We have responsibility for America, don't we? Certainly that's the job of our President, to protect and defend and promote America. And through conservative eyes America has been unfairly attacked by the Left for decades now....


Those leftists are Americans too. It is not presidential to vilify a large proportion of his own people.

... from what I have read so far is that the Koch Brothers contributed nothing to the Trump campaign, yet they are conservatives.

To paraphrase: Even a conservative doesn't have to be an idiot.

... simply planning to tax the rich and *make* them pay their *fair share* is unrealistic---they will always find ways to escape that if they so choose.


Which is why I don't advocate taxing the rich. We should be trying to restrict how much the rich can steal rather than trying to tax it back from them. The working people should pay the taxes and collect the benefits. We need to improve their situation so they can afford to do it without the "philanthropy" of the rich.

Don't they get rich by producing something they are able to sell to huge numbers of people?


They could reduce the price and make only as much as the workers who actually produce the product.

What an amazing bunch of non sequiturs.


That's a non sequitur. If you have a rebuttal, post it.
