    Democrats: Tax and spend

    Republicans: Borrow and spend

    We get the politicians we deserve.

    The democrat party is stumbling toward socialism on a massive scale

    But they will need total control of congress and the white house to make it happen

    And they are far from that

    That's when you'll lose the billionaires claiming to be for higher income taxes.

    If there was a gang of thieves robbing the houses in your neighborhood, and those thieves had police protection, would you fall for the dumbass idea that the way to solve that problem would be to tax the people in a richer neighborhood more?

    That's what the Democrats are suggesting.

    you are going to create the largest underground economy in human history. And it will also entail massive stealing of supplies before they get to the stores even. When people are outpriced, they find other ways. Especially if the product is defective in the first place.
