    Actually I am in those statistics posted and do look at the picture as it affects me and my family. Too bad others don't do that as well and then they would realize that politicians rely on feelings about others that create the electorate that Gruber was talking about

    When workers do enough to justify higher wages they will get it, if they aren't happy with what they make take their experience and education and move on. Start your own business with that experience and see that what liberals have told you is absolutely false.

You are typical for today's liberals. The central pillar of the left's philosophy is to get the government to tax the rich in order to give you stuff YOU want. Basically, liberals are just thieves that are so lazy and cowardly that they demand the government do their stealing for them.
    That's a childish way to view life. First of all, no services are going to be distributed equally. We all pay for roads, but I don't use them the same amount as my neighbor, nor him to his neighbor. By the way, Papa bull, what is stopping you from using Medicaid? Can you explain that issue in length for me.

    Yes, Papa bull, there are many services that the government provides that I do not get to use or do not directly affect me. I realize this, and yet I am not going to moan, bitch, and whine about it. Most services the government provide have valid and important reasons for existing, regardless of whether or not they benefit me. The system was in place before I was born, and it will be in place after I am gone - same with you. You're a small, insignificant piece in a much larger, more important system; and you can kick, scream, and bitch as much as you want, but this society is bigger than just you or I.

    The levels of such are getting worse. Also, its NJ, this is an state of scum and liars. I wouldn't be surprised of landlords renting the property are counted as "owners".

    There is a reason NJ is the most moved OUT of state in the entire Republic.

    And I again I say, vote third party. You say you only want to support one that has roots, that has local candidates, as well as national candidates.

    How can a movement with little to no mainstream appeal, garner enough of a following, to produce local candidates?

    I'm not asking you to believe the third party candidate you vote for is going to win. Only that you vote for them...enough people vote for someone, or a particular party...that person, and by extension, their party, WILL become news. You've gotta reach people through their TVs.


    Oh sure, that's throwing your vote away, right? What difference does it make, if there is no effective change if either of the mainstream candidates get in office? Honestly. Do you think the last several years under Romney would have been even a LITTLE bit different? Keep dreaming.

    actually it is the adult way of looking at it. the childish way of looking at it is "it's now fair that he has more than me".
    what is stopping him from using Medicaid? he works for a living. he has improved himself and earns enough money that he doesn't qualify compared to others who working at walmart is good enough for them. yet complain they don't make enough but then don't want to do anything to improve themselves to make them more valuable.

    Yes, Papa bull, there are many services that the government provides that I do not get to use or do not directly affect me.

    still not justification for wealth redistribution.

    lol if you don't like getting paid what you get paid do something to improve it.
    that is what all those evil rich people did.
    It was rich people that crashed the market. It was rich people that committed fraud, and passed off toxic mortgages off as USDA prime securities, which is what REALLY caused things to go down.

    Rich republicans are every bit as responsible.
