HolyGod- "We shouldn`t have a country where some people have more money than they could ever spend while others starve to death."

The problem is that you start limiting what some people can earn, that $13.5 trillion in total income would become $10.5 trillion....then $8.5 trillion...etc.

It`s not a zero sum game. You limit what people are able to make doesn`t spread the rest around, it limits the total sum as much wealth then never gets created. It`s not a static sum.

HolyGod- "Democrats want to raise taxes a bit to help people more."

No, they want to raise taxes to punish some, and bribe others. (most, but not all)

HolyGod- "Republicans want to lower taxes more."

Most, but not all, realize that we are already taxed too much. That the government is wasting alot, and currupt with alot. If we eliminated waste and corruption, we could cut taxes and still fund everything that NEEDED funding.

"Whereas I consider communism a bad idea in both theory and practice."

There are 155 million Americans in the labor force.
The total income in America is around $13.5 trillion.
That means if you put everyone`s paycheck into a pot and divided it equally everyone would make $87,000 a year.

I am in NO WAY saying I want that. I don`t think garbage men and janitors should make as much as doctors and lawyers. I certainly wouldn`t want to kill myself 18 hours a day 7 days a week for the same reward as someone who flips burgers 40 hours.

I only mention it to show that there is PLENTY of wealth being generated in this country for everyone to be able to have a reasonable life.

We shouldn`t have a country where some people have more money than they could ever spend while others starve to death.

Democrats want to raise taxes a bit to help people more. Republicans want to lower taxes more. That`s all I meant.

HolyGod-"I feel the democrats at least TRY in some regard to get closer to that."

Whereas I consider communism a bad idea in both theory and practice.

And what (most) democrats TRY to do could not be considered neither, nor even close to either.

"Actually, Holygod, I pretty much agree with that.
And, I`ll be the first to admit to being a Cynic (even to being a Cynical non-nice individual at times). But it`s more acurately described as `Realist`."

I appreciate that. I`m glad you were the first conservative to respond to that statement and realize what I intended to say.

I`m a cynic as well. I know true communism (NOT A BAD IDEA IN THEORY) will never work because of basic human nature. However, I feel obligated to do what I can to get as close as possible to a world where everyone has enough.

I feel the democrats at least TRY in some regard to get closer to that.

HolyGod-" The liberal worldview is simply the best view for society in theory. However, the debate can be made that it is not the most realistic view and therefore the conservative view is best. Intellectuals tend to focus on theory and what may be possible."

"You took two people from a group composed of how many?"

I picked two I thought you may have actually heard of. Not too many intellectuals make it into internet meme pictures.

"There`s this side called moderate that neither side seems to thinks exsists yet possesses the logic and reasoning to take both sides of the argument and then think for themselves what they think is right. You sheep should try it sometime...."

So you are a moderate that thinks for himself and I am a sheep? Precious.

Maybe you shouldn`t speak in relative absolutes as to the thoughts and motivations behind the political views of a group I`m quite certain you have never been a part of and have no association with.

I have friends in academia. I can promise you "unions" couldn`t matter to them any less, let alone drive their entire political view.

So steven hawking and neil degrasse tyson are liberals because of unions? A bit simplistic, no? [/quote]

"it`s called unions main reason"

So steven hawking and neil degrasse tyson are liberals because of unions? A bit simplistic, no?

I think it works most like this:

The liberal worldview is simply the best view for society in theory.

However, the debate can be made that it is not the most realistic view and therefore the conservative view is best.

Intellectuals tend to focus on theory and what may be possible.

Scientists, Professors, Teachers, College Students it`s called unions main reason but that isn`t exactly accurate many think for themselves.

While College Students again not true but while in college they tend to follow what`s spewed at them constantly then the go into the real world and......

Facts are the cure to statism, simple as that. Even liberals are guilty of distorting the facts to fit their worldview. Just look at gun control, welfare, and Obamacare.

@5Cats ~ We already know what the cure for Conservatism is: Facts.

Problem is you can`t get a conservative to acknowledge a fact even when their life depends on it.
So what good is a cure that the sick phuques like you refuse to take.

There`s a reason most Scientists, Professors, Teachers, College Students, and other intellectuals are Liberal.

And there`s a reason most hicks, rednecks, bigots, and greedy CEO`s, bankers and Wall Street Traders are Conservative.

Sorry, but Progressive is ALWAYS preferable to Regressive.

@HolyGod: Perhaps some day? They`ll find a cure for liberalism! Current treatments of "large doses of reality" aren`t working as well as they used to!

Joking, you know?

You do know that most art, TV, movies, and music come from liberals right? Plus a majority of literature, journalism, science, and invention?

Not everything is political.
