    No, we cannot decide on economic issues because you don't know the finances of other people and therein lies the problems with liberals. Regardless of how smart you think you are you have no concept of the monthly expenses of someone else and what they need to live on. There are about 6 million Americans out of a labor force of 156 million that make the Federal minimum wage and you have never even done any research as to who those people are. Figure it out and then find out what Wal-Mart actually pays their workers. There is no question that the liberal elite play on the stupidity of their base.

    Liberalism is based in emotional feeling, whereas Conservatism is based in objective fact...Sorry for you that you can't see that.
    J, the only one showing emotion is you. I might link something as inaccurate as the American Thinker or The Weekly Standard, but they are appealing to emotion and not logic. Your stereotypical response is not reason based. Not at all.

    Jobs have been increasing here under liberals, and there is no reason to believe government will do anything that will help or hurt jobs. In fact, as I've told you before, the only way government can do that is to hire people, thus growing government.

    Sure we can. And we have before as well. And paying more would actually help the economy, giving people more money to spend, far more than cutting taxes would achieve. And I know what Walmart pays BTW.

    Sorry to jump in here, Boo, but the only one showing emotion really is you because you judge everyone else by your own standards having no concept of someone else's living expenses or what is a fair wage for others. You are the one buying the liberal spin and ignoring the actual reality. What is it about liberalism that creates people like you who can never admit when they are wrong? Tell me what qualifies you to determine what is a fair wage for someone else?

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    And the offset in higher prices is what? Giving people more money to spend is the liberal phrase, conservatives say people have the right to earn more money. When wages go up so do costs. The problem seems to be that you don't hold the Federal Govt. to the same standards that you hold businesses. What you will never understand is that there never will be enough money to fund the liberal spending appetite because liberals always claim to be spending in the name of compassion yet never getting compassionate results unless dependence is a compassionate result. Why is it that the govt. never cuts spending and always needs the money more than the private sector?

    I haven't done that. I suggested we use the standard of what people were paid in the past adjusted for inflation. That's an objective standard. And one being tossed around by some on both sides. Not an emotional one.

    If you say so, but note you still haven't answered any point objectively.

    Since you don't know what the expenses are of others why use past standards as most of those people in the past have moved on into upper income brackets. we have a new class of minimum wage workers every year something you don't seem to understand. Objective is something you don't understand because you never will understand the finances of someone else.
