Fact, only 63% of all Democrats in Congress voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964 compared to 80% of all Republicans.

It's not a dem vs repub thing....it's a conservative racists vs a liberal thing. I don't care what they call themselves. The fact remains that the conservative racist southern democrat has evolved into the conservative racist southern republican.

If Abe Lincoln were alive today he'd be a dem and not a repub.

The President’s Opening Bid on a Grand Bargain: Aim High
By Robert Reich / November 12, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/aevft55
I hope the President starts negotiations over a “grand bargain” for deficit reduction by aiming high. After all, he won the election. And if the past four years has proven anything it’s that the White House should not begin with a compromise.
Assuming the goal is $4 trillion of deficit reduction over the next decade (that’s the consensus of the Simpson-Bowles commission, the Congressional Budget Office, and most independent analysts), here’s what the President should propose:
First, raise taxes on the rich – and by more than the highest marginal rate under Bill Clinton or even a 30 percent (so-called Buffett Rule) minimum rate on millionaires. Remember: America’s top earners are now wealthier than they’ve ever been, and they’re taking home a larger share of total income and wealth than top earners have received in over 80 years.
Why not go back sixty years when Americans earning over $1 million in today’s dollars paid 55.2 percent of it in income taxes, after taking all deductions and credits? If they were taxed at that rate now, they’d pay at least $80 billion more annually — which would reduce the budget deficit by about $1 trillion over the next decade. That’s a quarter of the $4 trillion in deficit reduction right there.
A 2% surtax on the wealth of the richest one-half of 1 percent would bring in another $750 billion over the decade. A one-half of 1 percent tax on financial transactions would bring in an additional $250 billion.
Add this up and we get $2 trillion over ten years — half of the deficit-reduction goal.
Raise the capital gains rate to match the rate on ordinary income and cap the mortgage interest deduction at $12,000 a year, and that’s another $1 trillion over ten years. So now we’re up to $3 trillion in additional revenue.
Eliminate special tax preferences for oil and gas, price supports for big agriculture, tax breaks and research subsidies for Big Pharma, unnecessary weapons systems for military contractors, and indirect subsidies to the biggest banks on Wall Street, and we’re nearly there.
End the Bush tax cuts on incomes between $250,000 and $1 million, and — bingo — we made it:$4 trillion over 10 years.
And we haven’t had to raise taxes on America’s beleaguered middle class, cut Social Security or Medicare and Medicaid, reduce spending on education or infrastructure, or cut programs for the poor.
Mr. President, I’d recommend this as your opening bid. With enough luck and pluck, maybe even your closing bid. And if enough Americans are behind you, it could even be the final deal./ http://robertreich.org/post/35591032374
Sanders: Going Over 'Fiscal Cliff' Better than Bad Tax Deal
Senator says new Congress could recover 'in the first month or two'
November 12, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/a4vxhsj
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said Monday that if the lame-duck Congress can't agree on a tax deal by the end of the year, briefly going over the "fiscal cliff" is preferable to accepting a bad deal.
“Is it better to deal with this issue in the next session rather than accept a bad agreement in this session?” Sanders said during a press conference at his Burlington office. "Yes, it is.”/ http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2012/11/...
Why don't you tax everyone who makes over $250K a year 100% for income over $250? Woodn't you end the deficit in just one year?

Tell us brainless one, what exactly will raising taxes on the rich do for the counrty? The difference in taxes collected will be marginal. Then the wealthy will lose confidence in the economy and not invest. We'll be right where we are now. Do you think the wealthy owe you something?

Silly Libtards, the One Percenters of Greece and France are moving to more friendly countries. They can do that as they are rich.
Just look at the State of New York who's Democrat governor, Andrew Cuomo, is trying to cut taxes for the rich so they will move back to NY and pay some taxes.
Why do you think John Kerry kept his $4M yacht in Rhode Island instead of Mass.? To avoid paying $750K in taxes to Mass. What he was doing was not illegal and the only reason why he did relocate his yacht and pay those taxes was so he did not look like a hypocrite. Not that he is not a hypocrite, he just did not want to look like one.

Since then, the indications of electoral criminality have been overwhelming. First there are the anecdotes, such as the court-appointed Republican poll watchers illegally expelled from 13 Philadelphia polling places in wards that, in most cases, went 99 percent for Obama; the poll observers who noted what they considered vote fraud but were powerless to stop; and the Democrats who actually bragged about voting more than once.
Then there are the statistics, such as this staggering fact: in 59 Philadelphia districts, Romney failed to get even one vote. Final Obama-Romney tally: 19,605 to 0.

Newt Gingrich was on Fox and Friends this morning and he contradicted what had been said about Gen. Partaeus' testimony in front of the closed-door House hearing a month a go. It had been leaked that Gen. Peytaeus had backed Obama's story that it was a protest about that Youtube film but Newt said it was the exact opposite of what Gen. Peytaeus had actually said.
This would give credence that Obama is blackmailing Peyraeus and had him resign before the new hearings this week.
Newt Gingrich and Fox. Now there's a pair sporting true credibility. I feel sorry for you.

Rogue. YOU LOST. Your celebrations were too early. You and your birther friends werre typical "premature Romney ejaculators." Give up. Repeat after me : "congratulations, Mr. President Obama".

Rogue, Rogue, you said, clearly, very clearly, prior to Nov 6 that Obama was losing some of the black vote. In 2008, blacks voted 90% for Obama. In 2012, blacks voted 90% for Obama. I'm sure, if the Repubs had not rigged the ballot boxes, it would have been more like 95%. Do you want to discuss the latino vote which you also said was down or do you just want to drop it?

Sad America-loving conservatives already demanding secession
Aw, the party of 'Merika has an enormous post-election sad:
In the aftermath of last week's presidential election, residents in at least nineteen states have put up petitions on the government's "We the People" petitioning website seeking the right to secede from the rest of the country.[…]
Petitions for secession filed from Louisiana and Texas have already received well over 10,000 signatures. Per the website's own rules, petitions that garner 25,000 signatures or more within 30 days require a response from the Obama administration.
Apparently this is the part of the conservative realization that (1) yes, the president is still a scary black man, and (2) nobody in America but them has a problem with that. There's also been some premise going around that Obama's moderateness and centrism the last four years only goes to prove how much he's going to be a crazy secret-Muslim radical during the next four years, and if you can unpack that logic, you've got me beat. I have no idea what they're going on about. Oh, and the Texas version has already topped the 25K threshold, so congratulations, Texas conservatives! You'll be getting a special note from the Obama administration suggesting where you can go!
This doesn't seem to be a purely regional thing, since even folks in Oregon and New York are piping up with their own petitions (and really, if you're an Oregon or New York conservative, I feel a good amount of pity for you, I really do). But I've said it before, and I'll say it again: This notion of conservative secession has its merits. Of course, as "True America" we'd want to attach some constraints to the separatists: no nuclear weapons, get your own damn military, and we'll be carving out territory for you that consists entirely of places close to sea level, so that you can ignore climate change from the best possible vantage point. But this sounds pretty doable, once the logistics get worked out. So what are you going to call yourselves? United Galts of America? New Jesusland? That's great, we'll send you a card.
