  • I would rather keep more of my money and give to charities that actually give hand ups to people in my community. Many charities are better at spending my money than the Government is.

  • I would rather not have tax dollars, Social Security,or Medicare taken out of my paycheck each payday. Particularly Social Security and Medicare because apparently those two will be dried up before I am eligible to use them.

  • If I could decide where I spent my money instead of it being decided for me, I would give more to my church, to the charities that I want to see my dollars go too, I would support certain issues that I feel strongly about not have that decision made for me especially things im totally against.

  • Neither. Support a politician who supports REAL charity, not forced.

  • Well I don't have a job anymore but I would love for us to be able to keep my husband's taxes. I would use it to pay my student loans and to also put into a savings account for our child.

    Blow up a kid in Iraq? Are you freakin' kidding me. Maybe you should talk to the next suicide bomber, that seems to be the only violence I hear coming from Iraq.
