Are the Republicans right and  the rest of us crazy?
This morning I had a thought (don’t you hate when that happens), and it made me sit up and think. With all the massive unemployment, people getting downsized. Companies downsizing. Maybe I thought, are the Republicans on to something. Are they right? Maybe there is some truth in all that crazy on the side of the rich. Maybe they have the answer, and the rest of us are too dumb to see the truth.   
On the one hand, we pay too much in taxes, but without taxes, there would be no fire fighters, national parks, police, sanitation, military or public education. No FBI, CIA, funding for all overseas activity by our government. There would be no Welfare, Medicare, Social Security, or any basic human services.. 
And if the taxes weren’t there, everything would then be run privately. No government overhead. No tremendous debt. China suck it! America would literally be the land of the free.
Of course the job creators with all that extra cash (sans taxes), would have more money to invest with. They could then hire millions of more employees, lots more people would have money to burn. With all that extra money, people would spur our economy to greater glory. Salaries would rise. People could afford their own insurance and medical. All in the world would be great.
Of course, with this theory they would probably be super corporations controlling their industries. They could charge what they want. Raise their prices at any moment. Therefore, all of the items mentioned before, plus anything else I skipped (that our taxes currently pay for) since there were no safety regulations, there would be nothing to protect us from corporate greed. Whoops, didn’t think about that did you? The ‘job creators’ would control everything. They would lower their wages. And raise their prices for their profit margins. The vicious circle would begin again, but this time even much worse. Our ‘pitiful’ economy would seen like nirvana if that ever would happen. Until we are back in the middle ages, Where the few would run the whole enchilada.  
You think its bad now. Just wait if a Republican gets into the White House.
Just one man’s opinion
