  •  My point was that your rights have zero to do (0+ / 0-)

    with how much taxes you pay, if at all. They are the same for everyone, period.

    •  If you want to win an argument, (0+ / 0-)

      you sometimes have to think about what the other person thinks is fair or important. I think you have rights as long as you're breathing - gender, nationality, sexual preference, ability/disability, etc. should make no difference to rights.  But that's not what the people I'm trying to convince believe.

      •  It doesn't matter what they believe (0+ / 0-)

        It matters what legislators and the courts believe, which is increasingly what you and I believe, and there aren't enough people who hold such beliefs left anymore to elect enough officials and appoint enough judges to change that.
