I believe that we should have no income tax, but rather a higher sales tax so that way people can be taxed based on how much money they are actually using. I guess using the term "large taxes" isn't correct, but rather tax money that is being used for social security, medicare, and medicaid. Conservatives don't like seeing their money being wasted on programs that have failed to fix the issue that they are designed to fix.

You don't see that political correctness and leftist terms like "social justice", "white privilege", "microaggressions", "trigger warnings", and "safe spaces" are all ways of the left to instill fear and intimidation?

You don't seem to want to listen to numbers, so I'll try feelings and morality. I oppose this new wave of feminism, because I don't believe that this truly for equality. Feminist groups consistently harass, boycott, and in some cases even shut down Men' Rights meetings. If feminists were so pro-equality, they would want to extend the olive branch to Men's Rights groups instead of trying to silence them. (This is where my bias in the matter probably lies). First-wave feminism fought for Women's suffrage. Second-wave feminism fought for workplace rights. Now, third-wave feminism is fighting for the right for women to engage in self-destructive practices and get away with, while they make sure that men can't.

According to the Brookings Institute, you only need to do three things if you don't want to be poor in the United States. Finish High School, Don't get pregnant out of wedlock, and get a job. That's it. If you do those three things you will not be permanently poor in the United States. If your permanently poor in the United States, you are obviously not good with money. As for the stock market, I was mainly talking about privately owned SEP IRA's and ROTH IRA's, as the government doesn't need to manage my money for me (because they're horrible at it). As for you last point, it's the government's lack of screening for mental illness that causes that issue. Take them to a mental institute, give them lithium, and then they can live normal and productive lives. Plus not having people screened for mental illness is the same reason that we have some nut-job shooting up a public venue every so often. When was the last time you heard of a major shooting incident and the person didn't have mental health problems. As being autistic myself, I fully agree that the government should take the mental health issue head on. The homeless situation in the United States is embarrassing, and there is definitely the supply of housing needed. All you need is the demand. The issue is, the homeless don't want to get off of welfare. Why would a homeless person do anything when the government hands them a check at the beginning of each month simply for living and breathing? Also, the crash of 2008 was a direct result of the Clinton administration and their creation of subprime mortgages for the housing market.

You know what, your correct in that aspect on corporate welfare. And I'm willing to accept when I'm wrong about something. I do agree with you, corporations should now get welfare. However at the same time, that doesn't mean I agree with the current tax structure and how it's keeping large businesses (even small businesses) from growing.

Second, you'll never see that social security money ever again I can tell you that. Personally I find the concept of social security immoral because the people receiving it today payed a fraction of what we pay today, and it makes people dependent on the government (which conservatives dislike if you haven't noticed). It's also kind of insulting for the government to tell me that I am too stupid in order to save up for retirement. What I'm saying as in terms of the stock market is that if you took the money that the government has raised in social security and allowed private citizens to invest in accounts like SEP IRA's or ROTH IRA's, people would see a much bigger rate of return. Conservatives aren't against government putting money into the stock market, we just hate large taxes and unnecessary regulatory matters. On the idea of the banks losing everyone's money, that's the reason the FDIC was created, and I totally support having that organization in place. Plus, using that example doesn't really work with regards to being affected by other peoples decisions. People don't have to invest their money in the banks. Sure, bank accounts are insured by the FDIC but that doesn't mean it's full proof. Once again, people get the idea that the banks are "too big to fail."

You say that both sides contest that if you disagree, you get to take action against that person. However, I've never seen a incident of when a Bernie Sanders supporter was called insults and had things thrown at him or her, while the Ted Cruz supporter got accepted with open arms. I GUARANTEE you that if I walk out of my house right now wearing a Ted Cruz shirt people would freak the f* out while if I wear a Bernie Sanders shirt I will face little to no opposition. The reason for that, the left side of the spectrum overwhelmingly employs fear and intimidation in order to silence those from the right.

Firstly, I never accused you of lying. Don't make character charge on me like that.

Secondly, the wage gap cannot work because it is economically illogical. This gained traction because the narrative is usually stronger than the truth. The truth is troublesome and dangerous, because the truth suggests that people make choices and their are ramifications for those choices. There is a law on the books that prohibits discrimination towards someone because of gender. Also, if you truly believed that women were getting paid 77 cents for every dollar a man makes, only women would be working. Why? Because those supposedly corporations would just hire women all day and just simply pay them less. Once again, statistically speaking, Women who work 40 hour weeks earn 88 percent of what men make. That doesn't mean that men and women work the same amount of hours overall. Turns out, many women who are married and have kids take the time out to have their kids. It's not surprising then that single women who have not married earn 96% of what men make. The 4% difference? That take into the account that men on average work riskier jobs and take on jobs with a higher risk of firing. It's also proven that men take on degrees that are in the STEM subjects more then that of women, and are more likely to ask their boss for a raise.

As for abortion, nobody has the right to kill an unborn child. That's not a reproductive right. Contraception is also more accessible than it has ever been in human history, so at this point is actually irresponsible to conceive a child you do not want.

Onto the rape culture topic, there is no doubt that rape and domestic violence are worth while things to talk about. However, it is also worth noting that there has never been any rapist in the history of the world that decided not to rape thanks to a Joe Biden service announcement. The fact that rape and domestic violence is on the rise is also nonsense. From 1995-2012, sexual assault victimization has declined by 58%, domestic violence fell by 63%, and serious intimate partner violence against women has dropped 72%.

That's why I'm saying that it's a great time to be women, and also why we don't need anymore of this whinny feminist B.S.

I don't know what else to say, if this isn't black and white enough I don't know what is.

About the welfare issue. I'm totally fine with the upper class getting some limited amount of corporate welfare, because the last time I checked, a poor person has never offered me a job...EVER. I'm also fine with certain sections of the unemployed getting certain types of welfare (particularly the physically disabled). It is the conservative mentality on the minimum wage idea that social programs are drying up the economy. If we truly want to boast our economy, take all the money that the government gets from social security, medicare, and medicaid, and put it in the stock market. Our markets would basically change overnight. On the idea that the free market doesn't do anything to help people that fail because of someone else's problems, please give me an example of when that ever happens.

Let me clarify. Personally I'm a Republican. Also personally, I HAAAATTTTEEEE Trump! I think he's quite possibly a spawn of Satan himself. (That's besides the point). I just don't understand, what policies of Hillary Clinton do you like?
