    Any fool can tell the truth, but it requires a man of some sense to know how to lie well.

    RUSH: What are they so afraid of, why do they have to wipe out Reaganism? Top marginal tax rate in 1981, Reagan takes office, 70%. Total take to the Treasury then, $500 billion. Reagan leaves office in 1989. Top marginal tax rate, 28%, dropped from 70. Total take to the Treasury, almost a trillion dollars. Cutting tax rates from 70%, that was a top marginal rate at the time, down to 28% doubled revenues. We know how to increase revenue. That's not their objective with taxation. The regime doesn't care about raising revenue with taxation. No, no, no.

    EDTHECYNIC: As the extremist right wing Heritage Foundation chart shows, revenue declines as a result of Reagan's tax cuts leading to the Reagan Recession of 1982 1983. Reagan followed his one tax cut with 8 tax increases in 6 years and revenue grows substantially!!!

    If you notice, the professional CON$ervative liars always leave out Reagan's 8 tax increases as well as the decline in revenue AFTER Reagan's tax cut and BEFORE Reagan's 8 tax increases. And what is carefully left out shows premeditation and the intent to deceive.

    This is one of the most professionally crafted lies in history. It is a perfect example of the CON$ervative technique of lying to your level of ignorance.

    The best liar is he who makes the smallest amount of lying go the longest way.

    I personally don't give a flying fuck if government revenues go up or down.

    I want to keep more of my own money so i can secure my and my family's financial future. The best way to do that is to surgically remove government from our lives as much as possible.

    Actually, the original source of that professionally crafted lie is the extremist Heritage Foundation think tank. Stuttering LimpTard is merely parroting his GOP script. You could go to any CON$ervoFascist source and find the exact same lie repeated ad nauseam.

    The bigger picture is that Reagan preached this same removal of Government from our lives, and gassed up his peoples, yet he grew the Government and also raised taxes. Facts are a bitch. All politicians are scummy.

    Haven't I been saying this all along?

    We are on the insanity plan:

    We do the same thing over and over (electing Dimocrats and Repudlicans) and yet we expect a result other than bigger, more expensive more intrusive government.

    Insane.

    I was totally expecting this to be an expose on how the Bush tax cuts actually helped out the poor, as a percentage of income, the most.

    Poor Ed, your smart but way to wound up about certain things and it clouds your judgement and logic.
