    Exactly why I'm promoting Cruz .


    She was 3rd in Iowa in 2008.
    she's up by 59 points right now .
    I was just having a conversation with my housemate. A lot of that has to be because Hillary Clinton is a name people haveheard before.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    Yeah, and remember that, as I recall back in 06, Obama was like 6th or 8th in polling? Shows how much these polls can be trusted...

    He has said he's for raising taxes, and he refuses to say by how much and on whom.

    I agree with that. It's just that some people don't consider the consequences of their actions. The market is like water, you can't just make it go away, if you restrain it in one place, it'll force it's way somewhere else. Raise the MW too high, jobs get cut that aren't worth that much money.

    You're right that the consuming public shares this responsibility. I never shop at Walmart and avoid Chinese made goods. We can all do more by buying less, buying local, buying union made and avoiding buying from the worst exploiters.
    I shop at whoever gives me the most for my money, which many times is Walmart, sometimes not. Unions artificially raise prices, so just shopping for the best price helps filter those goods out.

    Which is precisely the kind of thing that allowed capitalism to be beneficial all the way down, real trickle down, and the creation of a strong middle class. Deregulation that started in earnest under Reagan has created a reversal of that, and given rise to crony capitalism.

    I don't speculate on what politicians say, justa. Only they know what's in their minds. Some day he will have to articulate his plan for raising taxes.

    You are a race baiter because you all the he sudden think you are on the left... Why did I even think you might once make sense. Also... Instead of playing a whiny victim why don't you take charge of your life and move if you don't like where you are at so much? You know... Personal responsibility and all. Nevermind ... Perhaps you don't know.

    You are trying to make it sound like they are both doing the same thing, which is misleading and untrue. Nobody has ever spent like Obama, and Reagan was the only President to effectively cut government discretionary spending. Since Reagan though, spending has been insane. But Obama is just off the charts. But go ahead and post some misleading information on what a miser Obama is.

    That's irony. Could you restate that so it makes sense?

    This thread is not about the posters... do you have anything coherent and on topic to say that isn't flaming other posters?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
