    If the middle class were killed off, who does Stahler think voted out the republicrats? The reality is – today’s republican party has more in common with Kennedy’s administration than with Lincoln’s.

    "Bagger"s just want a smaller government. Why is that crazy? You want crazy, look at how the new NYC mayor wants to shut down decent schools for the poor to help his union buddies.

    Seriously? Do you know just how much the next generation supercollider is going to cost?

    Unfortunately, this attitude yields both the best and the worst in us. This is the call to jihad.

    Democracy: two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.

    @Beleck3 – I don’t think the parties are differentiated on the basis of rich and poor – there are plenty of very very rich Demos. The real difference is that one party generally thinks what one has should be the product of what one earns, and the other thinks everything should be based on entitlements to what the government thinks you should have. Rich folks who inherited their wealth are more likely to think that than those who have had to earn their way to the top 1%.

    It’s the tall blade that gets mown down. Sometimes not being someone who adds to the world’s problems is a good thing.

    Cute idea. Too bad it doesn’t work.

    The real economic enslavement is just to be upper middle class and having to pay the tab for everyone else’s party, rich, poor, or the self-proclaimed aristocracy that manages to get themselves elected.

    I’m pretty sure the fisherman’s union will have something to say about all these scabs.
