If what goes on in someone's bedroom is none of MY business, then WHY am I being asked to pay for the supplies and consequences?

Because the government forgot it was the MAJORITY vote that counted and decided to listen to the minority. The few who see that the minority have turned something normal into something obscene, try to talk sense into those who like to ruin lives and lie to the "dumbed down" Americans. Those dumbed down parents allow their dumbed down children to get pregnant and not take responsibility for their actions. So the easy way out of responsibility is murder. If you try and tell a liberal this they will tell you that all us conservatives need to "wake up to the new way we do things here, because the world is changing." It is ok to make debrakcarey pay for others not taking responsibility for their actions, REGARDLESS of their political, or religious views. If debrakcarey does not like the way the world is headed then she had better just find an island and make up her own constitution. One that does not change meanings over time. One that will be set in stone, and was not meant to be changed because it applies for everyone in any time period. Wait... Just a minute... I hear the liberals clapping at my genius. Well, it was short lived. Because the reality of the matter is that the liberals have their "tolerate everything except intolerance" hats on. While us conservatives have our "Lets follow the constitution as it was set before us, and stop being dumbed down America!!!" banners flying high above us. You asked why you have to pay for others stupidity.. because you and I and every other conservative are the majority. We believe in building families, and our nation with truth and love. Liberals believe in destroying these wonderful GOD given rights. That is why.

Believing Christians are being asked to pay taxes to a government that funds Planned Parenthood. PP does abortions. I believe abortions are murder. I'm being asked also, through the ACA to fund so called 'free' contraceptives. But they're not 'free' if I have to pay for them through my taxes. And it doesn't matter that I disagree with the lifestyles of most of those using them. Or that Churches who run hospitals, adoption facilites, charities, and schools, are being made to pay for 'insurance' to cover these things against their teachings and doctrines. When will people realize that if the government can make believing Christians do something or fund something against their beliefs, they can also make the unbelievers do or fund something against their choice? Loved your response.

This is one of those "It's ok if you're a republican" moments isn't it? I asked a question about it and used religion as an example and Deb decided to just state it was because I hated religion and falsely accused me of bringing it up in many conversations and then you do and it is suddenly ok. Interesting. However, I agree with NOT making churches pay for birth control for their employees. As for everything else, we all have to pay taxes for things we don't believe in as I pointed out at the end of my post above. This is no different. I have to pay taxes to a government that goes and fights what I consider pointless, idiotic wars and to keep our troops in other countries. You have to pay taxes to a government that wants to take care of all its citizens and not just you. The laws in this country that are not GOD given, but MAN given. There are countries you can move to in which everything is based on your god. The constitution is not the ten commandments. They are not god given rights but rights that man came up with that they felt we should follow. That is what laws are. And another thing... most people in this country are atheist. It is conservative values that pull most of the young people away from it. I believe in following the constitution too, stop trying to vote for people who plan to make amendments to their own beliefs then. Otherwise you don't want to follow the constitution but what you feel it should be.

Good point. When our government was formed its sole purpose was to protect the fledgling nation from all enemies without and within. Now look what it's turned into. It has no right to use our tax money for BC or any of the hundreds of programs it wastes money on.

I know you understand the Cloward Pivens strategy; overwhelm the system so it crashes and causes an uprising, so the Marxists can then offer full blown socialism to rescue the 'downtrodden masses'. We've been watching this play out for the last generation. And the froggy sits in the pot of slowly heating water and doesn't even try to jump.

Do you include the military being stationed in other countries as one of those things it wastes money on? What about the programs to help people start businesses? The programs that help people pay for college in order to work for bigger companies? How about making sure the food you eat isn't contaminated when it comes in from other countries? How about all the money they give to other countries and such? And other such programs with the first and last question being something I believe this country wastes too much tax payer money on.

I agree with you, Debra. That would also start healthy competition among the states--people would move to those states who managed things better, who had better schools, and thus provide revenue to improve those things even more. The states who did poor jobs would be forced to improve if they wanted to increase their numbers and thus their revenue and services. Capitalism at its best and everyone benefits. As for military spending, it's a bad time to cut back and after all, that's our gov't's main job, protecting our shores and our constitution. I think it's folly right now to drastically cut the budget but I've nothing against making it more financially efficient.

You are not being asked to pay for the the abortions or the contraceptives. No where does the ACA ask you to pay for it. It is coming out of the government has, which they took by threat of force. Pay or go to jail. I don't see where that is asking, the money is being taken against your will. This administration sees any attempt on your part to avoid paying taxes by following the law (tax deductions) as your being guilty of wrong doing.

Yes, I guess using 'forced' would have been better choice of words. I read on FB from a Constitutionalist a fine article on the 16th amendment and its unconstitutional grab at our wallets and bank accounts. But America would have to be ready to accept a Libertarian on Constitutionalist President and Congress before anything could be done about it. And that isn't going to happen. So....we do what we CAN do and try to limit its effects on us I guess.

Yeha, bobmnu...that is even worse. We aren't being "asked" we are being "forced". People aren't seeing that!

I absolutely do not understand how people can think government should be provider of so many things of life.. do they think there is a magic tree in the whitehouse back yard? And once the expenses of government outweigh that which supports it, what then? And that's not even the worst aspect of all this. A government which giveth can taketh away.. and a government large enough, with a large enough reach to provide most things of life, is a government way too big and powerful, and it's not in government's nature to give up all that power once granted it. What happens if serious shortages should occur? Will politicians and government equally share all these things of life we put into their hands? Anyone who thinks so, is extremely naive. "Free stuff, or freedom?" Most high profile dictators started out promising many great gifts, benevolence and benefits to the citizenry they were thus given great powers from. The U.S. checks on power (which includes states rights vs sweeping federal edicts and mandates) and the constitution were formed to strongly check powers of government.

I am sickened by those Americans who do not know these very fundemental facts about the form of Government, the role of that government, and the duties of citizens in that government. To actually ARGUE in favor of their own enslavement is disgusting.

The new healthcare reform law does take my tax money to pay for these things. And It is not the 'free clinic' I am worried about Hatley. Those usually are community supported and the money used for them come from voluntary community support. I also am so sorry for how you were treated. It was reprehensible.
