    Since I believe in leadership by example I would have to follow the example set forth by the Vice President of my country and say "YES".
    That is pretty weak personally. Leadership by example implies that you will do what someone else does despite the fact that you think it is wrong. That is pretty bad.

    In all fairness, I believed just the opposite until Cheney's actions.
    But he challenged it legally if I recall. This changes things doesn't it?

    Part of Kerry's plan is to start taxing "heavily" at $200,000.00

    That's a pretty "average" level for small business's, which are becoming the largest segment of employers.

    Do you know why we put up with income tax?

    Because due to the employer withholding money, you don't really notice it's gone. It's done that way on purpose. If we (as a nation) had to write a check for our income tax, we would demand change immediately. Write your Reps and Senators, tell them to abolish withholding

    While we are on the subject of taxes, if we must have income tax as a means of generating wealth for the Federal Government, then a flat tax would be the most fair solution.

    Even better would be to abolish the Income Tax and go to a National Sales Tax.

    No, but of all the women he was accused of going after, and considering he was President of The United States of America, you would think that he would have gotten a better looking one don't you? I mean not one of them was exactly teh best looking you know what I mean?

    Why must we judge a person on their physical appearance? there are a great many people who are judged to be "Plain" who have an inner beauty that far outweighs the stereotyped "Beauty queens"

    Um, because most people do not become intimately involved with someone that they do not find attractive physically and then come to enjoy their other merits.

    Just me though but I could wrong. It has been known to happen on a rare occassion.

    Uh huh. But apparently you would do the same. Leadership by example and all.

    I don't hear any criticism from the GOP. It must be okay.

    I must ask if you will ever answer a question with your own thoughts and without a smart comment? From many of the answers proctored by you I never seem to get a clear cut yes or no, just some snyde comment about how if this group says it is OK then it must be, but I don't seem to get a feel about how you feel as an individual.

    Just an observation.
