And it would appear that this incoming 'tax cut' will add 1.4 Trillion dollars to your national debt? Well done, Conservatives...well done!

You realize that Obama doubled the national debt in eight years right?
The Dems didn't exactly pinch pennies.

Oh. Well then, this oughtta fix things.

Debt didn’t seem to bother the D’s when they were in office.

See above.

You’re really not listening to me or others who are questioning this tax bill.


First of all, I'm not against tax cuts for MC or poor people, or even tax cuts for the rich if there modest.


What most people don’t like is the humongous tax cuts for the rich.


Then "most people" should really mind their own business, unless what other people pay IS your business.


It is their business they live in the country.

You people are the ones who separate people form the society--the rich you love so much as if their gods or kings.

The richest senator is a democrat he voted against this…

Thank God everybody doesn’t think like you folks we’d have a monarchy

But instead because of folks who idealize the rich so much they worry about them paying higher taxes we almost have a monarchy, we have instead an oligarchy.

It always baffled me why people worry so much about the higher taxes rich folks pay.

Oh...the poor rich people...I feel so sorry for them.

Communist countries didn't have taxes. Everything was public ownership. Syria built thousands of buildings and population increased from 4 million in 1960 to 20 million in 2010. It wasn't because of taxes. It was because of communism. Even if America taxes every citizen at 100% tax rate, America still cannot build like Syria did, because America is not a communist country.

... yet.

It's coming though, whether we like it or not. I just wish conservatives would accept it and LEAD it, or we're going to get run over by it.

Communism doesn't work. Too high population growth leads to war, like in Syria.

just an FYI we built practically the entire western world since 1945 after the entire industrialized world imploded in on itself and is why we have been so prosperous and dominant in the market.

So wanting to keep more of what I earn is "selling my soul".

Yet you just previously stated that you yourself wanted a tax cut.

How much did your soul cost?

I beg to differ. German industry is superior to American industry. America may be bigger, but when it comes to quality, Germany is in the lead.

Communism was never possible until now and I hate to be the one to break it to you, but global Socialism is being implemented as we speak. It is the devil's system, and the only way to stop it is through National Communism here in America.

And there is no population problem, only the illusion of scarcity. The world's population will level out at 11 billion. A really, really smart guy told me so.

Well that could get interesting.

And this came out of a Republican congress?



One would think that the Evangelicals that supposedly rule the party would never let such a thing pass. Surely they can forsee what this is going to do to their business model. Can't they?

But you're happy to dictate that people's money should be forcefully taken and spent on a giant wall?

And please don't say Mexico are paying. They are not.

And you're wrong. The government absolutely has a right to tax its citizens for the good of the country.

Are you also annoyed about roads, police, the fire service etc?

Honestly I don't understand how this kind of bizarre partisan indignation continues so openly. You've just moaned about being forced to provide CLEAN WATER to your own population.

How did we get to this point? Seriously?

Communism is as much the "devil's system" as socialism is... Communism has murdered and imprisoned more people than any other system. i find it ironic how left-wingers whine about the prison system in the U.S. and many of those same people think communism is great when communism has imprisoned even more people. Thats not mentioning the 110-160 million who have been killed under communist regimes. (deaths of military personnel or even civilians who died during wars is not included in these numbers) In the soviet union alone over 22 million people were sent to gulags, hard labor camps, labor settlements, etc, etc.

If you think that getting prison time for having too much marijuana on you is bad, how bad do you think it could get for getting imprisoned for simply saying anything bad about the government? Or for speaking about freedom etc? (i am not talking about violent rioting, or inciting violence, but simply for saying things that right now would not get you imprisoned)
