And they got that, and they dont know what to want other than what they used to want, lower taxes on the rich, less social welfare, and deregulation.
    why should the rich pay more money when all that does is encourage the many to demand more government

    people want more stuff when they don't have to pay for it

    I don't believe in voting anymore. I don't even think our elections are real at this point.

    I think they might have left more than a few people behind.
    I'm with you, man. The first Dem i voted for might have been Clinton in 96.But I voted for Bush in 2000 (my theory- both parties are the same!), and I have a feeling I will have to do penance for that the rest of my natural life.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I love capitalism, I hate crony capitalism and I do not deny that Obama supports the latter, any President we ever get under our current system must, but crony capitalism, or corporate socialism, or regulatory capture, is the biggest thing going in our government right now.

    It is a strawman (or lie) to say that I want punish great wealth, I want to prevent great wealth from being used to steal from everyone else. I am in the top 5% in income, but I recognize the vast, VAST difference between me and the owners of this country, another are screwing the American people by buying policy.

    Ike saw that, Nixon saw that, Reagan, not so much, Rhenquist didn't give a crap.

    The poll did not include my 2008 choice, which was a write-in vote for Hillary Clinton. Inexperienced empty-suit with a great smile, or BushLite and Bubblebrain? No thank you.

    In 2012, the GOP would have had my vote if they'd only put up an experienced, no-nonsense moderate without all the right-wing extremist baggage. So they gave me... Romney? Romney??? That was the best the GOP had in 2012, cream of the crop, best of the best.

    *sigh* I went with the empty-suit that finally had some experience, if only four years' worth. Shape up, republicans. You're killing me here.

    You think the rich don't want to pay more because of how it might affect others? Seriously?

    LOL, I too voted for Reagan twice and Bush Sr. twice. After that, things took a serious downturn with republican candidates and policy.

    2008 - Obama

    2012 - Johnson (didn't make the same mistake twice) [also, my political views changed quite a bit]

    The fact that voted for Hilary says a lot about your level of information.

    1996 Dole
    2000 Gore (saw little difference in the two at the time. I was wrong)
    2004 Kerry

    thought I'd do the same.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
