    Lol....Progressive " solutions " are so one dimensional and silly. Kept simple so their core constituency can easily understand the nonsensical rhetoric.

    In the interest of " fairness " the Government is the final arbiter of who's deserving and who deserves to be targeted.

    Liberals would arbitrarily raise the minimum wage and raise cost on bussinesses in order to increase economic growth in at economy they don't understand.


    Its a contradiction. Obama pretends to understand how our economy functions and implements policies to increase " aggregate demand " and help the free market grow.

    But he's never given credibility to Free market solutions because at his core he opposes them No wonder his Green Jobs iniative was such a friken disaster.

    Its no wonder his stimulus only stimulated more debt.


    In the end doesn't care about improving our economy. His State of the Union proves that.

    He cares about creating division where none exist for the purpose of perpetuating his progressive agenda.

    And how much have thug unions spent on Democrat campaigns over the decades. . . . without the consent of the dues payers I might add?

    Yah, when its working for the Democrats they keep their yaps shut.
    But when some Republican donors come along they all start to snivel like beee-atches.

    Why shouldn't people be swayed by political ads?

    The Koch brothers aren't looking to take away any of my rights that I'm aware of. What rights of yours are they looking to take away or even impede?

    Are you upset with guys like Soros and the Koch brothers funding elections and buying our politicians?

    That's funny, because I feel the same way.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Of course his product appealed to more people. That's how he won the election. And the big money enabled him to get all those previously disinterested people who never voted to go out and cast a vote for history! Woo!

If politicians on the right and those who support them left it to the media to get their message across, conservative politicians would be at a distinct disadvantage.

    As for sending jobs overseas, it's likely the policies of those the Koch brothers oppose that are shipping jobs overseas - more conservatives, friendlier to business, would keep jobs at home.
    I think there is a bit of a difference between speaking out on the candidate/issue you support and throwing nearly a billion dollars to influence elections. Our 'democracy' is becoming more and more of a joke, everyday.
