    No, I didn't skip it. I even took it into account.

    Why do you keep putting such absurd red herrings out there when the issue is so obvious even a caveman, and a liberal, should be able to see it ?
    You hit the nail on the head. Progressive and Democrats want to continue to oppress minorities into a growing voter class dependent on the government handout of cheese - and they continue to not only be successful at it but grow those numbers each and every year using class warfare rhetoric and redistribution as their major vehicles.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Well, if you don't like democracy, there are plenty of non-democracies in the world that you can live in. I believe in dissent as an important part of our political system, but if you don't even believe in our political system, then I can't help you. I always hated people who said "Love it or leave it," (mostly because what they really meant was "agree with the Republicans of leave it), but I do think that if you don't have any respect or attachment to the basics of our political system...well, don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split you.

    If you read the Constitution there are little things like Freedom of Speech, Free Press and Freedom to Assemble. Political involvement is inherent in those things. John Adams believed that the Congress should be a "miniature" of American society. When you only let certain people vote, it looks like a "miniature" of that segment of society.

    You have to have an income of around $100k/year before you start paying out more than you get back in terms of tax benefits.

    That's exactly right. They don't pay those taxes. We pay those taxes, because they are spending our money, to begin with.

    You guys are hilarious. Someone accuses you of keeping people from voting and you get all defensive. Then you list off people you think shouldn't be allowed to vote.
    Care to show us the source of that slogan?

    That's a really stupid argument. That's like saying since I am a federal worker and you pay taxes to the gov you pay my salary and therefore anything I buy is yours.

    No you don't. The earned income credit stops short of 50 grand. Try again.

    I made 430 g's last year and had to pay $7,000 in taxes, because I'm self employed, so don't give us that crap, bro.
