    None of them give a ****. It's all just pandering to get more votes. The middle class makes up the largest voting demographic of the US, so of course the candidates are going to say they care about them. Neither Romney, nor Obama understand the middle class, because neither of them are middle class, and I'm willing to bet the same is true of those in Congress, and the Senate.

    What advicates of Communism don't want us to know is that the equality that's gained isone that assures that everyone will be equal, alright...equally miserable.

And I think you could search long and hard and not find a more compassionate and giving human being than Mitt Romney. No one is talking about abandoning those who are unable to do for themselves. But, neither does the Democrat party promise wealth to those you champion in your post. In fact, the Dems' policies will become a major problem for those middle class citizens once the reality of Obama's programs becomes known to all.
    "allowing" is the correct term. That is not putting impediments in the way. Allowing is not controlling. BIG difference.

    Democrats don't promise wealth to anybody regardless of who I champion. Republicans also don't promise wealth to anybody, but they are somehow infatuated with the notion that the gardener on the gated estate actually wants to have his own gated estate, that everyone craves riches, when in fact only a minority of people crave riches - the majority crave "wealth" - love, honour, respect, family - you know stuff that doesn't carry a price tag.

    I totally disagree with your statement that the middle class will have problems with Obamas programs.

    And, to conclude your post, you once again reveal your dyed-in-the-wool liberalism by assuming the Right can or does "require" any such non-sensical thing as requiring the rich to remain rich.
    I was responding to an earlier post which stated exactly that.



    Your notions are faulty.
    Really? well thank you for the feedback, but I think I'll keep them.

    Rich is a relative term, the beauty of the US, is that average people can attain a level of wealth and financial security that only the rich have in other countries.
    Owning a home, sending you children to college, retiring comfortably, all attainable. There is no need to be a CEO, just a worker bee.
    Plan and live within your means, grow your savings with your income.
    In addition to these things, is freedom, freedom to decide where you live, work, what education you need, ect.
    The big Brother left , assumes the middle class is not smart enough to make those decisions, I say they are.

    For an intelligent person to actually believe such nonsense is frightening. Do a comparison between what Romney has done in his past suggesting he would be disloyal to the USa or it's citizens. Then do the same thing for Obama's past.

    Maybe that will help clear things up for you.

    Oh, and please don't forget Obama's "Global Poverty Act" which didn't get as far through Congress as Sen. Obama intended it to. It's a bill which would have levied a new tax on Americans for the expressed purpose of giving it to poor third world nations. The plan was to route the tax money through the crime-splashed fingers of the United Nations, utimately spilling into the hands of rulers who might keep some or all of Obama's largesse at your expense.

    What are you talking about? What fair chance did communism promise? I seems you are implying that the son is guilty for the sins of the father.
    considering that there are only four countries left that can be called communist (with china making all kinds of capitalist reforms) I think the world as a whole has recognized its failures and fallacies.

    I totally agree with your summary.


    who is this big brother left? what policies do they have that indicate that the middle class is not smart enough to make appropriate financial decisions?

    I find it interesting how many toss the word communisn around like it is truly a threat to our American society.....and what's even more interesting is the people that buy into this theory.
