    How exactly is a president that starts a "preemptive" war, fundamentally changing our two century old philosophy of waging war, a moderate? Please... let's see if your "evidence" reaches the bar I've set. Every single person I've listed has been knee deep in the neocon machine for decades. It's public record. It's fact. They have all signed on to a sweeping, revolutionary (their words) manifesto calling for a PAX americana at all costs.

    Please... show me his moderate side... in your opinion.
    I have nowhere called GWB a moderate. That's a topic that does not interest me. I challenged your list of alleged "neocon" members of GWB's administration. You thereby betrayed your ignorance of the meaning of neoconservatism. Some on your list could be called neocons, some not.

    If we must tax the citizens let's apportion the costs to the states and let the state's decide how to collect the tax. While we are at it let's abolish the Senate or return its control to the States.

    So, you like a regressive system?

    So, you want to continue to run high deficits and add to the debt?

    No, I'd also cut spending. Besides, as seen in the past...lowering rates raises revenue by increasing receipts.

    When you compare federal receipts to GDP, get back to me. Then, we can have a real discussion.

    I survived. I thrived.

    Not everyone is so fortunate.
    What college did you go to!? I would love that school! Cuz 95% of my professors to share **** when they talk about their political affiliation or lecture!

    Tax revenue goes up when the rate is lowered. This has been proven true over and over in our history. When you can refute that, get back to me.

    Real Revenues per capita grew less during the period 1980-1988 (19 percent) than revenue growth in the period 1972-1980 (24 percent) and much less than Clinton's time in office.
