I would think 50 years of consecutive failure would be enough for most people to understand the liberal democratic agenda at least here in Erie will not work....apparently you still have not yet topped out out your BS meter.
I'm a registered Republican, voted for Reagan once and Pat Buchannan once, believe it or not. Since then I've voted Democrat because Republicans disappointed with their social agenda and deserve to suffer.(OMG look, a fagggggggg!!!!!!)

A year and a half ago I bought my house with cash. What's your success story Mr. Republican? Let me guess: you would have bought a house for cash if taxes weren't so damn high because of Democrats, correct?

PS neither Democrats, Republicans nor taxes keep people down. Only their own fears and brains. Beware of those who say OMG things are so bad, the commies are in power...or whatev.

I forget who said it but I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees. Nobody's keeping you down but you. But if you're determined, headstrong and disciplined ain't nothing gonna keep you down even if just in your own brain...the main factor in achievement BTW.

Man up and be stoic. Nobody respects a wuss.

My success story ? I also am a registered Republican & a member of the RNC for almost 20 years .As for you ...If you voted for Clinton, Obama, Gore & Kerry then you are a "RINO" Republican In Name Only!
You paid cash for your house...good , mine has been paid for for over 20 years , so is my camp. I left the group of those who labor for others years ago & have a successful business which I founded that I run to this day even though I am supposed to be retired.
I do not consider my tax situation to be onerous but there are a lot of freeloaders in this dying city who have laid their tax obligations onto the taxpayers instead of paying a fair share. Someday the singing fat lady masquerading as the tax collector will come knocking when the city & county have to assume the payment of defaulted loans which funded pie in the sky business ventures orchestrated by political hacks & dreamers.
I doubt I will be adversely affected then but my children & grand children if they stay here will be.

Obammy relies on dummies like you to be in the position he is..
You seem to be very upset with life, and unable to express yourself without sounding like a petulant child. Have you looked into anger management therapy?

If I'm a RINO for not wanting the country run by interpretations of Jesus through people's brains enforced by mob rule, then so be it.(Wasn't that the final decider on war with Iraq BTW...Bush praying on it?
So if your cash & camp are paid for there's a good chance much of that income was during the horrible higher tax years. Thanks for proving the necessity of lower taxes to be a lie, although we already had the example of "lower our taxes to create new jobs" which also proved to be largely a lie. At least as far as jobs in the US.
If you're not familiar with Paul Krugman's ideas about how our borrowing is actually low as a percentage of GDP I think you should read about it. Also a fairly recent article in Rolling Stone magazine talked about what banks do now that Glass-Stegal is a thing of the past.
Things like buy freighters, load them with oil and park them offshore both creating shortages and inflating prices, only then to be moved to the mainland to sell at higher prices. Same with buying warehouses, hoarding aluminum until there's a shortage then selling which more than pays for the assets they have to buy and still returns a hefty profit.
Nobody likes lawyers until they need one but I've always liked that idea that a good lawyer will know his adversary's argument as well or better than he does. I don't find that in politics. People hear Sarah Palin say a cutsie dumbed down phrase *wink* and repeat the same stupidity by rote.
I ask you: how well do you know not the replies of Republicans, but what the actual reasoning is behind the arguments of Democrats?

“Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.”

More Democrat ignorance on display as they tear down our military

This ain’t your grandfather’s military. It’s not your father’s or even your older brother or sister’s military. Today’s military, Obama’s troops, look nothing like the military we have come to know, love and respect, and I feel for so bad for our troops.

Obama’s new military has become a politically correct social experiment. And those that don’t buy into the “changes” are purged.

Over the past five years of Obama’s reign, he has overseen the ouster, according to sources at WND, of approximately 200 generals, flag and senior officers.

Many retired officers and war heroes have characterized Obama’s actions as an all-out attack on our Armed Forces.

Senior, battle hardened officers are being replaced with those who fit a diversity model and who will tow the new enlightened military line. Retired Navy Capt. and many times decorated war hero, Joseph John summed it up.“The truly sad story is that many of the brightest graduates of the three major service academies witnessing what the social experiment on diversity is doing to the US military, are leaving the service after five years. We are being left with an officer corps that can be made to be more compliant, that is, exactly what Obama needs to affect his long-range goals for the U.S. Military.”

Rules of engagement have radically changed under Obama, resulting in much higher casualty rates, particularly for our special operators like the SEALs, Rangers and Delta.

One of the most egregious is the new edict of no suppression fire at landings. Troops are much more vulnerable at landing zones and suppression fire can quite literally be a lifesaver.

Capt. John explained to WND that,“physical fitness qualifications for tip of the spear units such as the Rangers, SEALs, Green Berets and combat infantry are being downgraded, so women can be placed in those units. Likewise, women have also been assigned to submarines and ships resulting in relationships at sea that have broken up military families.”

Military dress regulations are being relaxed to allow the caring of Muslim prayer beads, beards, turbans and longer hair. What’s next? Baggy pants and high top sneakers?

The repeal of the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy has resulted in what Capt. John described as a massive amount of sexual assaults on straight personnel. All of which, he says, has been covered up.

Military chaplains have been hamstrung. Bases are now hosting same-sex marriages and homosexual potluck suppers. Great!

Veteran healthcare has gone from bad to worse. If anyone wishes to see what Obamacare will really look like, check out the military and veterans fully government run health care system. It’s a travesty!

But things aren’t all bad. Entertainment for the troops is now more fun and diverse. Take for example, the recent entertainment at the Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, where homosexual service members dressed up as drag queens and lip-synced various songs.

The event was a fundraiser. Were they raising funds for the Wounded Warriors? No. Maybe for the Armed Forces Foundation, Special Ops Warrior Foundation, the Marine Corps Scholarship Fund, or the Navy SEAL Foundation? No, nope, nada, nugatory, and negative.

It was a fundraiser for the Okinawa chapter of OutServe – a nonprofit advocate for the military LGBT community.

So, now you tell me. Say you’re an adversary like North Korea, Iran, China, or Russia. Is there any wonder why these guys no longer fear the United States and our hamstrung, politically correct, social experiment of a military?

I didn't think it was you. There used to be a lot of interesting posters here but people started stealing their names and hassling them so they left. Too bad.

This is too long to pick apart piece by piece but one of the problems is that we have competing rights. Sorry, women are not second class citizens. And much of this is like the dilemma John McCain had. I didn't vote for him but he was hogtied because he voted for something that had 100 things he agreed with only it included not buying more armor for the troop's Humvees.

Well I believe in separation of Church & State but do recognize we are a Christian nation who just happens by law tolerate the beliefs of others. As to the country being run by the interpretations of Jesus Christ ....Fine, as long as it follows what the Constitution provides rather then the Marxist pronouncement of the left wing Socialists who infest the Democratic party.
My income was generated not so much due to any tax structure...it was overtime work & sometimes holding down two jobs.Perhaps if the Welfare class understood the relationship of work to wages they might get off the doorstep of the state & federal government & provide for themselves like generations have done.
As for Sarah Palin ....Having been a Governor of a state & taking on the oil companies speaks volumes over "cutsie remarks"
As for actual reasoning behind the arguments of Democrats ....surely you jest , think far left socialism for an understanding of todays Democratic reality . Thinking is not an element of current.Democratic Political philosophy.
Oh,by the way ....Yes you are indeed a "RINO" who probably should embrace the Democratic Party. You would be much happier there & they deserve one such as astute as yourself !

Not sure what Christian nation means because there is no real meaning to the word Christian other than it's those who say they're Christian. As to Sarah Palin, I'm speaking of her on the national stage. No doubt she got elected in Alaska several times and probably knew her material well.

As to the reasoning of Democrats I'd bet some who like Republicans think like this: it's hard to condemn the lower classes taking handouts when Billionaire's and their companies get them. Why work for minimum wage--less if Republicans had their way--yet have the government give megagooglebucks to corporations who are moving work offshore.

Gotta admit, that's a good point.

Right; "our country was founded by white men, therefore it's a white man's country" seems to be the logic.

BTW, Palin won one election as governor of AK and resigned before the term was up -- and as for 'taking on the oil companies', she was appointed chairman of the agency that oversaw safety on the gas/oil fields, essentially providing cover for the oil industry to do whatever they wanted.

And anyone who thinks that you can live as well off of public assistance as you can from a minimum wage job is sorely misinformed. Then again, facts don't matter when you have prejudice.

You must not have heard. Now when you sign up for assistance they give you a Cadillac and $1000 surf and turf dinner. Meanwhile, those poor, poor corporations just scraping by...
