Obama is at an all time low in the popularity ratings and his attempted policy ploys are already set to fail ........

In the game that is the see-saw of a farcical screen play called democracy, Obama has called for higher taxation on those who earn a million plus in wages ........

He does this knowing two things ..........

1) It will be popular with the proles .........

And ........

2) Knowing it will never get past the opposition Republicans  ........


A singularly stupid government system that uses the proles own fidimplicity to support two parties that work against the very thing it is designed for  .............

Of the people, for the people and by the people ..............

I share your point - I also believe the system of local governments in the USA is much better than the democracy system of the central government. In local governments, people can stop the governor's decision and introduce new laws themselves - thus, people are much more powerful and can control their politicians. In Washington, however, the "checks and balances" became much more a sysytem of "checks and freezes".

So I guess the best way for America to get rid of this issue would be to give people more democratic rights, make America a real domocracy - and not just a two-party dictator ship.

You can hahahahaha all you want, but it does not change the fact that the rivalry between party politics and reality for the American people is not what is in the interests of the American public ..................

The only interest is for the politicians to have see-saw power  ...........

You might find that opening your eyes could help you a little ........

Oh .........

You might want to think about it as well ........

That might also help a little  ............

, you missed the point.

Obama new tax did not seek to tax the rich a higher rate than the rest.

It seeks to redress some peculiarity so that the rich pays at a tax rate that is closer to what is paid by the middle class.




as for China, dont even dream.

China's rich is practically exempt.

that is because China is queen bee territory.

There is no doubt that the concept of democracy on paper is a wonderful thing .........

But as you rightly say ........

The two-party king game does not relate to the wishes or needs of the people .........

How many Americans do not wish to be in Iraq or Afghanistan ....... ?

Of the hundred or so I have met in China  ........

None .............

I agree .............

But you missed the point ............

The fact that it will not get past the senate shows it to be nothing more than a ploy to gain popularity ........

It does nothing to address the real issues as it is a 'dead-duck' before its starts and Obama knows that .........

The same as all the Health Care bills ..........

They are dead in the water before they start ..............
