, Belgium and Finland allow their schools to compete which does help, but that's not a libertarian/socialist thing. In fact, they are public schools so it is more of a socialist program than a libertarian program.
November 10th, 2007

Public transit is much better inside urban areas in those other countries as well. NYC is one of the only places in the US with a comparable public transportation system, and you can see what the lack of one does to American cities (Bay Area, LA, SD are horrible). About "multi-party republics": Presidential democracies will always have a 2 party system (except in rare cases where a 3rd party either overtakes one party or f*cks up one party and dies off (see: Ralph Nader, Ross Perot).
November 10th, 2007
(2)
Parliamentary democracies elect their president from within, so if you elect a green party member to Parliament your representative will vote for the candidate who most matches his or her political leanings which likely will match your political leanings rather than throwing away your vote (doubly so with the electoral college) in a Presidential election on a candidate that doesn't have a chance to win enough states.
