  • The individuals! You earn it, its yours to spend as you see fit. (this is why I support the fair tax, a 25% sales tax, and no more income taxes). Then you are charged taxes by your spending, not by your earnings.

  • That's a no-brainer. Individuals should decide how to spend the money they make. If they earned it, it's theirs I supported Huckabbe too!

  • Read up on Capitalism. The problem is greed, like we have now with the foreclosures. People get greedy and take advantages they shouldn't. They talk about it under Capitalism. That is why they say their is NO true Capitalist government. Their has to be some government control or the rich would have it all and others would pretty much be working slaves. That was why union were formed, because of mistreatment, poor wages. People were living so poorly, crime, disease was causing havoc. If it was up to us, majority would not give anything to gov. anyway.

  • No Obama supporters will answer this question if they truly believe in Obama because they would have to answer the government because that is what Obama believes. Of the individuals should decide.

  • The individuals should decide. Fair tax plan - the best plan I've heard in a long while.


    Oh, by the way SheriSanches, I'm an Obama supporter.

    IMO~A MAJOR Problem with foreclosures today is the Corrupt Democrats(Frank and Dodd) who took advantage of a free market and withheld from encouraging reform because they had Fannie/Freddie and others giving them deals on Mortgage, etc... McCain tried to reform and the Democrats wanted to take advantage of the situation for their own gain... Obama, Pelosi, Frank and Dodd don't care about the American people, they care about themselves and their far left agenda...

    Not sure you answered the question.

    Is your answer that you believe the government should best determine how money gets distributed throughout an organized society, or should those who create the wealth best determine how it gets distributed?,
