<quoted text>Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Ronald Reagan raise taxes 11 times? And the national deficit went up triple and-a-half under his guidance. So..........
Reagan cut the overall income rates while ending "loop holes" that you liberals always say you're against. Effectively he lowered the tax rate for everyone while ensuring that everyone was paying something.
As for this "tax raises", things like the payroll tax was required to keep social security solvent,(think Governor Walker requiring unions to contribute 6% of their salaries to their pensions so that, ya know, there actually was money in the pensions for their retirement) he also raised gas taxes-which falls in line with, if you're the one using the roads you should be the ones paying for it.

A far cry from the class warfare of "tax the rich" and the "evil corporations". Which reminds me, no corporation has ever paid taxes in the history of the world. Governments use "corporate taxes" simply as a politically efficient means of having the companies collect taxes from the people.

As for Reagan's deficits. When he came into office, deficits as a % of GDP was a little over 3%. When he left office... it was a little over 3%.
Of course, he was able to bring unemployment way down, drastically reduce inflation (remember "stagflation"?), expand our military and economic influence that ended the Cold War with the economic and political implosion of Russia. His reduction of government red tape and regulations led to what, 8%+ gains of GDP growth as well as record breaking small business start ups?

What exactly have we gained under the record breaking deficits of Obama?

What his policies of lower taxes

Amen brother (or sister, as may be the case).
I always pay my bills and I never mind paying taxes to pay our national bills, as long as our elected representatives are managing our money wisely. I even allow a lot of latitude as to what is considered wise, since opinions vary. I like my roads without potholes and I want to know America will not leave me out to dry if Iím ever hurting for medical treatment or homeless and starving if Iím ever unable to provide for myself. Just basic stuff really. Oh yeah, national defense and Iím sure a bunch of other things too.
However, Iím totally against misappropriation of our money. Here, Iím more rigid and donít allow much latitude defining misappropriation. Iím completely closed to the legitimacy of politicians pandering to private interests and channeling funds to them in return for favors.
I agree with you about the potholes. However, my belief is the federal government has no constitutional authority to provide healthcare, welfare, or food stamps. The States have more latitude in dealing with those issues.

I get it. You donít like Obama and I canít change that. But why have such an edge?
Thereís a lot of corruption in the government, but I am not aware that Obama is directly responsible for any of it. Itís bigger than Obama.
I appreciate the way Obama has done his job and have no reason to believe Romney would do it as well. I have no problem believing that you probably disagree completely.
The point is that the president, whomever it might be, needs to be reasonably moderate and be prepared to apply a balance of Keynesian, Austrian School and other principles as necessary to manage the economy as time passes. He/She also needs to have a Congress willing to negotiate a balance of bipartisan principles to govern responsibly.
Like Obama? I don't like him, but I don't dislike him. It's simply a disagreement over the principles and policies he puts forth and those of his party (though plenty I disagree with when it comes to Republicans).

The "edge" as you call it is do to the needless pain, suffering and wasted sacrifice of the American people that comes from the government curtailing our freedoms for a false sense of security, the "nanny state" ideology that they know what's better for us than we do. The "edge" is that the policies put for by Obama and the Democrats are not going to succeed in effectively changing (and often make it worse) the issues that we're facing as a country. They never have.

Moderation is not the key to solving these problems. There is not always a middle ground, one side must prevail and one side must fall. There's no way we can continue on the path we're on. Paul Ryan's budget would be a start, yet we got tv ads of Ryan throwing grandma in a wheelchair off a cliff. Ya, bipartisanship and moderation. These past few years, even when Republicans had control of Congress and the Presidency under Bush, "bipartisanship" always meant Republicans caving into Democrats.

Would you mind pointing to one thing, just one thing that Obama has done that you feel is an example of the "good" things of his Presidency? Any of that going to do with economics?

How is it that Obama, wife and entourage can attend two fundraisers - one at Sarah Jessica Parker's house and one at the five star Plaza Hotel, and stick taxpayer's with the bill because he paid a short visit to the WTC?

So, he raises $4.5 million dollars and combines the trip with a visit to the WTC and we get charged for this fundraising event....as well as the whole bill for his entourage.

I don't care to hear how many other president's did the same thing, etc., etc! The whole thing is a joke on us and is wrong no matter who it is!

I'd sure like to know how many millions these "combined" fundraisers are costing us!

Much better. Now that we know what youíre against, Iíd be interested in learning what you would advocate instead (other than simply repealing everything you are against).

Rough edge, but good question. Please investigate and report back with your findings. Fox News may be a good place to start the journey.

Well, some people know it. Since it's new news, I suppose it will hit the airwaves yet......however, found this one. Rather interesting synopsis:

"WTH did that Obama go? Have you listened recently to this Chicago Doppelganger who's replaced him? This 2012 Obama is strident and mean, even deceitful, divisive, telling half-truths after half-truths. He's using Air Force One as his personal Brinks truck with wings to collect cash all over the country, disguising the trips as official."

Who is this guy pretending to be president?

Here's another one you might like...well, some of you will anyway.
~~~~~~~~~~

"Is the taxpayer funding Obama's re-election campaign? Republican fury as President uses $180,000-an-HOUR Air Force One to fly to fundraisers."

President Barack Obama has already held more than twice as many re-election fundraising events than President George W. Bush did in his entire 2004 re-election campaign.

According to Mark Knoller of CBS News, unofficial keeper of presidential statistics, Obama has held 124 fundraisers - about one every three days - since he launched his re-election bid last April compared to the 57 Bush held to raise cash for his re-election bid eight years ago ->>>>>>

How can you be objective with stuff like this? How can you not see what has really happened and deny it happened?

This is a good read. Too much to copy and paste. But if you want to take the time, and it's not that long, this is a great eye opener - leaving little controversy..IMO.

Dakota Hudson Dear....... He treats everyone more than fair, EXCEPT Americans. He just proved that. 800,000 my ass, more like,in the millions and not just kids, lots of 30 years olds.
Work permits for Them , for what jobs?
They under cut Americans for jobs , they work cheaper and don't have to pay taxes. They get their educations $10,000 or more {some free}less than American students. They get their educations and then go back home. They don't stay here and pay taxes.
Who's paying for all this, the working American of course. You and me, if you work and not on the draw.
