All I have to do today is move a couple of piles of weeds and put it into the compost pile. I ought to be done by 10 or 11 this morning.
I was reading a Facebook post about how voter registration laws are so evil and I fail to see how. All that is required is you get an ID of some sort and register. It's not a whole lot of effort.
It seems the left thinks it's unfair but the truth is that it isn't. If you are not a citizen you have no right to vote. It's as simple as that.
Personally I think the left is against voter ID/registration laws so they can stuff the ballot box with a bunch of illegal votes from illegals.
It makes sense. Illegals are more than likely to vote for anything that is going to give them a freebie. If I were an illegal and could vote, you can bet your ass I would vote for someone that offered me a free cell phone.
It strikes me that we ought to have several tax choices. This would show us a lot.
First of all, no deficit spending. Not one nickel. Everything that was spent the previous year gets paid up on 15 April of the next year.
Watch that open a few eyes.
Social security would be an option. If you don't want it, you don't pay for it. Your choice. Of course, if you don't pay for it then you don't get anything from it. Same with Medicare. You pay for it.
Next, Social programs. If you want social programs, you pay to have them. If not, you don't. Simple. Watch a lot of leftists take a sharp right turn when they foot the bill.
Everyone, of course would pay for the basic infrastructure. Interstate highways, DoD, National Parks and things of that nature. Everyone would pay their fair share of that.
My basic guess is that if a guy were to opt for only Social security, medicare and pay his share of the basics his taxes would stay in the same ball park.
On the other hand, those that support all of these so-called social programs would go nuts as their taxes would probably at least double.
How about we try that one out for size?
Nothing funnier than watching someone make a fast 180 degree turn.
Incidentally I have seen this type of thing before.
At a woman's self-defense handgun class an inordinate number of women taking it had either been of had someone they knew that were crime victims.
An awful lot of them were for strict gun control before the incident took place. Afterwards they decided to take responsibility for their own safety and learn how to use a handgun.
It's funny how attitudes change when you become involved.
