That must be that funny math I have heard of. Not paying income taxes means keeping all of the money you make; if we were to receive money, said money would come from an alternative source.
The other crap you were yapping about in regards to "impulsive spending" (yadda, yadda, yadda.), I have already addressed. Reparations are essentially a law suit, and as I stated in my 1st post on this thread..
"The defendant makes no demands on what the plaintiff should with the compensation he has won..The plaintiff can burn the money if he so desired.."
quote:As far as restoring the right to vote to felons--bad idea. First of all, voting was the last thing on most of these felons minds or they wouldn't have gotten thrown in prison to begin with. If you want to restore voting priveledges to felons then what would be the point of taking their voting priviledges from them to begin with? ironazz
You say some of the dumbest stuff! Voting ironazz, is a right, not a privilege. Even though you are in jail you still have your rights. The inequity of the suspension of voting rights to felons is a topic for another thread, but answer me this ironazz. Since felon's caint vote, should they still have to pay the same rate of income tax as everybody else? Because currently they still have to pay taxes for a government they have no input on.
quote:As we have already seen in the last election, we know what can happen to convicted felons when they are in the process of having their voting priviledges re-instated. In Florida, even though hundreds of felons were so-called re-instated, they couldn't vote and the answer still isn't clear as to why hundreds of felons couldn't vote in the sunshine state.
You have no idea what you are talking about. Go read some more. I have read extensively on Florida 2000. I would be happy to give you links (valid ones) that would cure you of your ignorance on the subject.
