That's pretty much what I'm asking. I'm not asking you to add up the hundreds of little taxes and fees and figure out how much taxes we'd need to charge everyone to meet our needs, I'm asking how much of someone's income they should have to "owe" to society. If you think the government should scale back spending dramatically in certain sectors, your figures will reflect that.

Which is where I'm coming from with my 10% figure.

IMO it is just that sort of scaling-back that is called for. IMO a *HUGE* fraction of what government now does it shouldn't be doing with.

Because, IMO, the people who work for the government and do those things are *not* better at doing them just because they happen to get paid by the government for doing them.

And many of them are, ahem, a lot worse.

Again, IMO.

None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.
