    Eh? You keep talking about death. So if your not going to kill yourself – do you think the state will kill you instead? Death over a bloody tax? Your death has nothing to do with democracy. Nor would it make the slightest difference. Democracy is giving the people the power to vote for the party they want in government. We get that every four years. If people are unhappy, they will throw them out and elect someone who will give you the magical world with no taxes and no debt. Free for all.

    As I said, this tax is for improving and fixing our water supply. We are not the only country that has such a tax, even our neighbours have it. Even some people in Ireland have it, both residential and business. They seem to be surviving okay. It is not a tax to deal with the debt left by Fianna Fail, which one way or another, needs to be addressed and a very clear majority was put into government to do just that. It is very much in our country’s benefit to get it sorted.
