I keep reading these comments all over the Internet since the election:

"Enjoy your free stuff from Obama you moochers!" and phrases to that effect. Like ONLY Obama supporters enjoy the "free" things from the government that we get.... you know, stuff like roads, police, fire department, and what-not. Oh yeah, and don't forget that bucket load of welfare checks that I get daily for "free" even though I voted for Obama and make over $400k/year.

Hey Republicans.... it's not FREE. We ALL pay for it. It's called government infrastructure. It's what keeps you safe at home in your bed at night! I have news for you: Your single handgun under your pillow isn't the only thing protecting you and your home. AND I HELPED PAY FOR IT. So stop with the bullshit "free" argument.

I have an idea. If you voted for Romney you can opt-out and choose to pay no taxes, and in effect, no government services. Agreed? You can do the homeschooling, you can be locked up in your home (until your bank screws you and takes your house, or robbers break in), and you can drive your car through the forest to get the job you have where your boss can pay you $0.12/hr.

Oh and by the way, I support getting taxes for high incomes, which is ME, so fuck YOU for being so greedy. YOU are greedy, not me. Now isn't that ironic....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
