19. "If the middle class are unwilling to pay adequate taxes to support services" Well, that's what will happen, isn't it? If the middle class is unwilling to pay taxes for services, then they will elect officials who will cut their taxes. There's no should or shouldn't. It's built into the system. 20. Because it's illegal. Also, a false assumption. For example, nearly all hotel maids are female. Holiday Inn can't "corner the market" over Hilton because both draw from the same work force. What keeps one from undercutting the market for more profit? Minimum wage.

17. There's a consensus among scientists that climate change is caused or exacerbated by human beings. The dissenters are outliers. (Yes they exist.) Your question, "how can we say with any confidence"? You either have confidence in science, or in your ideology and economic agenda. If the latter, you can't. 18.One has nothing to do with the other, but no. And advocates for states rights need to recognize, that all but two red states are "debtor" states to the federal government. They take more than they give. All but three blue states are surplus states -- they contribute, dollar for dollar, more than they put in. It doesn't change the answer, but you should be aware of it. (Cont.)

12. God's definition, speaking Biblically, includes polygamy and incest. (Look it up, I'll wait.) The STATE defines marriage, and what keeps polygamy, incest, or whatever other permutation from being recognized by the state is public dissent. (As conservatives are dissenting, now, against Gay marriage.) 13.Yes 14. This should be reformed. 15. I don't believe a fetus is a child, or abortion murder. 16. A rise in minimum wage does not result in unemployment. Your market dynamics apply. (Continued)

Yes, that's exactly it. The website refreshing while i was typing was completely ideological. My response continues below.

9.(Continued) Conservatives believe in less Government, Liberals believe government should do more to help the poor. It's the politics that appears to "not care for the poor," not the individuals. 10.Never 11.There's no indication that either side will comply with a neutral revenue plan. To freeze spending, even in a period of low inflation,like now, would disastrous for the nation, long term. You can't pretend your way into a reality. eg.We know medical expenses go up every year. Government, under Medicaid and Medicare, accounts for half of all medical spending (and that's before Obamacare). You can't suddenly stop paying medical bills. Medicare recipients earned their benefits. Price freezes are a conservative non-starter, no? (cont.)

Liberal here. Here are your answers. Many of your questions are false-equivalencies, but I'll do my best. 1.No one has said in means nothing. 2.No 3.I don't say that. 4. In my case, 50% evidently. 5.Sometimes tax cuts stimulate growth, other times, not. 6.Pro-choice. Lightbulb: don't care Assault weapon:don't care Social Security: No 7.No (That's a profoundly stupid question, by the way.) 8.Because in times of contraction, with low interest, spending stimulates employment. Employment stimulates growth. If you have a mortgage, and you get fired, you still have a mortgage. You may have to spend money finding a job, despite your mortgage. 9. Republican politics do not reflect a concern for the poor. (Continued Next comment box)
Why is the department of Justice keeping track of fires?
He said he's going to raise taxes on upper income people. He is. He's not being sneaky about it. He said he was going to reform health care. He did. He said he was going to get us out of Iraq. He did. He got elected because he does what he says he will, not because he has a secret agenda. You guys are too used to your candidates winking to you, thinking that they aren't going to do what they say. I read articles by conservatives saying that about Romney (He won't really repeal Obamacare, Frum wrote."He says that for the base."). But Obama doesn't need to fool anyone. He's the President. An International arms treaty and the 2nd Amendment are two different things. Be freaked if you want, but you're being silly to stress over this.
He did not say that. Simply, did not. States and Cities tax items they can tax and they use taxes to modify behavior, plastic bags, liquor, cigarettes. I live in the bluest city of the bluest state in the union and last month I bought three handguns (2 used), completely legally, from a dealer, and I didn't have to deal with any regulation that I didn't have to thirty years ago. Oh, they had to give me locks with them, but other than that, the same background form I had to fill out thirty years ago. Yes, it's easier to buy guns in some states than it is in others, but that's not Federal Law. The guy won the election.He's not secret about what he'll do, but your information is wrong.
--"Barack Obama is no doubt the most anti-gun president in the history of the United States and his pandering to the corrupt UN should be alarming to anyone who wants to keep their Second Amendment freedoms." -- You don't have ANY evidence for this claim. None. Stop making stuff up. Reinforcing this misinformation bubble is going to keep Republicans losing elections for years. The treaty is an international treaty. Our 2nd Amendment right does not apply outside the US, never has.if Russians agree not to trade arms to Ugandans it's a good thing? This has nothing to do with our 2nd Amendment.
