Where in the bill of rights does it say the government is responsible for providing you your pursuit of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They only exist to protect your rights in you yourself pursuing those goals.
Let me explain something to pie in the sky liberals, When you make a case for socialism/communism no one gains except the most powerful. Look at the past 4 years.Look at the communist countries. As someone who lives week to week I have no intrest in speaking out for rich people, however I have been around long enough wo know how the real world works. What has happened since obama's war on the rich and greedy corporations? The gap between the haves and have nots has grown, why? Corporations have held back money, not hired or invested in foreign countries. So instead of obama being the Robin Hood he portrayed himself as, he is actually a shill for the greedy corporations who are raking in record profits and don't think that's not by design. He has succeeded in conning many by showing you one hand while the other is busy creating an empire that will control everything. If you think it's unfair now wait a few years and you will see what poverty really is.

You claim you have no interest in speaking out for rich people BUT what you post tells a different story. The ONLY thing President Obama did was role back SOME of the jrbush s***-the-richest tax policy - hardly a War on the Rich.
The reason Corporations are "holding back" has NOTHING to do with possible changes to the tax code. They are leery about putting money into the American economy BECAUSE OF THE HEDGE FUNDS.
Thanks to jrbush and the Repugs, those little gems are TOTALLY unregulated and they still hold TRILLIONS of dollars in worthless mortgage backed securities and other fictional investments they named "derivatives".
So far, the Banksters who collected billions in personal compensation for inventing those vaporous "investments" have avoided having to adjust their balance sheets to "mark to market" for all that worthless paper, and because it does not legally tie into any actual physical asset, they can continue this fiction indefinately...UNLESS people realize that those huge financial institutions are seriously INSOLVENT - having created huge and very real DEBTS that are offset by imaginary ASSETS- those derivatives Repugs legislated into existence 20 years ago.
Face reality - since 1980, EVERYTHING the Repugs have done was designed to redistribute Wealth from the middle class to the Uberrich. The Reagan tax cut allowed the Uberrich to live like Kings on 30% of their income, pay 15% for taxes and reinvest the remaining 65% so every year they got richer and richer.
Everything President Obama has done to "redress the balance" has been blocked or watered down BY REPUGS. It is a kind of evil genius that now has the Uberrich instructing their GOPer-dupes to wale and rant about how the coming disappearance of the middle class is BECAUSE OF DEMOCRATIC PROGRAMS that conceal some great conspiracy between the President and Wall Street.Fortunatily, this ruse is so transparent a lie, exposing it is a non-problem and the only ones buying the Reichwing rants are the Reichwing dupes.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the party that continues to take the posistion of anti corporation is not going to inspire them to do business here. You can make a case for a number of reasons including over regulation why corporations are holding back money and not hiring but the bottom line is this administration has had 4 plus years (2 of them with a super majority) and things have gone from bad to worse. No one has been held accountable for the alleged crimes leading up to the recession, corporations still holding back money raking in record profits, and many companies have laid off or cut hours as a direct result of obama's policies, That is a fact. His failed green policies have wasted billions of dollars, cost millions of jobs and put extra burden on the "poor" who struggle with energy costs. So anyone who defends his policies is either invested heavily into green stock or just clueless, there can be no other answer.
