    This guy is covering all basis. He went from going door to door in OH to a crowd of over 100K under the arches of the traditionally red turf of MO which is a new predidential record.

    This Magic Moment. :1_grouphug:

    Just a thought but maybe McCain doesn't draw such big crowds because his supporters have to work?

    You going to stick to that story? McCain Palin has about 20K a few days ago in FL. They were energetic through Palin's complete speech but about 50% were gone by the time McCain finished. You could be right, maybe they all had to rush back to work.

    However I don't like the implication that liberals don't work...

    Actually I was implying that socialists and their faithful followers would rather harvest the fruits of other's labor than fend for themselves.

    If you mean taxes then you are 100% correct. All Obama has said he would do is raise the top 5% taxes by 3%. I don't think that's socialism and it doesn't bother me cuz I'm not close to that bracket.

    Socialism is using the power of the state (force) to unconstitutionally coerce 845 billion dollars out of U.S. taxpayers to "feed the poor" (foreign aid) in countries impoverished in part by the policies of transnational corporations and global orgs like the IMF and World Bank. And this from someome who claims to be a "constitutional lawyer"? Who do you think is going to pay for all that in higher taxes? You and me brother.

    Has Obama mentioned how he's going to cut the inflation tax that effects every American in every bracket? Yes as a matter of fact he has, not with words but with action. He voted to increase it into hyperdrive along with John McCain and the rest of congress.

    Kind of, he also said he would cut taxes for the lower 95% of workers.

    The top 5% will see a 3% increase.

    Then he's talking out of both sides of his mouth. He just voted to increase the inflation tax that affects 100% of workers nationwide. Once the value of the fiat currency is eaten away even more by the inflation tax he just voted for his tax cuts in other areas will be meaningless.

    I'll just remind everyone Bush #1 promised no new taxes....

    Clinton was elected TWICE by promising to cut taxes, he too raised them....

    Washington does not like to do with less.

    Best way to reduce taxes is to reduce government and the best way to increase taxes is to increase government. I'm only guessing here but I'd have to say neither Obama or McCain is going to reduce government.

    I recall his very dramatic speech, "READ MY LIPS, NO NEW TAXES!!!".

    At least that is what this non-lip reader that he said... :laugh: :wavey:

    I am all for this, I think there is much government fat that should be cut. When I first checked out Obama Senate site I noticed he has 4 offices in his district. As I looked around I saw some Senators had more. What a waste? Since when is one office not good enough?

    Maybe we should start a new thread listing all the government stuff we see that should be cut? May we'll finally agree on something.
