    Isn't it time to rid ourselves of them and create that which benefits all?

    The idea of bowing to authority is so ingrained that the idea of true freedom cannot be fathomed by most people.
    very true...it wasn't...the law passers always pass laws with themselves in mind...It's sorta like coaching your kids...silly enough, this was an area of big disagreement with my ex...long story which I will not bore you with but in essence my view is...if I expend the energy to coach a group of kids including my own and others don't, then they lose...my kids get every break they deserve and then maybe a little more...

    At my own risk I will give you a little insight into my attitude towards government...

    They don't care about me, if they can they will rob me blind without batting an eyelash...so in the spirit of the gypsy I will return in kind. There are legal mechanisms that Joe Six-pack can tap into that will minimize, if not squash "taxation without legal representation!" And I have and I will likely do so in the future. We just gotta do it, it takes energy and good common sense.

    NAP, you will, I hope, keep us all updated about how and why you return in kind. I, for one, look forward to reading about it.

    I'd just love to see more common sense. And have it not be labeled liberal. It takes working together with your fellow Americans who may like to characterize you as the enemy.

    I actually hear Americans talk about certain regions of the country as "enemy territory".

    No Joke.
