Holy **** , I haven't seen so much ignorance since elementary school. Most people don't understand politics/economics, but it’s the ones like you who have the audacity to act is if you know anything that piss me off. So allow me to address your little rant point-by-point. Keep in mind if I really wanted to get into specifics than I’d be writing for days.

My parents are immigrants and when they first came to this country we had nothing. I spent Christmas/Birthdays/Holidays like any other day. We moved from shack to shack always trying to find a place called home. We tried those broken programs that the government simply doesn’t know how to handle with very little luck.

However, this did not stop my parents. My father worked three jobs as a measly cook and soon took over his very own restaurant. At 12 years-old I was in that kitchen from 530AM to 10PM every single day (unless I had school). Soon afterwards I was able to find the time to become an online programmer where I made my first 1000$ at 15 in a matter of minutes.

And guess what, I'm working my way through college (Michigan State University) as we speak. All of which I am completely paying for by myself. I am also duel majoring in Business kim jongistration and Computer Programming. Do you know how I've been able to do this? ************* hard work. So please, spare me your sob story.

As for business owners not having to actually work, well this is where you showed your ignorance. First and foremost, look at any business owner and you’ll see they’re working 80 hour work weeks. Although their work isn’t ALWAYS physical, the amount of stress is beyond what you could ever handle (i.e. my father a brain aneurysm, needs a new heart and a variety of other conditions due to stress). So let’s not undermine their work life you little prick. Your lack of business experience is completely fine until you start talking about it as if you know anything about it.

Lol actually I make online social networking websites. They sell for a very high dollar amount.

However, what I meant to say is that I talked a client into making a $1000 investment in me to start up an online Anime website. Last I hear, he is doing very well for himself.

As for tax breaks (subsidies), we all get them. Will I agree that they don’t always work – well of course. However, have they shown exceptional results in the past – yes. With this being said, lets address your feelings on the so called lazy rich people who didn’t work for anything, along with these EVIL tax cuts.

Taxes paid by millionaire households more than doubled to $274 billion in 2006, from $136 billion in 2003. What happened in 2003? We rolled back the Clinton tax increases! No president has ever plied more money from the rich than George W. Bush did with his 2003 tax cuts. That alone should dismantle your argument. Now let’s address the issue of them not paying their “fair share”. According to 2008 IRS records, the top 1% (income higher than $389,000) of Americans were paying for nearly 40% of all federal income taxes. The top 10% in income, that's income above $108,904, paid 71% of all income taxes. Btw, you are considered “wealthy” if you and your spouse combined income is over $100,000, which if I may speak frankly is damn pathetic. But anyways! All in all, your top 50% of Americans are paying 97.1% of all federal income taxes. All the while your bottom 50% is paying a measly 2.9%. This group of people is given a plethora of welfare services (my favorite is a free cell phone, with unlimited texting) that leaves someone stuck paying the bill. Granted, I do agree with many welfare services. However these systems are largely broken and extremely abused.
#2259 to #2257 - joemand (09/16/2012) [-]
As for blaming our current situation on Bush lol? You are undoubtedly one of the biggest fools I’ve had the displeasure of knowing. Our problems were caused by the Clinton era, not the Bush era. Although I do like Clinton for many policies, he made horrible mistakes. Such mistakes include NAFTA and forcing of banks to lend money to people they knew couldn’t pay back just so everyone could have house. Lol, yea we can clearly see how well that worked out (housing bubble, thus causing the major recession of 2008). Not only his, but Bush also had an all new type of war. But the most important thing we seem to neglect is the fact that the job rate was going up very well up until 2007 when the Democrats took the House and Senate 9refer to the picture to your left). Yet, Bush still raised out national debt 4.6 trillion dollars which is nothing to be proud of. This took him a grand total of 8 years, along with the help of NAFTA, the bubble, and the war. Within Obama’s first term, he has raised the debt 6 trillion dollars. Yup that’s right, our national debt is now at a whopping 16 trillion. If you honestly believe that won’t come back to hurt us, than you are truly naïve.

Listen, I could go on all day disproving your idiotic ideology. In fact, I’m two pages in and I have so much more to say. However, you’ve lost my interest. It only saddens me that people like you are what we call “college educated”. Welcome to a new era, where the self-entitled brats who have next to zero common sense are the ones who think their policies are the right ones. We’re so spoiled by our smart phones, big TV’s, nice communities that we completely forget to thank our ancestors for what we have. Instead we call for more, more, more.

User avatar #2319 to #2302 - joemand (09/16/2012) [-]
Revolution? Well no. Granted, government is way out of hand in my opinion. Things are literally falling apart before our eyes and we're literally oblivious to them. Although, if we continue down this path we'll certainly get a good punch to the gut.

With that being said, I still have hope in America. I still have hope that we can come to our senses and turn things around. I guess I still like to believe that people are going to realize that many of our policy makers are insufficient. But hey maybe I'm just being sentimental.
User avatar #2333 to #2319 - drmrniceguy (09/16/2012) [-]
Just feels like it's one of those expiration dates coming up- you know for damn sure every civilization doesn't last forever. To me, the USA has been skimming on a low point for a while.

Unfortunately, believing/hoping (Obama's policy) doesn't work and probably won't work for hoping USA is going to be OK. In My Humble Opinion, at least.
User avatar #2372 to #2333 - joemand (09/16/2012) [-]
Well if you look at any Capitalist country, they've only last about 250 years. Sadly, we're reaching that mark. So yea I do agree that it feels like we have an expiration date.

But unlike Obama who uses what I call firewords (hope, change, the middle class) to distract people, I really do want to change people's perspective. In all honesty as many times as I've lost faith in this country and want nothing more than to give up on it, I suddenly begin to look at the potential that we still have. Even if I can preserve the smallest sliver of greatest this country still has, whether someone listens to me or not, I'll always be willing to speak out for this country.

I'm a realist who understands what's happening. I've looked at the graphs/charts/facts and I know this country can't keep going. Yet there's a burning passion in me that just won't let me give up.

"The people are people, the leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards, and the lizards rule the people"
"Odd" said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy"
"I did" said Ford, "It is"
"So," said Arthur, hoping that he wasn’t sounding ridiculously obtrude, "Why don’t the people get rid of the lizards?"
"It honestly doesn’t occur to them", said Ford, "They've all got the right to vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted for more of less approximates to the government they want"
"You mean they actually vote for the lizards?"
"Oh yes, of course"
"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "Why?"
"Because if they didn’t vote for a lizard the wrong lizard might get in. Got any gin?"

the thing is, back in my day, when we saw rich people driving along in a fancy car, my dad would say, "hey, there goes mr.Jenkins, he worked hard for what he has" and now rich people are often frowned upon, I myself , being born pore, had to become somewhat wealthy through investing and through hard work, blood and sweat, of me and my fellow man, and now, my life is fairly set and won't have to work a day more in my entire day, and the simple truth is, everyone's main concern in life is money, the only thing is, rich people can obtain money easier and faster than others because they're rich, and rick people get all the attention in today's world, and people always look for a perfect president, well, all the good presidents are gone, dead, feeding worms, now we got normal people, and we have the need to point out hey, obama's this and that, and Romney's This and that, well they're just normal people, we've only got normal people, and everyone's got something about them that's ****** up, everyone just freaks out about all the things that the president does that they don't agree with, well , everyone, the main thing is, be nice, and enjoy the fact that you aren't living in pure hell right now

I should clarify. Being "socially liberal" and "fiscally conservative" (Social Liberalism and Fiscal Conservatism are their own distinct and fully-fleshed ideologies) best describes Market Liberalism, not Libertarianism.

Libertarianism is a fringe ideology. Typically it's teens and young adults that claim to be Libertarians without fully understanding what Libertarianism is.

That isn't really what a libertarian is. A libertarian can best be described as being one step away from anarcho-capitalism.

Being "fiscally conservative" is one thing, believing the government should have no involvement in anything except in maintaining a small standing army, is quite another.

My view of this matter:

Romney is a cunt. Hes a greedy little bastard that knows his way around the system to get what he wants, and doesn't mind that it will have a negative effect on those with less then him.

My view on Obama is a little softer but for good reason. Obama made promises and he tried so VERY hard to keep them. Senators at the time of his election very clearly admitted that they would do everything in their power to make Obama look bad so he wouldn't get re-elected. He tried so hard, but when he was elected the country was already in crisis. He had such great ideas to assist the economy and all citizens, but everything he tried to pass (most everything) was slaughtered by the senate. This only made things worse. The short sighted people in the senate are what made the country worse by deliberatly stopping Obama from doing his job. He made promises he couldn't keep, but god damn at least he TRIED.

you do not pay 50% income tax. If you do, you are not filing your taxes correctly. And if you really are in college, you get most of those(the federal taxes) back when refund time rolls around. I know this because I live in the real world.

I never claimed to pay 50% taxes

I said I make less than $15,000 a year. I said I made around $7,500 last year. That is less than $15,000. It's not my fault you can't read.
User avatar #2841 to #2838 - olinerocks (09/17/2012) [-]
let us assume you make ~$8400/yr before taxes.This puts you in the 10% tax bracket which puts you at $7560/yr. Assuming the 52 week year this means you earn ~ $146/week, meaning you work 16 hours a week. Lets assume an average community college tuition of (public, in district)—$2,963 for 12 credits. This means you have class for 12 hours every week (+ or - 2 hours for some courses with labs). in total, you are using only 28 hours in a week and that leaves you with 140 hours of free time. Assuming 7 hours of sleep and 24 hours of studying, this leaves you with 67 hours ($580@ $8.65/hr - time is money after all) you COULD be working. what is my point you are wondering? You are a lazy **** that likes to blame the rich for all of his problems, when in fact you are the only person to hold any blame. **** you, and have a wonderful life.
#2843 to #2841 - tonyromee (09/18/2012) [-]
Firstly, when I got the job, it was in Early may, and I was still in High School. I was hired at $7.50 an hour. Calculate that into your equation. I didn't get a raise until Mid-November, where I was bumped up to $8 an hour. I only got the $0.65 raise maybe two months ago. I was going to school 35 hours a week, and working 20-25. When I graduated in June, I started taking a few extra shifts, working about 30 hours a week. Around this time last year, tourist season picked up as football season began, and they needed me more and more. From October until March, I got overtime every single week. Of course, at $7.50 and $8 an hour, overtime isn't much, especially when it was only 4 or 5 hours of overtime each week.

For this Pay period, which ends Tomorrow, I will have clocked in right around 70 hours for the week, on top of me going to school 8 hours a day 4 days a week since mid-august. Also factor in that I have a 10 month old child that happened despite Birth Control Pills and Condoms, and I do not have very much down time.

8 hours of school 4 days a week, so 8*4=32

70 hours of work +32 hours of school=102

Factor in that I go to school 45 mins away from my house:

45*8(there and back)=360 mins, /60=6 hours of driving

108 hours so far.

Factor in sleep time at around 5 hours a day, so 5*7=35

108+35=143 hours.

I do a lot of studying via Audiobooks, usually while doing other tasks, but I do have textbook work and papers to write, so say another 10 hours a week doing that.

143+10=153 hours.

I work 10 mins from my house and 35 mins from school. about 3 days a week I go directly from school to work, and the remaining 2-3 days I work I leave from home. Let's round and say 90 mins of driving to work from school, and another 90 mins driving home from work, and to and from my house to and from work, making another 180 mins of driving, which is three hours.

156 hours of total occupied time, give or take ten. 168 hours in a week, minus 156 hours occupied leaves 12 hours a week I could be doing something other than what I am doing now.

But it's cool for you to assume I'm lazy as **** . It seems that a lot of people on the site are assuming so.

*edit. 70 hours for 2 weeks. subtract that, making it 47 hours a week before factoring in the baby, which I forgot to do in the comment. Assume I need to watch her 30 hours a week when Her mom or my friend cannot. I still only have 17 hours a week.

This group of people is given a plethora of welfare services (my favorite is a free cell phone, with unlimited texting) that leaves someone stuck paying the bill. Granted, I do agree with many welfare services. However these systems are largely broken and extremely abused.

As for blaming our current situation on Bush lol? You are undoubtedly one of the biggest fools I’ve had the displeasure of knowing. Our problems were caused by the Clinton era, not the Bush era. Although I do like Clinton for many policies, he made horrible mistakes. Such mistakes include NAFTA and forcing of banks to lend money to people they knew couldn’t pay back just so everyone could have house. Lol, yea we can clearly see how well that worked out (housing bubble, thus causing the major recession of 2008). Not only his, but Bush also had an all new type of war. But the most important thing we seem to neglect is the fact that the job rate was going up very well up until 2007 when the Democrats took the House and Senate 9refer to the picture to your left). Yet, Bush still raised out national debt 4.6 trillion dollars which is nothing to be proud of. This took him a grand total of 8 years, along with the help of NAFTA, the bubble, and the war. Within Obama’s first term, he has raised the debt 6 trillion dollars. Yup that’s right, our national debt is now at a whopping 16 trillion. If you honestly believe that won’t come back to hurt us, than you are truly naïve.

Listen, I could go on all day disproving your idiotic ideology. In fact, I’m two pages in and I have so much more to say. However, you’ve lost my interest. It only saddens me that people like you are what we call “college educated”. Welcome to a new era, where the self-entitled brats who have next to zero common sense are the ones who think their policies are the right ones. We’re so spoiled by our smart phones, big TV’s, nice communities that we completely forget to thank our ancestors for what we have. Instead we call for more, more, more.

P.S. I've decided to repost this for a 5th time considering OP is an arrogant little man. But mostly for knowledge.

Apparently we are the minority. I suppose our voices are just whispers at this point, but I just can't sit here and look at this crap without saying anything.

dude, you are far more eloquent than myself and I thank you for taking the time to type that all out. All we can do is give facts to other people and vote, then hope for the best

Thank you.



I'm going out on a limb here, ever hear about Gary Johnson?
User avatar #2716 to #2709 - joemand (09/16/2012) [-]
You're more than welcome my friend.

Lol, and yes I have. Although I don't know enough about Johnson to make any final decisions, I have heard many of his policies and I agree with them as well. It will be interesting to see if he gains anymore traction in this election.

The OP was making the point that Romney came from money and hasn't had to work like the lower class, and he's right. Romney has actually stated that he's not worried about the lower class... because they have "safety nets" in place. That's all fine and dandy... except there are massive holes in those safety nets through which many hard-working lower class citizens fall. Every tax plan I've seen from Romney and Ryan were the hardest on the lowest wage earners - these are not people who do not work, they are the lowest EARNERS.

The fact is, and always will be, Republicans will blame whatever Democratic presidents they can for our current financial situation, and Democrats will blame whatever Republican presidents they can for the same thing. You're reaching all the way back to Clinton for our current problems and he hasn't been president for 12 years, yet Reps are quick to say that Obama hasn't done anything because he hasn't managed to fix everything in 4 years.

Everyone believes what they believe and facts can be bent to accommodate any views, the only real difference is how much of an asshole you are in expressing them.

Just as a question for the sake of sharing understanding, how will the deficit come back to haunt us? I'm not doubting you, I legitimately don't know what process we'd have to undergo if we never make due on it.

All the people who are strongly supporting Obama do nothing but watch MSNBC and are completely biased.
All the people who are strongly supporting Romney do nothing but watch FOX and are also completely biased.
The only things they have in common is that a) they'll both say "I know how the other side works" when they really don't and b) they will never change.
Obama's ****** up, Romney is hopeless, there have been very few GOOD presidents in all history.
You're all a bunch of partisan ***** who get mad when someone disagrees with you so instead of having a reasonable conversation with people of the other side, you all get pissed off and whine like a bunch of babies.
If you were the politicians, you'd all be just as bad as the ones in office.

I haven't payed attention to politics much, but I will say that from the little I have paid attention to, Obama seems like a fairly good president. Considering the state of the US when he took office and the state it is in now, I think everything has improved significantly.

And maybe he isn't the best, but he's still far better than Romney.
User avatar #1758 to #1744 - ldemgyhas (09/16/2012) [-]
Things are better, but not good enough. He's ****** up. Can't be too pissed at him though, they all **** up. Significant improvement over Bush, but still not good enough. But it wouldn't be better with Romney, he'd manage to find a way to **** up too. They're all greedy. They don't give a **** about you.
User avatar #1769 to #1758 - satanisthesavior (09/16/2012) [-]
I disagree. The country is not perfect, but it's been four years. You can only achieve success so fast. Considering how far we've come, I think there has been a lot of improvement, and I would be willing to give my vote for Obama to give him four more years.
User avatar #1796 to #1769 - ldemgyhas (09/16/2012) [-]
You're right, he's only had 4 years, and he's not a miracle worker. And if I had to pick, I would vote for Obama.
But there's been a million times where he's missed opportunities to stand up to his opposition and show that he's a strong leader.
But Romney's had a million opportunities to disagree with some of the horrible things people on his side have said and shown that he's not a partisan robot, but he's missed them too.
My point is that while some are better than others, at the end of the day they all suck.
User avatar #1810 to #1796 - satanisthesavior (09/16/2012) [-]
But Obama clearly sucks less. Which, for the purposes of discussing the upcoming election candidates, makes him the best.

Besides, I imagine being the president is tough. Can't be on your toes all the time. And you can't always be aggressive. That **** would get us nowhere.
