    I think I've got a pretty good comparison for this, let me know what you think.

    For democrats, saying they want the rich taxed more is like what republicans do when they talk about how they'll outlaw abortions.



    As we see when democrats had power, they just continued the status quo tax system, just like when republicans continue the status quo abortion laws.



    It's all just a talking point, with zero substance yet their followers don't notice it. Seems quite miraculous to me.


    Don't hear me wrong, I don't want taxes raised on the rich. I want them decreased on everyone, just pointing out the lie that democrat politicians want taxes raised on the rich.

    I don't know that it's a lie. Bill Clinton actually did raise the income tax on the wealthy. Bush did sign a partial birth abortion bill.

    The Democrat politicians know better than to tax the rich... they use the rich as a scapegoat... they need to deflect and blame - because otherwise their sheep will realize what a total fucking clusterfuck their President has been.

    Not that the right are much better. But... call me naive... I do have a vague hope that Romney might - just - if we are very, very lucky - be able to stabilize the economy.

    The end result is that the rich start leaving. They leave, then they renounce their citizenship and pay no taxes at all.

    James Cameron is moving to New Zealand. What's interesting is that he says he is leaving because of the "unrest" to come.

    I'm talking about the current crop of dems, their actions did the opposite of their words.




    Partial birth abortion bill, i can't see how that had any impact on normal abortions.

    Dems aren't going to raise taxes on themselves and on people they get their bribes from.

    you are starting to become enlightened.

    the only difference between the 2 parties is rhetoric.

    an oligarchy runs this country.

    the flaw I see is that certain levels of taxation (I'm 100% against any income tax) are necessary for government function. So the gubmint does have some leverage in taxing the populace. Of course, our govt. is out of control on spending which is how we ended up 15 trillion and rising in the hole.

    Abortion, is not a government function what so ever and therefore is ONLY a talking point that will never make it into a legislation. It shouldn't even be a talking point at all federal govt. politics.

    tax increase do happen. Abortion legislation never will happen.

    Some democrats see that they are losing control of socialism.
