Conservatives do not wish for "no" taxes.

Just where did you get that, anyway?

What we wish for is low taxes.

I just want the government cut back to the basics that were provided for in the Constitution. Unfortunately, our Federal Gov't has become akin to a charity for a substantial number of people and a community of its own that is ever-growing and consuming the host (taxpayers) to feed its massive size. It exists to exist. Those in the government (elected and unelected bureaucrats) have lost touch with the taxpayer and have come to believe that we exist to serve them.

Why does the left not see that the Government brings in far more than they need, and wastes a good share of it?

I truly believe Democrats, and maybe even some Republicans, want to bankrupt this country, so they can give themselves even more power and control.
