    • The Trickle Down Theory has been tried several times.....it has never worked
      5 examples
      1-English Empire---late 1700's
      2-Stalin's USSR----1920's-1930's
      3-The USA ----1920's
      4- Bismark/Hitler Germany---late 1920's & 1930's
      5-USA ---1980-to present(Clinton & Obama curbed it back but its still the cause of the current weak economy)

    • The trickle down theory reminds me of a light rain falling on a roof. Before if can trickle to the gutter it evaporates.

    • Also consider the United States of America until the Great Prevaricator convinced many yokels they wouldn't have to pay for his tax giveaways to the top 1%. The Prevaricator never fooled good Democrats like Archie Bunker and me.

      • "Also consider the United States of America until the Great Prevaricator convinced many yokels they wouldn't have to pay for his tax giveaways to the top 1%."

        The messiah's theft from SS, along with those tax cuts for 95% of working families, did help the rich get richer than ever while helping to run up the five highest deficits in American history. Albeit any attempt to "fool" a Libocrit is redundant...

        "“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents -- number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back -- $30,000 for every man, woman and child,” Obama said on July 3, 2008, at a campaign event in Fargo, N.D.

        “That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic,” said candidate Obama."

    • "If you are undecided consider Mexico."

      It appears many are considering it as an alternative to being stimulated with food stamps...

      "Americans now make up more than three-quarters of Mexico’s roughly one million documented foreigners, up from around two-thirds in 2000, leading to a historic milestone: more Americans have been added to the population of Mexico over the past few years than Mexicans have been added to the population of the United States, according to government data in both nations. (Source: NYT, For Migrants, New Land of Opportunity Is Mexico, September 21, 2013)"
