Why do people paint everything with such broad strokes?


Like when Hillary said Trump supporters were in a basket of deplorables and irredeemable?

They don't hate rich people, they hate the corruption in politics which all comes from Big Biz and wealthy donors. Now that bribery is legal in American politics there's much more to hate about having money influence politics. When DC politicians no longer serve the American people, instead serve their donors there's a YUGE problem.

But of course, small minded conservatives just chalk it up to the Left hating rich people, which is ironic because the majority of American conservatives aren't at all rich and never will be.

Nope. Demand creates jobs. "Regular" people having money to spend creates jobs and businesses.






That's the biggest logical fallacy of them all...

The thought that the really rich having a lot of money makes for a strong economy. When it is exactly the opposite.

A strong economy by definition is the easy circulation of money. It's having a consumer base with lots to spend.

It doesn't matter how they got that money, weather it is hard work, lottery or wrath distribution is irrelevant.

All that matters is that it circulates and no one circulates money more than poor people buying nonsense..

Because if people truly wanted to experience the American dream he wouldn't be taxing the rich or even moderately upper-class citizens that America has already. The rich provide the jobs.


Don't tax the rich or almost rich??
Do you expect the poorest people to pay all the taxes? That won't bring in enough to support the military, or the infrastructure of the country. Plus no money left for food and household bills.

Maybe a consumer tax? Tax on stuff bought (not food), like cars, furniture, etc...
That will be a tax on the highest spenders.

A consumption tax would disproportionately impact the poor.

Generally, as income declines, spending as a percentage of income actually increases. The rich don't stay that way by spending it all.

Yea and lets face it, if anyone hadn't noticed how they go after Trump like he were a criminal for having money, having the confidence of enough americans to get elected president ect. Thats what this is all about.

Rather than Joe welfare going across the street once in awhile and thanking his neighbor for going to work everyday for him or her.

I don't hate the rich. I hate when a CEO makes 200 million dollars a year before bonuses and after dozens of tax loopholes pays an effective tax rate of less than 10% while a 10 year old in China makes 5 cents hour making plastic goods and the retail employee that sells it with a smile to the customer that thinks she doesn't deserve more than that because some people are nurses making 20 dollars an hour, completely stupid to the fact that the nurse should be making 40, makes 8 dollars an hour at the chain store that drove all the small businesses she could be making more money at, away.

Are you aware that most of the "red states" are the ones who use more public assistance such as food stamps, and aid to dependent children?


By far mostly in Democrat voting areas.

Mississippi is a good example




look at the actual percent per district..

They will have a 2% democrat voting rate, but a 25% poverty rate..

I live in ms and there is no shortage of trailer park republicans who buy all the nonsense about "they are comming to get your guns"...

How can anyone be that stupid.... Mexico never performed human sacrifice either! That was the Aztecs and Mayans! Mexico is a country colonised by SPAIN!


So that's why Trump is building a wall, he's trying to keep out Quetzcoatl and his fanatical child sacrificing followers!

And lets not forget those pesky Olmecs who are trying to steal American jobs.

That's because its true.

For over 80 years gun regulation puts millions of Americans out of work.

With no job that means no income.

Which creates poverty.

The firearms/accessories/ammunition is a multibillion dollar industry.

That use to create millions of middle class jobs.

Which no longer exist.

Thanks to Gun control pushers.

Donald Trump (not his real name BTW)


please, do you know how many immigrants names were changed in the early 1900's at Ellis Island or themselves.
my mothers great grandfathers last name was changed at Ellis Island when he came from Italy.

and as far as trump,

Donald Trump’s Real Name is Donald Drumpf-Mostly Fiction!
Summary of eRumor: There’s been a movement on social media to rebrand Donald Trump as “Donald Drumpf,” which is supposedly the presidential candidate’s real surname.

The Truth: Donald Trump’s family name was changed from Drumpf to Trump at some point in history, but it’s not accurate to say that the Donald’s real surname is “Drumpf.” That idea came from a segment on HBO’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.” In the segment, which can be viewed here, Oliver discussed how the name “Trump” is often associated with power and prestige, and he continued:
Donald Trump’s Real Name is Donald Drumpf-Mostly Fiction!




so a forgien libtard starts a rumor and the left pick it up and run with it.
pitiful, pitiful, pitiful

I think a better question is why do you hate yourself so much that you keep making biased threads which cause people to fight with each other and cause more hate and divisiveness based on a false premise???

Anyone who wasn't already in some kind of personal pain would be trying to make the world around them better not worse. But you continue to pump out posts that are made only for the purpose of causing more destruction between people and it's all based on heavily biased shallow reasoning and lies.

It must be awful to be you and have to suffer day in and day out with all that negativity and hatred just brewing inside you. But if you think bringing people down to your level of existence is going to help, it's not. You're just making it worse for yourself and others.

They believe wealth is a zero-sum game, that when one gets rich it means another is getting poor. They believe the rich get rich off the backs of others. These are false beliefs.

This message is intended for the legacy gained wealth... those of you that gather wealth from ancestors, then march around like the money was self made and never giving it to areas to help humanity as whole.


Perfect.

Yes because if we deregulat

If there is an abundance of jobs and a shortage of workers, wages will go up.

If the opposite is true, wages will go down.

Simple supply and demand.



That is by far the most ridiculous comment I have ever heard in my life. Please remove your head from your ass. I fear you'll suffocate if you dont.

I find it hilarious when your at a hospital. You see these PhD doctors standing around drinking coffee and chit chatting about whatever it is they talk about. Then here come the janitor. Being paid considerably less then those doc working five times as hard.

Both the left and rights are rich snobs who care nothing less then the bottom line. You are worthless to them all. Yet we have them hook line and sinker. Just stop buying things. That will get their attention.

If everyone agreed to work for minimum wage, would wages go up or down?


I'm not getting your question.

Are you asking what if everyone came to a consensus on what wage they should all be making?

Because that is impossible.

These are false beliefs.


Especially since all money is fiat, and is printed out of thin air.

That the state can print anytime they wish.

They are literally fighting over nothing.
