I can't tell if this is real.
What can't you tell "is real", Lester?
Well, this is a dot com site, which can be a whole bunch of B.S. put together.


I think that the whol "concern with the common folks" is what leads us down the garden path to bankruptcy.
The desire to help others is incredibly commendable, but when the whole benevolence industry is taken over by the gov't, what results are huge, bloated bureaucracies with enormous overhead that may do some good to some people, but wind up doing harm to others in the process - and they also shield people from the consequences of negative decisions, so that lessons are never learned and people go on and on and on making those negative, destructive decisions, until the government destroys the producing classes and then bankrupts itself trying to "help".

Providing food, medical care, housing, and clothing used to be a normal responsibility of adulthood. Socialism makes all those things the responsibility of the government to some degree.  When the responsibilities of adulthood are assumed by government, people are free to never grow up, and continue living their lives in a selfish and irresponsible manner.

here in the U.S., we hear all about "the one percent" from the Socialists, communists, idiots, and malcontents who make up the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Those are the villains who are allegedly stealing the wealth that belongs to all of us, or something like that.  Yet the top 1% of wage earners supply the government every year with about half or more of its total annual tax revenues.  The bottom 50% of wage earners pay virtually no income taxes at all, by the time you calculate the benefits they receive.  As someone who pays a hefty chunk of my annual income and receives no federal assistance of any sort, I think it's time we quit taxing the producers and start taxing the freeloaders - or at least, quit giving them money that we are having to borrow from China because our President and Congress don't understand the simple concept of ceasing to spend when there is no more money in the bank!!!!
ARE YOU SERIOUS?! No, really! If there's one thing that p**ses me off the most is extreme people in either Rep. or Dem. bashing each other when it's both of their faults, getting people to follow their ways, which is having a fault growing more wider. People who post s**t like this are a main cause for the fault ever growing wider, I would choose your words more wisely. Oh yeah, see the view from a different perspective from time to time, you'll be surprised that way, and not just be considered a single party minded jerk! Hatred

Look, when the Republicans had control of Congress, they SPENT TOO MUCH TOO.  I fully accept that.  But they ran a deficit of $165 billion the last time they wrote the federal budget (FY07).  Since the Dems took over Congress in both Houses back in Jan. 2007 the deficit has bloomed to $1.5 TRILLION.  Understand, that is JUSt the deficit - spending above and beyond what we take in every year.  All told, this administration has added $5 trillion to the national debt in just over 3 years, and Obama's budget proposals include trillion dollar annual deficits as far as they go into the future.  It doesn't take a genius to see that this is VERY bad for the country!  And yes, Republicans are resistant to tax increases.  However, if they rolled over and gave Obama EVERY SINGLE TAX INCREASE he has requested since he took office, the revenues would cover only ONE FIFTH of what he is proposing to spend!  And the tax increases would so brutally punish investment that even more jobs and companies would flee the country for good.  Not to mention that any time you raise taxes you put more money in the hands of the U.S. Congress, which, under EITHER party, has demonstrated that it has ZERO self-control when handed large amounts of tax money.

  The House has proposed multiple budget plans since the Republicans took control in Jan. 2011.  All of them have included effective ways to try and get the runaway spending and borrowing under control.  The Democrat controlled Senate has killed every single budget the House has put forward, and in return?  Not a single proposed budget from them.  Not since 2008.  Just one continuing resolution after another.  Continuing to spend, continuing to borrow, and continuing to mortgage our nation's future to China.

  Republicans aren't perfect.  I will be the first to admit that.  But on the issue of our runaway debt and spiraling deficits, the Democrats have yet to put forward anything that actually deals with the problem.  Their solution is always the same: tax more, spend more, strip away more liberties, and give more power to the government.  It is ALL they know how to do, and this administration has proved that in spades.

  So you think I'm a partisan jerk.  I won't call you a jerk.  I don't roll that way as a rule.  Show me something the Democrats get right, and I'll support it.  But right now, the choice is either to walk slowly towards bankruptcy and national ruin, or to do what this administration is doing - race towards it with the windows down and the accelerator floored, singing along to the radio as the United States shoots over the edge of the cliff.

  I believe this with all my heart - if Obama is re-elected he WILL bankrupt our country.  He has already made a good start!

I would just add 1 thing that gets left out of the 1 percent argument: our government is made up of people who are in the one percent or soon join it when they get to DC.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/washington-d-c-area-now-richest-nation-191806412.html

"Washington, D.C. area now the richest in the nation"

Hillary Clinton, John Beohner, Don Rumsfeld and all the contractors and lobbiests who work with and for them are multi millionaires.

people are occupying Wall Street but DC /our government is totally full of Wall Street people on both sides and in the wings. all over the place.

RC - the reason all politicians lie is that all people lie.  I might be lying right now, in fact! TeddyR

Lester - I know this and I'm really not that upset about it.  Hamilton once said "Those who own the country ought to run it."  One of the huge problems today is that so many people holding high office in our government have never written or cashed a private sector paycheck.  Bottom line, I trust neither big business nor big government.  But if I have to pick between the two, I will pick big business every time.  All they want is my money. Big government wants to control every aspect of my life!

Indiana- you can't seperate big business from big government. I argue from the other side when talking with liberals who see the government as the savior.

Big Busines DOES just want to make money but they do that in a way that empowers big government. THAT is the problem. I love business that's why i feel this way.

The idea that the big corporations want free markets is wrong. They turn to thwe state for protection from competition.

Obamas administration is full of guys from Wall Street. Geitner is from Goldman. Peter orzag, who was Obamas economic advisor till a little while ago, is at Citigroup.


http://www.lewrockwell.com/paul/paul665.html

"Socialism is a system where the government directly owns and manages businesses. Corporatism is a system where businesses are nominally in private hands, but are in fact controlled by the government. In a corporatist state, government officials often act in collusion with their favored business interests to design polices that give those interests a monopoly position, to the detriment of both competitors and consumers."

I wouldn't want the job.
For one-I couldn't handle the stress.
Or the other idiots.
Or the fact I'd get drunk and p**sed and push the red button.

This election, as it stands now, is gonna be between a sh*t sandwich and a giant douche.

I'd be more inclined to vote for neither of them.

No more Obama....enough said about that.

As for Romney,I just have this suspicion that he has dealt with money so long that it will be his main focus. If he could get our economy going again....I don't really believe the current administration's claim that it's improving...that would be nice. But I wonder how he will do it. By not discouraging more outsourcing or relaxing rules on hiring illegals or allowing more supposed American companies to manufacture outside the USA while putting more folks here out of work. I think the government and big business are intertwined way too much as it is and I don't think I can trust such a business oriented person to run things in everyone's best interest.
