Conservatives think the average citizen is not smart or engaged in what's happening around them. On the contrary, we are becoming very aware of how they've been pulling the wool over our heads. We are recalling times and events in history past that proves there maniacal agendas, that have brought us to all the news headlines we read and hear nearly every other day now. To prove my point, here's what a local person wrote in our hometown news paper (The Commercial Appeal) regarding air traffic controllers...you can guess where this will lead back to...
You need a well paid labor force to have consumers who can afford to buy. Without that, the so called entrepreurial job creators have no

They were protesting BofA paying no income tax, forgetting along the way that the bank LOST over 2 billion dollars last year!

Not to mention BofA paid over 2 billion in payroll taxes, SS contributions, etc...
What is the rational for the democratic/progressive belief that the rich should pay more with respect to taxes? I think they should because they owe the most to the country because they are successful but I’m having a hard time articulating this to my conservative friends. Can anyone elaborate for me

Congress' compromise budget to fund the government until October would temporarily halt an Interior Department effort to protect roadless areas in a shock for conservationists who'd fought to retain the three-month-old program.
The US Constitution includes a requirement of republican governments in Article Four, Section Four as copied below. Would this clause prevent the imposition of the Michigan law to allow for unilateral (and therefore not republican) to usurp the local government?
