easyed598:  1. Abolish Capitalism and replace it with Socialism

 

Really easyed.......where do you get this wacky stuff? You state something totally crazy as if it's fact, so you surely can back it up with some proof? Credible proof, not something from Hannity or Alex Jones. LOL

ps....I only used number 1 to respond to, but the rest of the post was just as nutty, so proof for any of the wild statements will be appreciated.

Instead, their method would be to raise taxes on those paying the most (already) and give credits or refunds to those already paying the least or NOTHING! @NOTHAPPENING...........I will never be able to understand this thinking. Makes no sense. Seems to be getting worse as the takers numbers increase. Seems to be taught in the homes, schools and God knows where else.

That philosophy is deeply ingrained in Democrats. They think they are entitled to YOUR money and the way it's spent. Part of it is taught in schools now.

Reagan was in office 30 years ago, there has been two Democratic presidents since then.  How come they didn't do anything to correct his 'taxscam'?

 

And as our standard of living has improved, so has the cost of living.  Why is it that our children helped pay their way to a college education but others can't?  We didn't have that kind of money to give them a free ride. 

 

Why does liberals continually want Uncle Sam to give them everything free?

@Epster.......As the parent of a 40's something son, I have beaten myself up from time to time for spoiling him and keep remembering what a great Basketball Coach told me. He told me to stop trying to give him so many material things, that all I OWED him was my love. I am thankful that he stands on his own in spite of my Mom skills.

I think I find it almost unbelievable that people in a group of senior adults would think there should be a free ride. I must be much older than most here. I see so much tunnel vision where people keep throwing out what they see as problems, but when asked about their thoughts on a solution, they come back with a response to degrade Trump and raise Obama's throne higher.

I have said I come here for entertainment and I stand by that statement no matter how loud some hollar that I don't see what is important to them. If I tried to take this seriously, I would have constant heartburn.

For 40 years, Americans' standard of living constantly improved because we were able to provide more and more things to more and more people - that's what "standard of living" is all about.

 

Then Republicans realized people already had so much, they could take a bunch away and give the money to their GOPerLords instead, and the lofo's in their base would accept it as somehow making them more 'FREE" even though they would be "FREE" from things like good roads, excellent public schools, affordable college and safe streets.

 

So they took all those things and hundreds more and replaced it with wild rantings about how you have to do with what you and only you can acquire or you're a commie, how The Poor are taking all the money, how women and minorities are taking all the good jobs and how the only way to save Social Secutiry is to make people who need it pay more, work longer and receive much less.

 

To pay for a semester of college BEFORE the Reagan Taxscam stopped Revenu Sharing that supported higher education, Tuition cost $240 and room and board cost $800. The minimum wage was $1.25/hr and a summer job would cover your basic expenses. Why are your grandkids "FREE" because they have to pay ten times more when the minimum wage only increased 6?

 

 


So much in there - let's concentrate on college education. First - what percentage of college education do you think the feds payed under revenue sharing?

 

Second, look at the below and note the date (revenue sharing ended 30 years ago) - what happened?
