    That's true, but I listed the ones that have the most support from conservatives. I seriously doubt that the others would all of a sudden rise to the top - as for the other party, it's a non-issue. Who is their candidate?

What could be better then President Bush over throwing Sadam and spreading the USA combat forces into another war front , remember Sadam and Bin Laden were not buddies. And now look at the mess ex President Bush created by removing Sadam again remember Iraq and Iran were not friendly. We removed a dictator Sadam who if nothing more could control Iraq keeping it a nation that Bin Laden and the Al Quida were not welcome in and a Sadam in power controlled Iranian influence in Iraq.

    Did you say were did I dream it up, I say wake up and take a look at our economy and then tell me exactly what the two wars accomplished that made America a safer and more prosperious nation

    Re: ABC's "20/20 - Lessons from Billionaires: Tax ME to create jobs IN AMERICA!"

    Kinda confused here, Buffet is in court fighting his tax bills from as long as 10years ago, claiming that he should have paid less, and I'm sure with his wealth .. he has the most talented and expensive team of tax lawyers arguing his case for him.


    Then you say that if they raise his tax rates to an even higher percentage, he is suddenly going to turn subservient and and just start paying his “fair” share ??? I guess you mean to say .. what Buffett and his team of tax lawyers feel his fair share should be. Not you, I, or the government but what “he “ feels is fair.



    -chuckles- it funny how the hated rich can suddenly become the hero of the liberal party, just by making a public statement, saying he agrees with their talking point … while actions clearly state that he has no interest in paying "his fair share" until his high priced lawyers and accountants tell him this is as low as we can get your tax burden. But then with all the tax cheats in this administration this is really nothing new.

    You mean the Koch bros.?

    Some will advocate for the interests of the country.

    Some will advocate for their own interests.

    I see so only the billionaires that agree with the liberal point of view are right .. . okay .. got it ..

    So the Koch bros. who pay their taxes are wrong .. VS those that fight it out in court for 10 years have it right .. yep I have a much clearer view of liberal thinking now
