Do you honestly think the construction company given money by the government takes better care of its equipment/employees than the company that pays for these things out of its own pocketbook? Do you really believe that all those welfare recipients who drive their Twinkies and beer home in their Avalanches are deserving of your tax money that they receive in the form of welfare and food stamps? Your example of the Hoover Dam is a bit misleading, since it is a cooperative effort between several state governments and the federal government. At best, is an example of what can be accomplished when states work together for a common need. Whether the federal government should be involved is the real issue here.

I see far more liberals calling out conservatives for name-calling, like you are doing, than I have ever seen conservatives denying they call others names. I also see far more liberals claim they don't call others names...

Where did the idea that conservatives are less prone to name calling come from? From liberals holding themselves to a lower code of conduct, perhaps? Conservatives are just as apt to name-call as any other human. But liberals get madder about it because they think they are the only ones who should be allowed to call anyone a 'name'.
You don't really know that.

Spacemonkey, Religion is different from government in that you CHOOSE to follow the tenets of the religion you adhere to, while government DICTATES that you adhere to its demands, regardless of how arbitrary and idiotic.
It isn't a parable that this compares to - it is the woman in the temple who gave her only two coins, compared to the Pharisees who give their tithe exactly. While they gave their tenth as an obligation, she gave all she had.
Donjindra, have you read "A Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel? As the legal editor for the Chicago Tribune, he was an avowed atheist. After his wife converted to Christianity, he set out to disprove it. There is plenty of evidence of the veracity of Christianity. Choosing not to believe in the face of that evidence is your choice. But it does not mean the evidence does not exist.
If many seemingly...
You never know when something you say may trigger a change of heart in someone. It many seemingly futile remarks bring someone from their self-imposed darkness, they were not really futile, were they?
