What’s consistent about every election, is that democrats have policy ideas and republicans don’t

    In my state, the democrats running for governor have actual ideas. They come up with solutions to problems. You may not like these ideas, but they at least exist. They talk strategy.

    The republicans running, as usual, offer NOTHING new or no specific ideas at all. It’s just the same shit over and over about lower taxes, deregulation, and whining about DACA. At worst, instead of giving specific proposals, they just give flowery, generalized speeches about protecting the constitution and family values as if they actually give a shit about poor or middle class families. Their base is stupid enough to fall for it every time.

    At what point do republicans realize most deregulation policy does more harm than good and the EFFECTIVE tax rate on the 1% is already too low? Corporations are already wealthier than ever before. Saving them more does not accomplish jack shit besides running up deficits.

    I only interpret this as you being unable to explain how I am wrong.

    All Democrat "ideas" are the same- STEAL $$$ FROM THE SUCCESSFUL and "redistribute" that money to voting blocs that will reelect them. They pretend it's to "Help" the "poor" but it isn't- if it were, we'd have no more poor!! Instead we have more!

    Here is a simple lesson for your Billy - if you want more of something, subsidize it. If you want less, tax it.

    Lol this is so dumb. For one thing, Democrats actually propose raising the minimum wage. They don’t propose anything that has to work subsidizing the poor. What’s also stupid about your post, is that democrats are also SUCCESSFUL yet they propose that they pay more in taxes.

    You're obviously a kid with no real life experience. How old are you? 18? Seriously, there ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

    Indeed. See John 12:6. That's a good description of the concern that those on the left wrong have for the poor.

    Excellent!!
    So after you price unskilled, first time workers out of the job market, what do you do for an encore?
