Middle class here.
1. How does taxing the "rich" help the poor? There is no correlation between taxation and government spending.
2. Has a "poor" man ever employed you?
3. I don't need or want the government telling me what I can and cannot do in every aspect of my life.
4. I disagree with most on the right with abortion. It is
Freedom is > Equality.
Individual rights > community rights.
Smaller government is > more regulations and laws
Unfortunately most republicans are the same as most democrats with the exception of a few choice areas, abortion, guns, taxes... Neither cares about the country, only about giving hand outs to their prospective voters in return for votes and continued congressional employment.
