As a Tea Party member, I take offense. You are not only wrong, but your casual assumptions paint a portrait of a narrow mind.


Sheer numbers will win. No one with any sense of economic self-preservation would vote for Romney.

Funny. The fact that QE3 is occuring just shows that Obama's economic policies have failed.

And you are promoting more failure.


Narrow mind my a@#!



And there are PLENTY more where these came from.
Tea Party members are mislead and most have no clue
(as you can tell in the video) what the hell they are talking about.
Most folks in this Tea Party video are racist,ignorant and
you can tell they are just regurgitating propaganda that
they have heard on fox news and other right wing media outlets.
It's propaganda and you know it.
If you don't then you're not near as smart as I thought you were.

In Texas, I run into these people all the time. Then when you ask them why they don't like
Obama, they can't give you ONE legitimate answer.
(and there are plenty)
It's always, "Obama is Muslim"
"Obama is not even from America" Or my favorite, "Obama got rid of National Prayer Day".
"Obama doesn't like Christians"
Yep I hate to say it but most of the people in your party are really ignorant.
Not to mention racist.
I think that sounds pretty close to Nazi behavior if you ask me. That or just flat out scary,
backward Hillbillies,idiocracised,toothless,ignorant beings that I'm embarrassed to call Americans.

At least the hillbillies can get their own car out of a ditch. Muslim or not, Obama is a racist.

That is not Obama's fault, if I shot you 15 times and you couldn't walk, would that be the doctors fault
or mine???


Then you can place blame on countless presidents since the creation of the Federal Reserve, but you think they are working in the best interests of the people, do you not?


Bush did not inherit the worst economy in 80 years, that is a reasonable and drastic difference.

I think every single person on this planet has a completely unique set of motivations.

In my town, things got worse after Obama. Not during Bush. Gas prices are still high.

economy started to crash.

Holy Joseph Smith, this thread is bumping.

Speaking of income tax, following the great depression FDR admin. put in a top income tax bracket of nearly 80% for people with over 5 mil.

This tax applied to one person, John D Rockefeller.

Edit: Was just thinking about this, and it was Teddy Roosevelt who played a huge role in breaking up Standard Oil. I wonder if the Roosevelt's sort of had it out for JD?

Imagine if Obama decided to tax Bill Gates at 80%?

Anyway, the top tax bracket right now is about 380k and up. While that's a lot of money, it's not A LOT of money. Why not implement a slightly higher rate for millionaires and let people 400-1mil stay the same as to not hurt small business.

Seriously, millionaires write off a lot of taxes anyway, don't they. I think the charitable giving deduction should be eliminated.

Hm, he is disgusting because he hasn't had to struggle in desperate poverty? Yeah, weird.

I find it unfortunate that Obama thinks i should pay for your health care, i don't owe you a single thing other then what i want to owe you. Healthcare isn't one of those things.

Hell, Medicare and Medicaid was even unconstitutional.

You have a right to pursue happiness, you don't have a right to be handed happiness from the government. You have the right to PURSUE it, which requires you to get off the couch.

He's disgusting because he's stereotyping and judging a group of people he knows nothing about and I hate how you guys come on here and assume so many people don't want to work and do nothing and expect handouts. Sure there are some cases, but not for most.

For the record you do not pay my healthcare

Interesting thing is they also support policies that are moderated by the reptilian part of the
brain.

What Romney said is what I have said many times but I include State and Federal Government Employees, including those living on earned and unearned pensions. So, if 47% are Government Dregs and around 25% are active employees feeding at the Public Trough, that is almost 75% of our country are Federalist Dregs and why me and mine are getting the hell out of here.

Romney with that 47% figure...is just doing some desperation SPIN

I am one of the 47% who depend on government... but not as a generational welfare parasite...
i am instead a 45 year social security tax-payer into the SS tax system, now retired, and fully expect the pittance of benefits i am allowed to receive every month...

my benefits are so small that i qualify as "poor" and could get Food-Stamps if i wanted to go through the hassle

so, that secretive spiel by Romney just underscores the reason why i will vote 'Libertarian'
instead of casting a vote for Romney as the best chance to oust the Socialist named Øbama...
(( bet the early & sealed records have 'Barry' as the real birthname and 'Barry' as the application name for enrollment at the Colleges under the suppressed minority & disadvantaged' slots to get a free educa tion for kids without actual live-in Fathers in the household...another example of 'gaming-the-sytem' by the present fearless leader... and the rea reason why health & birth & college records ARE ALL SEALED))


Libertarian ....or let Øbama have another 4 years to completely destroy the one 'united' States ...
the pop culture will vote for a closet Salafist
or the pop culture votes for another neocon


some choice huh


 


btw, i pay $100 month for my healthcare out of the SS retirement pension....
which ain't an entitlement or handout from government

neither are unemployment monies
and food stamps are a government payout to the public because of the unspoken deal between gov't and corporations... the corps pay higher taxes (but with loads of exemptions) so that the corps can pay lower wages to the bodies that function the business~~ it is a trade-off that was ironed out in smokefilled back rooms

A multitude of programs... Its all federal spending, but at the end of the day, Obama has the power to push changes or let the spending to continue... To tally up everything he spent the money on in 4 years of office would be exhausting, and I honestly dont have the time to do that right now... But you are free to run your own google searches...

Now, can you tell me how much was used for the good of the populace and how much was stolen?

That is the only sad part of his administration, five people in all big business find away to steal from the company or the government or money from the government for the populace.

When a democrat is in office-, it is stolen money
When a republican is in office …‘it is what it is! Who cares, big pay offs, lets make the rich get richer…Period!

That is the only difference between republicans and democrats, and that is not right.

Out of $5 trillion , 2 too 3 trillion never reached its destination….it never does!

It is a fact that 47% of people in the US pay no income tax and I am sure a majority of them think Obama will keep it that way.


Like my grandparents?
Yep, SS recipients, Military bennies, all those freeloaders!

Romney purposely made himself equal to everyone by giving his entire inheritance away and starting on his own.

People just don't want to admit that maybe he has business smarts and knows what he is doing.


A person's inheritance is not just cash, but many things, including good health, a people network of influential friends and associates, etc..let any man give up "all his inheritance" and then try to succeed, see how far he gets.

George Bush Jr. entered the White House with all his father's old pals, he came in with his father's network of contacts, he did not make these things on his own.

Mitt Romney told a group of donors in a surreptitiously taped private fundraiser that voters who back President Obama are "entitled" and "dependent on government."

Romney seems to be referring to the estimated 47 percent of Americans who did not owe federal income taxes in 2011 because their incomes were so low that they qualified for a tax credit, or because they didn't work at all. Last year, 22 percent of people who didn't owe income taxes were elderly people on Social Security, and an additional 17 percent were students, disabled people or the unemployed. More than 60 percent of the group were low-income workers, many of whom qualified for the child tax credit or the earned income tax credit. (These workers did pay payroll taxes for Social Security and other programs.)


Maybe people don't want to vote for you because your campaign is weak, you're creepy, you're at a disconnect with 99% of the country, and you're boring. Ever think about that? Just admit that you're unlikable...don't blame it on people "dependent" on the government. Maybe you helped those people come dependent, you outsourced their jobs did you not?

He's sitting here going on about healthcare when he is the one that was the first to start the individual mandate. And what does he want to do? Impose an income tax on people that do not have an income? Like 18 yr old college students? I don't get his point about taxes. Tax people that have no money already?

Romney = GROSS



Romney hit the nail on the head! In fact he may have just swayed this Ind. I was going to write in for Ron Paul so I can sleep at night with a clear conscience. I wish Romney would grow the balls to speak this way every day and stop worrying about hurting people's feelings. (Listen to Donald Trump and come out hitting back hard! You're coming off way too soft and pansy like. Speak your mind and stick to your convictions like Ron Paul does! You do that and you'll get my vote!)

Republicans have such content for people on entitlement programs. When you get power and I say when because it's only a matter of time cut them off. You better cling to your bibles and guns because when you end up with a nation of starving people they will cut your throats and eat your dogs.

What's funny about this is, of the few people I know on either welfare, food stamps, or fake disability, 100% of thrm are hard-core Republicans. Almost everyone I know if full-time employed, retired, or a stay-at-home mom, and of those, nearly all are Democrats. I realize that's just my small world, but from what I see, it seems like more of a microcosm than what they'd like us to believe is.

Well, you had better get ready, because like it or not, those entitlements are unsustainable.....and go ahead and tax the rich all you want, there isn't enough money (and the states is broke already)

And how many people are living off of social security? How is that an entitlement program? Those people paid into that system, and thus they are now being rewarded. That accounts for a large part of the percentage under discussion. And saying that people feel entitled, or democrats feel entitled, is just plain ignorance. How many rich people are democrats? There are many.

But of course there are many rich republicans. The one main difference I've noticed between members of the different parties is that democrats are much more compassionate people on a whole. They are also much less racist that republicans. Scientific study has verified that republicans are much more prone to bigotry, racism, and other unbecoming qualities.

Not all, but enough of them. When democrats get in office, at least they want to help the people. When republicans get in office, they selfishly only want to make money for themselves, their cronies, and those who already own profitable businesses. This is how the rich get richer. So saying that democrats feel entitled is just a way for this moron, and others like him, to skirt the real issues.

Why doesn't he release his tax returns? Of course we all know why. It isn't some moral objection or anything. That is laughable. No, it is because he, like the majority of rich republicans, has made his money through means that aren't always legitimate or ethical. Not only that, he wants to hide the fact that he isn't tithing to his church like he should be. That much is obvious. He wants all the benefits of being affiliated with his religious group, but he doesn't want to give back to them.

This is a republican attitude in general. It isn't that dems feel entitled, it is that republicans feel that they must steal everything away from those who have less than them. This is why the rich get richer. They have no moral compass. It is obvious when it all comes down to it.
