that homemade rocket launcher rules. 4 rockets!!! You know.... I *am* getting tired of one-shot launchers. Sure, UT2004's launcher can launch 3... but it only has 1 hole to shoot out of, and that's just not cool enough. :-P
Um as for taxes, well I agree mostly. But I dunno man, California is the world's 5th largest economy, and surely that means it has a MASSIVE % of the total US GDP. If Californians no longer pay federal taxes, other states will suffer greatly. Beneficial to Californians (such as me), but hurts others. And since others are not living in California.. and THEY form the majority in this republic... we Californians gotta keep paying taxes :-P As I always say, anytime you have a democracy, you're gonna get some form of socialism, whether or not you call it that or not. Whether it be in the form of national income taxes that spread wealth throughout the country (Social Security was directly lifted from the Socialist Party platform by FDR), regardless of the source's location, or immigration restrictions to make sure American employers are forced to hire natives.... socialism is a natural, and inevitable, outcome of any democratic nation. (Er, so long as you define socialist acts as "government regulation of the market", which is what alot of conservatives do define it as. Personally I would call it "state capitalism", capitalist but only to the point that the benefits are guaranteed to go to a certain group of people first. Afterall, the ideological socialism tends to mean a world without borders, and global taxation and voting systems and such.)
OK i'm done now.. COOL BAZOOKA!
