More disinformation from Leftists to impose confusion and division amongst our people. When a nation's people lose faith in its own ideals, they are ripe for the insidious words of the worst of the worst.

Where is flip rmoney's "jobs plan"? Does it include outsourcing and more tax cuts for the super rich "job creators?" And since tax breaks have created the surplus of jobs we're experiencing right now how about we just not tax the rich for a few years. Then everyone can get back to work. The tax breaks have done wonders for the economy so far. And cutting funding to the 47 percent should motivate people to get all the lucrative jobs created by the rich folks. Or motivate them to rob people to feed their kids. There's going to be a booming penal industry soon.

Amazing how many low-information voters are just willng to bend over and let Romney and his corporate cronies ram it to them over and over. Do you think you're so inferior to the wealthy that you have to just lie there and take it. Good on the Sensata workers who now they're better than that - because they're real Americans, unlike Romney. Romney' running for one reason only - to make himelf more money by further eroding the middle class' strength so they can't fight back against corporate takeovers of the US economy - or, as Romney would have it, the Chinese economy since the US won't exist long under Romney. He'd sell his own grandmother to make an easy buck. Facts are facts - ask your aching @ssholes if you don't believe it.

How come nobody ever figures it out that Donald Trump has been going on and on and on for years about having a trade war with China and that he endorsed Romney in exchange for a trade war with China? All people know about is the made up stuff from MSNBC and from Fox. People need to think for themselves. If you see a guy asking for a trade war with China and then you see all of the Republican candidates going to see the guy and begging him for his endorsement and fighting over him, and then he selects Romney to endorse and to go on TV shows and support, and next you hear Romney talking about forcing China to bring its currency up to its real value and slap tariffs on Chinese imports, that tells all of you that Romney gave Trump his trade war with China in exchange for him being a surrogate for him and for his endorsement.

If you read up on globalization, you find out that we stopped Japan from overtaking us economically by forcing Japan to bring it's currency up to its real value.

MSNBC is NOT going to tell you how to have a trade war with China nor that it is Donald Trump who made this happen because they want to sell it that Obama is doing something about China, but he's not having a trade war with China.

Fox does not want people focused on a solution like a trade war with China because it was Bush who let the jobs all go to China in the first place and all their function is, is to try to control the outcome of the elections, so no one is talking about globalization and about currency wars and the end of cheap oil - nothing real is ever being said on MSNBC nor on Fox. All MSNBC talks about is welfare is so great and that huge bankrupt state pensions are so great, and they say Ryan and Romney would end SS and Medicare, but they have NO plan of how to keep SS and Medicare, none, zip, nada.

All Fox is ever going to say is hate on all Dems and vote in all Repubs. That's what it exists for, and that is what their employees are paid to do, to elect Rs.

And the people are so dumbed down they never read between the lines, nor look to see what the actions the candidates would take even are.

In other words, the tea party will vote for Romney not because they figured out he is going to do a trade war with China, but because Fox tells them to vote for ONLY all Republicans. And they do what they are told by the TV, by 5 people on TV. We have 320 million people in this country, but the people are so dumb that they let 5 unqualified folks from the TV tell them who to elect, and they don't even tell them why nor what those people will do, that's why no one even understands the trade war with China. Plus, no one reads books, so they get NO real information. this is why they have no clue cheap oil ran out, globalization is about to end, Romney will do a trade war with China, the dollar is about to no longer be the world's reserve currency. No one on TV is talking about the real things and people just repeat the hate stuff from TV.

I don't get how you can watch Trump demand a trade war with China for the last four years and then see all of the Repubs trying to get Trump's endorsement and then see Romney say he is going to do a trade war with China, and no one figures it out. If all you ever hear is Sean hannity's hate stuff, I guess you never see nor understand anything real.

What Romney would do is have a trade war with China and bring manufacturing back to the U.S. He would leave the Bush tax cuts on the rich, not end them, and not lower their taxes further, just leave them where they are now as opposed to Obama ending the tax cuts on the rich. Romney would make passive income non-taxed and end the death tax, and what they do is they deal with the $120 trillion of debt in Social Security and Medicare, means test the programs and begin to phase them out, and begin to move Medicare into vouchers. I said back in the 1980s they should just give everyone a check to go and buy insurance. the Dems have NO plan how to pay out $85 TRILLION in Medicare to the baby boomers, so you are looking at either a big national sales tax to do so or at making it into vouchers and even means testing the vouchers. As it goes bankrupt in the next two years, it WILL be made into vouchers and it should have been made into vouchers about 30 years ago when the World War II folks who paid zero into Medicare began to use up billions per year in Medicare. That's when they should have made it into vouchers, because those old timers thought the government was insane giving them all of that free expensive medical care, no one would have complained if the government had done the right thing 30 years ago. today everyone got so used to it. When you hand out entitlements, at first people think the government is crazy, and they feel embarrassed, then they get used to it and they start to brag about all that they get, then phase III is they complain about having to pay one cent for it. That's where we are at now.

The other thing is they cut $800 billion out of free rest homes for wealthy seniors, and Obama also made a 4 year waiting period when rich seniors hand their homes and estates over to their kids to lie that they are poor to get free rest homes, now they have to wait 4 years after they give their kids their homes in order to lie that they are poor and get free rest homes.

My guess is they also cut welfare programs, as well they should. And they broaden the tax base, make everyone pay federal income taxes, which is a good idea in a way.

You are talking false numbers because there are NO accurate figures on the costs of entitlement programs.

that is such crap about eliminating the minimum wage. Here one percent of the people make almost all of the money, and, all of you tea party types are old retired people who live off of big union pensions and off of several government pensions and you want to end the minimum wage not on you, oh no, you want to end the minimum wage on young people, you want to end unions on young people when you live fat retired on union pensions. You want to end social security and Medicare on young people while the tea party all lives fat on social security and Medicare. You want OTHER people to go without everything you get.

Only stupid people think to dump on those who make the least to solve problems.

Sure. The real kicker is going to be when they have to give 80 million baby boomers social security and medicare for 20 years and then they have to cut up the military in order to give that stuff out. That will define a lot of things. Will the U.S. be a military empire and have no social programs or will it take down it's military industrial complex to give the voters SS and Medicare? What in the world will the tea party folks do if the Repubs opt to keep the huge military and end SS and Medicare?? One thing is for sure, we can't have both. Almost all of our spending goes to Medicare, SS and military spending.

Sure there are. It's on the National Debt Clock. It is over $120 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities in SS and Medicare.

So divide $120 trillion over 20-30 years the baby boomers will live retired, okay, so you need $5-6 trillion per year JUST to pay out SS and Medicare. I have yet to see ONE person on MSNBC ever discuss this nor state how they will pay for this. All they say is romney/Ryan will privatize SS and Medicare, but they have NO plan of how to keep it themselves. It's always "just keep SS, just keep Medicare as it is, just keep paying out the ginormous government pensions, just keep all the welfare programs." That's all they say on MSNBC.

You STILL don't get the solution is trade war?? You STILL do not hear Romney telling you he will have a trade war with China?? You just think dump on low wage young workers, no reading of books, no thinking about a trade war with China???

Do you old folks get it that your SS and Medicare tax money went to the World War II people who have been on those things for about 40 years now and that you need young workers paying in so you can get SS and Medicare?? If you pay them nothing, you get no money going into SS and Medicare and it collapses in a few months, rather than in two more years.

the tea party can't just dump on other people and think that this country is somehow still rich and still productive and not in debt and that it is 1950 and that the old folks can still all collect 2-3 government pensions and that the young will just have to go without everything for ever so the old people can live fat. If the nation is bankrupt and in debt, then every generation has to take austerity cuts.

The truth is most of the government spending goes to old people. That is who gets Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, VA pensions, local, state and federal pensions - all old people.

No there is not. More fiction figures. How does any one know what the true costs are without eliminating the waste and fraud in the programs? The programs are full of waste and fraud in the billions of dollars. They have no clue what the true costs of programs are.

What they need to do is - number one, admit most of the money is spent on military spending and on SS and on Medicare and cut all three of those things, obviously. cut out half of our military spending, we would still be the biggest military spender in the world. Number two, cut out SS and Medicare on those who have other incomes retired. Cut it on women who never worked, end the double payment to men. Make medicare into vouchers NOW, not in 20 years from now. Just do it now, and like Ryan says, means test the vouchers. that would end the $120 trillion of debt in SS and Medicare, and cut our spending by 2/3ds. We would not be borrowing money, and we could pay off our debt. Those who get local, state or federal pensions, means test them on SS and Medicare, and do not give them SS as they get all tax money anyway in their pensions. ONLY give SS and full free Medicare to poor old people and give the dirt poor ones the double payments, not the women who never worked and the wealthy men who don't need the money. Make a system that is fair to everyone and that cuts federal spending by 2/3ds. Another thing they are going to have to do is cut the state pensions way down. CA has over $500 billion in unfunded pension promises and people keep leaving the state as the state continues to come up with new taxes to feed those fat pensions to a few people. they need to cut those pensions by half or more. We have clerical workers on $75k pensions for 30 years and they are on SS and Medicare. House painters get $100K pensions, cops get $200K pensions. Prison guards get $150K pensions, all paid for in taxes. So they have $500 billion of unpaid for promises so they keep creating new taxes and lying that is is for the schools. Yeah, for the retired teachers. None of the money ever gets to the kids in the schools. CA has been doing this for almost 40 years now. Float bonds for the schools, lottery money for the schools, new taxes for the schools, yet the schools are total crap, and they always want more money. The teachers' unions own CA. That's the problem.

IF you have a job, which I doubt because you're probably a self-employed "artist" on public assistance, you have that job because SOMEONE who pays taxes is willing to employ you. IF you ARE so smart, you probably have a useless degree in, say, History or Library Science, and are unemployable. Therefore, you are bitter and angry at successful people. You're sad. Grow up and get on with your life. You're not that smart if you need Uncle Sam to feed you.
