It'll be interesting to see where we are as a nation in 4 years. Legalizing weed and gay marriage are steps in the right direction imo. The Democrats definitely got on the right side of those issues. Fiscally I'm hoping for the best but fearing things will get worse.

this is like a Romney post after the first debate. come across as moderate so you can counter the right wing rep/accusation...

Anyhow you know what to do. Go down to your local American car dealership and "Sh*t on their lawn!"

He's right to a degree. Of course government isn't "running" (like CEO running) but they bailed out the auto industry and the banks and pass bills that force corporations to do certain things or get fined.

To an extent, that's running the company.

no its more like investing which is what it was, since we're making money on it. running would be like a CEO making those day to day decisions. the term 'running' is only used to exaggerate our stake in it for obvious agendas some people have.

My post was tongue-in-cheek to a degree but this is the gist of it. It's government financing and steering a private enterprise, for better or worse.

lmao

only now you see both sides after your recent 'moderate' post because i called you out for being right wing while always fronting like you're bipartisan

i'm so in your head its hilarious. and fyi i've always admitted to leaning left but i've at least made quite a few posts here criticizing the left or in favor of some things on the right, unlike you until very recently.

and quite honestly i don't think u care about anything that isn't directly relevant to you which is why almost every political post you've made here has been critical of being taxed more with this woe is me how hard it is to live on making over $250k and getting taxed more. typical selfish prick

You keep acting like all Republicans are stupid religious extremists who hate gays and believe in creationism and shit.

Do you not understand that is only the extremely far right?

That would be like me assuming that every liberal is a gay vegan hippy communist who believes in astrology.

no i never said that, i specifically mentioned his posts here. all of his political posts have been claiming he's independent or in the middle while every side he's taken has been from the right very critical of the left.

and every time i generalize the far right i'll always mention "far right" or its implied. feel free to link any post i've made where i've generalized all of the Republicans that way. in fact just yesterday i made the distinction that not all or even most of the right are probably racist, or maybe it was earlier today. i can't remember.

altho i don't think the selfishness from those earning over $250k is a far right mindset more than most or many Republicans.

Dont' let the fact that you know literally nothing about me cloud your judgement.

I voted a split ticket btw. You probably just voted straight Democrat and called it a day, if you're even old enough to vote.

I was very, very much against North Carolina's Amendment 1 defining marriage as only between a man and a woman and I voted against it. I firmly believe that religion has no place in governing a state or a nation despite the fact that I am a practicing Catholic.

There are flaws in both parties. I agree with the Democrats on a lot of issues, especially social ones, and with the Republicans on some, not all fiscal issues.

i know you're a dentist that likes to cook, that you claim to be in the middle but always attacking the left with right wing propaganda or exaggerations, and your biggest gripe seems to be having to pay higher taxes because you earn over $250k. feel free to tell me where i'm wrong with any of that in relation to your posts here, better yet quote where you said otherwise to prove me wrong. too bad you can't.

it is funny tho how you just claimed to be a not take anything seriously guy but seem pretty serious right now thats why i didn't believe any of your defense mechanisms or excuses to pretend your shots at me were said in jest and how i'm supposed to take them that way. you blow a lot of smoke after the fact

I should know better but I'll end with this: Of course there are things I take seriously. I just don't take myself so seriously. You should try it.

You obviously pay no taxes. Good for you. A lot of those of us paying at the highest percentages (much higher than Romney I might add) think that true tax reform is needed. Personally I get tired of being lumped in with the 1%. I have no qualms about paying my fair share but I shouldn't be demonized just because I happen to be modestly successful.
