Perseverance of the Saints
When sarcastically referring someone to an "intellectual giant", I'd be extra sure you aren't casting stones out of a glass house.
You don't have to believe Biden, but math doesn't lie. That's the problem with you partisan hacks; you're incapable of looking at what people are saying because you don't like the person saying it. What business could you run that raises profits by lowering income? Answer me that question...
You know what all of the hullabaloo about the details of the tax plan and it being revenue neutral is all about don't you? All of this CBO projections stuff is straight up crap! No one on the stage cares a thing about whether it is revenue neutryal, they want Romney and Ryan to say that the other part of their plan is to gut the entitlements and lower spending.
I, for one, hope that they lower taxes 20% or better and take all of the deductions out...yes, all of them! Then, I hope that they cut federal spending by about 30% - make the government understand what it is like to operate on a revenue positive or at least neutral budget. The deficit and debt is killing our country! Who gives a flying fart whether the tax plan is revenue neutral? That type of thinking is not going to help us as it insinuates that spending can not be lowered. I know that slashing spending is not popular but I assure you that it is the fastest and most fool proof way to fix our economy and our fiscal government.
I am going to vote for Romney/Ryan but for God's sake, I wish that a real conservative would stand up!
Both sides will need to compromise on this. I know that's a bad word in Washington these days, but it's the truth. If we want to clear this deficit, we need to increase revenue and decrease spending. That means Republicans need to allow taxes to be raised where it's feasible, and Democrats need to allow cuts to be made to non-critical social programs. Acting like anything else is going to work is simply blowing smoke up the American people's asses.
Speaking of real conservatives, I know I've said this a dozen times, but it breaks my heart that Republicans didn't take Huntsman seriously. He is by far the best candidate I've seen come from either party since I've been following politics. If he had gotten the nomination, I'd be voting Republican next month...
With all due respect, I am sure he at least knows what a peer-reviewed journal looks like.

Are you for real? You’re the kind of guy who “knows” you can’t increase revenue by lowering prices! You’re the kind of guy who’d claim a heavier than air flying machine will never work because Physics doesn’t lie! Your ignorance when it comes to basic economics is downright scary, you increase revenue by increasing the tax base and growing the economy, you do both of those by cutting taxes on the job creators in America. By bashing on Romney you are indirectly supporting someone who thinks that you can fix the debt crisis through more stimulus and phantom savings by extrapolating two ended wars out for ten years and that paying a higher percentage in taxes than everyone else is still somehow less than a "fair share", give me a break.
