"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
There was more to it than that...Paul Ryan their attacks on govt workers, they lost votes here they lost votes there and it all accumulated.
Lets get one thing straight here ok...to get back to the title of the thread...To say Acorn Stole the elections implies that black people stole the election from Romny by having black voters that werent qualified to vote vote....Blacks are 14% of the population...its ridiculous even if some blacks voted that werent eligible...the WHITE voters that voted for romney that werent eligible and shouldnt have voted more than over compensated for it....they math does not add up...what does add up is the entire republican establishment is blaming their spanking on everything and everyone except the far right teaparty who actually DID lose the election for them...
Think of your country as a franchise, which provides the fundamental infrastructure (including roads, bridges, airports and an FAA so you can move about; military, police, courts and a banking system to protect your property; an FDA/FTC to protect your food, water and drugs; colleges and universities to educate, develop knowledge and create new things) under which you are free to be an entrepreneur, including getting to keep most, but not all, of what your reap. After all, there is a fee to play and the fee goes up with your success.... and, of course, like a franchise, when the fee gets big, you get cocky and forget from whence you came.
I.E. if the top 1% takes home 20% of the income, they "should" pay 20% of the taxes, by your standard?
Or do you actually mean 1% of the population should always pay 1% of the taxes, regardless of income?
One of you will end up here next!
