    LOL. Your rejection means nothing. The form of government is intended to make this method of slowing down government very possible. It is essential when the tyrant rules against the will of the people.

    Even if Paul doesn't run as an independent, he will get significant write-in votes. Also Gary Johnson, the former New Mexico governor, is considering running for the Libertarian Party nominee.

    Good for you, as is mine but then again I saw the Democrats take over Congress, converted all my stocks into cash and then got back in after they bottomed out the market. Did real well under Bush up until 2008 when Democrats put together the 2009 budget and economic legislation or lack of it. Works every time. Worked also when the Republicans took control of Congress in 1994, 2003, and 2011.

    Sure glad to see you have no problem with corporation profits and those evil rich people.

    They tinker around with these stats in DC to the point where no one is telling the truth any more. I am disappointed in the lies.

    People with low wages don't buy that much
    According to recent population results and polls that's a lot of people.

    If America stays at it's current pace business won't have to worry about what they spend , they will start worrying about that black ink turning to red ink.
    Then they will worry about how to save their company.

    So let's see if I have this right, progressives and liberals have no problem with the stock market going up and companies making record profits? What exactly did Obama do to create that rising stock market and record profits?

    Keep playing that act you are playing

    Correct.

    His policies inspired a bull market. The market turned around shortly after his stimulus went into effect ... you know, the stimulus you said saved/created 3 million jobs; half a million more than he targeted. And it was going strong until the Republican house decided to play "chicken" with the national debt ceiling, causing our credit rating to slip.
