Post Question for liberals about the purpose of money
Serious question. I want to know what you guys think about this:

Do you agree with the Michigan Congressman that the money spent for bailouts, running government, social programs, etc. "isn't our money?"

A brief justification would also help with the discussion. I'm not trying to criticize, I just want to know where you guys are on the political spectrum.

Post Re: Question for liberals about the purpose of money
I would have to disagree with Republican Rep. Keith Knollenberg on this issue.

Of course the money is the people's money. In our system of government, taxes are assessed and collected by the government from its citizens. Said funds are used to provide services, build infrastructure, maintain a national defense....etc. There, I have demonstrated a 2nd grade knowledge of government. This guy is clearly an idiot.

Here's my equally simple and insulting poll:

Do conservatives believe, like Sen. Ted Stevens, that the internet is really a system of tubes?

Also, this is technically a question about who has propietary rights to tax revenue. A poll about the purpose of money would have choices such as:

A. Legal tender to be used for the purchase of goods and services
B. The method by which men get women totally out of their league/age range
