I don't tend to mark your comments down unless I truly think you're taking things to the ridiculous extreme.

You have the right to express your views and the readers of this site have the right to downvote them, there's nothing wrong with that. If you want to express your views in a forum where you can't be voted down, start your own blog. ;) I, for one, love arguing with those on the right.

It all depends on your idea of what the truth is. You seem to think it's all about the free market. I happen to think that there's truly no such thing and that government has a significant role to play in our lives by doing things that we, as individuals, are unable or unwilling to do.

Like provide LRT service, collect our garbage, maintain our roads, etc....

I'm also a huge believer in health care and low cost education as well. I view people as an investment. Keep them healthy and educate them and you'll get a much more productive society, which results in a broader tax base.

YMMV (and I know it does!)

For the record I've been self-employed for 13 years now, hired someone and made him a partner about 5 years ago and just hired someone again yesterday, so I know all about working without a safety net.
