Let's see, I ask for proof (that's all I asked for) of the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer and you call me a dumbass. My savior George Bush? I have been critical of him for being far too liberal and socialist with his ideas. I think the upper class tax cuts are great and more for EVERYONE upper, middle, and hell even lower are great. My father (RIP) was a Vietnam vet and didn't even graduate highschool before going and he was able to get a very well paying job after by working his ass off and doing some studying when he got back. There are people who are in awful predicaments and that sucks and they should hae help, but that does not somehow justify the amount taken away from the people, which is more than enough to fund the military and any veterans (by the way, what % of our tax dollars go to the military and veterans, genius).
I want proof of how the country with the wealthiest poverty line (over $19k a year is considered effing poverty), the highest average income (with the only nations close including Norway which subsidizes its citizens with oil) is somehow making the poor poorer when the US continually is on top for all of these marks, even though our economic freedom is being lowered on a daily basis (goes to show how far a little bit of capitalism will do for a society). I want you to try to argue with the Nobel prize winners fron the University of Chicago with your non-existent arguments. You would get slammed so fast, I don't know why I even bring it up.
Again, if you want to debate, let's bring some facts to the table instead of calling me a dumbass and saying Bush is my savior (when he is at the most a lesser evil among current politicians). Give me some examples of policy changes that are going to have a positive effect on our well being as a nation. Give me some examples of what is going to boost our economy and how, not just bullshit. Again, you can't do it. I know you can't. If you could, you'd win some prizes and be teaching at a great university, but you CAN'T. So, shut it or bring some facts out (not old rhetoric).
