<quoted text>I never said ALL democrats are communist, just the ones who preach "fair share" & "redistribution of wealth".
I pointed out several post ago that yes, the democrats ARE a socialist party, NOT the whole society. Most Republicans still believe in individualism.
How does your vote determine how much is enough for someone else? Again, your party believes it knows whats best for others better than they do!
Yes, the rich,(the job creators), are hoarding their money until after Romney wins the election because they have NO faith in Obama. A recent poll of 1500 job creators had 100% of them admitting to hoarding money until after the election. The number one reason was because Obama has shown time and time again, he has no clue when it comes to the economy. Yes, the democrats will try to take credit, saying it's Obama's policies that helped Romney create jobs but the fact is neither create jobs, the rich do! Are they greedy, no, they just want a return on their investment..... which they won't get with Obama. All they'll get is higher taxes!
Pretty sad excuse for why tax cuts are not creating jobs. I am sure you will have another excuse if Romney wins. Point is, tax cuts do not automatically create jobs. I proved it and you admitted to it.

Here is a post my friend made on facebook today. I thought it was pretty good. I am sure you will call him a communist.

Claiming that low rates of corporate taxation improves the employment environment is idiotic. Corporations do not say, "oh, our taxes have reached an optimal level and now lets start hiring people." The entire corporate model, the entire capitalist model, is predicated on reducing production costs to the point of complete elimination, maximize profits, minimize expenditures, and production cost savings come first and foremost from labor inputs. Give corporations low taxes, they'll agitate for lower, give them zero tax rates, and they'll agitate for subsidies. Subsidize corporations and they'll cut wages and benefits and costs and advocate for regulatory repeal and externalize every penny of production cost and consequence possible.

You just showed a perfect example of why theist refuse to think for themselves on morality and other things. "His job?" No, it is your job to think, that is why you have a brain, use it.
"Devils work?" There is no such thing as a devil. But I know what you are trying to say. But fact is, your claim has no basis in truth.
Now if one believes in a god and is not thinking of what morality really is and is amoral, then yes, he will likely do bad.
But an atheist is not living in the mindset that a god makes rules. An atheist gets his moral understandings from other places. So your concept fails here.

I get mine from various places. I think most come from innate instincts. I learn to understand my instincts through studying evolutionary psychology to refine the feelings to modern day situations.

I study history. I learn the effects of actions and can deduce what is good and bad due to the effects of actions.

I study philosophy. Philosophers make a lifelong practice of doing thought experiments.
When you say it is gods job to do this thinking, I say philosophers try to take on this job. Now that does not mean I will accept all they say without question, like you do with god. A philosopher will spell out his reasoning so I can make my own decisions on the concept. God does not. And your statement shows why. You just blindly accept it as perfect.
Sorry, but that sounds extremely negligent.

Hey Silver, one of my dumba$$ liberal friends offered me 3 to 1 odds on the election with no limit! Should I take it easy on him, since he is a friend, and just go $500 to his $1500 or should I teach him a lesson on not to make such stupid bets and go my $5k to his $15k?

I look at the propaganda of religion just as I look at political propaganda.
If a politician said,' trust me, I work in mysterious ways', I would call bullshit. I am sure you would also. But theists have double standards for god. That is a huge failure of philosophy.

Look back at the reasons given yesterday theists gave for why god did not save the girl and other things on god. Now imagine a politician giving those excuses for his non action. It is pure propaganda.
Karl Rove only wished people bought such excuses for a politician.

I think religion was created by man. Who were these men? Politicians. Back in biblical times, men used god to demand authority. Moses was a perfect example of this.

<quoted text> Wasn't it the democrats that had complete control when Obama took over healthcare with Obamacare? The private sector can't compete with the govt when the govt owns the field, the refs, and makes up the rules of the game!
Obama care is but one thing. And it is not even really controlling the healthcare market, it is just demanding people get health insurance.

But even if it is socialist, it is but one market. You make it sound as if Obama wants all markets controlled by the government. It does not, and you cannot show he does. Thus your claims of communism is a lie.

Their is no way America is ever going to allow all markets to be controlled like an communist country does.
No democrats want them to be. It is just a lie to say otherwise. So when you use the word communist, all I see is someone lying or ignorant as hell.

Note the words you use. "take over health care". "private sector cannot compete".
Obama care is using the private sector in all ways. Their is no public option. So stop with the lies. You do not seem to even know what Obama care is.
What is in Massachusetts is the same as Obama care. No healthcare markets are being impeded by the Romneycare in that state.
Proof your claims are lies.

When Romney instituted his health care plan in Massachusetts, did you call him a communist? When he promoted his state run plan in the debates, did you call him a communist?

<quoted text> The flat tax was used until 1913, which wasn't enough, so the govt imposed the income tax. The fact is the govt now depends on ALL taxes for revenue. The fair tax eliminates ALL federal taxes, including the IRS, and institutes one sales tax. If the poor spend $10, they pay 23% sales tax. If the rich spend $1M, they pay 23% sales tax. The govt collects on the back end instead of off the top.
Many taxes are state taxes. The federal government cannot demand the state to not tax as they wish. I do not think your fair tax proposal takes this into consideration.

Define poor? If you mean those who make less than 250k per year as Obama wants to give tax cuts to, then yes, they do offer me jobs.

You know, if republicans stopped coddling the really rich people, the middle class would likely have a better chance at competing and creating jobs. But republicans and Mitt are hell bent on giving the richest of the rich the best breaks one can get.
The result will be hard on the middle class guy trying to compete in the market.

Of course you will call this communism.
