    ???? if enough Republican politicians and voters wanted it, or anything else, I see no reason why they could not have it given we have a democracy??

    as I said we do not have a democracy so we don't need a majority of the entire population to want it it's you who can't seem to understand that

    you lost debate so want to talk about size of majority needed!! How idiotic. The point is when there is enough of a majority in our democracy you can you anything you want. Now do you understand?
    Republicans cant convert system to capitalism and Democrats cant convert to single payer communism until one has enough of a majority. 1+1=2

    Fool liberal lost debate on subject and is trying to change subject but to another subject about which he is equally ignorant:



    To be sure, in addition to being a representative democracy, the United States is also a constitutional democracy, in which courts restrain in some measure the democratic will. And the United States is therefore also a constitutional republic. Indeed, the United States might be labeled a constitutional federal representative democracy. But where one word is used, with all the oversimplification that this necessary entails, “democracy” and “republic” both work. Indeed, since direct democracy — again, a government in which all or most laws are made by direct popular vote — would be impractical given the number and complexity of laws that pretty much any state or national government is expected to enact, it’s unsurprising that the qualifier “representative” would often be omitted. Practically speaking, representative democracy is the only democracy that’s around at any state or national level.

    No, they are most definitely not doing the same thing in NY as they did in KS. In NY, in order to get the tax break, the business must set up shop on or near NY State College campuses. In KS, it was just a dumb tax cut with no requirements attached. It's not the same at all, and saying it's the same means you are employing Russian Active Measures.

    And McConnell is a moron? Since when? He's the GOP Senate Majority leader and speaks for the party and the ideology. McConnell isn't an idiot, he's just an asshole.

    Revenue comes from taxes. You raise taxes, you raise revenues. You cut taxes, you cut revenues. Why? Because, math.

    But let's get back to the subject you dodged from; McConnell insisting the policies that failed in Kansas are the ones he wants nationwide. Given the poor results from Kansas, why would the same plan work nationally?

    A simple dumb tax cut is what Ireland did and most of the worlds major corporations moved there in whole or in part. It stands to reason that A simple liberal would not know thatwould not know thatA liberal would have us believe that if we raise taxes corporations will move to where the highest tax is.

    Why would it work nationally after we saw work nationally in Ireland. Only liberal would find the lesson too complicated because it interferes with his Marxist plan to steal from corporations at gunpoint

    So your position went from "Ireland creates jobs", to "Ireland keeps jobs that are already there". Where are these jobs "kept"? No idea because you don't seem to know what you're talking about. So you shifted the goalposts as more information came to light, meaning you're just talking out of your rear end.
