Right wind politics is sick. It is the politics of authoritarianism and suppression of the voice of the little people. It is the politics of those who would completely disenfranchise the poor by eliminating welfare - just in case some one might be cheating and getting something they are not entitled to. It is the politics of those who would eliminate taxes for the wealthy, and remove all workers protection and rights from work places. It is the politics of bigotry and hatred of minority groups. One thing it certainly is not is the politics of Jesus. Jesus was for caring for the poor and the disenfranchised. Any 'Christians' who do not know that have not studied the Gospels.

Where is your evidence? You wouldn't make an accusation like this without evidence would you? And I mean evidence from a reputable source.

What transgressions are those then? Also, left wing? There is no left wing in America any more. There is a center right party and an extreme right party.

Oh yes - is that 'legitimate rape' by any chance? No wonder Republicans got routed after making obscene remarks about rape victims. The party of God indeed!

"He who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and he who gives gifts to the rich--both come to poverty." -Proverbs 22:16 "Jesus answered, 'If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.'" -Matthew 19:21 "He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who closes his eyes to them receives many curses." -Proverbs 28:27

Mark 10:21-22 Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, "You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me." When he heard this, he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions.

Oh yes? And what is that 59% of all income taxes as a percentage of the income 'earned' by the wealthy? 10% perhaps? It's certainly a significantly lower rate than you pay. So in other words we have people who are the least able to bear high rates of income tax paying higher rates than those who are most able to pay. As I mentioned in an earlier comment, taxes on the wealthy are now significantly lower then they were when Reagan was President. As for the 1800's, if you think it would have been nice to live under the conditions of those times you are having yourself on.

So where are your references to 'every study' of which you write? Taxes on the rich were far higher in the Reagan years than they are now. Do you object to Reagan's tax policies? In taxes on the wealthy fact they were far higher under every administration than they are now. They are at record lows right now in this instant of time.

I really don't think you know what a socialist is. It certainly is not Obama.
