- Don't buy the trickle down theory any more. They invested in China not the US. Oh, and by the way... Yeah there have been tax breaks and incentives for corporations to move to China and out of the US...... Hey Mitt, got to love the Fact Checkers... Bet they learned to read and count with Big Bird just like the rest of the 47%...
"Corporate profits are at a 50-year high while unemployment is also at a 50-year high. If it was true that the rich and business were the job creators, we'd be drowning in jobs today." ~ Nick Hanauer [follow this link to find a short clip and analysis of the rise of contingent work in the US economy: http://www.thesociologicalcinema.com/1/post/2013/03/contingent-workers-in-the-new-economy.html]
Let's put an end to this stupid LIE -- there's ample evidence that the economy works quite a bit differently than the Plutocrats and Oligarchs would have us believe. George Bush's ginormous tax cut should've also caused us to be drowning in jobs. Its effect was quite the opposite. MIDDLE CLASS CONSUMERS ARE THE REAL JOB CREATORS!!
Wrap Your Heads Around This One. Yep.. Remember The Bush Tax Cuts That Constantly 'Took Away Jobs.' The Only Thing It Did Is Make The Wealthy More Greedy... Got It !!
Wake up, the rich are NOT job creators. They don't care about you, neither do their Republican puppets.
I wish folks in the media would just call them on their shit when the rich fatcats proclaim they are "job creators"
I wonder where he got the 50 year high data? It would be nice to have, just in case I'm asked.
CORPORATE PROFITS ARE AT A 50-YEAR HIGH while unemployment is also at a 50-year high.
Just talking common sense!

Who are the real welfare queens? Reagan's catch phrase to deter the view from the real queens his handlers supported. Why there needs to be age limits, for presidents, but also for the house and senate. Too old is too old!

How can a mother send her child into to a war that has a Commander in Chief that second quesses everything for his own advantage? Freedom was fought hard for and the legacies of those freedom fighters is being spit on everyday by Barack Obama. If the plan had not been in place to find Osama Ben Laden, would Barack Obama have initiated it? Doubtful. He has a different agenda!
and they are all so happy to be slaves, as long as they have the worst president EVER!!!!!

This type of propaganda is name calling. It displays Mitt Romney on a poster with the quotes, "Yes We Can, Get Worse". It uses Barack Obama's famous slogan, "Yes We Can", to make Romney seem like someone who is going to make the United State worse, persuading people to vote against him.
This is an example of Name Calling propaganda. Name Calling is using an unpleasant label or description to harm a person, group, or product. This ad portrays that under the rule of Mitt Romney the country would get worse.

buying my government

I don't mind you being rich. I mind you buying my government. So true, and thanks to the citizen's united decisions people can literally buy as much of the election as they want.
Get the FACTS about Obamacare at www.healthcare.gov Sign up on Oct. 1 Let's show the GOP what real hope and change looks like! Truth be told...
Truth be told...aka The Koch Brothers who are spending over $850 million to try to elect Scott Walker so he can eliminate laws against big oil and against corporations.
.Exactly why I won't vote, your vote does not count, because your vote has already been pre chosen by a rich person, a corporation trying to slide something under the rug, yet sheeple will fill the voting booths thinking that their thoughts count for something, when the only count that is being done is how many people are still buying the lie.
This is what critics and detractors of the Occupy Movement don't understand -- it's NOT necessarily anti-capitalism, it's about capitalism completely out of control. The consumer , the middle class, and the poor are being hurt greatly by corporate greed and the gross amount of money funneled to congress by the corporations and the Chamber of Congress
You would think people that protect the rich and try to look down on the left as lazy poor people when more than half of the right is in the exact boat as what they see the left as would get such a simple concept. They are too brainwashed to see that truth though.
this is the truest thing EVER in 2014 America

"If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it." ~ Stephen Colbert
Stephen Colbert explains how being a "Christian nation" is really a relative perspective of philosophy.
This Stephen Colbert quote is only one piece of an entire mosaic of images and meditations, "A Visitor's Guide to Street People" (http://www.homelessguide.com/). Well worth looking at. Very cool!
