    My personal views FWIW.... Since we seem to be having a heavy political day here in chat.

    I believe in personal responsibility. People need to take charge in their lives. Don't look for the government to give you a handout. Don't look for the government to bail you out of your bad choices. Don't look for the government to give you an unfair advantage in society because of your race / religion / orientation / national origin.

    I believe in responsible choice. If you don't like what you hear on the radio or see on TV you have the power to change the station. Pro life - fine. Pro abortion - fine. But you are responsible for the outcome of those choices.

    I believe personal choices are just that personal. If I want to skinny dip in my pool in the privacy of my back yard - fine. If you're at the end of your life you should be allowed to end your pain & suffering.

    I believe in less federal government and more local government. The fed needs to be cut to 1/10th its current size - that would be a good start.

    I believe in equal taxation of all citizens regardless of income - and to this extent the IRS should be eliminated and replaced with a flat 5% (or whatever appropriate % some economist determines) federal tax. Why so low??? well we only have 1/10th the current government to support.

    I believe the military should be prepared to defend us - and that's it. Afghanistan = right place, right time, right reason. Iraq = wrong place, wrong time, wrong reason. However, we're in it now up to our a$$ and we need to stop pussying around and finish the job right. If we just pull out now we leave a bigger mess that before we went in.

    I believe we need to become more self reliant and if that makes gas $6 / gal well too bad.

    Basically, I believe people have the right to do what ever the hell they want to do so long as it doesn't interfere with my right to do the same.


    Have at it - RANT ON

    I believe almost exactly in the same things that Labrat does. But the Flat Tax rate is really low. Conservative estimates have a flat tax at 18%



    My big difference is that I believe that Iraq is the right place, wrong time.

    We should have finished it years before.

    That this thread with quickly degrade into an arguement I dont want to read.

    Sliced bread, although good, is not the best invention Ive seen in a long time.

    Sarcasm, when used properly, can lead to very funny sex jokes.

    My 80 kicks ass(keep in mind you asked what IIIIII believe :D )

    And finally. The phrase "out with a bang" means much more coming from a man whos armed. :D

    Most Oklahomans. Poor confused bastids. You can't find good pork anywhere in Oklahoma City.
