    I guess gun violence would be the term shootings fall under. And they die to massive blood losses, organ, or brain failure not getting shot if we really want to split hairs, LOL

    I wouldnt say all of them, more like the ones that fit the bill. There are plenty that DO fit that bill and plenty that dont.

    Who demonizes success??? Youre nuts dude

    "Compromise" has gotten us $18 trillion + in debt.

    Compromise where the same philosophies that created our huge problems are not compromises at all...but destructive policies enacted for the sake of legislative harmony.

    Interesting debate....all I gotta say is you guys in the states are not even a constitutional republic anymore. The spending by the federal government (by both parties) has been a disgrace. You have a TON of unfunded liabilities in etitlements and national debt that your grandkids will be left with.

    The Democratic party are basically a bunch of far left radical socialists these days (JFK was probably the last respectable Dem) and the Republicans have all been frauds since Reagan. G.W spent more than anyone before him, only president to outspend him is Obama. The reason I care is because I really like the US, if you guys are screwed; in a lot of ways, so are we.

    I cant speak for all of you, but it'd be much easier to stimulate a bad economy if i had more expendable income, no?
    In all fairness, the top 20% richest ppl pay most of the taxes.....if anyone dodges taxes I agree that's wrong, that's why it's a crime. I'll be the first to say they should close the loopholes and off-shore avenues for people breaking the law.

    As for federal income tax, do you think it's acceptable that 50% of US citizens don't even pay any of it? I personally think that's absurd. Imagine if a bowling club operated that way, half of you people don't have to pay and you get to decide how much the other half pays....it's insanity.
