Gee, I thought the Republican Party favored small government and

low taxes. I suppose that is just a slogan; pablum for the masses.

With the economy on the rocks, these brilliant senators now want to destroy small retailers by burdening them with added cost and regulations to collect taxes for states. I am sure the retail giants love this bill because it helps eliminate their competition.

As with most government, it is a matter of the individual bending over and grabbing his ankles. This is just another measure to feed the spendthrift government sector at the expense of the productive public. More taxes equals less freedom and more economic destruction.

Oh well. Looks like we are one step closer to revolution and rolling out the guillotines.

When you are ruled by an aristocracy for the benefit of the aristocracy, what else would you expect but more for them and less for you.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

You thought?

That they liked freedom more than money???Why did they force Romney on us.

BUMP

I mean the 'items for sale' section.

i called my senators, emailed, signed the petition from Rand..

I shared the petition on my facebook, forwarded emails about it every time I received one. Today I saw that it was going to come up and I was afraid to turn on cspan. This is very depressing..

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

Where is the petition?

The only petition I saw was from John Tate, but the wording was using name calling and stuff so I felt that I couldn't put my name behind it. Can someone put a link to the one from Rand Paul?

Saw an interesting connection, reading your post

For some reason, seeing "cspan" in lowercase made my pattern-matcher show me "hey that has almost the same letters as cispa". I wonder if that was intentional, to confuse listeners of people who say "I don't like CISPA" into thinking they're saying they don't like CSPAN? Which is somewhat insidious, to have the undercurrent thought "we shouldn't be able to watch our politicians, they deserve their privacy" etc.

Or perhaps it's just a coincidence. Anyway, my pattern-matcher is fun to play with. :)

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
