    They only promise freedom while liberals get to buy votes with promises of free stuff.

    Perhaps the best solution is to prohibit people from voting on the grounds that it is a conflict of interest to be voting if a certain percentage of their income is dervived from liberal government.

    I forget who it was, but one of our founding fathers said when the people find out they can vote themselves money, we're done.

    doesn't happen though as taxes are higher than ever as a percent of GDP. We have most progressive tax in world. Top 1% pay 40% of federal taxes. No country rips off the rich like we do.

    Besides even if there were tax cuts for the rich( and there aren't) they would be trivial compared to to the trillions and trillions in welfare bailouts that liberals buy votes with as rountine part of their corruption .
