    Barrack Obama doesn't agree with you.

    Just today he was asking Romney and Congress for leadership as to what to do about the ongoing economic problems.

    His pretending to be president and obvious lack of leadership abilities has worn on the American electorate and Romney will win big.

    Link? This I've got to see.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Right -- as expected, a ridiculous interpretation by you. What Obama was obviously saying is that it's very easy for Romney and republicans to take pot shots at him, but they haven't offered any positive proposals of their own.

    There is a huge pile of just such "positive proposals" sitting in the "not to do pile" controlled by Reid in the senate, bills that have been passed by the house, yet just sit gathering dust awaiting senate "action". Demorats dare not allow these to be voted on in the senate, better to keep saying, as you do, that they simply do not exist. ;-)

    Oh but they have!

    Stop throwing taxpayer money at fly-by-night companies like Solyndra, for example. Stop spending money that you don't have.

    You really haven't heard any of this?

    You have to remember though, the Democratic platform of today is further left from the Democratic platform of 100, 50, or even 25 years ago. Same with the Republican platform. We've all been slowly migrating left while there are those like myself who see that migration and want both parties to return to their original beliefs, focusing on the foundations of this country that made it great.
    Isn't that funny that the same exact percent that agree with Obama on the issues pay absolutely no income tax?

    Just an observation.

    Yes, you've got half the population paying taxes and the other half not paying taxes, with the latter claiming the others don't pay enough.

    There are some, Barrack Obama among them, who figure this is 'social justice'.

    Nearly everyone pays some taxes. You need to be more accurate. You also need to realize more people have dropped below the line because of hard times. It makes a difference.
