coz,

How is raising the minimum wage socialist? The argument I have heard for that centers around the fact that raising the minimum wage will necessitate that small businesses let a lot of their employees go, creating lots more unemployed people on welfare, so thus raising the minimum wage is socialist.

This argument fails to take into account however that the only reason small businesses will be in this predicament is because they all have to pay an outrageous tax rate, meanwhile all the big corporations with their outrageously costly teams of lawyers and overly compensated management get big tax breaks i.e. social welfare, socialism, and in turn are the direct cause of the necessity for welfare since they insist on paying their employees not enough, despite the coffers overflowing with money. Talk about bleeding the middle class dry. Add to that the banking scandals and the housing crisis and...

A proper tax structure, in addition to a reasonable minimum wage, is what this country needs.

Given that, why are conservatives not filling the e-mail boxes of their elected representatives to get them to do things like not shut down the government so we don't have to reform the tax code.

I would really love to hear your mind on this coz since you seem like a reasonable guy capable of having an actual civil conversation, unlike so many here :).

This whole stupid right or wrong, left or right argument is a facade for the real criminal behavior going on right under everyones nose, but even you guys refuse to wake up.

This is the conversation we need to be having, and these dorks need to be exposed, but you're worried about, global warming, gay marriage, abortion, health care. Smoke screen people, those things will sort themselves out.

In your own words COZ...

Political conflicts with totalitarians are a cultural war. The totalitarians employ every cultural, political and economic element that they can against their enemies. They follow only those laws that are convenient meanwhile they multiply laws to pin down their opponents. They define entire elements of the population that they hope to dismpower or destroy, whether it's the Copts in Egypt or the private sector middle class in the United States, and execute their plans.

Resisting totalitarians cannot simply be an electoral activity. In a system of democratic political elections, the ballot box becomes the weakest element in defying totalitarians who can always find ways to buy elections, steal elections or convince the people that if they don't vote the wrong way then the sky will fall and the oceans will rise. Those who follow no laws have many options; those who follow them have only a few.

The electoral wars matter, but the totalitarians have to be fought for control of every institutions and defied at every point of control. It's not enough to win an election, their ideas have to be discredited. It's not enough to swap out politicians when entire institutions have to be swapped out. The core solution isn't political; it's personal. It's in how we live.

If the Democratic Party continues to function as a radical leftist party, abiding by no laws, imposing radical change unilaterally, and using its media to cover for its corruption and political sins, the United States will face a Venezuelan or Egyptian scenario.


TGT, I laugh at you for believing this nonsense.

Times should be pretty good for all of you wealthy Conservatives.

Since Obama got elected: the last years have been the best income-producing years of my life.

Are you Republicans bitching, while snickering, about all the money Obama has made you?

Or should you be voting for Democrats?

What's this "your" crap. Haven't you lived here for eons? Don't you have American citizenship? You are as much part of the "your" as everyone else.

Haven't read any intelligent posts from you on any of the political threads, and your statement about the media reads like you know something that others don't.

Holy shit! The media isn't doing its job and colludes with government and big business to feed the masses a line of bullsh#t. Stop the presses! Who would have guessed?

Thanks for the tip Capitan Obvious.

P.S. I have also met your cousin, Lieutenant No-Sh#t-Sherlock-I-Already-Knew-That. Nice guy. Much less gruff and bitter than you.
