Ryan, my point about your affinity for threat and intimidation is NOT a straw man, it is a logical conclusion to your own statements. You believe that government's role is to dictate how people manage their affairs. However, the only way to enforce this is to use the threat of fines or jail. Therefore, you condone the use of force in order to achieve your goals.

You have strong opinions about what types of buildings are needed in Hamilton, and also what types of homes people should live in. I am of the opinion that people should be free to choose where they live, as long as they can pay their way. I believe that individuals are unique, and so are their likes and dislikes. You believe that your way is the best way, and that if people don't follow your way of thinking, government should force them to.

As far as government health care goes, if you believe in sharing your income to help others, nobody is stopping you. If there are enough people that are like minded, then there will be plenty of money to help everyone. The fact that you believe taxes are required to fund health care, means that you don't believe people are genuinely good. You are trying to enforce morality, but you are using theft in order to do it. In this case, two wrongs do not make a right.
