NO. Quit trying to twist what has been written.DO YouKNOW HOW TO READ? I've told you more than oncethat CONSERVATIVES do not always agreeor endorse all of the same policies, plus it depends upon the times and situations of the economy.

Obviously no.


But NOW you say conservatives CAN be for higher taxes.

So.. Does that mean conservative have NO policy they agree on?

@parados,
I am conservative as is Herman Cain, and we favor the Fair Tax, which eliminates the income tax in favor of a retail sales tax.. I could also favor higher marginal income tax rates, if corporate and business tax rates were drastically reduced.

So name a conservative that is for higher marginal income tax rate and higher corporate tax rates.

You are confused. I don't know of any right now, but I think it is quite possible to find some THAT COULD FAVOR highermarginal rates on individuals together with lower rates on business and corporations. iN FACT, THE fAIR tAx would do that in practice.

Actually, okie, I have studied them.
And I'm just writing a longer report, may be a shorter book, about some features of that period. Helped to to get material for a rather well quoted exhibition recently.

If you want to libel me further on and if that helps you, carry on.
But I hope you don't mind that I consider you to be rather limited.

If it helps you understand, my dad was in the Pacific Theatre,an uncle survived NOrmandy on his way to Berlin, and I DID A tour in Vietnam. I GOT TO TO KNOW MORE THAN a few Vietnamese, both the n and more recently. You make a mistake to consIDER Me an uneducated country bumpkin from Oklahoma.

@okie,
I didn't write that above quote. (Actually, I can't remember when or if I ever wrote something about Vietnam here in the last ten years.)

So in other words, Obama is promoting a conservative tax policy.

No, absolutely not when you look at hi s policy in entirety. You continue to fail to comprehend what i am trying to explain to you. You use much obfuscation as you haqve always practiced here on A2K.

@okie,
What part of Eisenhower's tax policy was conservative?

It's funny how you think it's OK to just take parts of Hitler but don't take his actions into account but then you demand we look at Eisenhower's policy in it's entirety.

So.. what am I missing about Eisenhower? What made his tax policy conservative?

If you did not read what he said in his Saturday Evening Post article, you missed almost everything. Again, his tax policy rightafter the war had higher marginal rates, but that was a different economic time. I've told you all of this umpteen times but you continue to niggle on and on. Are you so thick headed that you cannot comprehend it? It took a Democrat, JFK, to see the logic of lowering marginal rates as part of a conservative tax policy to bring about big change. I am certain that Ike would not haveadvocated reversing that now.

If you look at the marginal tax rates since the turn of the last century and compare them to what the economy was doing, you'll see that there's relatively little correlation. The economy has boomed when they were high and when they were lower. It's tanked when they were high and when they were low. The truth is, the tax rate is just not that important to what the economy actually does. Other factors have been far more important. The last time it collapsed, for example, was after six years of Bush tax cuts, which is certainly a heavy duty counter example to you and Ike.

Okie, my fine feathered friend, it is you who is ignorant, and willfully so. I've given you much evidence that the US engages in, has engaged in war crimes and terrorism for well over a century and you simply ignore it.

That's lying on a grand scale and now that you are not ignorant of what the US has done, does, consider what that says about you.

You are simply so afraid of facts, Okie, that you have to use some excuse, any old excuse.

I'm actually very conservative, without the stupidity that is so common among many conservatives.
