Why is it so hard for libtards to understand that increased taxes will not work. It has never worked. Look across America and see the devastation it has caused. Unemployment, empty storefronts, foreclosed, boarded up houses, homelessness, poverty, hopelessness. All this can be traced back to it's roots. Confiscatory tax rates, unattainable and contradictory regulations to open and run a business, uncertanty and ever changing rules and costs, including the big one, health care. Taxing the rich is a joke, and they know it. It's much more than that, it's about leveling the playing field, but while everyboby works just to be on the field, the government is up in the booth calling the plays. The only way out of this mess is to: con't

Why is it so hard for pseudo conservatives to understand that both Dems and Repubs are equally responsible for the huge government waste, crony capitalism and tax increases that we have had ever since the end of World War II. When are conservatives going to stop drinking the Repub kool-aid?

We have to work within the Repub party to force it back to conservative principles. That's not being pseudo--that's being pragmatic.

Drastically reduce government and start the engine of the American economy. Which is one and the same.

While I disagree with statists, I sometimes admire their discipline. They are very good at staying “on message.”

I am 100 percent confident, for instance, that they intend big tax hikes on the middle class, even though they would piously swear an oath to the contrary. Indeed, I suspect more than 90 percent of them secretly would like a value-added tax.

It’s not that they necessarily dislike ordinary people, but privately they understand that you can’t finance big government by taxing rich people.

Simply stated, there aren’t enough of the “1 percent.” Moreover, rich people have...
