The American People have spoken and....
Edited on Sun Apr-10-11 04:09 PM by BluePatriot21
they demand these things. I'm tired of the right wing actually doing something for the people on their side that have spoken. I'm jealous and envious that they actually vote for someone and that person actually makes things happen in reality that they supported in the campaign and reinforced their reasons for why they voted for that person. It makes them seem validated and I am sure they feel included in their form of fascist democracy. I think that when we voted in Obama, that we had "spoken" because we were the people we had been waiting for. But it seems like we lost the person that we had been voting for...now where did that guy go? I think we need to demand certain things and stay on top of our guy, our job isn't over and we've let him off the leash.

I think it's time we get OUR things in return for our votes and our economic sacrifices, layoffs, unemployment depressions and foreclosed homes. It's payback time, and why not actually get some things that will actually make a difference on this whole phony right wing trumped up reduce the deficit USA tour? Kill Medicare? Only if you tax millionaires, corporations and shut down the Cayman Islands tax Shelters. Kill off social security...only if you de-fund endless war and end the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen and Libya. You want to kill off a liberal ideal that you hate? We have one of yours in our cross hairs to end too...tax churches...triple tax private schools for the elite...bring back the draft and make it mandatory to join, no dodging for going to school and being rich, ALL RICH brats must join and fight and die alongside the poor. You like guns so much? Well let's tax them more to pay for right wing war. Want to kill unions? Well we can figure out what else you are in love with, offshore drilling, coal mining, ANWR pollution on and on and on. What else am I missing here that we can screw with that the reich wing republicans love but never would like to lose??? I want more examples! ooH OHH giving money to foreign countries...especially Israel!! Their right wing retarded half brother in the middle east...Israel! De fund that and stop wasting our tax dollars on terrorism in Israel, stop the GAZACIDE! No not that!!


Things we need to make them do

tax the rich
abolish the tax cuts for the rich
tax the corporations and abolish the loopholes for GE, Banks etc
tax left wing-right wing churches, they want religion involved in government? Let's give it to them.
tax companies that have moved jobs overseas, don't support American workers, piss off
tax wall street a surcharge on transactions
abolish oil futures trading that affects gasoline prices
abolish the new ability for corporations to donate to political campaigns = fascism

prosecute people for the crimes that happened during bush/cheney that led to this great recession/depression. Punish white collar criminals - whats fair is fair. Bank of America laundered cocaine and marijuana drug money, where are the people in jail for that? Is fascism really that easy?

1. You see how everything you want involves taxing people other than you?
I guess everyone's dream is to get stuff without paying for it.

The rich want to make money without having to pay for everyone else's stuff.

7. not sure i understand your point
I want people to pay their fair share, so far last I checked I pay my taxes. My taxes are going to increase this year helped cause. So I want everyone to pay taxes including the elite rich, I want them to help reduce this deficit that their tax reductions have helped inflate and cause to escalate.
It's been shown that a person that makes 50k pays more taxes than GE, Bank of America and some fo the elite rich. I just want all to sacrifice together, equally and under the current fascist government of America we only sacrifice if we are either poor, in the middle class or a small businessman. If you cant afford a lobbyist, a high end accountant or an offshore taxshelter then you pay taxes just like I do. I just want to help reduce the deficit, and by raising taxes on those that have lobbied to get free rides, we can reduce that deficit burden together.

5. The United States first started bombing Yemen in 2002.
Before the invasion of Iraq began--though I'd note that the US bombed Iraq every other week in the time between 1998 and the Iraq War Resolution so we can really argue about which war came first--the war in Yemen or the War in Iraq.

I'm of the personal opinion that given not a single year has gone by since 1991 where we did bomb Iraq we have been at war in some form in/with Iraq for 20 years.
