Considering that every Democrat in DC was complicit with Obama's "lie of the year," why would any sane person vote for any Democrat ever again until they change their stripes?

Problems With Income Inequality

I have literally seen Hutchinson's arguments thousands of times. It requires an entire philosophical and psychological system to analyze the errors his position contains. For starters, his position on income equality is a primitive idea that the whole tribe should share today's kill equally. But even in primitive societies, the expert hunter often received an extra share plus tribal honors. The argument that since we were born with greater talents and opportunities, we have no right to them. Well, Mr. H., the same goes for life itself. I didn't do anything to have life. Are we to deny a claim to a right to it? If I was born with it and had nothing to do with having life, talent, and other advantages, what gives anyone else the right to them? NOTHING. What H's ideas inevitably lead to is force; the slavery of the able to serve the less able. It is questionable whether equal income is even desirable. But even if it is, any method to get there other than individual freedom, is tyranny by those "visionaries" who deem themselves more equal than the rest to make those decisions for everybody else.

Positive freedoms are attempts at freedom from the laws of nature and reality will win out in the end. In the meantime, the slaves to it are on both sides. Those enslaved by having to provide and those enslaved by the dependency it creates. The only "winners" are those who grant themselves elite status contrary to what they deserve.

The Passing of Progressivism

I tend to agree with the other comments so far. What socialists/communists/progressives always seem to claim is that their ideas are great. They just weren't carried out right. The constant appeal to the lower instincts of people; envy, hate, etc. will be used again and again. An educated populace might resist it, but we don't have one and as more and more depend on handouts, I fear only a total collapse and perhaps generations of dark ages will bring about a substantive change. In the meantime, the encroachment of Islam and Sharia law will accelerate to bring an end to civilization for a long time. We must start NOW rejecting the altruist "morality" that somehow those who produce owe a livelihood to those who don't. We must solve out debt problem and that can happen only with freeing the market, production, and getting rid of most government programs and spending, selling off government properties and making them productive rather than a drain on the taxpayers. But first and foremost, we have to educate people to the cannibalism of the social welfare state.
If it wasn't for the racial support, he'd be in the low 30s. That too seems to be slipping, especially among the young. Recent polls show that his support among blacks has slipped from the 90s to the 70s, still a big cushion for the over all numbers.

The same thing holds true for the corporate income tax. The consumer ends up paying it by way of higher prices.

Does anyone consider that the low approval for Republicans is, in part, due to the fact that they cave in to the Democrats so often?

The Abominable Care Act is an obscenity from the start. It is immoral for the government to intrude on medical care and all federal regulation of medicine needs to be trashed. The main reason for the rise in health care costs are due to federal intrusion.
