Please explain what you mean by this:

“the more the government “helps” you the more they OWN you…"

Please lay out your concept of “help” and how one can be owned by the government. What are the specific implications of being owned by the government?

Are there ever instances when help can be a good thing?

For instance, if you woke up tomorrow with a deadly disease that could be treated, but it would cost $1 million for the treatment and you didn’t have the $1 million or have any friends with $1 million, would it be ok for tax payer dollars to help save your life? Or would you prefer to die in defense of your political philosophy?

the truth is that the GBO estimates that it will cost only 1 million dollars to implement.

If you believe this you will believe anything. Furthermore why should we continue to aid countries that don’t help their selves. Nor do we need the UN in our affairs.

Mormons believe in Jesus as the Christ, so that makes them Christian even if they differ in some other ways from most “Christian” denominations. That many denominations refuse to acknowledge other denominations as “Christian” floors me. Far as I’m concerned, ALL organized religions are authoritarian, dogmatic nonsense, which has harmed humanity far more than it has ever helped.

Why is it the responsibility of the United States taxpayers to pay even $1 to a foreign country? ITS NOT! We pay taxes in this country FOR our country…that is unless you are a foreigner and want to see the bankruptcy of America!
