    Makes sense. People usually aren't interested in keeping up arguments they have to lose.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    If I thought anyone on this board was stupid enough to actually believe the government always bails out the rich, I might stick around and argue, but it's really all for naught because even you know it's bullspit, so CYA.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    However, anyone on this board can read a pretty meaty post that makes a much broader argument than that.

    No. I'm in favor of single-payer, but the tax increase shouldn't affect only the wealthy.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
