    Democrat's Credo

    Tax his land,
    Tax his wage,
    Tax his bed in which he lays.
    Tax his tractor,
    Tax his mule,
    Teach him taxes is the rule.
    Tax his cow,
    Tax his goat,
    Tax his pants,
    Tax his coat.

    Tax his ties,
    Tax his shirts,
    Tax his work,
    Tax his dirt.

    Tax his tobacco,
    Tax his drink,
    Tax him if he tries to think.

    Tax his booze,
    Tax his beers,
    If he cries,
    Tax his tears.

    Tax his bills,
    Tax his gas,
    Tax his notes,
    Tax his cash.

    Tax him good and let him know
    That after taxes, he has no dough.

    If he hollers,
    Tax him more,
    Tax him until he's good and sore.

    Tax his coffin,
    Tax his grave,
    Tax the sod in which he lays.
    Put these words upon his tomb,
    'Taxes drove me to my doom!'

    And when he's gone,
    We won't relax,
    We'll still be after the inheritance TAX!!

    Republicans, on the other hand, pass the cost of their projects to the grandkids instead of paying them with current taxes.

    Borrow and spend is worse than tax and spend.

    Bingo, everyone got the right answer. Both political parties are nothing but greedy trash. Time to dismantle both and start over.

    "greedy trash" seems a bit harsh, think we need to speak Christlike at all times, but your are right in the fact that BOTH parties spend too much and waste too much. This is why we need to focus on the issues from a biblical perspective.

    God Bless! :thumbs:

    I do believe the Lord used harsh words for the Scribes and Pharisees. What term is it that you want to use for those elected officials the American people have put a public trust into, that squander that trust for personal gain, trampling on the best interests of the American people.

    Just what less wording would you use for these types of people?

    To tell you the truth, greedy trash seems quite mild to me compared to the true character of politicians.

    While the temptation to toss them all out and start over is big, it's not ever going to happen. We, the people should work within the current framework to place people in office that reflect our viewpoints, and for the most part that is what happens. We are sadly lacking in the values necessary to elect good government.

    The Republican party has a platform that I can support, but finding servants to fill those positions is increasingly difficult.

    The Republicans want what the Democrats want but for $0.10 less on the dollar.

    Oh? So the Reagan administration and the Bush I administration and now the Bush II administration have not put our nation deeper in debt than any of else would have thought imaginable? I remember when $50 billion deficits were considered fiscally reprehensible. Now George W. Bush does 10 times that amount yearly.

    Democrats ran deficits for decades and taxed the public at a much higher rate.

    They collect more tax dollars , but never enough to keep up with spending. Then Republicans like Reagan have to spend billions on a defense infrastructure that is crumbling due to democrat neglect.

    Since they'll overspend no matter how much they take in, I vote I keep as much of my own money as I can. Of the choices we have, a republican would be better. Especially if we can get one that spends like a Republican as well as taxes like one.

    Those that tax like a Republican , but spend like a democrat need not apply.

    It is morally reprehensible to for government to spend money and not raise sufficient revenue to pay for it, or if borrowing is necessary to not have a plan to repay the loans.

    I don't care if it's a Republican or a Democrat or whatever spending the money.

    Tax Man.....

    George Harrison on 6-string bass, Paul McCartney on the very edge of his talent on lead guitar, John Lennon on the nasty rhythm.....what a great song.
