Yes, because calling me a "communist" isn't a 60 year old trick to misdirect the trolls, right?
Here's what I know: America is 12th in the world for Entrepreneurs, according to Forbes, released today, behind New Zealand. Denmark, Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, The United Kingdom, and Australia. Most of those countries lean much further to the left than we do.
For example: Every single one has socialized medicine.
So you can take your Senator Joe McCarthy and stick it, because I never called for central control over the means of production. I called for a return to the tax rates of the 1990's.
You know -- back when the country was solvent and the economy was strong.

I said those who pay income taxes and those who own land are the only ones with a stake in the game.
Landowners have a vested interest in the health and well being of both their community and the country at large for one simple reason: Economic outlook.
Naturally those who actually pay income taxes should be the ones who have a say in how their money is spent.
Lets use the well known Obama phone degenerate as an example....name one simple reason why that creature SHOULD be allowed to vote. It's obvious she is poor, doesnt care what happens one way or another as long as she gets her "free" phone. Lets hear one good reason why she should have a say in how other peoples money is spent.

Wow even after the election Romney is still regurgitating the same BS far right talking point.
The vast majority of Obama supporters did not vote for him because they wanted a hand out. You have to be completely ignorant and full of the conservative kool-aid to believe that garbage.
They voted for Obama because Romney is a transparent corporatist who ironically wanted all the so called "hand outs" to go to the rich and his corporate cronies.
He lost because he is more fake than a hollywood blonde, and despite what he thinks, Americans are pretty smart and we can sniff out bull# better than he can spew it. He was a joke to his own peers during the primaries and he is still a joke now.

It's common knowledge that the bigger the turn-out, the bigger the GOP loses and the GOP did everything in their power to initiate voter suppression drives across this nation, yet it was not enough.
Despite all the voter suppression tactics, in a year when the GOP along with every right wing media source, was so sure that they would win the presidency in a landslide and that they would keep the House and win back the Senate, look at what happened.
In the real world, President Obama was re-elected, (becoming the fourth POTUS in U.S. history to be elected twice with over 50% of the vote) and the democrats picked up seats in both the House & Senate. Go figure!
Furthermore, if you think that romping felt bad, just wait until after the 2014 mid-terms and see how much of your TP/GOP ideology is left in Congress. It's over, either wake up or get left behind.

Our founding fathers created this country in a way that let everyone have a voice. But hey let's ignore that.
