WE do NOT live on this planet alone. WE MUST interact & depend on each other, not just oneself.
WE must consider those that make our medicines, automobiles, refine oil, raise chickens, make shoes, lay bricks, garden etc etc. Especially since NOT one of us can perform all of those functions and more.
Although Idealism is not realistic, voting for Idealism can be pragmatic. Your Marxism is showing. Possibly you are even an Anarchist.
What is in the country's best interest? Does Haliburton care about the country's best interest? The company only seems to care about money it can make off war. What about the company's controlling private prisons? They want non-violent people arrested for drugs so they can make money. Is that good for America? What about the telecoms who pay politicians off so they can price gouge Americans? I could go on, but you get the picture. Corporations are voting the bottom line with little regard for America. Why should the SMART people be any different?

Farmers will vote for what is best for them, not America. Same with the auto companies. Same with pharma. Same with oil. Same with the Hispanics whose family members are in the U.S. illegally picking your food for cheap(do you want to pay $10 for a tomato).

There will always be fools. I know some people will always vote against their best interests. If those people didn't exist, democracy would be outlawed. We need fools. The problem is that a lot of the Republican base is too foolish. They need to smarten up just a little bit. It would just make things easier.

I'm not a Marxist. I just know the government is going to take my money regardless. Whether the government spends it on $500 toilet seats or food stamps, my money will be wasted. That's a given. That isn't going to change. I don't have to worry about what's going into other carts because I can eat steak and sushi every single day. The average mouth breather can't. If people want to limit their lives with government assistance, why should I care? It isn't driving down what I charge a company per hour for my services. It seems to only be people one step above assistance worried about those on assistance.

The U.S. has the most draconian tax policy on the planet. Even if all the "leeches" came off assistance forever, the draconian tax policy would still be in play. Our money would still be wasted.

Haliburton creates a lot of high paying jobs for Americans.
.
How many farmers do you think there are anymore? One farmer can plant 300 acres of corn in a day now.
.
Why have democrats so completely dumbed down gubment schools? Cuz smart kids would never vote for them.
.
Here's a quote from a VERY PROMINENT democrat who let the truth slip out:
“Ideologies aren't all that important. What's important is psychology.
.
The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That's why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.
.
Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don't have a clue as to political reality.What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.
.
The voter is basically dumb and lazy. The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn't have a clue than there were Republicans.
.
Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you're smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That's why I'm a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”&#8213; James Carville

Nonunion Truck Brokers and Drivers:

Nonunion Truck Brokers and Drivers, workers, consumers, and taxpayers elect Obnoxious President, Vice President, and Governor, Representatives of US the Government, County Commissioners, Township Trustees, Mayors, City Council, School Administrators and Board Members.

That supports Nonunion Truck Brokers and Drivers defying demands of USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

Demanding USA Labor Law, The Constitution, and demands of Natural Law: what Mother Nature, God, or Whatever Power decreed to be the reality of the real world, democracy, capitalism, the US Constitution, and free, fair, and affordable commerce and common sense demands.

Demands Nonunion Truck Brokers and Drivers and every Business Owner and their Stockholders, corporation, farmer, business, outsourcer sweatshop, and nonprofit, tax-exempt, organization and Church; markets the cost in the wholesale and retail price of his or her product and service; of every worker, consumer, and taxpayer's wages (union contract), healthcare, pension, investment and independent business profit.

This enables union Truck Brokers and Drivers, every worker, consumer, and taxpayer to pay healthcare insurance premium or pay healthcare provider. Pay ALL taxes and pay for every product and service they use for life. With money derived from wages, investment profit, and independent business profit.

And holds Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and America’s grandchildren’s children, Government employees, Parents, Teachers, Veterans, Police, Firemen, and Fathers disqualified for affirmative action with white skin, Representatives deny Collective Bargaining Rights accountable.

To fund Illegal drug users and Illegal Immigrants, lottery, casino, and keno losers, Nonunion Truck Brokers and Drivers, unemployed Union workers replaced with nonunion workers, Human Traffickers, waitresses that pander for life for $2.00 per hour, slaves in tax abated enterprise zones, low-income child labor, consumers, and taxpayers, volunteers without wages, and nonunion workers willing to work for fewer wages than they can afford life. That pays with welfare checks, food stamps, housing vouchers, and Medicaid.

Pay income tax, social security tax, and road tax Amish evade paying 10% of their income derived from wages, Ponzi credit certificates, and independent business profit to nonprofit, tax exempt, Amish Church.

Pay for all stimulus packages, tax abatements, tax incentives, tax refunds, tax credit, and tax exemptions.

Fund Nonunion Truck Brokers, consumers, and taxpayers, paying sales tax on the more stock dividends (money) OPEC Nations, Enron Stockholders, Wal-Mart Stockholders, Hillarys, Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders (money marketers) market quarterly in the cost of diesel fuel and gasoline. And In the wholesale and retail price of every product and service Human Beings use for life. And School Boards and Government needs to build, maintain and operate schools, infrastructure, and provide local and national security, and Government services. Vendors collect without compensation. That gets only product or service.

Makes free, fair, and affordable commerce IMPOSSIBLE; Makes funding schools IMPOSSIBLE; Makes balancing every budget IMPOSSIBLE; Makes Union workers, consumers, taxpayers, and Americas grandchildren's children life UNAFFORDABLE; and created Ohio’s $1.35 trillion budget deficit, the $40 trillion social security and the $16 trillion national debt. America’s grandchildren’s children cannot pay Chinese, Foreign and Domestic Investors and Stockholders interest with this debt until they are 18 years old.

No Market for More Natural Gas:

Typical of someone that has no valid point(s) to discuss, change the subject. The topic that you mentioned & that I responded to was people voting. You somehow think that interjecting Haliburton, which as a company is NOT a voting entity that can go to the polling place. No logic there

Move to Bay Village. You don't need a gun walking around out there. Keep a shotgun for home defense. Companies are leaving China for cheaper labor markets. Do you really think they will come back to the U.S.?
The Republican party is the home of racism and intolerance. Why do you think there is all the fuss about gay marriage? It's the home of whites worried about illegal immigrants taking their jobs. Illegal immigrants aren't doing any skilled labor. It's the legal immigrants who are more of a threat to skilled workers. But you can't tell that to mouth breathers.
Europe suffered from white flight to the U.S. and did just fine. People just go where things are going good and where they will have opportunity. That's life.
You ain't paying for none of that food. You don't make enough to pay for it. Stop acting as if you are in a millionaire tax bracket. LOL It's always the people who are a few steps from qualifying for the programs themselves who cry the loudest about paying for the programs. Hilarious.
11 million (or more) illegals are not all doing unskilled labor. Remember that I'm a truck driver, and I see these people driving trucks all the time. I don't know if they live here, but they are working here which does bring down American wages.

This is besides the fact that if American employers can't get Americans to work for the money they offer, they would be forced to offer more to attract workers. They don't have to now because of these illegals. If these illegals were not here and companies were forced to increase their pay rate, then perhaps that might open up more jobs for Americans. And don't be so concerned about whites. The black unemployment rate is nearly twice as high as the national average and yes, many of those jobs are lower wage jobs that the illegals are cutting into. But you know how blacks always vote Democrat which goes against their best interest.

If you pay income tax (which I do) you are paying for these social programs. If you are an American of any income, your country is going into debt because of these social programs which eventually all will have to pay. If you are an American of any income, remember that these politicians are borrowing your Social Security money to pay for them, and that means less for you when you need it.

Again, illegals do unskilled jobs. The engineers and IT guys are here legally. Legal immigrants on Visas are taking skilled jobs. Skilled workers are not endangered by illegals. In fact, the rich(Republicans) actually want illegals here because they know it's not worth paying unskilled laborers living wages. Just pay illegals.

People will be paying for that Iraq cluster f@ck for years. They pay for the bloated military budget of the U.S. They pay for all the people being made unemployable by the prison industrial complex. We will have our money wasted one way or another. That isn't going to change. One of the first things the forefathers of the U.S. did when they got in charge was start taxing people to death. They didn't like it when it was done to them, but they made people bootleggers trying to get tax money. It's been going downhill since day one. If you notice, it's only got worse through the centuries. It hasn't got any better since the 1700s. More take. More waste. Such is the nature of government. Eliminate social programs tomorrow, and they are still going to f@ck you.

If I take money from you, who cares if I shred it or burn it. In either case, I'm wasting it. That's what you don't realize. You are never going to get your money's worth. It's gone.

I don't agree with some of what you have stated but I finally see logical thinking in the post.
In the 1st paragraph, the remark about what Repubs want may be right but can be argued. the rest is spot on.
As far as 'bloated' budgets....of course. Many or most family budgets are just as guilty. Difference is that the family budget for the most part, affects only that family, we all have a right to whine about how our tax dollars are spent which segues to your claim that the forefathers taxing people to death & them not liking it when it was done to them....not quite correct. What was

'done to them' was the taxation without representation for King George making or approving all final taxes & the decisions that prompted them. An example being that many taxes were structured so that certain goods had to be purchased from England as opposed to being made in the colonies because of tax structures & the list of examples could fill a book.
The colonies had limited power about the taxes but the STATES had representatives.
You are also totally correct about liquor taxes being the cause of 'moonshiners/bootleggers' & personally, I think that it has made for a great adventure in Americana. I have found the remnants of stills in the Appalacian Mtns when hiking off of trails & found the stimulation of my imagination wandering down paths of history.
And of course, EVERY 'social program' can be pared along with the military budget.

Why would Republican politicians care about what people pay for wages in this country? They don't care about that because it doesn't buy them one vote. Democrat politicians on the other hand have a huge investment in illegals; most of them believe in the cradle to grave system and will vote Democrat in the future.

I think what you should do is make more friends down south like in Texas or Arizona. Tell THEM that illegals are not taking on skilled jobs such as bricklaying, carpentry, electricians, remodelers. You really think that contractors don't hire and train illegals; that these non-English speaking people can't repair a toilet or snake out a sewer line?

You are correct that taxing and spending has gotten much worse through the years, and it's people like you that are to blame. You know "vote for your self-interest?" If you surrender your dignity, then you've surrendered everything. How do you think we got to the point where half of the people in this country pay no income tax? How do you think we got to the point where half of the people in this country live either partially or entirely on the federal government? Because of people like me????

Keep voting for your own interest while I vote for the best interest for the future of our country. If more people would turn off Dancing With The Stars and start paying attention to politics, you would see how fast they stop wasting money, because the worst enemy of a politician is an educated voter.
