    I would just like to interject and say that the right-wingers who are currently in power mainly want to try to stop Obama from winning, not do what is good for our country (or even what they say would be best for our country. I think any honest conservative would be seriously questioning why their congressman/woman is putting politics ahead of country, if their congressperson was in this group.

    I can tell the truth even if it pisses off millions of losers, slackers, failures and others who are a drag on society who unfortunately tend to vote against winners
    You are not helping.

    The reason I'm a conservative is not because I think the poor deserve to be poor, but because class warfare will not make the conditions for the average american any better. Fact is, the rich are the ones paying most of the taxes, it will not help to push them out of the country.

    many of my thousands of posts have stated that. plucking the golden goose only makes it fly off while the pluckers are left to starve.

    I don't try to convince the brainwashed and the envious. as a wise man once noted, if someone will not serve as a good role model, we might as well make a horrible example out of them. the anti rich nonsense is the product of a plantation mentality coming from those who have become addicted to sucking the public tit. The best thing to do is to napalm the addicted addled BS they spew

    1) because getting rid of Obama is right for this country

    2) because we don't want Obama putting 2 more Kagans on the USSC

    3) because raising taxes only on the rich will increase the deficit by encouraging the dems to spend more and by convincing the tax consumers that deficit reduction is not something they need to worry about nor pay for

    Let me expand upon that. Because he is absolutely right.

    If you want to increase tax revenue, everyone has to pay more in taxes.

    Brainwashed in that the new code word or the Cain word, Cain seems to think that many people have been brainwashed just like you do. Do you have a self image problem are you afraid that people don't envy you. Plantation mentality could you explain that I found two definitions

    1- Plantation mentality is a term some people use to describe ways in which they feel some black people hold themselves back socially and economically, as though they still believe that they are still down on the plantation. Here, even though the black people are no longer living in slavery times, they expect to be taken care of as if they were.

    or

    2-Why should we allow for our "overseers and owners" (middle and upper management) to dictate our destiny?" Because people have been taught to believe that their only destiny in life is to obey the authority figures, go to school, graduate, grow up and work. The only time you can ever enjoy life (If you have the money) is when you are old and with low energy. "Aren't we free to leave and pursue other opportunities." Yes, we are. The problem is the majority of people don't believe there are other ways of living due to their conditioning. So they continue to work like slaves. There's another name for this mindset. It's called 'hive mentality.

    I have asked you before and you never replied are you engaged in stealing from the poor and elderly, some people are born with an entitlement mentality and when they can not get what they think they deserve by working for it they turn parasitic and steal from others by getting involved in activities such as insider trading, speculating, ect
