Another golden opportunity for liberals to learn from history - but will they?

    I never quite understood why liberals refuse to look at other nations and history to avoid making the same mistakes. It seems they are learning impaired.

    Europe is in the middle of collapse from the same policies Obama has been trying to implement for 4 years. Now, they are trying the oldest mistake in the book - raise taxes and punish the successful. Well, here's is a glaring example of what happens when you think you can punish the wealthy.

    Actor Gerard Depardieu renounced his citizenship and is fleeing France for lower taxes in Belgium. France will have a 75% tax rate on millionaires beginning in January.

    Also one actor making a political statement, what do you say when American actors supports the dems? Also France is seeing an immigration boom. So what the fuck are you talking about?

    So you are privileged if I only hit you on the head with a hammer instead of cutting your head off with a chain saw?

    That's the kind of logic a 10-year-old uses on his parents.

    The guy is not here to talk, he's here to get his rocks off treating people like scum like the rest of the "libertarians".

    Right, it's an immigration boom of ticks and parasites. The millionaires are all leaving.

    I'm not a paranoid wuss like you that takes everything personally. Your "logic" sucks as always. Taxes are the price of living in a civilized country and you sit around spoiling all your joy bitching about something that is as inevitable as the sun coming up in the morning.

    Actually, Obama wants a LOT more than that. He just can't say that because of the political climate - and you're just too stupid to realize it. You're his goose-stepping little soldier dedicated to his cause.

    Furthermore, the number in question doesn't matter. The issue is, the more you blame the successful and try to punish them, the more they will take their ball and go home. And there ain't a fucking thing you little goose-stepping Nazi's can do about it (and it's clear how bad that pisses you off based on your emotional post). Which makes it all the more comical on this side of the aisle.

    LMAO!!! When did that happen?!?!? Europe hasn't been hit with the "conservative bug" in its entire miserable history.

    Isn't it funny when liberal policy fails, you idiots can't admit it and instead claim the failed liberal policy was somehow "conservative policy" :lol:
