I appreciate your concern.

Cruz would use Canadian Jesus-magic to turn congress into "The Hall Of Bishops" and they would have to write laws making everyone Christian.

Yep! That's right.
You don't see it coming?

Well - it's not like we aren't trying to tell you.

Do you?
If so - why?




He values the Rights most important to me and his policies cost me the least amount of money.

I've grown weary of compromising my wants and needs and footing the bill so other's can experience the America they want will pissing down the neck of the America we had. Trump, Cruz, Carson, Paul... all men who represent not only ideals I can get behind, but also ideals which benefit me. Isn't that what it's all about now? Everybody gets a medal, everybody is special, no such thing as common American exceptionalism because individuals aren't experiencing the America of their dreams?

Yeah. You sound like some other members who are worried about "living in a van down by the river" and starving in a cardboard box under a bridge.......
worried that they will live longer, but in misery, if others have necessary sustenance, shelter, clothing, water.....

Where the hell do you people (guys and gals) get this stuff?




The only people who this will effect are uber-rich megamillionaire tax-cheaters.......
whether human individuals or "corporation-people."

Are you folks so very rich and well off that you really feel that way?

Yeah - I have to say - I laughed (shadenfreude) when the $10 million super-yacht sank.


So - what are you going to do with all the "born babies" that no one else wanted? Send them out to drift on a raft made of plastic bottles? Or, an ice floe that has broken away from the glacier?

Or, are they not your responsibility, so they can just go live in a van down by the river?

Jeeezus....you folks are so greedy it makes my eyes bleed.......

What in the blue hell are you talking about? The tax institute's analysis of the Sanders' plan showed a 9% tax increase for my bracket. I'm nowhere near "uber-rich."

I'm also not worried about living in a van down by the river. I'll be in a cabin in the woods, happy as a pig in [Sanders' tax plan] if things get that bad.

Bottom line: aside from my own family, nobody else's feeding, housing, medicating, and entertaining is my responsibility. I will be voting accordingly and encouraging all others who actually work for a living to do the same.

If you can achieve all those goals without raising taxes, then why hasn't it already been done?

Sorry but I think your constant fears of a theocracy are about as rational as the other sides fears of socialism.

Maybe back off on the propaganda for a while.

2 cents for what its worth.


It doesn't have to be from a perspective of Fear or even the idea of a Theocracy though. A theocracy would just be one worst case scenario but I doubt a full blown theocracy would ever happen here anyway. Too many sinners and non-conformists to have that happen even in 8 years IMO. But that doesn't mean he wouldn't try or that he couldn't start us on that road with all the trouble it would cause. So there is still plenty to be concerned with and it shouldn't just be laughed at and dismissed. The guy really likes him some good old fashioned Religious Rule and would have no problem stripping away many of our liberties in implementing it. There is no way in hell he would even consider separation of church and state in any law that came across his desk. That is a dangerous thing.

But - what about the 'babies' that will be born to unfit and unwelcoming parents? What about the parents of those babies who need health care, and homes, and educations........
You going to take care of them, too?



NO?
Ah, I get it.

Because 'corporations' are allowed to off-shore, evade taxes, and stash their cash in faraway lands and NOT pay taxes or take care of their employees.

They aren't REQUIRED to participate.......or to pay their employees enough to not depend on you and me to pull up the slack.......
but - their shareholders sure are happy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that's why it has not already been done.

Sure, I'll pay some taxes to reopen orphanages. As far as unfit mom and dad go... [SNIP] 'em, just the same way they say [SNIP] you to every middle class man and woman on tax day with their hands out and their attitude of "I exist, pay me." Laziness should be a self correcting problem... you get off your ass and earn your way, or you die. Anything else is ... unnatural.

So I gotta pay?

Nope.

I'll vote for anyone who wants to lower taxes and make government smaller.

But that's just me.

Are you filthy rich and hiding your assets off-shore?


Nope.


Think about this.

YEP. If you are filthy rich and hiding your assets off-shore, and employing people who can't survive on the crumbs you throw at them.......

then, YEP.
You gotta pay.

If you are not filthy-rich and hiding your assets off-shore, and employing slave-wage sweat-shop drones who have to rely on social programs to survive because of your 'business-model' then..... Nope.
Nope, you don't.

Get it?

For good measure, he announced his candidacy at Liberty University, the institution founded by evangelical firebrand and conservative powerbroker Jerry Falwell.

I guess you guys can leave Cruz alone about that one now.

The problem will arise when the definition of "filthy rich" does include my salary.

Well, I know you have aspirations to such - but - are you now "filthy rich"?

Are you hiding money in foreign banks? Avoiding paying your taxes?

If not - then - "filthy-rich" does not include you. As much as you'd like it to ------

it doesn't.
And if you ever get "filthy rich", and have in excess of $500 million that you aren't paying taxes on, and don't want to share with the worker drones who make that possible - then -
it does.

No one needs $500 milion.

Cap wealth, distribute it amongst those who have nothing......and the problem goes away....
your kids will still have PLENTY.

Ah, yes, good point.

But you don't think Cruz has those folks now?

They didn't 'change clothes' when they were Trump supporters.......
no matter how you slice it, greed is still greed.
No - I will not 'leave Cruz alone.' He is dangerous.

So you are stating that no one making under 500 million a year will see an increase in taxes?

Okay folks - truly, I am leaving you all to this -
I've made my points.

I make no apologies for my position.
Have a great week, and night, and month.
