  1. \ There is no equivalence between the political parties. I would choose the most corrupt Democrat over a soulless vampire like Romney
  2. Social Security has worked fine for 70 years, and is working fine today. The poverty experienced by older people up until the 1930's has been alleviated quite successfully. SS will work fine tomorrow because it will continue to evolve. Republicans' complaint is SS will go broke in 50 years, it won't of course because Congress will deal with it, as they have in the past. The only reason Republicans hate Social Security is because it is another Democratic program that they can't take credit for.
  3. I'm not saying Democrats are perfect, but at least they work for America. Republicans only work for re-election and those who give them money.
  4. The South is also capable of giving America the very best....I give you Bill Clinton and Martin Luther King
  5. Social Security will be seen historically as one of the greatest programs in the civilized world. Republicans just can't get past the fact that Democrats thought of it first.
  6. I tip my hat to your expertise, you obviously had an easier time in Math than I did. Suffice to say, a small increase in what the rich pay would make a big difference to 99% of the population.
  7. I was born in the South. Southerners pride themselves on respecting honesty and integrity, saying what you mean and standing by your word. Inexplicably, these same people vote Republican and make excuses for a generation of Republican lies. I think if Southerners look deep inside themselves, they will discover they have more in common with Democrats than Republicans.
  8. And they are leaving as well. There are no honorable Republicans left, and not one who will work with Democrats to exercise their Constitutional responsibility to govern. The solution is clear....vote them all out in November and let a Democratic majority rebuild America until a new and reasonable opposition emerges.
  9. It's simple math. If 1% of the population pays 3% more in taxes, the entire 99% of the rest of the population would each pay 2% less. This is because at the moment the 1% account for 40% of tax revenue and the 99% for the remaining 60%. So a modest 3% increase for 3 million wealthy Americans (who would barely notice it) would mean a significant 2% decrease in the tax owed by the other 300 million Americans, amounting to hundreds of dollars apiece. So an increase in the top tax rate would help YOU personally.
  10. You sure you can handle the truth? Barrack Obama spoke to the Muslim world from Cairo in 2009, and his words sparked the Arab Spring. This is what happens when powerful leaders speak the truth: America does not presume to know what is best for everyone, just as we would not presume to pick the outcome of a peaceful election. But I do have an unyielding belief that all people yearn for certain things: the ability to speak your mind and have a say in how you are governed; confidence in the rule of law and the equal administration of justice; government that is transparent and doesn't steal from the people; the freedom to live as you choose. Those are not just American ideas, they are human rights, and that is why we will support them everywhere. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/04/obama-speech-in-cairo-vid_n_211215.html
  11. The out of control spending began when Republicans committed to two wars without funding them, total cost now over a trillion dollars. This is madness, yet you insist on cutting social services to pay for it. Ain't gonna happen.
  12. I totally agree with the OP. Conservative Republicans are not fighting to improve America, they are only fighting for political survival. Their "solutions" all involve "tough choices" that take government services from those that need them most, be they children, women, the poor, college students, minorities and union members. They have no qualms about lying to further their goals, to the point of presenting a blatantly biased propaganda tool as a network news operation. The Republican party is currently a greater threat to America than AlQaeda or the Taliban. It must be crushed so America can once again resume its position as the greatest nation in the world.
  13. Democrats have repeatedly and historically demonstrated the will and ability to compromise. When the current temporary mob of Republicans will not budge in their ideology, compromise is impossible. Compromise does not mean abandoning your principals just to get along with the other side, it means bending toward a middle road....Republicans refuse to do that.
