    There is no doubt about it. If the right wing corporatists combine with the anti-government crowd - its going to be very very bad for America unless we an stop this and stop it now.

    Yes, you most certainly do. You live in a country that worships those that carried out the greatest redistribution of wealth in our history and castigates the working class just trying to survive in the post Reagan economy.

    I think where the street Libbos are getting fooled, is that you're not going to hurt billionares with tax hikes. You're going to hurt the folks that are between the earned income credit folks and the billionares with tax hikes; leaving two groups when the dust settles: the billionares with all their money and political clout and all us poor folks.
    So you are still waiting to be trickled on? I discovered that was a crock 30 years ago, but you keep waiting if it suits you.

    Do you even understand what trickle down economics is?

    I'm in the trucking business. When I needed a tire replaced, or fixed, I would call a guy that has his own tire service business and pay him $80 a wheel to take care of it, for me. Since The Messiah killed the oilfield, I have to do my own tire work, because I can't afford to pay that tire man to do it for me. That's $80 he doesn't have in his pocket, anymore.

    One of my trailers blew an airbag last week. A few years ago, I would have sent my driver to the shop and paid $200 in labor to get it fixed; that's trickle down economics. Now, I have to keep that $200 in my pocket and fix it myself.

    Before The Messiah killed the oilfield, the oil companies had to call on me to haul their equipment, because they're in the oil business, not the trucking business. When they called me, I got paid. I had to pay drivers to drive the trucks and I paid them. That's trickle down economics.

    I think that you garden variety Libbos are just incapable of, "getting it".

    What do you do for a living? Do you even have a job??

    Let me try one more time. YOU'RE WRONG. Read the link. The top ten donors or "heavy hitters" supplied billions to both parties, but tilted democrat in ALL the top ten entities except TWO, which tilted evenly to both sides. The majority of the top ten were not just tilting a little bit towards the democrats, they were tilting A LOT. It figures. The moral and political agenda of a democrat uses far more governmental interventionist powers than the republican. And big business or a big union LOVES an interventionist central government.

    Actually, I made a typo. But luckily enough for me, my typo reveals a trait of ignorance on your part. I meant to say, "you should really read the Road to Serfdom." Unfortunately, you've never heard (and therefore never read or anything about) the Road to Serfdom, one of the most famous works by one of the most famous (and Nobel laureate) economists, Friedrich Hayek. Hayek, I can only imagined, possessed far different from your own. Being that you continue to battle the general economic foundation of your political opponents, you haven't the slightest idea where it originated and/or what it even means.

    I've read Keyne's General Theory. Hopefully you're a prepared enough leftist who is actually read the original work concerning the foundation of leftist (pro-government interventionist) economics. If you haven't read either book, you're just a hollow man regurgitating the statements and opinions of others.
