    I don't see why I should forcibly pay tax for someone else's education.

    The school system doesn't even work!! It certainly cannot educate people properly.
    Other people use the public services even if you don't (which I seriously doubt). Taxes need to be paid for that. You are free to leave the country if you hate it so much. The state system isn't the best, but to say it can't educate people is total and utter rot.

    Are you that dumb? Wait...you have 6 red gems. So forget that.

    If they aren't rich, they can't afford private health and education. Hence the state provides that, so that the society as a whole improves. If we are full of poor, ill and ignorant people, the country is hardly going to prosper.

    I was educated in the state sector, and have benefitted greatly from the NHS. Without them I would be dead, uneducated or both. So I'm being greatful.

    Not quite sure I follow all this. How would you pay for the police, armed forces, roads, courts etc? Sales tax?

    What do you mean by saying you would privatize everything bar these things and the money supply?
    Read up on economics, doofus.

    I didn't bite you, and neither do I feel the need to resort to personal insults, which obviously you do. Insecurity about your points I suppose.. :rolleyes:
