So what is your point? YOU stated "Paul does not have a License you silly pos. he could not pass his Medical Boards. He is a fraud and a Liar. Plain and simple."

A simple search just like the one YOU suggested I do would prove otherwise.

How well did the republicans do when George bush bankrupted America, how much trickle down did you all feel? Trickle down doesn't work,how about instead of a minimum wage ,we have a maximum wage?why should a single person be allowed to have. A trillion dollars how much pie does one person need,,,,if a kid was on the playground with a grocery sized bag of candy. While all the other kids had no candy,all the other kids would kick his ass and take some candy, crying about obama. Is like admitting that the republicans started a huge fire. And then they criticize Obama. Because he can't extinguish the fire ,,,,god I hate all you sick sick sick. Evil selfish. Fake Christian republicans.
I was going to reply to this, but there is so much uneducated ignorance in your post that I figured it'd be a waste of time.
There is one exception. You said trickle down economics doesn't work. You're right about that. In theory it does, kind of like Communism. In reality, it doesn't work.

Can you tell me why a fire man is worth less money than a doctor! A fireman saves lives. Risked his or her life in doing so , why do we still pay a doctor when a misdiagnosis is given? Why does a lawyer get hundreds of thousands of dollars in a class action law suit. When the people he represents get peanuts. Why does a doctor need three houses and a Porsche in the driveway.,why does it cost 40 ,000 dollars for 1 day in the hospital , why is an MRI 1200 dollars, greed greed greed, wanting the scales to be not so tipped is not communism ,that word is bull shit ,, capitalism is good ,but when it devastates a community like Walmart puting all the mom and pop businesses out of work ,it becomes a problem,, People used to make good money. But still care about there community,that's good capitalism.,the bull shit going on today is as unpatriotic as anything I have ever seen, so shut the hell up with that stupid ass word. Communist,,, being fair is not. Communism. It's What America used to be. Sure a doctor should make better money Than a ditch digger,but how much more? Greed is not a good thing. Even if ya call it capitalism,,,wake up Do ya want your neighbors to work hard. And have nothing to show for it., call me whatever ya want. But I'm sick of watching America. Fall apart because. Of greed, Defend greed And lose our country.

What would be better for you types is to have had a education then you would have learn for yourself about the class and chaste system of the capitalism, your mind set is that of a medieval
feudalist who worship the bourgeois as a poor broke proletarian mindset. it wouldn't hurt you to know and the some of the other member of your party to study economics and uinderstand that some countries don't work well as a capitalistic state,because they share their wealth with their people who earn that wealth you can call it socialism,marxism, or communism which is what baggers do who don't own nothing but just more miserly and ignorance,so keeping chasing them koch brother crumbs and see what you get from them when you really need them .

Aren't the people who choose to buy paint at Walmart responsible for destroying the mom and pop paint store? it seems that most people who do that prefer to buy their paint from Walmart. Isn't that really a consumer exercising his choice where he wants to spend his money? Just what do you think should be done to these consumers who favor patronizing Walmart rather than other businesses?

No,,, people shop at Walmart because they don't have any money ,and Walmart undercuts the competition,which is ruining America. Monopoly is bad , what do you think America will look like in 10 years,,, when Walmart is the only place left to get anything, that's when they will make us pay. Whatever they want, And nobody will be able to afford food or clothing, because when there is no competition left. That is a dictatorship,,be carful what ya wish for. It might come true,,,use your head. What do ya think is gonna happen to us when Walmart is the only store left, So you are saying dictatorship is the American way???? Please define dictatorship ,,,,,it's sneaking in the back door desquised as capitalism., and you are to blind to see it. Choice is supposed to be democracy. Not. Monopoly

Ask yourself. Why does Walmart need to take over every business Why can't they pay a fair wage. How many billions do they need. Why don't they care about ther fellow Americans?when is enough enough. Do you like seeing empty buildings where family businesses used to be. Does that make ya feel good about America,,,,? It's a takeover of America. And you see no harm in that? Wow. When old man Walt was still alive he was proud of American made products. And his workers,,,,but now the greedy kids are running the show, and you support that ..? Are you happy watching America fall. In the name of capitalism, do you know what patriotism is? Do you care about your brothers and sisters,? I say again. Why does Walmart need to close every other business in the neighborhood,??????? Why???? Why won't they pay a fair wage.?

Aren't there also well off people who shop at Walmart because they too prefer lower prices generally to higher prices they might find elsewhere? How does Walmart pricing its products lower to gain customers bad for consumers? Let's say you are right and Walmart succeeds in driving its competition out of business. I will assume it would have done so because consumers preferred Walmart to other alternatives. What do you think will happen if Walmart then begins to behave like a monopolist by raising prices and generally providing poor customer satisfaction? The lure of profits would be an invitation for other competitors to enter the market. The moment Walmart even begins to behave as a monopolist would be a signal to other competitors. As long as there are not overly restrictive barriers to entry there is virtually no chance Walmart would be successful in harming consumers through monopoly power. The only way it could effectively exercise monopoly power would be if it somehow enlisted government to restrict its would be competitors. Your scenario cannot happen in a free society where other people are permitted to compete for consumers based on how well they please customers. Walmart has no power to coerce customers through its doors. People are free to choose other businesses for whatever reason they like. People democratically vote to voluntarily spend their money at Walmart obviously because they believe it is better than their next best alternative. we don't need to fear private entities like Walmart. We can fire them at a moments notice if they fail to please us as customers. That is no dictatorship. The dictatorship we should concern ourselves with is government. They are the only entity permitted to force us to do anything.
