    Dead on. If it wasn't for the 2nd Amendment and the millions of gun owners the ComDems' current running platform would be "buybacks" , i.e. confiscation, of farms and factories. You know, since the wealthy property owners really stole it all from the people.

    If there's one good thing about this plan is they are finally admitting they want to take away our guns. How long did they go pretending confiscation wasn't on the table? They just wanted to keep guns out of dangerous people's hands lol


    Now the voting public has a more true picture of what the left was always after, and their plans aren't just about guns but taking over vast swaths of the economy, giving health ins to illegals, taxing the shit out of people, and offering all manner of free stuff with no logical way to pay for any of it.

    I would love to see that cartoon.

    I don't believe a lot of people care if someone comes to your door and takes your guns, but what they aren't seeing is that when they decide you've got more food than you need, too many cars, too big a house or you've had your share of the available healthcare, whats to stop them?.
    What your neighbors don't understand is once the guns are gone, there is nothing to stop the rest of your property from being confiscated also.

    They do that now. Even if your home is 100% paid off, see what happens if you don't pay your property taxes. They don't even care if you have guns, they will take your home and all your neighbors will say "What did you expect to happen?"

    People are so conditioned to having 40% of their income/property taken from them it isn't funny. People actually have the nerve to call things "tax refunds" when in actuality it is a return of a portion of your money.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    And that means we really are back to Feudal Europe where everything was property of the Crown, including every acre of land and all the serfs dwelling thereon.

    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    I have been saying for years that if instead everyone had to actually write a check every month to the government for the amount taken as income tax there would be a real revolution in this country.

    Us freelancers ALREADY have to do that, and we have to do it at the beginning ESTIMATING our revenues, then fight with amending after to deal with any overage or underage.

    Absolutely correct. A step further, this is how Democrats in general, not just leftists and communists, have felt about your income. Basically, it's not your money, it's just what "we" (the govt.) allows you to have by virtue of taxes.

    ^^^cont.
    That is why everytime a tax cut is proposed, Dems want to talk about how much it "costs" the government. And how are you going to "pay" for the cut?
    (Even though it's your money).
