Individuals like Kirsten Powers and Juan Williams are liberals I find myself disagreeing with a majority of the time. However, they're both stand up people that I feel I could actually have a constructive discussion with, unlike most liberals (politicians, pundits, OR private citizens).
This video would be hilarious if it wasn't so tragic.
Perhaps, but if you willingly invite someone into your home and then kill them, they call that murder.

How Real Can Romney Be?

With the $1 in tax hikes vs. $10 in spending cut question, Governor Romney unfortunately fell into the 'this or that' question trap. He is experienced enough a debater to know better than that. The question makes the assumption that a 1% tax hike on $100 would net you $1 more in revenue. The problem is that it works off of the assumption of static numbers. A rise in taxes does not necessarily represent a rise in revenue. And THAT'S the point he should've gotten across.
4) There is no practical way to balance the budget in the next decade without raising taxes and cutting defense, Social Security, and Medicare. It's complete irony that Mr. Hawkins goes on later in this article to espouse that most Americans do not understand economics. Because anyone that does, understands that we do NOT need to raise taxes, we need to raise REVENUE. These do NOT mean the same thing. As a matter of fact, the last three times taxes were lowered in any significant way, revenue went UP.

When I was much younger, I was told... If you're under 30, and not a liberal, you have no heart. If you're over 30, and not a conservative, you have no brain. Somebody in the room needs to be an adult. It's time to take away the checkbook/credit card from our children (liberals), and let the adults in the room set a budget and live within our means.
That's probably one of the most telling list of statistics I've seen yet. What was your source?
Average American: Why do we tax cigarettes so much? Liberal: To discourage people from smoking! Average American: Why do we tax businesses so much? Liberal: Uhhh... for fairness...
Actually, the constitutionality of whether the tax is constitutional based on the fact is was NOT initiated in the House was never explored. Specifically because the bill NEVER CALLED IT A TAX. However, now that the Supreme Court has weighed in and deemed the MANDATE constitutional based on the fact that IT IS A TAX, opens the door for a lawsuit to challenge the constitutionality of the TAX based on the bill being initiated in the Senate.
