    We are overtaxed, but more importantly; our tax dollars are spent frivolously.

    I made no such agreement or signed no such contract with federal, state or local governments to pay them x amount of my income for their "services". Neither has anyone else. They just take it against your will.

    All taxation is theft. All.

    Not until we objectively cut all noncritical spending, foreign aid financed with debt, and questionable military adventures. Then if the books are still out of balance, raising taxes would seem a more reasonable prospect.

    Actually, it seems I picked the wrong answer, but whatever. It's not quite so simple.

    In 2008, the country elected Barack Obama to clean up Washington and lead the economic restoration of our country based upon his following campaign promises:

    "Today I'm pledging to cut the deficit we inherited in half by the end of my first term in office." (Spoken at the opening of the fiscal responsibility summit on Feb. 23, 2009.)


    "We will launch a sweeping effort to root out waste, inefficiency and unnecessary spending in our government, and every American will be able to see how and where we spend taxpayer dollars by going to a new website called recovery.gov." (Spoken in a speech Jan. 28, 2009.)

    "There is no doubt that we've been living beyond our means, and we're going to have to make some adjustments. Now, what I've done throughout this campaign is to propose a net spending cut." (Spoken during a presidential debate Oct. 15, 2008.)

    "Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase -- not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes." (Spoken in September 2008 at a town hall meeting in Dover, N.H.)

    people want to re-elect President Obama? Why?

    The problem with taxation in this country is that so much of it is priced into the commodities we buy. Many don't know they are there without researching. Example: fuel charges.

    If you take a look at the OECD figures on tax revenue as a percentage of GDP, America could levy higher taxes and still have a smaller tax to GDP ratio than just about any modern economy. The deficit could be brought down much quicker or the money could be used to fund middle-class tax cuts and help reduce personal debt levels or, even better, the anaemic level of consumer demand in the economy.

    Really stupid choices. No, we are not Overtaxed, we are Overspent. Write to Rep. Boehner and ask him to permit a debate in the House on cutting spending and see
    if that would help. When was the last debate about reduced spending in the House?

    How did president Banana get his wealth? He sold a couple of books about his self and the rest has been at the expense of taxpayers. All he knows is how to spend other people's money.

    The Bumbler-in-Chief has proven himself to be in way over his head. Now it's time to get an adult back into the White House to clean up the mess that the child was was made.

    Do you think Obama might have been cutting his Economics classes in college to go blow a doobie? Hmmmmm. He is an economic dope

    Hey, don't forget: All of Obama's economic theories work great on a college chalkboard.

    take the greatest, freeist, and most prosperous free market capitalist nation in the history of the planet; a nation that has fed the world, brought tremendous scientific, medical, and technological advances for the betterment of mankind, and elect a communist as it's president.

    I don't want a "nanny state."

    While Europeans might enjoy a higher standard of living in some countries, there is a handful of Europeans paying the tax bill and resenting the hell out of it.

    We are overtaxed when illegal aliens have a higher standard of living than some American Citizens in their own country. Last year, most of my daughter's best buddies were ESL students, mostly illegals from Mexico. She could not understand why we said "no" to free lunch and breakfast for her while her friends had it. I told her that we would much rather pack them up and send them back to Mexico.

    We are overtaxed when people making just above minimum wage are paying taxes to provide "free" cell phones to people on welfare. Oh yes, my daughter's friends all have the modern up to date phones with all of the apps while my wife and I have voice phones and texting, nothing else. Yes, I resent that my taxes provide that for them when I cannot afford such amenities myself.

    We need to have a big roundup of illegal aliens and send them back. We also need to clean up our welfare rolls of any able bodied people who refuse to work but milk the system.

    And don't forget to buld the wall, 30 feet into the ground, 20 feet thick at the base and 80 feet high.

    We are nearing $16 Trillion in debt.

    We have record breaking deficits.

    We have record breaking home and business bankruptcies.

    We haven't seen this kind of poverty level in well over 50 years.

    We have over 25 million Americans without a job.

    While the mainstream does not show the reality of the fact
