Will the GOP rise to the occassion and teach the public and the Dems why cutting taxes including the regulatory burden that creates invisible taxes works? Will the GOP embrace the free market again?

At the moment I would settle permanently ending all discussion on whether corporations "pay" taxes. The do not. To suppose otherwise is to demonstrate that you know nothing about finance.

I’m content to say they don’t. Mostly because they don’t exist. The cost of taxes fall on real people. What I hate is the popular fallacy that they “pass it on” to consumers. That doesn’t happen, unless you have a gun pointed at consumer’s heads. What happens, really, is cost is carried back to the origin of production. Which means two things: anyone with a stake in the business is denied profit and the Forgotten Man doesn’t get paid.

Completely agree, but show me one government school graduate who after 13 years in the system understands dollars and sense (pun intended).

We let communists and socialists teach our kids about the free market and that’s insane. I was talking to some kids and they keep telling me that the government had to intervene as the market was failing. They didn’t see the government as the cause, but the solution.

Reagan would be puking. On second thought, he’d be out their convincing. Have you ever heard his radio addresses while he was in the “wilderness”?
