    that is another hall of fame of the stupid comments. Someone just said those who can pay more (I believe everyone can pay more btw-poor people don't need computers etc if they clamor for more government services) should pay more which is clearly a From each according to their ability

    deny it if you want

    how is Hannity misinforming his viewers --that makes no sense

    this nonsense of telling the vast majority of voters only the rich need to pay more will never cause the majority to realize that the increased spending has to end
    Bush borrowed $500 billion from China so he could give a tax cut to the wealthy.

    You asked where have we heard that before -- I answered, Hannity says it all the time...

    Do you deny that Hannity says it all the time when trying to reinforce false beliefs about Dem policy and socialism?

    how is Hannity misinforming his viewers --that makes no sense
    Since you asked:

    1) Straw Man fallacy (climate, Dem policy)
    2) Cherry-picking (health care reform, stimulus bill, partisan attacks on Dems)
    3) Red Herring (Obama's middle name, faith)
    4) False Dilemma (GOP vs Dems)
    5) Guilt by association (Dems)

    It's 1 hour of GOP propaganda every night, or, as Fox likes to call them, News-based opinion shows.

    can you prove the cause and effect?

    I think you are making that up and I think your envy of the rich is pathetic

    I don't listen to Hannity but I know that what I said was accurate

    Speaking of propaganda have you apologized for lying about claiming that dropouts (I guess that hits hard) vote more for dems?

    is something not unfair if it only screws 3% of the population (even if its over 40% of the income tax base)?

    Based on this argument, please answer the following question simply by replying yes or no:

    "Do tax cuts pay for themselves?"

    It really isn't about the rich even though the rich clearly pay far more than they should to a government that is far bigger than it should be--its about the fact that far too many people have representation without taxation
    Next question: "What new body/agency of government has President Obama initiated that is active right now?"

    In your opinion, what constitutes "bigger government"? I'm asking because I hear this phrase, "bigger government," all the time now but I'm having a hard time isolating exactly what Republicans/Conservatives mean when they say it. Is it identified as a new branch of government, additional government employees, broader powers of a specific government agency or the larger amount of money the government spends overall? And how big or small should government be?

    Please, define "bigger government" for us.

    So long as the Democrats lose control of the House and Senate in November, and then they can restore equal protection under the tax laws to everyone.

    Getting the Democrats away from the flight controls is the important thing. They can go back to doing what they do best, blowing up the autopilot.

    what exactly do you consider to be 'equal protection'?
