    welcome back!!
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    One of the things we did, was increase the tax rates on the wealthy, just as we need to do now to reduce our war debt. We have Iraq and Afghanistan to pay for and we still haven't finished paying for Vietnam.

    when everyone else catches up to the top one percent than you might have a point about the rich

    one percent of the population is paying 40% of the income tax burden

    No I don't know that actual number in terms of dollars but its safe to say no other 1 percent of the population pays anywhere NEAR that much money.

    In 2007, the top 1% paid $115 billion less in federal income tax than they would have had the Clinton tax rates from a decade earlier still been in effect. That's $115 billion in a single year. Money that was imply handed to the already wealthy free of charge. It was plain old vote-buying Republican welfare-for-the-rich who -- thanks to Bush -- were able to cut in line to feed from the public trough and suck from the public teat. What a disgusting display.
    the idiocy of your post is that it assumes that the clinton tax rates and money was proper. that is something you cannot prove so the rest of your psychobabble fails as well

    Imagine what good (in your mind) could be done if every penny over 200K was confiscated by the government

    I prefer to imagine what good we could promote if government spending was slashed to only paying for constitutional programs and that is a far better way to not stick our children (I should say my child-since he is going to be the target of your soak the rich with a death tax scheme) with massive debt

    I buy that TD is rich and earned it, but you? Not a chance. You disprove such a claim every time you say bull**** like the following..


    Money that was imply handed to the already wealthy free of charge.
    Lol. Still going on with this? No one handed them money by lowering their taxes. Didn't we go over this already?

    All this sort of non-responsive nonsense does is confirm everyone's expectation that you will in fact have no actual response to make. $115 billion worth of welfare-for-the-rich Republican vote-buying and feeding at the public trough. Just to the top !%. Just in 2007.

    Are you even aware of what libertarians think of corporate welfare? I would think not since you just assumed TD actually supported such a thing.
