True. But I was making the point that conservatives think that only liberals are partaking in social programs.

Although I don't necessarily agree with the idea of the income tax, it must be in place especially with today's deficit. There's no other way to get rid of it, however the rich should be taxed more, and these Bush tax cuts that have been going on for far too long are just doing more and more harm, day by day...
Agree as well. As I previously explained, I labled your comments "misguided" because I assumed your were intentionally referring to these systems as products of Obama/democrats.

There's a trend in these forums to tag the current administration with blame for long-standing issues, from the corporate tax rate, to foreign policy, nuclear energy, social programs, and more. Look at the threads in this forum: they are ALL started by conservatives, and they are ALL anti-Obama/ anti-democrat. So don't be surprised when we get defensive.
