    If you don't believe me, just quit paying your taxes for a while and see if people with guns don't come visit you.

    No, you owe ME a Coke.

    Not to get all squishy in this awesome argument.. but I am so appreciating the sentiments being similar here. I don't feel so out of place.

    You're not getting it, mister. I have it on good authority that you have a whole CASE of Coke in your garage (I've been checking up on your financial records, you see). Therefore, I'm entitled to at least one of your Cokes. Otherwise it would be unfair.

    Right now we have the largest drop in the markets after an election in HISTORY. The Dow is down 362 now. Obama wants to bankrupt the coal industry, raise capital gains taxes, raise taxes on the rich, and possibly even move the government to take over our 401K's. Jeez.

    I'm with Kyuuei. This is a good discussion because both sides are being heard. I am reading and thinking about all the posts.

    I am not a soda drinker, actually. Although, this article kinda makes me think I should start:

    I don't know if someone has already mentioned this, but personally, I think redistribution of wealth is a great thing, and I really wish people would stop having a knee jerk reaction to the mention of redistributing wealth. In fact, I think any long term succesful foriegn policy would have to involve a huge-scale redistribution of wealth from rich to poor countries. So who cares whether something is a 'socialist' agenda or not. And dropping the "S" word definately shouldn't be enough to convince anyone anything. People use buzzwords to avoid the fact that they don't know what they're talking about. It's a cop-out.

    Those poor poor rich people. They might 'only' be able to own four houses.

    We really need two countries. Or maybe, just the crisis this country is going to face as it tries to adopt extreme left policies to deal with its problems. As the people realize, ONCE AGAIN, that it doesn't work, they will swing back into the other direction and hopefully stop at the middle.
