    Who is "they"? I went through the public school system. My wife teaches in the public school system. I assume your kids did too? Who are these people teaching Marxism? That's a way too overly broad statement. In reality there's only a very small subset of US youths that have any idea about it, and the only reason they make waves is because they're the most vocal. The vast majority of us stay quiet and enjoy the benefits of capitalism.

    Government mandated doesn't mean government subsidized. Not even the same thing. Is there a federal law forcing farmers to have crop insurance?

    Then why doesn't anyone have government subsidized car insurance?

    Why does anyone need to pay for federal crop insurance? Why can't you pay for it yourself from a private insurer? Why should taxpayers have the burden of subsidizing it? Why shouldn't GM move it's plants to an area they deem more profitable? Making laws keeping them where they are and forcing government mandated logistics sounds pretty isolationist to me.

    And it only took them what, 10 years? Try 52 right next to it. Or 26 from Lafayette to Kokomo. Fun stuff if you're a glutton for punishment or have a well endowed wife . Makes me super happy that Indy is sitting on a 2 billion dollar surplus. Does the roads real good!

    And as such, since (especially Indiana) the govt can't be bothered to fix anything, stop stealing my money for it!

    No roads? You mean like the one that already exists in front of myself? Who will build the roads that have already been built????

    Yes, we can scale down everything (if not eliminate) you just said. On the military side, I still stand by my statement - bring the troops home and decimate the budget. Our interest is in our borders only. No more foreign aid for anyone not willing to pay back in entirety, with interest. Which country would you rather invade, one with all their troops being concentrated in that country or one with their troops and assets scattered across the planet? I'm willing to pay for what I need and nothing else. I don't care about your roads, just as you probably don't care about mine. Police? I'd just assume to take my chances with the criminals not hiding behind badges. I'd be all for cutting farmer welfare, though I disagree with your assertion that low interest loans be excluded based on the simple fact that there is still interest being paid against the loan in amounts higher than inflation. And again, people with vested interests are and would be the ones who keep up the maintenance on roads. If you have a factory full of things, it's in your best interest to have a way to distribute those things. Think of it like a toll road if you will. You get the benefit of roads maintained to the level that suits you. If others would benefit from said road, they can help pay if they so choose to. NOT by being forced (and yes it is forced at the end of a government gun) to hand over your money to be redistributed to a general road fun that encompasses 99.999% of roads you'll never use. As stated earlier, yes, I do live in fantasy land. One where people have the liberty to not be forced to pay for the desire of others. I don't believe my interests should be subsidized by those who don't share that interest, especially at the hands of a "democratically elected" government.

    Roads existed well before 1913 when the income tax was implemented. Heck, even dominoes is repairing roads for us. People and businesses have a vested interest in travelling and delivering goods. If you have a need to go from point A to B, but no road exists, what do you do? You make one. Today, do you see many new roads being built? What's going on with the ones already built? Where are your tax dollars going? It sure as **** isn't going to fixing old roads, at least here. Ambulances are already paid by for-profit hospitals. Military can and should be cut to a small fraction of what it is now. NONE of my rights are outside the US and need no protection except within the borders. Bring them home and decimate the budget. No more world police. Most fire stations around here are volunteer and all have multiple fund raising opportunities. Simple fact is, taxation IS theft. Theft occurs when something is taken without consent. I don't consent to ANY taking of my property.

    Back to the subject at hand, I'm all for protesting against government. Violently, if need be.

    I came to the conclusion about halfway through the Obama presidency that to republicans, anyone not as right as them are automatically assumed to be at the far left of the spectrum. There is no in between. There is only republican and everyone else.

    Let's ask him. Hey @Atilathehun99, are you 100% pro liberal view?

    Not from my view. Sure he supports some left policies from time to time. Doesn't mean he's a union hack. Maybe I'm way off, but I think you're overreacting. Speaking as a libertarian who constantly bash anything the republicans do, (and gets called a liberal because of it) just because you adamantly disapprove of the policies of one side doesn't mean you support the other side.

    I'll preface this that I think AOC is quite possibly the most retarded person in politics today, (trump is still a very close second) her 70% figure, from what I understand, is being misreported. I think she wants a 70% bracket, not 70% across the board. This will only affect 1% of the highest 1% in the nation. That being said, taxation is theft, and we shouldn't pay any taxes, period.

    I have 9 pairs of brand new Yetter poly spikes I took on a trade. 7 pairs have new centers, 2 pair just rings. Would make a good deal on them.
