NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH wrote:
<quoted text>“That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.”--Abraham Lincoln
“You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man’s initiative and independence.”--Abraham Lincoln
“The government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”--Ronald Reagan
Tea Party Platform continued:
5. Abide by the Constitution of the United States - The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land and must be adhered to without exception at all levels of government. This includes the Bill of Rights and other Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and their provisions designed to protect states’ rights and individual liberties.
“A general Dissolution of Principles & Manners will more surely overthrow the Liberties of America than the whole Force of the Common Enemy.”--Samuel Adams, 1779
“The Constitution is the guide which I will never abandon.”--George Washington
“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”--Abraham Lincoln
Tea Party Platform continued:
6. Promote Civic Responsibility - Citizen involvement at the grassroots level allows the voice of the American people to be heard and directs the political behaviors of our representatives at both the local and national level so they, in turn, may be most effective in working to preserve the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness of this country’s citizens.
“The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.”--Patrick Henry
“To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.”--Abraham Lincoln
“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light”--George Washington
“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”--Thomas Jefferson
Tea Party Platform - Home of the Tea Party Movement Platform continued:
7. Reduce the Overall Size of Government - A bloated bureaucracy creates wasteful spending that plagues our government. Reducing the overall size, scope and reach of government at both local and national levels will help to eliminate inefficiencies that result in deficit spending which adds to our country’s debt.
“My observation is that whenever one person is found adequate to the discharge of a duty...it is worse executed by two persons, and scarcely done at all if three or more are employed therein.”--George Washington
“If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy.”--Samuel Adams, 1802
“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”--Benjamin Franklin
Tea Party Platform continued:
8. Believe in the People - The American people, given their guaranteed freedoms, will thrive in a democratic, capitalist environment which allows individuals to strive toward ever greater achievements, innovations and the efficient production of needed and valued goods and services.
“Industry need not wish.”--Benjamin Franklin
“Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.”--Abraham Lincoln
9. Avoid the Pitfalls of Politics-The Tea Party movement is seen as a threat to the entrenched political parties and thus is the continual target of smear campaigns and misrepresentation of its ideals.
Every one of these quotes by our Founders applies to today. I especially liked this one:

“If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy.”
-Samuel Adams

They would probably start another revolt. King Obama today isn't much different than King George then.

However, communistic-like ideologies have complicated a power elite ruling class.

as opposed to a trickle down economy?
Let's look at the logic of trickle down. give the rich large tax breaks so that they go out and buy things stimulating the economy.
the fault in that logic is that the rich already have enough money to buy what they want. giving them a large tax break only makes it harder for the government to pay its bills and provide necessary services....increasing the deficit.
on the other hand, lets say we don't give the rich any tax breaks but give middle and low income Americans a $6,000 tax break. what is going to happen. MILLIONS of Americans are goiong to go out and buy BIG TICKET ITEMS or put a down payment on a home. Americans will be buying cars, refridgerators, stoves, get home repairs, remodeling etc. Now that will stimulate the economy
NOT TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH
Since the government doesn't have any money just where is the money coming from for those $6000 tax breaks? It's trickle down but the government is in there to get it's slice. Cut out the leech and everybody has more money.

You would've been an enemy to the Revolution in the 1700s.

Now you're just an enemy to the liberty, freedom and power to the people which they fought for and won.

Funny how history repeats itself given enough time and enough dupes.

Just think if we had lost the Revolution. You would've been a blind loyalist back then too.

What we liberals want is a more equal distribution of this country's wealth rather than 10% owning approximately 80% of it.
In other words you want the government to steal from those with more and hand it out to those with less. You're not liberals, you're anti-American socialists.

The problem is you want it to go through the government first so they can steal their slice for the slackers!
if homers industry is doing as well as he claims, there are some very rich folks involved. Those rich folks pay homer. Homer, himself can get rich if he uses that money wisely. The libturds are idiots.

Yes, let's just squeeze off the lifeblood of the economy even more since the rich already pay more than their fair share so half of us don't have to pay anything. We're not squeezing them enough.

Let's just choke ourselves too while we're at it. And pretend we're the economy.

Vehicles & Small Engines

Because higher ethanol fuel blends (like E15 and E85) have less energy content than regular gasoline, they deliver lower fuel economy and cost consumers more money at the pump. They are also corrosive when used in most automobiles, meaning they can harm engines and compromise vehicle performance. Even so, our government is mandating increased ethanol in our fuels, putting biofuels mandates ahead of the safety and convenience of American consumers and manufacturers.

Decreased Fuel Economy
Ethanol contains 33 percent less energy per gallon than gasoline, and vehicles fueled with ethanol cover fewer miles per gallon than those running on conventional gasoline. The higher the ethanol blend, the lower the fuel economy, meaning consumers must fill up at the pump more frequently.

Damage to Vehicles and Performance
Beyond the damage to your wallet, ethanol can also damage vehicles and affect performance—corroding metals, causing rubber to swell and causing engines to break down more quickly. Some ethanol blends should not be used on certain engines and motors at all. EPA’s E15 waiver covers only 2001 and newer motor vehicles. E15 is not appropriate for heavy-duty vehicles or vehicles built before 2000, nor is it fit for boats and small motors, including those in lawnmowers and chainsaws.

Higher ethanol blends may also damage newer automobiles. A study from the Coordinating Research Council, commissioned by U.S. automakers and oil companies, found that 25 percent of cars approved by the EPA to run on E15 experienced engine damage—and even failure. The study estimates that at least 5 million cars currently on the road have similar characteristics to the cars that failed as part of the study.

Automakers, aware of the damage ethanol can cause, are now advising new owners not to fill up on E15. For newer vehicles still under warranty, use of E15 may constitute a violation of warranty terms, leaving customers on the hook for costly repair bills. Toyota and Lexus have even placed warning labels on gas caps, along with instructions in the owner’s manual not to use E15.

Intermediate blends may also cause some non-road engines and motors to run at higher temperatures and experience unintentional clutch engagement, according to a Government Accountability Office report.

Libtard logic!

Here's what you don't seem to understand, those 2 people hire 1000 people to do various jobs, thus allowing those 1000 people to buy cars. More people than just the rich buy cars. I don't understand why you loony left wingers have such a hatred for the rich (other than you've been told to hate them). Take the money you make from the rich folks and get rich if you so choose.
