    Trickle down economics has never worked...and the Republicans know it as well. Its just a way of handing more money to the wealthiest corporations without the people of America crying out too much.
    socialism hasn't worked either and taxing the rich while spending more and more money to buy the votes of the middle and lower classes is really stupid

    punishing the rich doesn't make the poor more able to compete in a modern economic system

    addicting people to government provided dependency doesn't make them prosperous either-in fact it prevents them from competing which is why people like Buffett support such nonsense
    You understand that trickle down and socialism are mutually exclusive?

    I understand that socialism and income redistribution end up destroying countries by creating massive amounts of entitlement addicted slugs who are kept addicted by those who gain power from their votes.

    Not envy at all. I just find it rather ironic how concerned you are about the wealthy in this country. The point being.....they will do just fine without more government handouts. Oh...and BTW....don't worry....they'll still be able to buy their caviar and truffles....(it was just a joke).

    In other words, no.. you think trickle down is only capitalism, all else is socialism..

    Redistribution of wealth isn't all progressive, it can be regressive as well

    Yea.. the wealthy has had their share of handouts and bailouts, so wtf.. why shouldn't they pay a little more in taxes, holding them up financially shouldn't be just my responsibility

    I am concerned about freedom and the attempts by the dems to restrict that.

    do you really believe that the majority of people in the top 2% are ones who received bailouts? and you are aware of the fact that they right now pay far more in taxes than their share of the national income
