I cound't agree more with you Carol. It's ironic you use this as an example. I left the Democrat Party too when Bill Clinto was president! I did it for the very same reason. There is nothing left in that party appealing. Just a bunch of lying, crazy, frustrated and angry anti-American misfits.
It's almost like a fog rolled in over the democratic party over the past few decades that has blinded and confused them.

What I really think is behind the irrational hatred by many on the left is their much bigger hatred towards anyone striving toward higher ground or any resemblence of societal standards or anyone daring to believe in a higher power. Unfortunately, these are the blind loyalists who are too far gone to help.

But I'm very glad to know you proved yourself to be a clear thinker and no longer believe in the "god of big government" with their fog of lies and deception. It says a lot about you.

It's encouraging to know there's still hope for others like you.

Have a good day. Have to rearrange furniture.

<quoted text> You want an easy way to fix this damn tax problem? It won't cost one cent! Get rid of withholding. Make every taxpayer write the three or four checks every payday. Make them feel the pain! Ask somebody how much they make. The first words out of their mouth will be 'I bring home'. Most people can't even tell you what their gross pay is without looking.
Great idea, but the average American is completely unable to budget in that manner.

That's why they vote for the likes of Obama.

For years you blame our ills on the poor, the 47%.
Now you change it to blame the rich, who you've defended for years, and the ones who Bush bailed out with TARP.
You're too stupid to keep your arguments straight!!
<quoted text>
I pay taxes, I don't raise them, Obama did that.

That 47% doesn't represent the "poor", it represents the Obama Nation. It represents you and the rest of your party who compares your low effort incomes to that of the best and brightest. Being the low information drone that you are, you feel cheated.

OMG, I can't stop laughing. I think the fog is in your brain. BTW, I was listening to NPR yesterday about the cost of diabetes in this country,$70 billion. You think about that for a moment; and the biggest problem related to that is obesity.
So, while you and your compatriots whine and moan and groan about the size of sodas, twinkies and donuts; think about all the healthy people who are paying for those who stubbornly say, "if I want to be fat and drink a case of soda a day and a dozen twinkies"

The rest of your post is utter nonsense. No one is jealous of you making $15.00 a hour; trust me. The Democratic Party is not against success; we are against greed and abuse of the American people. But the fog in your brain caused by eating sugar can't comprehend that.

Gunner; it's the Republican party that is anti American. Not only anti American worker, but also anti women, gay, veteran, elderly, student, immigrant, education, children, civil rights, medicare, medicaide, social security, epa, hell, what in hell are you for anyway?
You're closer to the truth than you think, because the Democrat party is for special favors for all the special interest groups that you list, at the expense of the country as a whole.

I hear this all the time from libs....tax loop holes for
sending jobs overseas.
My opinion...there is nothing that has done more to send jobs
overseas the this crazy progressive tax code and massive FED reg
and Unions.
All of these are liberal progressive ideas and concepts and not in
line with any true American conservative principles.

I'm not sure I would ever call it irrational or even hatred, but my view of what's behind the current distaste for the Grumpy Old Prick party is lying, hypocritical, sanctimonious, hateful racist old biddies like you.

No one is trying to avoid taxes. In fact, it's only the republicans talking about tax reform, fairness across the board and closing loopholes. The Democrats just keep wanting to raise them to pay for more government waste, fraud and duplication.
There have been laws on the books for decades protecting children and everyone else from abuses in the work force.
Unions did their job. Now they've become leeches.
"no one is trying to avoid taxes"; oh my effing word, take this woman to the asylum
Why do you suppose Mitt didn't reveal his tax returns? Why didn't he reveal how much he has hidden in Switzerland and the Caymans??
Why did he pay income tax to another country? Why did he pay only 13%? You're either insane or retarded.

Fact: Insurance companies determine what is covered & what is not. Not the patient or doctor.
With single payer, these decisions are made by panels of doctors & administrators. In insurance companies, these decision are made by those who get bonuses for turning down claims.
Galt has never had any claim or procedure denied.

Why should any "administrator" have any say?
