Left-Wing Nut >> an afternoon in the park with a loved one can bring me immense joy, yet I don't have to spend a penny.

But someone does. Therefore, while you may benefit personally from having the government force people to pay for things that you enjoy, is that a moral thing to do? Is it moral to benefit from the proceeds of theft, even if that theft is condoned by the majority will of the electorate?

Are there no higher laws than that of the government? What if the government said it was alright to loot from rich people's houses, would that make it moral? If you don't think so, what is the difference between that and what the government does through income taxes?

My advice to you LWN is to give back in equal proportions for the things that you receive. If you benefit $20 worth from using that park, give $20 dollars back to the city...

Luke 6:31 "As you would like people to do to you, do exactly so to them.

Luke 6:38 "Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be given to you. For with the same measure you measure it will be measured back to you."

Resources are never in short supply for those who live in faith, only those who live in fear.
