For the last few years I have watched as our country has become more and more divided along idealogical lines. IMHO, this division is not likely to reverse itself, but rather, will likely grow even stronger in the coming years. It seems that the residents of "red" states can't or won't tolerate those of "blue" states and vice versa. Consequently, nothing gets done to help the country with it's problems and every time you see an elected representative on TV, all you get is either left or right rhettoric. Personaly, I am now at ease with separating our country into two separate parts.
Everyone could get a vote on how to "redistrict" the country. We can vote to divide the country with a line drawn from north to south or from east to west.
This could help to appease even the staunchest of those on the left or right. Perhaps, we can get King Bob to start a petition to get this ball rolling? Then perhaps...we can all live in our own little paradises.
Are you for real, or is this simply a way for you to draw attention to yourself.
Looking at your previous post on this board, it appears to be the later.
Perhaps you to should consider moving elsewhere, where you have no voice, no choice, or NO VOTE.
Listen up Dickie. I have as much right to post my thoughts as you or anyone else does. I needn't think too long about where your thoughts come from.
Like I said in my original post...the division between people in this country has reached an all time high (or rather low) and I am of the opinion that it would be better to split the country in half and let those who feel likewise live on one side and those who believe otherwise, on the other. If you think I was going for some kind of self recognition, then you are exactly the type of person which prompted me to write the post in the first place!
No vote? I vote and will continue to vote and hopefully a whole lotta people will get out to vote in November. This country has a LOT of problems and continuing to give tax breaks to oil companies, while cutting social safety nets is not something I will vote for. So unless you have something useful to add to this thread, go fly a kite!
Your right, you people that think unemployment benefits creates jobs and misunderstanding taxes need to go elsewhere.

You dont need to school me on job creation. The ONLY thing that creates jobs is consumer demand. The social safety net I was referring to was not only unemployment comp. It is food stamps, pre-school, social security, medicare & medicaid. It damn sure isnt...tax breaks for wealthy corporations.
Do some research and you will find that many industries have lobbied and gained tax breaks at varying levels. They range by industry, from 3.9% up to 27%. I suppose you believe this is ok, but I dont. BTW...when a person loses their job, you seem to imply it is wrong to allow them unemployment compensation till they can find a new one. Dont tell me...let me guess...They are all lazy takers and they deserve whatever they get. Hopefully that wont happen to you or anyone in your family, because then you might change the way you feel.
