you might argue that 2x infinity

This is your difficulty here. Infinity is NOT a number. 2xInfinity is meaningless.

You can only do arithmetic with numbers, not with infinity, which is a concept, not a number.

What you're suggesting makes as much sense as stating that "2xDoorhinge = 42". It is meaningless. A Doorhinge is not a number to be multiplied. Neither is infinity. Infinity is an idea.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Well come on diploid, that was the exact case I was trying to demonstrate.

In infinitesimal calculation it is important which part of an equation has the 'stronger' infinities. It distinguishes infinities, so one can draw a limit, for derivations for example.
There are 'differen' infinities in math.

Im not sure what you mean by this. The set of all Real numbers contains both irrational and rational numbers. It excludes complex numbers if thats what you mean though

Infinity is a concept, not a number. You can only divide numbers.

“Strengthened by contemplation and study,
I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”
