I work, I vote, I (begrudgingly) pay Taxes. I haven't forfeited my rights through the commission of any crimes, and I support the Bill of Rights. For some reason, however, I am not trusted by the liberal left. Nothin' pisses me off worse than someone trying to tell me how to live, what I can or cannot own, or how much of what I EARN by the sweat of my brow am I allowed to keep AFTER they confiscate a third of my earnings, and then send me a bill for the balance in April. It just ain't right. I prefer to pay more for goods at my local proprietors rather than shop with the big conglomerate retailers, but nearly everything comes from China anyway, still, I would rather put money in my neighbors' pockets as opposed to paying a bunch of stockholders abroad. It doesn't always work out that way, though. I served in the Navy, graduated college, raised a daughter, and in 2000, (jointly) owed more taxes than I earned (personally). My daughter urged me not to vote for Obama... I applaud her for her wisdom.
