Your argument sounds so empty when you think of what America ACTUALLY looked like under Reagan vs. what America ACTUALLY looks like under Obama. One would think you would see that.
I do see the difference, and I also see the similarities.

BTW- my argument is the old man who sleep through his last 4 years in office, the only US president to be tried and convicted by the word court, was not the Saint Republicans claim him to be.

Name one single politician on the national stage that's a saint where doing what's right for the American people is concerned. I'm only saying that I would take Reagan any day over what we have had since him. Doesn't mean I think he's perfect because I don't.

Yes you made that quite clear in your previous post.

Please feel free to correct me, but I do believe you have told me you are not a Republican.

Since I specifically said, "not the Saint Republicans claim him to be", that would not apply to you, would it?

Of course not. I wasn't aware that I had to be a Republican to like Ronald Reagan or to realize that he was one of the great president's this nation has ever known. BTW I have told you that I'm an independent on several occasions.

Let me rephrase my original statement then.

Reagan is not the Saint Republicans claim him to be nor was he
one of the greatest president's this nation has ever known .

I stand corrected, I misquoted you, you did not say 'you were not a Republican', you said you are "a Independent" my apologies sir..

The United States Senate overwhelmingly supported a tax on Internet sales today, voting 69-27 in favor of the Marketplace Fairness Act. The outcome was expected after a similar non-biding show of approval passed the Senate with roughly the same number of votes, despite extraordinary opposition from eBay and other major Internet organizations.

As we’ve written about before, supporters argue that tax-free Internet retailers have an unfair advantage over their physical counterparts and it robs states of billions in revenue. Opponents counter that the current bill would create an unwieldy tax code labyrinth, which would be forced on startups and Internet retailers before software technology could manage the new tax.

The bill now heads to the House of Representatives for possible revision. TechCrunch’s sources on Capitol Hill say that broad support in the Senate makes it difficult for House members to oppose the legislation, but it may be modified to increase the threshold for businesses who have to collect online taxes, from $1M in revenue to $10M

This is one of those laws that affects almost everyone directly. I’m kinda surprised there’s not more of an uproar.

Update 2: House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte just released a statement (The Internet Sales Tax bill most likely will go through the Judiciary Subcommittee, so his views are very influential):

“I do not believe the Marketplace Fairness Act is sufficiently simplified yet. While it attempts to make tax collection simpler, it still has a long way to go. There is still not uniformity on definitions and tax rates, so businesses would still be forced to wade through potentially hundreds of tax rates and a host of different tax codes and definitions.… I am open to considering legislation concerning this topic but these issues, along with others, would certainly have to be addressed. The Committee will also look at alternatives that could enable states to collect sales tax revenues without opening the door to aggressive state action against out-of-state companies.”

Where are we headed, is this is what human evolution looks like?

A culture more concerned with alchemy, superstition, witchcraft, and less focused on objective analysis and practical solutions.

Are we to hate beyond our ability to love, to deem our neighbor's value to society based on our personal inability to comprehend that society must integrate, must fuse, must realize that success in any endeavor requires cooperation...even sometimes a tiny bit of respect.
