Flat tax is a gimmick.

One of our greatest Presidents 5 Star General Eisenhower had the wealthiest pay 91% in taxes that gave relief to all Americans.

I am sure you realize that during 8 years of Bush and Cheney, State and Local taxes went way up in most of our 50 States.

Truth be told BOTH corrupt parties use the tax code to benefit their friends.

That is why our tax code is over 76,000 pages.

Hey Quirky. I have a technical question for you since I believe you are into science and tech.

Do you know what the composition of the solder was that General Electric used for its televisions and heavy military electronics in the 40s 50s and early 60s.?

I can't seem to find the answer to this.

I agree, but it's even more tragic than that, IMO. I think the fascist elite are running a puppet show in Washington. They give the republican cast their turn on the boards, then they script for democrats. The ignorant populace, still thinking that there is a two party system responds in a backlash over perceived (but scripted) blunders by the party in power, and predictably votes for the other party. When candidates of both parties are fascists, how can the fascists lose? Their agenda goes forward no matter who gets elected.
The fascists believe, with good reason, I think, that the American public is really unintelligent and easy to manipulate. There are only two things they fear in this country - our Constitution and an armed rebellion by people who know what the fascists are doing. The fascists know that the ignorant public would not fight (or even vote) with rebels who would actually be trying to save their rights and freedoms. Such people have been methodically ridiculed and vilified in the media by propaganda and by politicians to cause a huge rift between the ignorant and the informed. While denigrating constitutionalists, the sock puppet is made to appear to be "helping' people with sops like obamacare (which only aids the medical industry and the insurance industry). The fascists know full well that if you say 'free' to a very large segment of the US population, their eyes light up like Vegas slot machines, To these people,'free' would never mean freedom - it could only mean getting something for nothing.

It's looking at the olive branch. We prefer every nation to be our friends and we extend an olive branch in good will. But for those who mean us harm we have a quiver of arrows ready to defend and we will bring the fight to you.

Don't Panic simply rocks. They have indeed declared war on US. I agree, take the fight there and smash them into the stone age and do it by the god we trust.

You might ask what did Eisenhower do with the money?

He put Americans to work with Shovel Ready Jobs building our infrastructure with roads, bridges, and tunnels all across America.

And when the General left office he told our citizenry the truth about corruption in the Pentagon and Congress.

Why We Fight

http://www.sonyclassics.com/whywefight/main.h...

We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it. The guns and the bombs, the rockets and the warships, are all symbols of human failure. History teaches that war begins when governments believe the price of aggression is cheap./ Dwight D. Eisenhower

He also said Obama is a facist. Do you agree or is he a Marxist like I think he is?

How about some evidence that President Obama is a Marxist? Normally, one would observe behavior and come to conclusion based on those observations. So what behavior have you observed to come to that conclusion?

This is an opinion thread.
Isn't any evidence based on history? Or does history flip flop?
