Oh I thought the main goal of our government was to keep us safe. I would hope if I was in the middle of a war zone the good ole unkee sam would come and get me for free not ask for a credit card number. But I guess that's just one of my socialist ideas

and edit after this

they are citizen so they pay taxes as well

Yeah we pay taxes and when we need medical help, we still have to pay for it.

I understand how you feel, but it seems that you think it is odd. When it is more of how the world runs.

well then f taxes I said it. I'm kinda of sick of paying a gross amount of salaries that go to nothing but bloated asses that really don't give a flying fuck about the common man. No taxation with out representation, and I don't feel represented by rich middle aged business men who haven't had a struggle in their life.  OK rant over but seriously.

Our governments main goal is to provide it's people with protection from outside sources, like terrorist attacks(failed), create an army(succeed), and help it's citizens when needed. Medical expenses is one thing, because they actually have a program if you legitimately can't afford it. But when our citizens are in the middle of "world war three" as allot of news casters are saying, they fucking better be there free of charge not off policing the least dangerous threat on America.

They put the internet here so I can voice my opion on these things and othe people can hear and either agree or disagree.

LAWL. Dont give me that crap about katrina victims. Some of them are still fighting to live in trailers paid for by FEMA. I dont want to even get started about the people who spent the 2,000 dollars they were given on guns and fancy clothes.

Not talking about the ones living, I'm talking about the dead ones.

And that's what happens when you take the easy way out of a situation. I would never give a poor person 2k to do what he wants with it.

Also I was using that as a statement please stay on topic.

It sounds like something out of a monty python skit. 

Imagine they turn you away at the wharf for not having correct change LOL
or or the boat won't even stop for the darkest ppl
the boat should have a giant "GAS GRASS OR ASS" bumper sticker

this is people's freedoms were talking about here, shouldn't that be worth taxpayers money, and not the guise of freedom that the Iraq war was/is?
Canada just chartered a bunch of Cyprian boats, I wonder if we'll be charging too?

Just pray they'll be better and at least more on time than BC ferries.

You'd think that the Americans would help out their own citizens, charging them for evacuation from war zone is a pretty low thing to do, I mean it's not like you don't have the money for it .

The fact that it's safer doesn't make the action right.  That's like arguing that we should pay for police because we have a decision: pay the criminal or pay the cop.

On your first point. I don't know where you are going to live.

Second if you are an American citizen living in Lebanon, then you might have some money with you. I doubt it's much of a dent in there pocket books.

Based on principle it's wrong, but the fact it there isn't any harm done. I know if this was any other country charging money you wouldn't hear a thing. But we won't get into that.

You realize the citizens already pay for the protection in taxes. They're making them pay twice before rendering a service that is called for. And don't try to give examples of "You pay for medical service even though you pay taxes" because medical service is not a responsibility of the government, and so the taxes are not being given to your doctor, but they are being given to the military.

But that argument is foolish.  If other countries aren't charging, then it merely proves them to be better protectors of their citizens.  You are, basically, arguing that the criticism is unfair, because if other countries did the same they wouldn't recieve it, when other countries aren't

That's what I say, I'll worry about it if it turns out to be more than a rumor.
