    Hi! My name is JFK_USA and I am a moderate democrat:

    Here is where I stand on issues:

    - For a Public Option want to go a single payer system for Healthcare
    - Pro-Choice
    - Gay Marriage should be decided by states but a church should have the right to allow or deny a gay couple in their church (Separation of church and state).
    - If you make more money, you should pay more in taxes
    - Assualt automatic weapons should be banned, and gun control is needed with stiffer crimes for people that have unregistered gun.
    - Executives should have a cap on their income if their company is asking for government help and if they have to cut jobs, they have to cut their pay.
    - If a company moves american jobs to a foreign country, a HUGE tax increase on that company.

    Anything else just ask.

    Yes but I don't like those people who say "fair tax" when they are pushing for a national sales taxes which means if I go and buy a $1000 computer and so does Warren buffet and the 25% sales tax makes the total $1,250, who can afford that? Warren Buffet.

    To say rich people consume much more than the middle class is stupid and I hate people who call it a "fair tax"

    That doesn't sound very moderate to me at all. In fact that sounds like the typical Lefty. Moderates only believe half of what they say. Sorta like "drinking in moderation.

    Welcome to the boards though!

    You're welcome here no matter where your political persuasion lies. I find that quite refreshing. However, you have some difficulty in your assessment of reality. Though I dislike having to cut a quote to pieces in order to reply sentence by sentence, I believe it is necessary in this case to facilitate your understanding of each point as I believe also that your comprehension skills regarding lessons that should have been learned by now are wanting.



    Study the countries that have tried this already.

    No comment. I am partially pro-choice, as in cases of rape, physical danger to the mother and where predictions of gross abnormalities are confirmed. There are too many couples wanting to adopt the children that will not be born as a result of the choice.

    So you'd have "marriages" that are legal in one state but not in the next? That's bullshit. Besides, there's no need to change the definition of the word. Give benefits to gay couples as if they were married.

    That is what we live with now.

    Gun control helps criminals.

    Companies should not be given government help. If they can't succeed without stealing money from the public, they should fail and allow others to take their market share. The government should not attempt to run ANY business designed to make a profit.

    How so? The government here does not control taxation in other countries.

    If I have any questions, I'll send you a note.

    Bullshit again. The dollar output from you required to buy a computer will be about the same as it is now. The currently embedded taxes in the cost of as computer will go away...along with all of the federal income taxes.

    Rich people do spend more than the middle class. We buy yachts, mansions, Gulfstreams, businesses, huge stock market portfolios and other things that stimulate the economy and provide jobs.

    I'm betting you have come down with a case of wealth envy.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    It is apparent that your need some lessons other than those being doled out by the collectivist, Marxist, Socialist, Communist, Worthless politicians that really seek nothing more than to be supported by taxpayer monies as they sit on their asses telling the rest of us what we have to do to avoid being fined.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder.
