Exclamation 2009 Political Question Poll! #2 - Get It Out Of Our Systems Now!

Ok guys, here is Poll #2.

Poll # 1 which was a question about taxes came out that a 10% flat income tax by itself would be the most supported option of those who took the poll.

Now, question #2 - Firearms ownership - "To what degree does the 2nd amendment apply?"

Yes, But my paypal is low and can't afford to buy cards. With all these taxes at least they could do is give the Military a huge pay raise. That way I could be posting something in the box breaks.

Agree with raising military pay, 100%. Also educators and several other underpaid positions.

Not true. Many work 12 months a year.

You guys are right though, who gives a #@#@#@#@ about education these days. I almost totally forgot which forum I was on for a minute.

Kind of a shitty thing to imply to a military man in this thread, don't you think? I'm sure he's WELL paid for what little he does for you, right?

Thanks man. But as you know because you're smart we don't do it for the money. We do it because someone has to and sometimes it for other things like God, Country, Family, Honor, Courage, and Commitment. I know why I do things.

The Country as a whole is thankful and appreciative of everything that the Military does for us! Don't let some elitists in Washington, MSNBC and chat rooms make you think otherwise.

He can't. He's scared. Ron, You know as much as I do. People fear standing up for more than themselves. It takes a certain person to stand for something bigger than them. I bet this guy would be the first person to walk the other way if someone was getting beat up in an ally.

I don't think I'll get any responses to my Camera question in the "Off Topic" forum if these Political Threads don't keep getting hit.

I wasn't being smart or ungreatful, I was stating a fact. That is how everyone usually feels no matter what their job is.

Like some have said, they enlist in what they believe in. They don't enlist to get credit or to be paid a ton. They do it because that's what they believe in and the honor to serve the country.

WHY AM I BEING HARASSED ON HERE, please tell me that. Why am I being insulted?

Why are people questioning my morals and saying I wouldn't help anyone? It makes me sick when people make assumptions like that.
