Majority rule...wasn't that the founding father's interest?
Can I assume that this is a joke?
Regardless of the poster's intent, it is true.
It's true that the Founding Fathers wanted majority rule?
What do you think "Occupy" this and that is about? Don't try to
think to hard about it; generalize.
Greed, sloth and jealousy. Oh, and how the 1% paying for 40% of the
entire cost of gummit isn't Fair enough.
You may call it what you will. You will rationalize it as you will.
The facts remain that the more wealth that is concentrated in fewer
hands, the more discontent and unrest there will be.
No, no Kidding!
It is you that really don't get it.
It is me that don't get it? Is English a second language for you?
Always with the insults. You really cannot see what is right in
front of you, can you.
Here's a hint for you; look at history. Yes, it is a broad thing,
but consider why every revolution in history has occurred. Try not to
overanalyze; stick with the simple things.
Taxation hasn't been the cause of EVERY revolution, Dave.
And taxation is not the problem today either. This is a
CONservative illusion to confuse some people. It has worked with you
too, I see.
I didn't say it was the problem today.
What, in your mind, caused EVERY revolution in history?
It is not in my mind alone, but generally accepted truism. What
causes all revolution is discontent by the people for what they
perceive is their station in life.
It might be concentration of wealth, or power, or ownership of land;
One school of thought is that all revolutions are because of ownership
of land, but that is really a distillation of all of the other things.
Always remember that perception is reality. You can see that in
real life by your belief that taxes are the problem today, when it is
plain that it is not the problem.
The problem with today's economy is that there are not enough
consumers. The reason that there are not enough consumers is that
there are fewer well paid jobs. If one wanted to improve the US
economy, all that would have to happen is that companies would hire
people at realistic salaries, and give raises now and then.
Instead, the current drive is to offshore labor to places where
working conditions are bad, environmental laws are weak, and labor is
cheap. The problem with this is that it does nothing for the people
of this nation. In fact, it hurts this nation's economy, and we, the
Once can continue the delusion that Reagan posited that if the
wealthy do well, the rest of us will prosper, but it is not true as
one can easily see.
As long as multinational corporations control government, and we,
the people, you can pretty well expect further erosion of the buying
power, and degradation of the US economy.
You will not get it. You believe in Atlas Shrugged, and
Fountainhead. My time is wasted with you.
