my friend obviously you have never seen war, seen what it does to people, i have if we were to go to war with our own government, it wouldnt be two days before foreign troops moved in to snatch what land the could, our nation would be torn apart as quickly as a pack of heyenas tear apart a gazelle and make no mistake we would be powerless to stop it, and yes, these natural disasters would have a drastic effect on our combat effectiveness we would have little chance against our own government not to mention the jackals abroad that will be fighting over the scraps, also i never said i supported the war in iraq/afghanistan stop assuming i do im not saying im better than you because ive seen war im just willing to look at a subject from all possible angles as you should my friend, i see your point, i do, but its the point of a hotheaded american bieng caught up in all this political fervor

I never said war with our own government, I said remove the current Government authority and replace it. I believe this could be done peacefully, and through the rights given to us in our Constitution. 300,000,000 american citizens should not have less power than 545 members of the three branches of Government. It would be a simple matter of "We're voting you out, get lost" and having the new congress/judges/executive branch set different limits, as I described before. I never said Go to war with our government, In fact I stated elsewhere that I would like a nonviolent solution; death is not necessary to overthrow, at least the optimist in me says. (Also Hyenas generally do not hunt. They are scavengers primarily, and the lions/cheetahs/etc generally do the hunting and get scared off by the hyenas. I got your point, I'm just picky.)

*edit. 70 hours for 2 weeks. subtract that, making it 47 hours a week before factoring in the baby, which I forgot to do in the comment. Assume I need to watch her 30 hours a week when Her mom or my friend cannot. I still only have 17 hours a week.

let us assume you make ~$8400/yr before taxes.This puts you in the 10% tax bracket which puts you at $7560/yr. Assuming the 52 week year this means you earn ~ $146/week, meaning you work 16 hours a week. Lets assume an average community college tuition of (public, in district)—$2,963 for 12 credits. This means you have class for 12 hours every week (+ or - 2 hours for some courses with labs). in total, you are using only 28 hours in a week and that leaves you with 140 hours of free time. Assuming 7 hours of sleep and 24 hours of studying, this leaves you with 67 hours ($580@ $8.65/hr - time is money after all) you COULD be working. what is my point you are wondering? You are a lazy shit that likes to blame the rich for all of his problems, when in fact you are the only person to hold any blame. Fuck you, and have a wonderful life.

Firstly, when I got the job, it was in Early may, and I was still in High School. I was hired at $7.50 an hour. Calculate that into your equation. I didn't get a raise until Mid-November, where I was bumped up to $8 an hour. I only got the $0.65 raise maybe two months ago. I was going to school 35 hours a week, and working 20-25. When I graduated in June, I started taking a few extra shifts, working about 30 hours a week. Around this time last year, tourist season picked up as football season began, and they needed me more and more. From October until March, I got overtime every single week. Of course, at $7.50 and $8 an hour, overtime isn't much, especially when it was only 4 or 5 hours of overtime each week.

For this Pay period, which ends Tomorrow, I will have clocked in right around 70 hours for the week, on top of me going to school 8 hours a day 4 days a week since mid-august. Also factor in that I have a 10 month old child that happened despite Birth Control Pills and Condoms, and I do not have very much down time.

8 hours of school 4 days a week, so 8*4=32

70 hours of work +32 hours of school=102

Factor in that I go to school 45 mins away from my house:

45*8(there and back)=360 mins, /60=6 hours of driving

108 hours so far.

Factor in sleep time at around 5 hours a day, so 5*7=35

108+35=143 hours.

I do a lot of studying via Audiobooks, usually while doing other tasks, but I do have textbook work and papers to write, so say another 10 hours a week doing that.

143+10=153 hours.

I work 10 mins from my house and 35 mins from school. about 3 days a week I go directly from school to work, and the remaining 2-3 days I work I leave from home. Let's round and say 90 mins of driving to work from school, and another 90 mins driving home from work, and to and from my house to and from work, making another 180 mins of driving, which is three hours.

156 hours of total occupied time, give or take ten. 168 hours in a week, minus 156 hours occupied leaves 12 hours a week I could be doing something other than what I am doing now.

But it's cool for you to assume I'm lazy as fuck. It seems that a lot of people on the site are assuming so.

Our elections aren't rigged, they seem like that because of the electoral college system of voting that our country uses, which I'm not fond of, but its better than nothing.

Our country is not a democracy, its a republic. Although they appear the same, they are actually very different. You could look up "Democracy vs Republic", I'm sure that would explain it much better than I could.

And it is possible to pass that tax plan, but for the 3 presidents ideas, it wouldn't happen. The constitution cannot be changed. Although it can be amended, the original base cannot be changed, as it is "above the law".. Unless you want to get rid of our current constitution and draft another.

One more thing, about the tax plan. Think of it this way. If we over tax the super rich, the ones that own all the corporations and companies, they will have less money to hire people, support charities, and fund other projects. I know you think that they are taxing their personal money, and that if we didn't tax them they would keep all that money to themselves, but in reality that is not the truth. Your boss is 1 of many asshole bosses, but a lot aren't like that. A lot of CEOs donate heavily to charities, hire lots of people and pay them well, and fund hundreds of projects to make this world a better one.

See that's the thing with the electoral colleges though: They do not do what the people want them to do. Saying it's better than nothing is like saying having a bicycle with a knife as a seat and broken wheels is better than no transportation. It may get you somewhere, but odds are it's not where you wanted to be, and not in the condition you would like to be in. The elections ARE rigged, because the people of the country do not have a real say in who gets elected, the electoral colleges do. The colleges are supposed to vote according to the majority rule of the citizens of the state, but they do not have to. This is not the way it should be. I understand the reasoning for it, as a large portion of the voting population is unaware of the full details of either candidate, but they are still the citizens, and have a right to vote for who they choose.

As for out country being a republic, yes, this is true. However, even in a republic the people still have the right to change what the government does, albeit in a slower way.

There is nothing in the constitution that says there cannot be three leaders in the executive branch. With the cabinet system, it almost works like that anyway. When the Constitution was written, there were 13 Colonies. Now there are 50 states, DC and Puerto Rico. This is too much for one man to manage alone along with military and economic matters. There is room for a revision to allow this without undermining the entire document.

As for the tax plan, it is a much more fair way to do things. 15% for ALL american citizens is better than 17% for some, and 50% for others, and 0% for another group. Some CEOs are good, but economics is about the bottom line. How often do you hear about CEOs who have millions in their bank accounts letting go of a few hundred employees because the company is not making enough? Me, if I had a 7 figure salary, and there was the option of cutting my own pay or firing hundreds of people who rely on a 5 figure income, I would take a figure off of my own pay. Of course, I am the minority. Look at the Auto company CEOs that flew their multimillion dollar private jets to a meeting to request a bailout! Those are the people that run this country. They had the money to fix the company right there in their bank accounts, but they chose to ask the government to fix their mistake. There are good bosses who would spend their own money to save others, and almost all big money people donate to charity, but not always for the right reasons. Many donate simply to get the tax write-off. I think that's bullshit. But O'm just a 19-year old kid working a dead-end job to put himself through college and support his family. I know nothing of the business and economic world.

That is what I made last year. There is no bias to that statement.
