    That was a statement not a question.

    And when have you ever cared about the topic?

Nor do I ever see a response to the question raised, how will raising taxes during these economic times put 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans back to work full time. As was pointed out but of course you ignored, Clinton didn't inherit a recession but Clinton did give us a GOP Congress.

    "Your" President now wants to raise taxes with high unemployment as symbolism to anyone who is even considering showing initiative, taking risk that it just isn't worth it under this Administration.
    Sorry, but you have. And once again, no one has claimed rasing taxes will put people to work. The claim is that cutting them won't. Leaving them alone won't. That taxes don't relate to jobs any way you slice it.

    Now focus and try to answer what is actually being said.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I think it is you that has been lied to.
    The rich got rich from either generational wealth passed down or they worked their way to a place of wealth (either by leveraging ideas or others ideas).

    But no matter how they achieved their wealth in America, it was done using the power of the society and infrastructure of America. That same infrastructure that the vast majority of Americans paid for to enable that 2% to obtain their vast resources.

    So all of the rich, every single one of them, got rich with the help of us all. THEY DID NOT DO IT ALONE.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    I have tried to focus but the results get in the way of the liberal rhetoric, sorry, but those results show liberalism to be a failure. Your claim that raising taxes or cutting them doesn't have an effect on personal habits is ludicrous.

    Sorry, but that doesn't cut it. You have not even looked at the results. I've given you the results of studies, and you apparently haven't even looked at it. You keep bouncing around, repeating nonsensically phrases you've learned, no matter how poorly they match the conversation or the facts.

    If there is an error in my reasoning, I am all ears. Or are you going to try to troll your way out of this as Conservative is doing?

    Bullcrap it was. Look, I realize that libertarian/conservatives stick up for one another. Your loyalty to each other is unquestioned. All I ask is that you show the same loyalty to this thing called TRUTH. Because in your camp, it's sorely lacking. Posts in this thread are further evidence of this.

    You just don't get it do you. You think you can bait me into some petty flame-fest with your continued trolling. What those of us watching your behavior realize is that your arguments have NOTHING. Why do you troll? Who knows, but it sure as hell isn't to direct us toward the truth, something you seem to be highly allergic to. Oh, and you haven't answered my question, and oh, I don't except you to, because oh, I don't think you can.

    Stay out of this. I wasn't talking to you. Unless, of course, you want to engage in some actual dialogue.
