“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself.
Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” ― George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman
There is nothing to be proud of in the Obama tax record on tax increases.
The time is now to change. We need to let the Bush/Obama tax cuts expire across the board.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
I think you should learn about the two ideas as evidenced by the following statement and this one..Originally Posted by zeusomally
No, that is the argument for taxes made by those like yourself.And, for the reasons that collective government has aided them in this regard, business leaders have a moral obligation to operate in the best interests of the society at large-not merely their own short-term economic interests. That's not Marxism, that's just common sense.

If Obama is saying the taxes need to be raised in order to fund road repairs, then maybe we should just let the roads fall apart. It's just plain wrong to increase taxes.
This is the transcript of what Obama actually said. He is exactly right ... America is strong because we have been a mixed economy.
Fox knows what he is saying and in your mind ... you all know he is exactly correct and that Mitt Romney would agree with this. The alchemists at Fox infotainment were just playing the indoctrinated citizens again!"There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me -- because they want to give something back. They know they didn't -- look, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. You didn't get there on your own. I'm always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smartpeople out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there. If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business -- you didn't build it on your own.The Internet didn't get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together."
