Most of you obviously didn't watch the same debate that I did. Even FOX news poll says Obama won. Don't get side tracked with facts though......

Said it before & I'll say it again.. Obama and that Wookie have no intentions of coming out of that house in November, they enjoy being the rulers of free-dumb.

Obama has his own special.. EBT-Card & I wouldn't doubt that Sasquatch has already threatened his handlers to "fix" this or she'll have him "..kick that phucking football so far down wind, ain't be none of'em gettin up."

Just sayin.. you can take the Wookie out'a the gheto, but you ain't never scrubbing the gheto off that Wookie.

Is Romney giving a 20% tax cut across the board? He claimed last night he wasn't giving a 5 trillion dollar tax cut. Which is it? He said we need less regulations on Wall Street and he wants to repeal Dodd Frank. He then said he wanted to increase regulations to limit the size of Wall Street Banks and determine what loan terms should be. Which is it? Less regulations or more? Pick one. He said he wasn't going to alter Medicare and then went on to explain how he was going to turn it into a voucher (coupon) system. He praised his own Healthcare plan in Massachusetts and said all States should follow his lead. They have, it's called Obamacare.

Virtually every time Mr. Romney spoke, he misrepresented the platform on which he and Paul Ryan are actually running. The most prominent example, taking up the first half-hour of the debate, was on taxes. Mr. Romney claimed, against considerable evidence, that he had no intention of cutting taxes on the rich or enacting a tax cut that would increase the deficit.

That simply isn’t true. Mr. Romney wants to restore the Bush-era tax cut that expires at the end of this year and largely benefits the wealthy. He wants to end the estate tax and the gift tax, providing a huge benefit only to those with multimillion-dollar estates, at a cost of more than $1 trillion over a decade to the deficit. He wants to preserve the generous rates on capital gains that benefit himself personally and others at his economic level. And he wants to cut everyone’s tax rates by 20 percent, which again would be a gigantic boon to the wealthy.

You would have Insurance companies making the Voucher system look good until they draw enough people from Medicare to destroy (defund) it. Then they would start raising their rates.

There is no Free Market, just Capitalism.

Capitalism is the social system which now exists in all countries of the world. Under this system, the means for producing and distributing goods (the land, factories, technology, transport system etc) are owned by a small minority of people. We refer to this group of people as the capitalist class. The majority of people must sell their ability to work in return for a wage or salary (who we refer to as the working class.)

The working class are paid to produce goods and services which are then sold for a profit. The profit is gained by the capitalist class because they can make more money selling what we have produced than it cost to buy on the labour market. In this sense, the working class are exploited by the capitalist class. The capitalists live off the profits they obtain from exploiting the working class whilst reinvesting some of their profits for the further accumulation of wealth.

Can you come up with another definition of Capitalism? This IS how our system works. We have thrown in some protections for the working class but those protections are constantly under attack. As for the Free Market, there is no such thing. All Markets require rules these rules are fluid and take on the characteristics of the current rule makers. Under Capitalism those rule makers tend to be the Capitalist or Elite class. Capitalism is always a struggle between the workers (producers) and the Capitalists.

Obama basically admitted that everyone would prefer the voucher system and would leave S.S
 Quoting: *Heisenberg*


You would have Insurance companies making the Voucher system look good until they draw enough people from Medicare to destroy (defund) it. Then they would start raising their rates. Tell me I'm wrong. Privatizing Social Security would put your retirement at the whim of the Stock Market. How many people would have lost their entire retirement in the last stock market crash. Wall Street just wants your money. They don't care if you retire or not.

Retire? What the Hell is that? My Dad worked until he died, so will I.

The government hates when people have a choice. When there is competition....because the government always loses.

We can't have that evil evil free market getting involved...

Yea, I noticed Obama feels the same way.
 Quoting: *Heisenberg*


There is no Free Market, just Capitalism.

Capitalism is the social system which now exists in all countries of the world. Under this system, the means for producing and distributing goods (the land, factories, technology, transport system etc) are owned by a small minority of people. We refer to this group of people as the capitalist class. The majority of people must sell their ability to work in return for a wage or salary (who we refer to as the working class.)

The working class are paid to produce goods and services which are then sold for a profit. The profit is gained by the capitalist class because they can make more money selling what we have produced than it cost to buy on the labour market. In this sense, the working class are exploited by the capitalist class. The capitalists live off the profits they obtain from exploiting the working class whilst reinvesting some of their profits for the further accumulation of wealth.

Have you ever studied the history of the Soviet Union? Do it, then whine about Capitalist exploiter's after seeing how the Apparatchik exploiter's screwed over the workers far worse than the capitalist ever dreamed of.
