    Lower taxes would equate to a freer market if taxes were lowered by the same proportion for everyone, not just a select few. Doing the latter is called corporate welfare or re-distributing wealth.

    But why should anyone have loyalty to America only? Isn't it better to just have loyalty to basic values, like freedom, honesty, fairness?

    There's nothing special about the US.

    So who is buying the products of these companies, if workers don't have enough money to buy food? Of course these companies don't include the dog food and can opener companies, since Republicans have made sure prices remain low enough for the elderly to eat.

Right now, the section with most money is the top 10% and they aren't spending.
    Totally inaccurate. The effect on the market for jobs of lower taxes on corporations depends on the nature of the tax (i. e. lowering excise taxes vs. lowering income taxes).

    Just lowering the income tax rates for businesses does not necessarily translate to more jobs. Businesses operating in their current state typically hire based on the point at which the marginal cost of an additional employee equals that employee's marginal revenue, and no more. The income tax rate doesn't change that point.

    And any excess funds will be invested in areas that yield the greatest return, and that may not necessarily be in expansion in areas that hire more labor.

    The notion of "trickle down" economics is just more propoganda for the dumbed down masses.

    Corporate profits are soaring for GE and other cronies who are backing this dictatorial regime who get special breaks and Obamacare exemptions from this totalitarian regime. When you dont have to pay taxes your profits will soar. Meanwhile small business's who make over 200,000 (gross) are shackeled with more & more dictatorial regulations and taxes that are bankrupting them one by one, thus the high unemployment rate.

    Even if corporations are making more (beside the cronies) which I really doubt, who in there right mind thinks that even higher taxes and even more regulations (we already have the 2nd highest corporate rate in the world) are going to improve things for workers? Get your Damn grubby hands of my damn wallet and stay the hell out of my household you totalitarian Liberals. Face it your idealogy has failed completly.
    Look at the damn economy, Jobs, housing market, cost of energy ect ect.

    The proof is there for us all to see but idealogy (no matter how utterly incoherant) is more important to these Liberals than truth or facts.

    Goverment (Liberal) policy has more to do with the average worker not making more than corporations being greedy, Obama pissed away a Trillon dollar stimulous that created no jobs, the regulations his EPA & other goverment agencies are choking off & bankrupting business. I could go on & on but instead of addressing the issues you throw out an incoherant post accusing me of throwing out rhetoric, so whats the point of trying to explain it to you.

    Quick question. If it was incoherent, then how do you know what I said.
