The government. We can't avoid their scams. People could choose to not invest with Bernie.
Blessed, you need a bit of a reality check. Let's see - you said:
"ok first off your an idiot!" - classic. It's y-o-u ' r-e, as in "you are." You could at least avoid simple grammatical errors if you're going to insult somebody's intelligence.
"what the government takes from us is called taxes! and if noone payed taxes America would look like a 3rd world country or worse!" - grammar mistakes aside, this is generally a correct statement. The ignorance begins to appear with the following:
"do you like driving on the highways? what do you think pays for them? TAXES" - The beginning of a sentence should start with a capital letter. Anyway, I do enjoy driving on the highways. What I don't enjoy, however, are the frequent potholes and collapsing bridges. I don't enjoy getting stuck in traffic because of horrendous lack of planning. Did you ever notice how the roads are the last things to get upgraded, AFTER they've built too many residential neighborhoods? And I love passing a highway under construction, only to see 5 out of 7 guys just sitting around doing nothing. Yep, that's our tax dollars at work. Perhaps the tax revenue is being misspent?
"do you like your children to get a free education at school until there done with highschool? TAXES pay for that." - It's t-h-e-y ' r-e (as in "they are") - I don't have any children, but if I did, I wouldn't like them getting educated at public school. Have you noticed how there are tons of problems with public schools, and our nation's test scores seem to be getting lower? It doesn't seem like our tax money is doing much for public education. Perhaps the tax revenue is being misspent?
"if someone was robbing your house would you like to call 911? well TAXES pay for the police." - No, I'd rather grab the gun I own, the right to which is granted by the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, and shoot them. The police are practically worthless. Even cops themselves will admit they don't exist to stop crime, they are there to investigate it.
"God forbid your house is burning the ambulance who pays for there services? TAXES!" - It's interesting how you managed to remember to capitalize the word "God." And how on earth is my house going to burn "the" ambulance? Horrendous grammar aside, there's actually a proposal in towns around my area that are going to start requiring people to pay for ambulance services. Now, with all that tax money, why would we the people have to pay for ambulance service? Perhaps the tax revenue is being misspent?
"maybe they tax too much but taxes will never go away." - I don't think very many people expect taxes to go away. What we expect is that the government spends them in a responsible way. Of course, that notion is about as likely as taxes going away.
"what Bernie Madoff did was wrong. he took from the rich because those are the main ones who invest." - I'm not rich, but I invest. It's called a 401K plan. I'm guessing you are too young to know what that is.
"but if you wouldve given him money you betcha he wouldve tooken it as well. he didn't care whether you were rich or poor" - tooken is not a word. That's what that big red line means when you are posting.
