    Tax hikes on the wealthy means more money for such worthy endeavors, supposing the politicians actually followed through and committed to the infrastructure.

    Your turn! I know you have some good ones!
    I do this! I love cheap gas and hate fracking!

    I am a living example!

    Thinking the value of homes wouldn't drop when they were being built at a record breaking pace because everyone knows when you supply more of something the demand (and the price) always goes up. Duh.

    One or both of us is missing something. If it's a consistent ideological position (except possibly for dishonest politicians not keeping their promises) then I wouldn't call it cognitive dissonance. Even if it disagrees with the position of someone elsewhere on the ideological spectrum.

    Giving to charities and religious orgs (and reducing my taxable income by doing so) really helps people desperately in need and is doing god's work....Merry Christmas and god bless us everyone (me especially!)

    There are 47% of people in this nation (I won't mention any names) that are takers and to help them out would cause them to be forever dependent upon handouts and unlike all us hardworking people, they live high off the hog on their food stamps! Let's cut the single welfare mamas and their children (abortion is murder, you know and birth control leads to promiscuity) off and save them from a lifetime of dependency on others.....

    A holy text is the revealed word of an infinitely wise God, but is also riddled with falsehoods, immorality, inconsistencies, disproven assertions, and complete and utter hogwash.
