116. Ignore their political assertions because it obviously isn't a fight that can be won
Edited on Wed Nov-23-11 06:26 PM by darth marth
but it is so easy to win....

Here are their arguments....The economy is all Obama's fault...well you can't just let them get away with that! Look at all the wasteful spending Bush did with the trumped up wars(you have now been proven right about the lies in the lead up to that war)...the economy was tanking, Bush did the bailouts and the big picture reveals it is actually the free trade agreements that caused the whole job loss situation which can be blamed on George H W and Clinton....

They blame spending on welfare, medicare and can't let them go on saying that when the vast majority of spending is on the military on wars that were proven to be based on lies, not to mention highly illegal and immoral resulting in the deaths of millions of innocent people.(very Christian!)

bring a chart, then carefully...slowly... explain FICA taxes and how they separately fund SS and medicare and ALL of the politicians have been stealing from that trust fund to pay for wars and tax cuts and now they don't want to pay it back.

THAT is why they and the corporate media are pretending 'oh social security cost so much money' it is so stupid I don't think we should allow them to continue to screw over the least of us just to enable these morons in their stupidity.

And when they bring up 'too much government' ask them who created the brand new HUGE GOVERNMENT department of Homeland Security? And the TSA?

And when they whine about paying taxes, ask them who is supposed to pay for all their big government, wars, oil subsidies, gravy train war contracting and double dipping hypocrites at the pentagon??

Rush Limbaugh thinks that no one should pay tax for a year, and 'see what happens' to fix the deficit.

If no one pays taxes who is going to pay for all this crap? How would the deficit get better? Could you ask them for me, I really would like to know how people explain that one. I just don't get these people!!
