Re: Solar power Fraud

Just a note that this in no way makes any case against solar power, in general, as I'm sure you know.

Re: Taxation = Theft?

Even the most conservative or Libertarian person still enjoys the benefits from taxes, including police protection, military protection, roads, schools, fire protection, etc., so arguably not paying taxes is the real theft.

I'm not a Bernie supporter, but I'd say he's the only one who performed well last night. When I watch the others and their mistakes, gaffes, etc; I think "this is what the Dems have to offer?" -- then Trump must be happy.
