    7. According my quick google research, the author of the quote is William J. H. Boetcker, not Lincoln.

      www.quotationspage.com/quote/29645.html

      (According to another page, it was Reagan who wrongly attributed it to Abe.)

      Pretty good quote nonetheless.

    8. Regardless, it is the complete and utter truth of a Deomcratic and Capitalist system, and the core of conservatism. We can no longer punish success and reward failure. Distribution of wealth is a system that has failed over and over again.

    9. Why hello there. I am a dirty socialist. So far, my fellow dirty socialists and I are doing just fine.

      Most of them are actually conservative republicans, but for some unorthodox reason, people agree that this system works.

      For instance, we had no bailouts. Life is sweet.

      @Paul_Is_Drunk: You know paul your sarcasm is not misplaced. I doubt the republicans would be any better and wouldn’t fuck things up as well. I am also not expecting the Obama to fix the world let alone our nation in two months. Although i can’t expect him to fix the nation BY USING MONEY WE DO NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR THE MONEY WE DIDN’T HAVE IN THE FIRST PLACE. Good god, i am not going to run up an 80,000 dollar credit card bill while my income is severely dented from a poor local economy and then take out a loan from another bank.

      Also, why isn’t any of this money going to small buisnesses? There are thousands of people who are losing their businesses. Meanwhile your buddy Barack is handing taxpayer and borrowed money to people who are getting FUCKING MILLIION DOLLAR BONUS CHECKS for companies that are capable of surviving the recession? That is pretty much a paraphrase of what senator Byron Dorgan ( D-ND )said. My opposition to obama has nothing to do with political affiliations. In fact i was really happy at his choice for attorney general. For the first time The DEA is finally backing the fuck off of medicinal cannabis users.

In two fucking months we are already over two trillion dollars in debt AND that is not counting when bush signed the initial bailout! Yeah it isn’t an obama specific issue, but you are fucking kidding yourself if you think he is making it better. This isn’t an argument of time this is an argument of policy. And nobody else seems to get that, they just automatically assume it is the republicans or conservatives acting like partisan jackasses.

I am a republican because i believe that no voice should go unheard no matter how small, and that the majority does not have the right to opress the minority on any issue of Race, Religion, sexual orientation. I am a democrat because i also believe that the minority does not have a right to oppress the majority for race, religion, or sexual orientation. I am a constitutionalist because I believe that in order for a republic to work we must not let men go mad with power. Every human is born with inalienable rights. the founders of the USA described them as god given rights.

      Seriously, though. We are letting some plunder from the public treasury at the expense of all.

      The more government we have the less free and prosperous we will be. The more we allow lobbyists of any special interest, whether they be for “such-and-such” rights, for a business to get ahead of their competition through a government-granted monopolies and subsidies, or for the powerful few to have more influence over lawmaking than the people who vote for elected officials, the deeper we slip into an Oligarchy and away from a Republic.

      So you have to be rich in order to agree with a philosophy that revolves around the rich? What. You’re like my teacher at the business academy. We had this discussion, who should earn the most money. The people who study for the most years, the people who do the hardest work, the people who have the most life threatening jobs, etc. Well a lot of us came to the conclusion that the people with the most life threatening jobs are the ones who should earn the most. You know what her answer was? “Well then what are you doing here at a business academy.”

      That’s not how it works. You can do one thing, and recognise the significance of another at the same time.

      Also, I’m pretty sure that the upper class have enough time to do whatever they want all day long.

      And I don’t even mess around here all day, I do it all night. Thank you very goddamn much.

    78. @SumoSnipe: Hey, we Transylvanian people are born like that. The whole suck people’s blood until they die thing is all made up though. We suck just long enough to make them feel all loopy.

      Loopy is such a great word.

    79. @dieAntagonista: Out of curiosity, Is there any particular reason to suck peeps blood until loopiness instead of death? Doesn’t that leave witnesses? Inquiring minds want to know…

    80. @Phyreblade: Haha. So what would you find more suspicious: A few confused people who look like they were bitten by some animal and they keep talking about “vampires”, or when several people go missing/ are found dead.

      Besides, if you don’t kill them, they are like walking blood donaters. Donater is not a word, is it. Well it is now.

    81. @dieAntagonista: Donor, but donater makes the point also. This is English, we make up words all the time.

    83. @dieAntagonista: Apparently you have been a very busy with the sucking, cause a lot of this thread seems pretty loopy.

    84. @dieAntagonista:
      The point isn’t who should make the most money, anyway, but whether the wealthy are being hurt by having to pay more taxes (as the quote by Lincoln implies). Because the wealthy have more opportunities to take advantage of the system, as they’re the ones with positions of political and economic influence, then most policies favor the rich and not the poor, so to ask the wealthy to take care of the poor with social programs only evens the playing field. So if you’re not rich, and you espouse a pro-rich policy, then you’re a fucknut with no sense, and you should go drown yourself in the nearest lake.
