    Clinton, McCain emerge as comeback winners in New Hampshire primary



    WASHINGTON - Democrat Hillary Clinton pulled off an unexpected narrow victory in New Hampshire on Tuesday, dramatically rescuing her bid for the White House in a tense battle with Barack Obama.
    Clinton, who's fighting to become the first woman in the Oval Office, mounted a surprisingly strong showing after bracing for a second defeat following her devastating third-place showing in Iowa.

    Republican John McCain also nabbed a major comeback victory, putting him solidly back in his party's nomination race.
    While Obama, vying to make history as the first black U.S. president, scored big among independents and voters between 18 and 24, Clinton attracted lower-income voters and seniors and did best among voters citing the economy as their top concern.
    But a big factor for Clinton was women voters, who had gone over to Obama in large numbers in Iowa. Nearly half in New Hampshire were once again supporting her, while Obama got only a third.

    You can try, but in essence you can NOT successfully tax corporations. Corporations by their nature will make their profit. If you tax them 10% higher, they'll simply raise prices 10%. Sure you can 're-distribute' the wealth and pass those corporate taxes to those who are less fortunate, however all you'll do is increase their cost of living at the same time and leave them in the same position. The only way the Democrats 'economic plan' would work is if corporations and the 'elite wealthy' decided to take less profit and eat the taxes.

    Its not gonna happen. For one if I was in their shoes I'd raise prices to cover tax increases too!!

    Nice to see some people actually pay attention to this basic concept.

    Well, actually middle class pays for the tax raise, along with every consumer, poor to rich. It is called SOCIALISm. It is where we are headed if we continue to vote democrats and continue to let the wrong republicans get into office.
    This is why I am voting AGAINST Obama.

    The problem is that too many people like to live in an idealistic fantasy where the Robin Hood isn't a story but rather a reality. Even my economics professors in college tried to parlay the wonders of socialist systems. Although I did get an A on my Advanced MacroEconomics case study. I did a little paper that did a comparative analysis of free market system economies and socialist economies around the world. The key point he liked was that I wrote three pages on why I couldn't include the US in the case study due to the regulations and restrictions we've placed on our economy that land us square in the middle between free market capitalism and state restricted socialism.

    Alas, I'm a nerd and I'm boring most of you.

    Okay, let's work this out logically without a lot of emotion.


    If you vote for Obama....



    You get this.....



    But if you vote for McCain....



    You get this...




    I don't know about you guys, but looking at this in a logical manner, McCain appears to be the better candidate.
