Hate is an emotion that eats away your soul and does nothing to the one you hate. I disliked Obama, not as a man or Father, but as someone who felt this country needed to be reformed in his image. Never did hate him and actually voted for him the first time but some of you here need to get a handle on your absolute hatred of Trump (who I also dislike but as a person), perhaps some prayer or therapy, if you prefer, is in order. When you hate that strongly, you become irrational and tunnel visioned to an unhealthy extent

This is the stupid poop I was talking about earlier. Democrats are no more stupid than all the redneck, trailer park Republican voting for tax cuts for rich people in the hope that someday they will be rich and benefit from it. The same voters that get food stamps and talk about welfare reform

All those things you mentioned are not as dangerous as abolishing police.

Raising taxes doesn’t work either. Think about it. Business tax should really be under 10% that would really help with jobs. Help with wages bonuses etc. less tax burden means more jobs and money in the lower and middle classes pockets. Wouldn’t bother me if business tax was 0%

I don't think anyone will be abolishing police anywhere. I think you are confusing cutting excessive spending on law enforcement with getting rid of them. In my county we spend tens of thousands of dollars a year to fly helicopters to look for pot plants and make the teachers buy supplies for their class. We get new cop cars and military equipment for the local law but still use 40 year old buses to take kids to older schools. We got a new jail and courthouse but no new schools, see the problem?

Then why do you have some cities voting to abolish police?

Dude, it's already happening. Where have you been hiding? Wake up and see what our America is becoming.... They are cutting police officer's jobs everywhere.

This is the out of touch stuff that Trump won on. I received a tax cut beginning last year and I am not rich by any means.

Accept these businesses would still pay minimum wage and only send the extra cash into the upper echelons of the company. Its not a solution that works for lower or middle class workers.

a better option would be a tax reduction that stipulates X amount of tax break money has to go to employees wages and benefits.

For example Walmart instead of paying 6 billion in taxes only has to pay 3 billion. Of the 3 billion they are allowed to keep 60% must be returned to employees through better healthcare coverage, bonuses, or higher wages.

I can’t argue with that. Basically your saying the more businesses are willing to give to there employees the less tax burden they have. Seems fair to me

Would not work. Businesses would just keep it all as profit. Just look at what CEO's get right now.

So you feel the burn?
No I don’t think there should be a mandatory $15 minimum wage. But I believe in giving businesses as much of a break as possible if they can give it back to there employees. Hiring higher wage better benefits etc.

This forum would probably have a significant amount more members if it wasn't so one sided. The bitching and moaning about Democrats ruining the world and being the cause of all problems is sad. I know there is plenty of Trump hate here and around the country but hating one man isn't the same as hating half the country.
Its not moaning, its facts. Be who you are, as you may. I love the country. If I hated half of it, Id join you Dems and your marxist/socialist movement lol. Sorry friend/friends, but its time to call this movemnet out for what it is.
The Democratic Party in their core hate America and what it stands for and represents. No we havent been perfect. But because many of us beleive we are one nation under God. We always rise to the occasion and make this country the eye candy of the world.

All Democrats don’t agree with abolishing the police. Including the dem nominee and myself. That’s a gigantic strawman when you say ALL Democrats think that way or are guilty of the opinion if they support biden.
Going to be an interesting push to get voters out then. The Bernie/AOC portion of the Dems wants complete abolishment and probably won’t turn out for Biden if he doesn’t bow down to them.

Biden will sign anything that makes it to his desk by Democrats. Meaning it will be dangerously scary if Democrats control all chambers of Government!
