The Nazis may have lost the war but more and more it seems they won it if you take my meaning. We're headed for complete subservience and virtual slavery or bloody revolution. I'm personally down with the latter.
You folks did it yourselves by buying into being "progressive"
We mean people like you and your ilk.
It must suck being against fiscal responsibility.
I can't recall: weren't you against raising taxes?
It must suck being against fiscal responsibility.
Nope, I'm all for tax increases, along with massive spending cuts.
So you're not beating the Tea Party drum. What makes you think Cutter falls directly into a party line and is against any kind of fiscal responsibility?
And how do you identify as conservative if you think we should raise taxes? Doesn't that make you a socialist, in your own lingo and logic?
No it doesn't, there's a major difference between realizing tax rates are lowest they've been in 60 years and not having issue with putting in a little more and that goes for everyone not just the 1%, thing is unless there's massive spending cuts, it won't matter. I keep telling you this Beamer and you keep coming back with spending doesn't matter type of bullshit. Your 6 figure salary won't mean shit when paper money is worthless in a few years at the rate we're going. Should have never gotten off the gold standard.
I don't know what you guys want to be classified as, when you spew the liberal playbook of tax the rich, race card playing, etc. on a regular basis should someone call you a republican instead?
