Smeagle... you have consistently spouted crap that is clearly socialist and you consistently want a hand-out from the government. You take ZERO responsibility for yourself.
Sorry to point out the obvious.
keep watching TV and reporting on what you see.
Clearly any fiscal CONSERVATIVE ( which you seem to abhor) will prefer a tax with proper incentives. I don't want to PAY for your choices. If you choose to leave your lights on all the time and use a shitload of electricity... why should I pay for it (ergo we meter electricity and pay for use). Same for garbage collection... in our city you pay for collection based on the SIZE of the garbage can you request.
These are logical. I don't know how or why you would argue that EVERYONE should pay the same amount.
That's not fiscal conservatism as I know it.
So again, take those left wing crazy ideas elsewhere.
