It just really makes me nervous when people start going on about how "unfair" the capital gains tax rate is. I mean, we are not rich, but we do have investments, and any raise in that tax rate is going to affect us big time. And it will also discourage investment overall, which is bad for the economy, as our candidates seem to understand, but the media/left cannot wrap their little heads around it.

Along with Daniels, who I like, I very much wish that Christie was running. Every time I see him interviewed, I think he is just completely awesome. If things go badly this time around, I hope he jumps in next time. Or I'd love to see him as a VP pick.

Yeah, I know what you're saying about capital gains tax. It isn't a bad thing that it's taxed lower. The thing that gets me is that some people use that system and take advantage of it so that most of their earnings are from capital gains and not considered income.

Personally, I think our entire tax system is, pardon the language, fucked. We need to just start over with a clean slate and redo everything.

I agree about Christie. I saw several interviews with him as well and he impressed me. I really wish he was in the race but maybe the timing wasn't right. VP would be awesome because it can be a huge stepping stone. Or, you know, Romney could die and then we'd end up with a decent president. Just putting it out there....lol.

Ain't that the truth.
