Gamer... you are possably the most embittered hater of the Republican party I've ever seen. To be honest I don't hate republicans, my father and grandmother are republicans, and my father is one of the smartest men I've ever met.
By these guy's standard, he's a liberal, by anyone else's he's a moderate.
He's in favor of people being able to choose things for themselves instead of government telling them what to do. He doesn't hate rich people, and believes we should look out for the poor and give them a hand up instead of free money.
We both hate the bush tax cuts, not becauce it gave a tax break to the highest income bracket, but because it was a poorly done one.
Like it or not there are always going to be three classes to any civilization from tribal socities, to dictatorships, republics, communist states, and even democracies.
The key is getting upper, middle, and lower, classes to thrive and work togeather, making class mobility easy. Generally the larger the middle class the better off a country is overall.
All three form gears in a functioning socity, and are not evil in and of themselves.
for example there is actual sound thinking in what regan did with the tax cuts for the wealthy, if most wealthy people want to make more money, thus they invest it, and see returns on that investment, in the process it is good for the country as smaller companies see larger investments. Regan's tax cuts worked because those wealthy americans invested in american companies. When bush just said "here's free money!" and expected it to help the economy.
Those tax cuts paid for a boom in both industry and technology in asia, not in america.
Done properly it should have been along the lines of "okay we need to stimulate the economy, we'll give you rich guys a tax break for the next three years if you invest in american industry and technology. We might even extend it if you guys do a good job." note not four years, thus avoiding making canceling the tax breaks the other guy's problem.
The GOP in texas seemes from the overall article to fear change in all forms, political, religious, scientific, and cultural, and that is a dangerious thing, it also makes a country poorer and more miserable in the long run. they are also the GOP of Texas, the reddest state in the Union.
again I don't hate republicans, I don't hate democrats, I hate arogant bastards for whom their way is the only way that should exist. The Far Right and The Far Left. I also hate people who belive shafting the rest of their fellow man is a way to succeed in the long term.
I don't hate rich people for being rich, I hate rich people who believe they are above the law and arogant enough to believe they are so rich that they have no responsibility to either the government who provided them with the oppertounities, or the employees who they've never met yet who worked hard every day to make and sell those products. it's a team effort from rich to poor and everywhere between, all struggling to succeed togeather by making products, profit, and sales, that's not socialisim, that's actually captialsim straight from Wealth of Nations. Whose author warned against abuses like those of The Duch East India Company (he used them as the example of the time.)
