Guns don't kill people...

crazy lesbian Liberals with screwdrivers kill people, and then commit suicide. At least, that is the way things appear to have gone down, according to Palm Beach police. It seems that Carol Anne Burger, a writer for the Liberal Huffington Post, stabbed her estranged wife 22 times before taking her own life by pressing a pistol under her chin, thus proving the Liberal axiom that guns kill.

Perhaps that is why Liberals are for gun control- they project their own violent leanings upon others. Of course, their being dead will not cost Obama any votes- Acorn always finds a way for dead people to vote for Obama. Wouldn't want to infringe on the rights of the dead, don'tcha know.

Tax protesters

There is an old saying that Americans have one thing in common: They all believe they are better than average drivers. There is one other trait that many Americans share- they each think they understand the law, even when they do not. Nowhere is this more true than with tax protesters.

There are numerous fallacies that are held by them that simply drive me crazy. For example:

- Arguments that tax laws only apply to corporate officers and government employees. This belief stems from the following definition from the tax code:

“For purposes of this chapter, the term ‘employee’ includes an officer, employee, or elected official of the United States, a State, or any political subdivision thereof, or the District of Columbia, or any agency or instrumentality of any one or more of the foregoing. The term ‘employee’ also includes an officer of a corporation.” I.R.C. section 3401(c).
This erroneous belief stems from a misunderstanding of the word "includes." To illustrate, if I said, "My gun collection includes a Colt Combat Commander and a Mossberg 500," would that mean that my collection did not contain a Kimber Ultra Carry? Of course it wouldn't. Using the word "includes" does not mean "only includes."

Similarly, many protesters claim that when section 7701(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code states that:

“The term ‘person’ shall be construed to mean and include an individual, a trust, estate, partnership, association, company or corporation.”
That there are no people in the country EXCEPT corporations and trusts. Of course that is ridiculous.

There are tons of tax arguments, and the reasons they are wrong, that can be found here. Read them, and we can discuss them after you have an understanding of the principles involved.

I agree that progressive income taxes are wrong. I agree that taking my money to give to someone else in a socialistic redistribution of wealth is the equivalent of armed robbery. I disagree that the tax code has such ludicrous loopholes.

There goes the Fourth Amendment

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Those are the words that are enshrined in the Bill of Rights, more specifically the Fourth Amendment. I have been looking really hard, and I cannot seem to find the part where the Government is allowed to use radar to see what you look like naked, that the Government can refuse your entry to trains and subways if you refuse to be searched. (Not just in New York)

Do some homework: Ask yourself where the Bill of Rights has been violated. I think we have hit all ten. The Republic is dead. The fun part is going to be where I get to point out to my Republican friends that the powers being abused by Obama are the same ones they gleefully gave W.

Robin Hood

This article refers to Obama as "Robin Hood," stating that he will be "confiscating money from the rich to give to the poor." This is in reference to his statement that he will take the profits of small-business owners and "spread the wealth around" to those with lesser incomes.

That does not mean that he is Robin Hood, because Robin Hood stole from the GOVERNMENT and gave the money back to the taxpayers. See, the reason the people in the Robin Hood tales were in the state they were in was because the Sheriff of Nottingham was confiscating the wealth of the citizens to make himself rich.

I believe that anyone who advocates taxing successful people to give to the poor underclass is rather more like another historical figure- Karl Marx.

In conjunction with McCain's claims that he wishes to take oil company profits and redistribute them, the differences in this election are of degree only.
