    Statuesque? It's large and elegant?

    and, what changes in the real world when the self described conservatives get into power?

    You mean problems like business investment, job creation and wealth creation? I thank them as well. We live in the wealthiest country in the world thanks to them.

    I think you'd have a hard time showing that the US is the wealthiest country, at least on a per capita basis, or that the wealth we do have is due to having it concentrated in only a few hands.

    I actually expected better from you but as usual I am always disappointed by liberal rhetoric. You have no idea who anyone here is or what each of us has accomplished. We all are responsible for ourselves and if you didn't achieve the status you wanted don't blame someone else for it, blame yourself. The opportunity was there and for whatever reason you didn't achieve the desired results.

    I inherited nothing, I expected nothing from someone else other than the opportunity to succeed and I did that, succeed. Why haven't you generated what you wanted to achieve. What did any rich person or the top 1% do to prevent you from grabbing a bigger share of the growing pie. Neither you or any other liberal will ever answer that question. You look in the mirror every day at the person responsible for the results generated and because you didn't do what you had hoped for it is ok to penalize or demonize those of us who did.

    Keep spouting the class warfare rhetoric and ignoring individual responsibility, it is typical liberalism

    So now you are an expert on society and what people do to others? What makes you that expert? Do you know everyone else's situation or economic status, education, profit demand? You seem to believe that everyone else is the cause of you not achieving what you wanted. Man up for a change.

    Because the debate is about how to have an economic system that is merit based. If you don't care about what other workers earn, then there is no point in involving yourself in debate about inequality.

    Ah, but they have them here at DP. It's where people go to whine and cry about the big bad meanies on the threads.

    I don't think it would be that hard but I'm too lazy to play the internet quote game. If you disagree then you disagree. It is OK with me. But I will correct you. I didn't say that the concentration of wealth is the cause of our national wealth. I said that the people who own the concentrated wealth are the cause of it. Find me a wealthy country without concentrated wealth.

When he made that promise the deficit was 400 plus billion so cutting a 400 billion dollar deficit would make that 200 billion not a half a trillion dollars as he has done.
    Absolutely.

    Do you think there's a way to make the voters ignore the ads that feed them half truths and outright lies while appealing to emotions?
