Business now sides with President Obama. They realize that the path the President is taking is not only good for the country but it is good for business as well. Just like the military strongly supporting their Commander-in-Chief during the campaign, the business community came around and gave money to Obama as they rebuked the GOP.

Why Liberals Are More Intelligent Than Conservatives
Liberals think they’re more intelligent than conservatives because they are

It is difficult to define a whole school of political ideology precisely, but one may reasonably define liberalism (as opposed to conservatism) in the contemporary United States as the genuine concern for the welfare of genetically unrelated others and the willingness to contribute larger proportions of private resources for the welfare of such others. In the modern political and economic context, this willingness usually translates into paying higher proportions of individual incomes in taxes toward the government and its social welfare programs. Liberals usually support such social welfare programs and higher taxes to finance them, and conservatives usually oppose them.

Defined as such, liberalism is evolutionarily novel. Humans (like other species) are evolutionarily designed to be altruistic toward their genetic kin, their friends and allies, and members of their deme (a group of intermarrying individuals) or ethnic group. They are not designed to be altruistic toward an indefinite number of complete strangers whom they are not likely ever to meet or interact with. This is largely because our ancestors lived in a small band of 50-150 genetically related individuals, and large cities and nations with thousands and millions of people are themselves evolutionarily novel.

The examination of the 10-volume compendium The Encyclopedia of World Cultures, which describes all human cultures known to anthropology (more than 1,500) in great detail, as well as extensive primary ethnographies of traditional societies, reveals that liberalism as defined above is absent in these traditional cultures. While sharing of resources, especially food, is quite common and often mandatory among hunter-gatherer tribes, and while trade with neighboring tribes often takes place, there is no evidence that people in contemporary hunter-gatherer bands freely share resources with members of other tribes.

Because all members of a hunter-gatherer tribe are genetic kin or at the very least friends and allies for life, sharing resources among them does not qualify as an expression of liberalism as defined above. Given its absence in the contemporary hunter-gatherer tribes, which are often used as modern-day analogs of our ancestral life, it may be reasonable to infer that sharing of resources with total strangers that one has never met or is not likely ever to meet – that is, liberalism – was not part of our ancestral life. Liberalism may therefore be evolutionarily novel, and the Hypothesis would predict that more intelligent individuals are more likely than less intelligent individuals to espouse liberalism as a value.

Analyses of large representative samples, from both the United States and the United Kingdom, confirm this prediction. In both countries, more intelligent children are more likely to grow up to be liberals than less intelligent children. For example, among the American sample, those who identify themselves as “very liberal” in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 106.4, whereas those who identify themselves as “very conservative” in early adulthood have a mean childhood IQ of 94.8.

Hey, dear friend, if President Obama has so little "business experience" (according to you and your ilk) you should applaud him for meeting with business leaders to hear what they have to say.

Obama is simply a fool that thinks/believes that working educated Americans cannot do the math. A tax on these so called wealthy Americans will last for about eight days in running the govt. His ploy is an exercise in having the middle class accustomed to his increasing EVERBODY'S TAXES. His arrogance and schemes are so obvious that even the ones that voted for him are beginning to see his intentions.

Didn't you guys say this before the election when Mitt (47 percenter) ROmney was gaining all that fake momentum!?

Yes, dear friend, the electorate spoke in the last election and roundly threw the republicants to the curb - over and above the the "arrogance" and "schemes" the republicants tried to win votes.

Time has come, for the GOP to decide, whether they want to be a party of the American people....or, continue to play party partisan politics and serve wealthy corporate interests.....

Dear heart, can you conceive of the time when Obama succeeds in his grandiose schemes of fairness and economic equality for all ? That is the day when no one is required to work since everything will be provided by the govt. from cradle to grave. When the hardworking masses realize that the "others" have everything that they themselves are working to achieve. That's the day when they decide "That's the life for us also, so they join the "others" in reaping the spoils of what will soon be a non-existent working class. They now move to Oakland and San Francisco and really enjoy the good life with their fellow non workers.

Human nature is a "bitch" and no amount of legislation can or will ever be able to destroy that aspect of being a human.

Hey Tony, just exactly how long do you think it will take Obama to spend any additional taxes imposed upon those earning above $250,000.?
