    You can't beat me in debate because you are on the wrong side. It is to be on the wrong side of history to tax the rich that is why the rich leave whole countries or regions and go somewhere else with their money kind of like you when you see that a store is too expensive and you can get more products for your money at another store. What I just showed you is how to compare the macro with the micro. Go run away, now. I give you permission. Just insult like a little kid that has lost.

    You need to stop watching rhetorical movies, and read history from primary sources for a change. Are you delusional? You mixed the names, you mean Carter instead of Reagan's policies were the worst since the great depression and what we have now. Regan helped bring down the evil empire. What happened when President Kennedy helped bring down the tax rates in this country? After President Reagan what happened when President Clinton (New Democrat) changed welfare.Stop getting your info from movies.

    Capability yes, patience no.

    LOL Not Reagan's economic policies. Our international commodities lost competitiveness globally, it is considered the worst economic crisis between the great depression and the 08 financial crisis. Weak dollar.

    Hopefully you have the capability to discuss an issue without your juvenile tactics. Remember just because we are on different sides of this issue does not mean that we disagree on others. If you could recall what happened after the 50's and 60's that led this country to prosperity? Hint it was on a global scale, and it was not taxes.

    Just go look at the income tax rates of the 50s and 60s, the most prosperous times in US history, not too difficult to figure out you are wrong on taxes.
    What if we lower taxes on the rich they are going to reward us with more investments into our nation's economy and industries? Of course not. The rich are going to invest and spend money whether they have high taxes rates or not.
    You are so far behind on this issue, I suggest do your homework.

    How interesting are you from main land China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, or are you a Chinese American? However, getting back to our original topic, do you agree with a mixed economic system similar to what there is in the United States? You do know that the United States is not a pure economic system. I am interested in finding out your thoughts thank you.

    You may have a good argument. How about democratic socialism countries like Sweden or France? They enjoy high level of freedom with a relatively small income gap. Should America learn something from them? My guess is Yes. And yes I am Chinese.

    Please back your empty example by specific proof. Taxation kills wealth, but you cannot back your claim........can you? I would love to have an intelligent conversation with you but you are not doing a good job yet. Good luck, and thank you.

    Of course he doesn't care about the country. He cares about maintaining the status quo, which keeps him and his fellow statists in power, and he seeks to increase the scope of that power, as we have seen in recent history. The same goes for most politicians in Washington and there are very few exceptions. Ron Paul is an exception. But he's not in the government any more, so there's automatically a lot less conscience within said government.

    Do you think Obama really cares about the country? He just wants to go on vacations, and give speeches of how great, & full of himself he really is.

    So, it is great that you like to pick grapes, or work on a farm. If there was socialism I would just not work as much. Why would I? You would try to take it away. I would just produce less. Socialism is inefficient.

    You are not giving a deep thought to what your stance. The problem with your analogy is that it is not freedom. It is a dictatorship stance that the end result impoverishes a people. I should have the freedom to contract and negotiate my skills and time without you telling me how to do it. The macro system is much more complex than what you are pointing out. The result will be more of the same garbage we have been getting up to this point more jobs to China. Are you Chinese?

    Well that's your philosophy. I respect that. However, I still believe that government should be responsible for having a taxation/welfare system that help balancing wealth. I personally believe that income gap should be 10 times, maximum, CEO to minimum wage. Nowadays are 1 million times, maybe.

    No they don't. Gov't needs to stop getting in the way of the private sector. Stop raising taxes and STOP spending money. NO more money to green losers i.e. Solyndra 500 million and that is just one of many green wastelands.

    What you call capitalism (ugly at the top level) is called coorporatism. Capitalism, in its pure form, does not allow for corruption. It is your socialism+coorporatism combination that sows the seeds for corruption. In truth, we do not have capitalism anywhere.
    I'm 100% behind you on criminalizing usury, though I'm not too sure about central banking, as long as it is owned by the people and 100% transparent.
    What is truly sad is that those who would vote for Ron Paul didn't, as he "couldn't win"

    Yes, but there are almost no people in the western world that can rely solely on them selves, most of us work for someone else and all of us work for the banking cartel eventually. While capitalism is this ugly at the top level, we need socialism to counter it. It´s not helping much longer though, the middle class is shrinking.
    Central banking should be illegal and money as debt too.

    It´s such a shame Ron Paul didn´t win, It would have been a major showdown with him against Obama in the debates

    Wealth is generated every time someone plants, grows and harvests crops, or everytime someone makes a tool or part out of raw resources and combines it with other parts to make a whole.
    Wealth in no way requires other people at all, though they can be used as a basis for comparison.
    As for state-administered welfare, the state is first and foremost a monopoly on violence - why even tolerate its existence? The only difference between the state and any other mafia is that it is "official."

    Don´t be too happy :)
    There are alot of downsides to socialism. I live in Denmark and it´s very easy to be a social benefits leech here.
    I would like to see a more liberty based society, with a healthy capitalism and basic safety socialism. Much less government and global policies and economy along the lines of Ron Paul.
    I wish he was younger and could run again and again.

    I hope Dennish Kucinich will run in 2016. We need to get this global elite nightmare out of the world.
