    We tax things we want less of. Maybe you would rather we just made those things illegal. I would gladly support a law forbidding corporations from moving overseas and selling here. Or maybe we should just forbid layoffs. That is done in other countries.

    Yeah, if you live your life by rhetoric and slogan, sure I can see how you might view it that way. But it's more like restrain and limit the beast. Unless you're libertarian, then it's choke the sucker til it dies and then light fire to the corpse. Oh and don't forget to salt the earth when finished.

    You're confusing libertarianism with anarchism.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    I should have put a smilie after that. The bit about libertarians was tongue in cheek.

    Um, no, I read on a daily basis a lot of cons going for the starvation. There are few, if any, moderate GOP's remaining......and those that exist don't dare to expose their views.

    It's relativity in action. What you see is determined by the platform you are standing on.

To get us back to 146.3 million working Americans the debt was increased from 10.6 trillion to 17.6 trillion and you call that good news? You call it good news when we still have 7.5 million long term part time workers who want full time jobs? It is amazing what you people will buy and the question is why? What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty because it certainly isn't results.

    Again, do you believe there is no such thing as corporate inertia?
    The govt. sets the tone and the policies which is why Obama is a failure. You just don't seem to get it but will one day. I grew up as did millions of others. Not enough yet to prevent an incompetent from getting elected and re-elected although 4 million came to their senses. Hopefully one day you will too.

    From your link


    Do you really believe that 143 is greater that 357?
    No, I want Obama/Biden fired and incentive given to companies to stay in this country, not a massive welfare socialist state like Europe.
