    Which double-sucks because they're sending the money home to Mexico.

    Therefore, the blue dogs and moderates get to go around doing stupid things at light speed while progressives and conservatives alike scream at the wall and hang from a chandelier.

    We're on a highway to hell... happily riding in a breadbasket!


    I wish we had a parliamentary system, then we wouldn't have to be stuck with two lousy parties.

    We could have lots and lots of lousy parties like they have in France.
    The Progressives? Progressive Liberals is the biggest oxymoron in the history of man-kind. Libbos, especially the progressive sort have nothing to gain from a prosperous free enterprise economy.

    Yes we do. Are you crazy?
    We want the economy to prosper. We want there to be jobs, technological progress, science, education, etc.
    We gain from a prosperous economy.
    But we want sustainable prosperity. That means an economy that is not only prosperous today, but tomorrow!

    Yeah, right! Stop, trying to be a comic, dude!

    Fewer poor people is the worst thing that could happen to the Libbos.

    You might want it to prosper, but only to a certain point. You sure as hell don't want any self-made millionares.

    I can find a 50% number, but I know it's nominal which more or less is about as effective as throwing regular water at a vampire.

    Here is the discrepancy: say there are x amount of total firms employing within the US; i would be perfectly willing to accept that 98% of the aggregate are smaller scaled businesses.

    However, the remaining 2% do not earn 2% (or even anything remotely close) to the the real GDP.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    As I said on another thread, you know that "Progressives" are what American Marxists and Communists call themselves, right?

    Oh, I get what you're saying now. So where were you going with that? Small businesses are still the cornerstone of our economy, amirite?

    Correct. Gains in small business productivity have quite the positive effect on standard of living.
