    No, Rott, I'm sorry to say but your assessment of economics shows very little actual understanding of it. iTunes U has some very helpful economics lectures that would benefit you greatly. It's college level lectures that we can access for free. I strongly urge you to give a few a listen. They would vastly improve your understanding of economic principle.

    Please take this post in the nature it was intended, not as an attack, but in the interests of advice and assistance.

    No. Taxes and regulation are not the issue. The issue is globalization. We could remove EVERY regulation and EVERY tax and in the end, they'll still outsource because it's cheaper to pay a guy in Thailand 10 cents an hour than a guy in Chicago $20 dollars an hour.

    Check out the Gallo wine bill in which taxpayers paid $millions to advertise wine overseas. I think I'd rather go with socialism than fascism, which is what we have now.

    I simply don't believe your corporate tax rate. Many corporations are not paying any taxes and I really don't think your source took into account corporate welfare.

    Yes. And there are seriously dozens of reports on just how little corporations actually pay in taxes in this country. Exxon Mobil is one of the chief offenders. We also spend WAY more on Corporate Welfare then we do on Welfare for actual people.

    Corporate Welfare vs. Social Welfare Statistics

    Sorry, but listening to pro-communist radical left-wing libreal "professors" talk about economics when they've never created a job in their whole damn miserable marxist lives is not going to give me any insight into economics.

    Bill Ayers was an admitted terrorist who set off bombs and is now a college "professor". Enough said...

    “During this time in [President] Reagan’s first term, our economy was growing at six percent … unemployment was dropping like a rock from double-digits under Carter. We were creating 600,000 jobs a month,” he said.

    “And when Reagan was done, we had created over 20 million news job; economic growth for 25 years like the nation had not seen in a century. So, yeah,” Limbaugh continued, “that’s what Obama says we can’t go back to

    Maybe you could, at least, try to point out what is wrong.

    Just saying it so, does not make it so.
