I found that when I refer to someone as being "red", people today think I'm accusing them of being Republican.

So Warren Buffett pays lower taxes than his secretary but where does his secretary get all that money she needs to pay her taxes
What kind of naive bubble do you people live in? I'll start with the most obvious.1.The continuing and increasing theft of one person's money/property for the benefit of another IE: slavery of those with abilities to those in need. 2.Zoning pretty much dictates every little thing you are allowed to do with your property. 3.The hiring and firing of any employee I want for any reason I want. 4.To pay an employee any agreed on wage. 5.The right of me and my children not to have their education controlled by government. 6.PRIVACY 7.The right to carry on business without permits, licenses, zoning, ADA compliance, and on and on... I can continue on for quite awhile but you'll never get it as you fear freedom more than big government.
Since you leftist sheeple have destroyed the only free country on earth, there is no place left to flee to, whereas you statist/socialist lovers have a whole smorgasbord of countries you can pick from. Why don't you flee and LEAVE US ALONE?? Why do you want to stay here where so many people are trying to force you to be free (oxymoron intentional)?

When I think of all the people who should be working the question always arises "where?". There aren't enough jobs anymore for those who really want to work. The politicians have completely destroyed the manufacturing jobs in this country that were once entry level for many of the young. And even a small business that thinks "boy I could use a little help around here" can't really afford it or handle all the regulations involved.
"Permission to exercise your right" is an oxymoron. Sort of like a "free speech zone".
. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction cannot lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers." Calvin Coolidge
One of my favorite quotes. (2 Parts) "It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning cannot be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final.

It seems to me that in a free country the ultimate goal would be to eliminate as many laws as possible. If you pay someone a six figure salary and give them the title of “lawmaker”, what do you expect? My answer is to give the House of Reps the title of "Anti-Lawmaker". Their primary job would be to prevent, eliminate, and challenge every law and regulation so that only those that are constitutional, reasonable, and necessary remain. Wouldn't it be refreshing to hear our representatives campaigning on how many laws they eliminated or prevented?
"Did you really think we want those laws to be observed? We want them broken…We're after power and we mean it. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them." Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
