lefthanded guitar BS: George McGovern Open Letter to Obama. (9) RE: BS: George McGovern Open Letter to Obama. 29 Aug 11

Butter vs. guns is an oft trod subjects by liberal thinkers. But the truth is, we need a strong defense. I usually line up on the side of more progressive thinkers, but at this approaching anniversary of 9/11, I can't help but be glad we've had one.

The one thing (I personally believe) that can really make a dent in our national debt, perhaps jumpstart our economy a bit, and relieve the working (and middle and lower) class of draconian budgets cuts is to raise the taxes on our wealthiest citizens. Some people say the rich are ALWAYS exempt, but I think it's time they kick in as well.

Otherwise this democratic republic is heading back to before the tea party and becoming a nation that is controlled under a royal family of wealthy rulers.

I also am disappointed in Obama (tho I think the alternative would have not been any improvement.) He just doesn't seem to be tough or politically saavy enough to fight congress. Maybe no one could have. But I don't know.
