Well I must say that your arrogance is pretty impressive. I do not like where all tax money is spent but you know what it isn't all about me or what I would like, there are things that money should go to and there are things that are necessary evils. In this country we try to avoid children starving in the street etc. The government also pays for breast reductions. I realize that you feel you have some superior knowledge and understanding and that by putting me into a box of what you call 'typical' you can somehow validate your own ideas by belittling mine. I do not have to go look up any past questions etc as I have the ability to ask my own here, as I have done and talk to people now...no one said you needed to answer me...I'm not entirely sure or not if you think speaking down to people makes you look smart or if you are just normally like that...whether or not I read political threads here or elsewhere is not your concern, you obviously feel that being liberal is bad, which was the point, you somehow think that because I have certain ideas that I don't understand certain things yet you know nothing about me...the idea that you make such generalizations about people who ask questions like mine or hold ideas like mine are exactly why the questions need to be asked, you come across seeming like you feel you are better then other people....do you really think that is a good thing?
Ehh, I've been through this all before. We're going down the wrong road. Your basic question is very broad and hard to answer. There's no simple way to answer. I'm just saying that these kinds of things take time to understand and getting into the conversations will help you understand better than trying to find an answer.
