Two GOP economic myths debunked

First, it's a myth that 47% of Americans don't pay taxes- 86% do, it's just that it isn't all federal income tax. Which led me to ask, are there any other crony capitalist myths used by the GOP to get social conservatives like myself to vote for billionaires? Turns out there's no job creation in the 10 years of Bush tax cuts, which means trickle down economics no longer works.

Liberty Abused

A very interesting article today in the Washington Examiner- showing the strong link between rich neo-conservative libertarian capitalists, and same-sex marriage. It appears that homosexual liberals in New York State, have rich Wall Street Republicans to thank for putting the money behind their movement, that overruled the people (after all, when you put same-sex marriage to the popular vote, it always fails) and bought several legislators to get it passed.

This explains why many conservative Catholics in the New York Legislature voted for same-sex marriage. This explains why the right to private property so often seems abused on Wall Street. This is why our religious liberty is being abused- because certain people at the top believe freedom and liberty means the right to do whatever they want, regardless of who else it hurts. This is liberty, abused. No different than abusing cocaine.

I've done it again

What will it take to prove to Those who worship capitalism that maybe, just maybe, Christ wanted something better for us? That maybe, just maybe, Christ wanted a system where the POOR rule, and the RICH can choose between political power and money but not both?

I've gotten kicked off the Acton Institute Powerblog because they have no faith in Christ, only faith in Capitalism.
