> The most telling polling result from the 2000 election was from a Time magazine survey that asked people if they are in the top 1 percent of earners. Nineteen percent of Americans say they are in the richest 1 percent.

I have seen this before and found it to be genuinely funny. It tells you something about the people who were surveyed. I have never had anything against someone who can make a buck$ but I don't like people who do it at someone elses expense. My problem is I am a laissez faire capitalist which entails making your own money, competing and doing what you do better, I have never had much regard for those who pervert effective capitalism with dirty tricks, buddies in government and the like. That ends up being a flavour of fascism although it tends to get dressed up as jingo capitalism.

that tells me that the 19% are idiots - lol
people who are in the top 1% "aren't available" to be surveyed

just goes to show - you don't have to be smart to be wealthy
it's more a matter of moral values
the wealthier you are, the lower your standards

Well the presidential election is all but over. President Obama is certain to be elected to a second term. Mitt Romney has chosen Paul Ryan as his VP running mate. Not only has Romney lost the Middle-Class voter, the Hispanic voter, the African American voter, the Women voter, he has now lost the Independent voter. 

It seems clear that the Romney-Ryan ticket will focus on the Ryan plan which is likely to double President Obama’s lead in the polls. Ryan’s budget plans would have an impact on the most vulnerable here in the US which could add significant gains to President Obama’s re-election when the voters hear specific details about how the Ryan budget would affect Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, education, the poor, and the elderly.

Romney-Ryan, yes sir, it’s the rich voter's dream ticket!

"Path to Prosperity?" For Many Senior Citizens, VP Pick Ryan's Plan Would Be Path to the Poorhouse

"46.1 percent of Americans are now dying with less than $10,000" - impressive! And how much does their funeral cost?

For Germany, they found out that 28% lie below 25,000€ (30,000$)... not much better, actually ::)

Yes, not much better and all things considered: that's a scandal.

What is Romney hiding ?
Maybe or probably his swiss bank account and his tax flight.
If he will be the next president in the US, the swiss UBS wil applause ...

A little bitter satire: http://romneygirl.org/

you know that since a few years the best place for illegal earnings isn't Switzerland, but Delaware. Interesting, isn't it?

as i recall, Delaware has rather lenient tax laws for businesses - as do many of the New England states
many businesses have their fiscal headquarters there, even though the actual brick-and-mortar is elsewhere

What I would give to punch that pussy Paul Ryan in the face. What an ass!! There was no reason for this to happen.

Listen to the remark he makes about a concerned frightened 71 year old voter who wanted to question Ryan about SS and Medicare.

Bill,I would love to believe that President Obama is a shoe in,but I can't forget just how stupid some voters can be.  I watched something Bill Maher did a video down south talking to VERY poor folks,one guy stood out..He was living it what could only be described as a shotgun shack,or a pile of wood barely able to stay upright. He had perhaps 3 teeth in his mouth,and was on Government assistance and food stamps,and was republican and railed against all the "Moochers" sucking Gov money. When asked about his food stamps he replied "BUT I DESERVE IT"..I really hope he doesn't vote,but really I am not even sure he can read.

anunitu,

You are right about that, any American voter who reads Matt Taibbi’s story on the life of Mitt Romney and how he made his fortune and yet votes for this greedy son-of-a-bitch is indeed nothing more then a moron!

Quote
Obama ran on "change" in 2008, but Mitt Romney represents a far more real and seismic shift in the American landscape. Romney is the frontman and apostle of an economic revolution, in which transactions are manufactured instead of products, wealth is generated without accompanying prosperity, and Cayman Islands partnerships are lovingly erected and nurtured while American communities fall apart. The entire purpose of the business model that Romney helped pioneer is to move money into the archipelago from the places outside it, using massive amounts of taxpayer-subsidized debt to enrich a handful of billionaires.

Interesting is that:

Those actions erased much of the internal documentation of Romney's four-year tenure as governor, which ended in January 2007. Precisely what information was erased is unclear.

Hi Gunther,

Romney does seem to have a need to hide things that would be important to the public in evaluating him for the presidency. Fortunately it’s looking more and more like his chances of becoming president are fading the closer we get to the election. The guys a toad and hopefully the coming debates will show just what kind of toad he is.

Romney/Ryan = Losers!! :icon13:

Where's clive hiding? Come on clive, you can't really be backing these two losers can you?? :biggrin:
