    Good for you...
    Ive only been old enough to vote for only a state election and congressional election...

    I respond to facts not opinions and certainly not the empty rhetoric from this Administration. You see, results matter, not rhetoric. You continue to buy the rhetoric and ignore the results.
    I'm buying the rhetoric?
    Really?
    Are you saying i support this president 100%?

    If you support economic justice you support Marxist communism!
    Yes, apparently the far right thinks our parents, grandparents, and great grandparents were all Marxists for supporting tax rates far more progressive than anything proposed by the Democrats today.

    You just used rhetoric to try to make a point

    You support economic justice? How wonderful! Mankind has been searching for it for thousands of years and the OWS crowd has finally found such a thing!

    Would you kindly share this formula with us?

    On the other hand there's a Democrat mayor of New York, A Democrat governor of New York State, A Democrat President Wall Street has given more money and support to Barrack Obama than to any other Presidential Candidate in history, and the last Wall Street Reform was carried out by the Democrats.

    Perhaps the Tea Party would be a better place to start.

    So let me get this straight... If you speak of social justice or economic justice you are a Marxist?
    I mean ****!
    There are a **** ton of Marxists out there! Man oh man!

    Your knowledge never fails you does it McCarthy?
    I mean, going of your great knowledge of course, then we must of been a Marxist country back in the 40's, 50's, and the 60's then! More redistribution of wealth, more and higher progressive tax, our gov was building industry and infrastructure, i mean that must be MARXIST right!?

    Well its common knowledge that back in the 40's-70's the income tax was higher.

    Do some research....Particularly during the progressive era of the early 20s on, and it is true that some socialist ideals have been ingrained in our system extra constitutionally, however that doesn't make it right, or proper. I'd say when you mature a bit, your public school system education will be broadened to include hopefully true critical thinking.
