Quote Of The Day

On taxes, the Democrat candidate favors a top tax rate of 39.8% and the Republican favors a top rate of 35%. Well ain't democracy grand. We get to debate a whole four and half percentage points. We better spread this system all over the world!

    Did you see John Stossel's full hour last night on 20/20. He pointed out
    that this whole election really doesn't matter. And to think that
    $1 billion is being spent on it.

    It was awesome to see so much of
    economist Walter E Williams.

    Honestly. Don't people realize that 4% of the income fro the top 1% of wage earner's income is a lot of money? That money is used to employee many people. Think of it. The rich are just like the middle class. They buy stuff. So, if Joe Millionaire wants to put a 500k addition on his mansion, which would employ a small army of workers, and now he doesn't have that 500k cause Uncle Sam took it, don't you think that army of workers will be affected? Exactly. Joe Millionaire may not put on the addition this year. People don't get this. They say take from the rich and give to the poor. Yeah... now all those workers who were going to build the addition are collecting checks from the government because they didn't get a contract for the job. What a joke. Anyway, let's hope that McCain can do half as good a job as Ron Paul would have done. Maybe I'll write in Chuck Baldwin.
