I think he's a dip shit. More tax cuts? With record deficits and a staggering debt? That's insane. Nobody ever tax cutted their debt away.
... and then there is the Republican mantra of, "No tax cut has ever added to the debt." They were throwing that around like it was the only lighter in a crack house last election. What a crock of shit.
I will give Ryan this: He went out on a limb by saying he would close tax loopholes. Almost everyone seems to know this needs to be done but Ryan he is the only one talking about it. Kudos to Paul Ryan. That is a truly conservative idea but not a Republican one. It breaks Grover Norquist's pledge that almost every Republican has taken. ... so on that level, I admire Ryan and respect what he said about creating a more evenly carried tax load.
Level the playing field. Make the system fair. Get out of the way of competition. If I believed anyone would do it, I would champion that person. I don't, however. I don't think Romney/Ryan will improve the financial situation and I don't think Obama/Biden will improve the financial situation. Not significantly.
tubby, I really want to see your country prosper. I would love to see the radicals pushed to the side where they belong and the political rift closed. You're almost at the point of civil war now. It's terrifying. If you could be one country again, unified, and find some prosperity, that would be a dream come true for me and a lot of people.
The United States of America has my best wish. You have a lot of great people and a beautiful country. This Hatfields and McCoys situation is ripping apart something great.
I absolutely agree everyone pays the same percent on income, no exceptions!
