    During Obama's 4 years, the elite and rich have become even wealthier and the poor have been rammed further into their graves

    As for the great big American Middle class - well they have seen much of their wealth and security evaporate.

    Under Obama, Wealth has been re-distributed alright - you betcha!

    The poll results do not reflect the opinion that it is a bad thing. I voted yes but I believe it is a good thing to redistribute the wealth because 2 per cent of the population controls 98 per cent og the wealth. I think that is wrong, my friend.

    Oh yeah? I haven't received one drop of it yet. Trickle down is remenicent of the dark ages when the lords of the manor would give grease dripping to the peasant serfs during the peasant/serff festivals

    Buying a highway which benefits the general public can be called an investment in infrastructure, just like canals, dams, bridges, and irrigation projects. Spending the money on useless projects like digging a hole and then filling it up again, or hiring more EPA administrators to think up more useless rules, is simply a waste of the money (

    Republicans recognize the need for more tax revenues, but they also recognize that raising tax rates is not the way to do that. The correct way to raise tax revenues is to get out of the way of the job creators and let people go back to work. Reagan cut tax rates and closed some loopholes, and tax revenues doubled during his term in office. (On the downside, he had a Dem congress that spent $1.65 for every new dollar that came in. We need a fiscally responsible (== Republican) congress also.)

    Before he passed away, my father told me a story about when he was a schoolboy. The schools were holding fundraisers, gathering up nickels and dimes, in order to free the Christian slaves in the Sudan. The idea was, they'd take this money into Africa and buy as many slaves as they could and set them free. They discontinued this program in short order when they discovered that the number of slave raids and slaves taken had more than tripled almost overnight-- it turns out the slavers liked good American money.

    Read in the news recently that some townships are considering 'solving' the housing crisis through eminent domain: people in underwater houses would apply for assistance, and the government would use eminent domain to seize the property from the bank-- at current market value-- and sell it back to the homeowner at a reduced rate. I'll leave it to your imagination what this is going to do to the housing market if it ever actually happens.

    The problem with 'social justice' is that it is applying moral principles to amoral systems. The economy isn't a social institution, it's the jungle and the law of the jungle can not be denied; panthers that refuse to eat bunny rabbits starve.



    Sure. Hell, I've seen studies that say every dollar we put in the public schools is worth three dollars of tax revenue. I'm not opposed to investing in infrastructure and education and human services-- I'm just opposed to the typically idiotic left-wing way of screwing those things up.
    Excellent post! I remember that situation in the Sudan, and your analogy is right on target! Thank you...
