Rand Paul: Government Should Get Out of the Marriage Business Altogether submitted by mnocket to news

Spleen 4 points 39 points (+43|-4) ago

This is the only legitimate argument against "gay marriage" aka plain old marriage - the argument that marriage should not exist as a government recognized and regulated entity at all. Let the bigoted churches do what they want and only marry men to women, but come tax day everyone is on their own.

While we're at it, let's get rid of tax benefits for having children.

What do you think is the end game for our billionaire overlords? submitted by MamaFrankie to AskVoat

I don't think it's much of a secret.

The plan is fuck you, that's what.

(Poll) Hey Voat, when visiting an unknown site, will you sign up with your social media accounts? submitted by bassky to AskVoat

Spleen 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago

Even when visiting a known site, I never sign up using a social media account. I have yet to come across a site that I wanted to sign up for badly enough to create a face social media account in order to do so.

Rand Paul: Government Should Get Out of the Marriage Business Altogether submitted by mnocket to news

The US's tax system is very progressive - poor people generally don't even pay federal income taxes, so tax breaks don't apply to them. See here. I know that's a shitty, biased source - but it's WSJ data, and the WSJ article is behind a paywall.

A more accurate way to say what I feel is that we should get rid of blanket tax benefits for having children and instead direct those funds towards effective sex education (less babies) and targeted help for poor people with kids they can't support. How you define "poor" is the key - is a family with two earners making $50,000/yr each poor? What if they have six kids? I would sure as hell feel poor...

I wouldn't call it a guilty pleasure, but I can only listen to Frank Zappa when I'm alone. Too many people think he's weird as hell....and to be honest, his music is very out there. I love it though.
