    "If we would just convert these investments that we're making through out government in education, research and healthcare. If we just turn those into tax cuts, especially for the wealthy, then somehow the economy is going to grow stronger. That's the theory," President Obama said about the right at a campaign event on the tax code in Boca Raton, Florida today.

    "Here is the news. We tried this for eight years before I took office. We tried it. It is not like we did not try it. '



    Anybody else tired of this Marxist asshole?

    That has nothing to do with Free Markets.

    Bureaucrats, social engineers, regulatory interventionists, and statist central planners can improve all things......

    All they have to do is tax, spend and redistribute wealth "fairly" and social justice and equality of outcomes can be achieved !!!

    Yes. And he obviously is in denial about what it takes to create a prosperous society, or is he just being deliberate, hoping to appeal to the ignorant and unimformed and entitlement minded?

    "The results of the Reagan era? From December 1982 to June 1990, Reaganomics created over 21 million jobs—more jobs than have been added since. Union membership and man-hours lost due to strikes tumbled. The stock market went through the roof.

    From July 1982 through August 2000, the S&P 500 stock price index grew at an average annual real rate of over 12%. The unfunded liabilities of the Social Security system declined as a share of GDP, and the "misery index" fell to under 10%.

    Even Reagan's first Democratic successor, Bill Clinton, followed in his footsteps. The negotiations for what would become the North American Free Trade Agreement began in Reagan's second term, but it was President Clinton who pushed the agreement through Congress in 1993 over the objections of the unions and many in his own party.

    Make no mistake..........this guy was a statist well before anybody ever heard of George Bush.

    While all of us read Plato, Hobbes, Moore, Rousseau, Hegel and Marx and were momentarily romanticized by it, most of us also ended up reading Smith, Mill, Sowell, Winniski, Laffer et. al., and realized the utopian guys were k00ks. Hey.......at 19 or 20, I was part of the k00k legion as well, strutting across campus with my New York Times under my right arm, developing into the next elitist asshole. Then I read, "The Way the World Works" by Jude Wanniski. Slam dunk reversal s0ns!!!

    Some, like Obama, continue to embrace it to this day FTG.:gay: His shit is about to be mothballed for two generations, thank God.:D
